A good while back I began what was to be Book 2 of a romantic comedy.
The characters and story were fresh in my mind. I had great expectations at finishing the book in a matter of a couple of months. The storyline began like this.
Life took over-and every time I tried to write, the book turned to this.
I struggled with too much on my mind and had left the book too long. The story became fuzzy and I was unable to connect. A few months later I dug the manuscript from its file and read through what I’d written. I let it simmer, connected with the characters again and changed the outline. So, then I had this.
Things are looking up!
Now, I’m loving my characters again and appealing to my muse while I complete A Smoky Mountain Wedding in time for Christmas this year. I hope life is agreeable and the book comes to a close, because there’s Book 3 to jump into!
So watch out Muse! I won’t take no for an answer. 🙂
Name that deputy sheriff! He’s a twenty-five-year-old, quiet young man and as honest as the day is long, from Gatlinburg, Tennessee. When things get too busy around the jail, he gets a bit rattled. Think Barney Fife.
If you have a catchy first name, and if I use your suggestion, I’ll be happy to send you a free digital copy of A Smoky Mountain Wedding when it’s completed.
