Head out of the sand.
I haven’t posted in quite awhile, simply because I’ve been very busy. I totally rewrote The Chase is Over, my very first manuscript, and though the basis of the story remained unchanged, I refocused the POV’s, strengthened the plot, and ramped up the tension both in the relationship between Alexandra and Tyler and in the mystery of the red envelopes. I happily mailed a submission (after kissing it ‘good luck’) last week.
I’ve also been training for the inaugural Louisville, Kentucky, Ironman which takes place at the end of August while working on my newest story, Mystical Connections. I am so excited about this one, because like Jenna, the heroine, I believe everything in life happens for a reason. This story is about destiny.
I utilize the hours of training as think time, outlining plot points, planning scenes, and dreaming up twists that will have the reader turning pages to find out what happens next. Jenna and Aidan are young, and the tension between them is intense, and I am having a blast bringing them together (or not)!
Of course, while I work on MC and work out, I’m also putting the polishing touches on Passion’s Race, the story about a business woman turned pro triathlete – I hope to have it ready to go by the time I head to the RWA National Conference in early July.
By the way, I got a new mug for my morning caffeine with a motto on it that I can easily live by … it’s a “Life is good” mug with the saying, “Do what you like. Like what you do!” scripted across the back. I am loving what I do in all aspects of my life. Hope you are, too!
