Decided to change the name of Executive Demands to After Hours With the CEO. What do you think?
The first three chapters have been sitting on my desk since last Thursday. I wanted to read them with a fresh eye after a couple of days to catch any grammar/spelling mistakes.
I sent my revamped Synopsis ( and who invented the hell that is a synopsis, anyway?) to CP's for some input. Ready to make those changes today and get this baby to the post office by tomorrow. And of course, one daughter is home sick today and the other is studying for exams. I'm at Starbucks now but the chairs are hard on the back so will head home in a couple of hours. I'll need to find head phones to drown out the constant questions when I get there.
Also spent the weekend working on my next short contemporary for the SYTYCW titled, Secrets, Lies and Silk Sheets. Not the most original title but I like it enough to move forward. So much fun to work on a new project. I always start with names of all my characters and it often takes hours to nail them down. I have his external goal and I think a good core story question. I had a very tight external goal for her and intense motivation. Very High Stakes. But, I didn't want to write that story. It was very emotional and I just couldn't see writing a romance when a child's life was at stake. Who can fall in love with someone who hold's the key to a child's life? So, I kept her motivation but lightened up the reason behind it. I hope it works.
So what are you working on? Do you take a break from writing for Christmas.
