I don't even have the line edits for Privy yet and I'm already thinking of ideas for "Bloody Murder," the sequel, "Faerie Dust," urban fantasy and I'm thinking PR for "Privy to Murder." Lots going on.
I really need a synopsis for BM-unfortunate initials, hope that's not significant. I know elements I want in it but need to put things into a logical sequence since I work better with some kind of road map. I'm looking forward to the new direction I'm going with it, should be fun. I know some people can just do the stream of consciousness, let it pull me along, kind of writing. I can't. I need to have a plan or it falls apart in the middle. That doesn't mean I don't add or subtract or change the plan, I can do side-trips. But I work better if I have some idea of where I want to end up and an initial route to get there. What I haven't done, good or bad, or really detailed, pages long, character studies and synopsis as long as a novella. I'd rather write the book itself, learn about the characters as they grow and take over. My plotting synopsis is a sentence or two about each chapter. My official synopsis is only two to three pages.
Off the subject, another author, http://jocelynndrake.blogspot.com/ writes about the effect of a Victoria's Secret lunch bag on her male co-workers. Read it, too funny. Also visit Rinda Elliot, listed under blogs, for good music info. My music is often very dull classical but it soothes me and doesn't distract. If I have rock or bouncy country, my favorite, I'm singing along and not concentrating at all.
