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!

Organizing...And Blogging...And So...

So...

I was thinking about my blog here and realizing it's grown into a bit of a monstrosity. I've fallen into the trap of having too many things here that sort of relate, but could be more effective in different, more focused areas. So I'm thinking I need to split stuff up a bit. I'll focus on the aspects of writing romances, developing writing vocabulary and skills here while focusing on the research and specific stories elsewhere. I don't know--sometimes it makes more sense than others. At the moment it makes a bunch of sense, though.

So here I'll do the Romance Writer's Word of the Day (except weekends), I'll start Manic Mondays again, comment on the life of a would-be-writer, discuss stuff related to publishing and the business of writing, post my own occasional reviews and and link to polls, contests, publishers, agents and prompts I like.

The specifics of my growing "Hollow Hearts and Hollow Hills" novel will wind up elsewhere (there will be links here to it, of course). And the growing "Dreams in Red" novel (earlier called "Barrister's Bastard") will have a place all its own. It seems it wants to grow pretty badly (or perhaps pretty well ;-) right now.

I hope that all makes sense... Maybe after I sleep it will to me again, too. ;-)

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.
