Sometimes Ya Gotta Ask...What's The Point?
While I'm thrilled that I've reached over 90K on Dreamer's Sea I'm wondering if I'm just rambling now. What's the point of the story? Have I lost it by making it this long? At this point I just want it done. Over with. Kaput. Adios muchachos. Yet I find myself writing another scene... a scene that probably has no purpose. It was supposed to lead to the conclusion of the story but since I've decided to end the story another way then I wonder if I need this scene at all. Maybe it's time to just put this baby to bed. I'm so eager to start another writing project that at this point I don't even want to look at DS for the edits. Not yet. Sure I can't wait to start my search for an agent, but I don't want to sacrafice my story just to have it done.

So today after work I think I'll have to sit down and reevaluate where I am and where the story is heading. The last thing I want to do is to keep writing for the sake of a high word count. I'm already way over what any Harlequin or Silhouette line would take-not that I'm aiming for them necessarily.

Well we got about a foot of snow, all said and done, yesterday. It was a treat to shovel it. Luckily we have a snowblower that did most of the heavy stuff. Now I just wish our bleepin neighbors (teenagers basically) would get off their backsides and shovel out their parking spot instead of having their friends just driving through and over the foot of snow that's there or parking in someone elses spot. Oh how I want a house of my own.

    Yep... if you gotta have snow, then what we got yesterday was the kind to have. Light. Fluffy.

    And, 90,000 words is so far out of my ability to imagine. Getting 65,000 is the best I've ever done. Good luck!

    Good luck on deciding what to do with your story. I'm sure as you read back over it, it will tell you whether or not it's finished. They have a way of doing that :-)

DREAMERS SEA (REDUX):


THAT KIND OF MAGIC--AVAILABLE NOVEMBER 17,2010 What's a witch to do when she refuses to use magic to find love? Beautiful Wiccan Charlotte Noone has a shop for magical supplies and a goddess who's pushing her to find the man of her dreams. When Patrick Riordan, a straight-laced non-believer enters her life, Charlotte falls madly in lust with him. Despite their very different lives, neither can stop the erotic journey they’ve embarked on, but will it be enough to break through their barriers so they can accept that love itself is magical?. .
