I have started writing my next novel.
An idea surfaced during a conversation with my boyfriend and his mother. I jotted it down in the memo pad on my cell phone and continued chopping vegetables.
The next day I woke up and heard the main character’s voice. I grabbed my notebook and began taking dictation.
The following day I wrote down other tidbits as they surfaced: memories and character sketches, scenes and dialogue, timelines and deadlines.
By the fourth day, I had enough to start my next book.
I wrote the first scene of chapter one today, and I’m thrilled.
It’s good to be writing professionally again.
