What Sells Better?

Hope everyone had a marvelous holiday. Mine was good as always. My sister in law puts on a spread to die for. I don't know she does it.

So, I've been very short on inspiration the last few days. Maybe it's the commotion of having everyone home. They're restless and therefore make me the same way. Could be that work has got me in a tizzy. Spent a half hour with my supervisor and the CEO at my desk the other day. Not fun. But whatever the reason, I just haven't had the desire to do my editing. Or any other writing for that matter. I hate to say it, but Sims had more of a draw than my characters.

Then yesterday my daughter and I saw New Moon. Seeing Robert Pattison (or should I say Edward) made me want to check back in with my young adult fantasy that I started last year. It got me thinking, as I read it, about what is a better seller, a young adult fantasy or an "adult" fantasy (I'm not talking about erotica-that kind of fantasy, but the witches and dragons sort). I'm only about 22 pages into the story and I could go back and modify it to make it more for grown ups or I can take the path I'm on now and write it for teens.

What is the teen e-publishing market like? Sure I'd rather have it published in book form, but I like to keep my options open.

Sometimes I have a strong desire to be the next Stephanie Meyer instead of Nora.

Har har har.

Okay the troops are awakening. Time to get down to business.

Moving On
I've made the decision to stop doing NaNo this year. Though I think I have a plot I can work with, it's just not coming together the way I want. I'm less than a quarter of the way through when I should be well past half way through. I don't think I get that much writing done on a daily basis to reach the goal anyway.

So I've decided to A)Get the edits finished for No Going Back. B)Write the query and synopsis for NGB. C)Work on edits for Forever Home. I wonder if I can resubmit it to Samhain after the rewrites are done. Must ask my editor. D)Work on rewrites for Dreamer's Sea.

That's the plan unless I get this awesome idea in the meantime.

What a rainy day we had yesterday. And I had to choose yesterday to track all over NH. From home up to Concord and then down to Nashua then home. It poured all the way. Not fun.

Today is all about laundry, putting new tires on my van and fabric shopping. Million thrills a minute.

It's Time!
Yes, November 1st is here. It's 4:04am (though it feels like 5:04am) I should be sleeping but couldn't. So here I am, ready to start one of the toughest months of the year when it comes to writing.


That stands for National Novel Writers Month although I'm sure everyone here knows that.

I've decided to go with the new fresh idea instead of the rewrite. I hope I've made the right choice. It feels right, but only time will tell if I'll be able to get it done. Unlike the other story I don't know everything about what's going to happen (except the happily ever after and some details in between), but that's what makes this fun, right?

I need to do 1666 words a day to finish by November 30th. I'll be posting my progress over at JaNoWriMo Fingers are crossed! No, they're not. Makes it very difficult to type.

The Legacy:


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?. .
