After a weekend of doing absolutely zilch on the writing front (well unless you call creating a blog writing related - hell yes! Of course it's writing related! What am I thinking?) I finally managed to finish Chapter 8 this morning so am feeling happy about that.
My current heroine has taken me over. She's the me I never was and never could be. My big mouthed alter ego who says what's on her mind before she thinks about the consequences. It's also my first foray into trying out first person present (another something I told everyone who cared to listen that I would never do... hmm, is there a pattern emerging here?)
But, it feels great to stretch my creative writing wings. For almost five years I concentrated solely on writing category romance, and now I've tried my hand at single title/mainstream... chic lit... and I love it. Of course, up until the middle of last year I swore blind I would never attempt to write a 100,000 word novel because I was only used to creating novels of half that length.
Yeah... my new motto is Never say Never, cause as soon as I swear I'll never do something I immediately rush out to try it.
There's a moral there somewhere. I think.
