Daniela Ark of www.danielaark.com is doing a monthly feature on WIP (Work in Progress) and has invited me to post. The idea is to talk about different aspects of WIP, and really, anything else. Thank you Daniela for inviting me along! Strange enough, this is exactly what has been going on in my writing life – Oh Work in Progress, it never ends!
Recently I was asked to make a list of everything I am working on, even ideas of things I think might be awesome. Surprise, surprise, I may have some sort of attention deficit disorder (probably – not may have – most likely) and I also have four pages of work in progress!
Yikes! Where did it all come from and, where, oh where is it going?
I think we can all agree that a lot of ideas are so much better than none. But let’s talk a minute about how to organize them. First of all, Curse of the Seven 70s is out and ready for you to review! What? You haven’t done that yet? Well, go do that, and then come right back… I’ll wait…
Now we come to Housebreaking Werewolves. I have already spoken a bit about this book in the information section on my books… what? You haven’t seen that yet? Well, when we’re finished here, you can go there and check it out.
Housebreaking Werewolves was going to be the third paranormal romantic comedy I have written, but Pete, my leading man, isn’t cooperating. Nope, he isn’t. Apparently he doesn’t want to have fleas, chase cars, or smoke expensive cigarettes. Pete wants to solve the mystery of why women are killing themselves all around him, why the police are looking at him like it was his idea, and perhaps the biggest mystery of all, what the heck happened to him in the last two weeks?
So, here’s my question to you, what’s an author to do when her characters write their own story?
