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!

Writing

Yesterday was sort of haphazard. We spent some hours "in town."

A pal told me about the publishing of her second book through a major publisher. They loved her edits. I mentioned having "dropped her name." She chortled, not thinking her name was "droppable." I assured her it was, and could become even moreso. Frankly, she rocks. She doesn't write in this genre, but she's considering giving it a try.

Anyhow, I took my writing mags with me, but only got to flip through them briefly. I had one of those "Man, that's a good idea!" moments. Luckily it was about "Hollow Hearts and Hollow Hills."

I jotted it down and tried to get some writing-related stuff done.

I promised myself I'd get to bed at a respectable hour and wake up nice and early. Yeah. My son had a different idea. He woke up at midnight. Then 2:30am. 3:00. 3:30. 5. I jolted into wakefulness each time. I slinked into his room, patted his shoulder, petted his head, readjusted pillows and the sheet and said loving words into his ear. He'd sigh and sort of "settle in" again, then wake up soon again. And again.

So this morning, when I finally convinced myself to wake up and make coffee, I was already weary. I wrote, though. Not much. Nothing stunning. But it was writing, nonetheless.

Woo hoo.

So the word meter shall move again. ;-)

Hope you're writing. Even if it's not your best, just the exercise of writing something will help.

You can always edit later, right?
