So the new year is here and I just took my daughter back to college.  I have a huge goal of writing 2 books this year and I'm not having a great start.  I got sick with bronchitis the day after Christmas and that really takes a toll on the body....LOL Here's to wishing that everyone has a great New Year and all your dreams come true. 😊

WEDNESDAY IS WHEN DAY!!!!

When does a good book stimulate the imagination?

 When is the best time to eat chocolate?

Well according to my daughter -- all the friggin time -- but for me it is comfort food so I eat chocolate when I'm feeling down or sad; when I feel happy and excited; when I'm writing and need some brain food.  Hmmmm, so maybe she's right.....LOL

WRITING ADVENTURE PART 3

WRITING ADVENTURE PART 3:

Well, the holidays are over.  I am taking my daughter back to college tomorrow.  I have not started the writing yet, but still been working out a lot of stuff in my head.  I was going through some of the sites where my books are sold and noticed some new reviews.  In one of the reviews, a woman asked for Jamie MacLeod's story.  That got me to thinking.  Hey, maybe I can make this a trilogy.  😮
I know, right?  Honestly, I had no plan to ever write another time travel Highland book after Highland Stone.  It is very exciting to see that people love my secondary characters so much that they want to see their stories too.

So the idea is developing in my head now on what to do about this trilogy?  It's still in the working stages but it has put a hold on my writing at the moment just because I may change up some things regarding the time travel and I need to work those out first.  So I'm back to the drawing board.

I've also put this outrageous goal on myself to write two books in 2017.  I had that same goal in 2016, but it didn't happen.  So, I will keep the goal until I reach it.  The plan is for this time travel book, and Book 3 of the Time Walkers Series.   

My critique partners (the Sassy Scribes) and I are going on a writers retreat in February.  That will give me a weekend to really focus on the writing.  I'm excited about that too.  It's nice to just lock up in a condo and do nothing but write and eat the whole weekend.  Okay, there might be some drinking in there too.  😀  That's just the first night though because after that release, we just get down to it.

I have come up with a few things already.  First, I've come up with a title for the trilogy and the title of the other two books.  Obviously, I don't want to reveal anything yet, but when I have more of this new idea finalized I'll share.

Until then, stay tuned.

Best,
