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!

Daily Word Count

Did 1,523 words so far today on Hollow Hearts and Hollow Hills. Jennet's confronting her past and doing what most of us do initially when we realize something distasteful about ourselves--she's running away from it.

I also wrote 3,092 words on an alternate project I'll put a word counter for in my sidebar. It blends in with this site and other things I've done, hopefully building a publishable bridge.

It's lacking a title (I'll label it WIP II)--I wrote a good one on a scrap of paper just before I raced down to visit my family most recently... Who knows where it is now? I need to get back into the habit of carrying a notebook everywhere. I used to do that all the time and now have about a half dozen tiny notebooks filled with notes, sketches and ideas.

Take care!
