This blog follows how a romance novel set in the Borders of medieval Scotland is researched, written and hopefully *hopefully* published.

Join me on the writing journey and get inspired to try writing a little romance into your own life!

Returning Refreshed

Ah, the shore! Sparkling sands and glittering waves, saltwater taffy, fudge-making demonstrations, surrey avoidance, shopping, shopping and more shopping! Okay, so most of my shopping was of the “window” variety. Still it was wonderful and relaxing, I feel inspired again to write more of my romance novel Hollow Hearts and Hollow Hills.

I took the text with me in a printed or hardcopy version and actually flipped through it a few times, making notations. Cut an entire chapter (some of which will be interspersed as flashbacks, some will be saved for a possible "prequel"). Also discovered by deepening one scene (when Janet meets her potential husband) I can eliminate one that made me waAAay too uncomfortable. So, I got a little stuff done (had a lot of fun, though), and it looks like I'll pull a three-day writing excursion there in the off-season. Hopefully this book will be put "to bed" by then and I'll be working with something else.

Hope you're writing or doing something refreshing!

You are the Huntress... No matter how many times you try and prove yourself to be good, you always seem to be stuck in the same rut, with the reputation as a "bad girl". Guys love to hang around you because you're easy to talk too.
