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

Writing!

Woo-hoo! Okay, so I have really been pushing myself recently to get this book written. I actually hit a streak recently where I was pumping out a chapter every two days. They were rough, of course, but satisfactory.

But it's a trade-off. I write more, I read less. I throw myself into research and the creative aspects take a back seat until I've solved the problem. I still have one or two anachronisms I'm battling in my prologue, but perhaps my upcoming trip to the British Museum will help me sort it out.

At this point I can pretty soundly estimate 20 chapters (I've got my outline in a clearer state than before). I've sorted out my time period and it jives with the main things I want/need it to.

I even went trolling to find potential publishers and organized them in my hardcopy notebook. I've got my wishlist of who I'd want to be published by. I'll send stuff out to my first choices first.

But that'll be after my trip to Europe... Other goals still to complete...

Much LOVE!

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.
