Lovin' This Process!

This is where I am right now in writing my first fiction book! Researching. Mapping out my story boards. Developing characters. Its an exciting yet daunting task. I have difficulty in making decisions on a daily basis to begin with, but I am trusting the process -
I will edit, delete, revise as I go along!
It's all good!

Yes! Yes! YES!!!

     Into the initial phase of writing my first fiction book...although it's just me sitting here at my desk researching and brainstorming, so far I am enjoying the process.
     One thing I've decided, is to turn off my phone in the mornings. I'm always up before dawn and its the time of day when I am most creative. Any interruptions breaks my flow and then it's hard to get my writing mojo back. So with this new project, I am being selfish with my time. If anyone wants to annoy me, they may just end up in a book! HAHAHA!

Got Writer's Brain?

I do! I'm currently at that critical point where I am ready to start my next project. So many ideas are coming at me and I am keeping a note pad on my desk and on my night stand at-the-ready for when a spark hits me!

The idea for this new book came on the heels of The House on Pancake Hill. So, yesterday I made the "commitment" to dive right in and get things started. As a writer, you go through phases - this cartoon captures it all! I don't have a title yet, but I made a list of twenty names each for males or females, sent them to my bestie, Kathleen and asked her to pick five each of her favs. 

Then I needed a setting - I truly wanted to use St. Augustine as a backdrop, but there are other local writers who have already used it. And,since my budget is limited, I cannot afford to fly off to an uncharted destination to do research. Kathleen suggested someplace that I knew well. I made a few quick calls to chambers of commerce , convention and visitors' bureaus and tourism agencies. I requested packets of information to be mailed to me.

Next, I started a "story board" - complete with a column for each character's name. As ideas surface, I will write them on sticky notes and place them under the appropriate character. This is fun for me as I've never written fiction before. Little by little, I'm adding things such as personality profiles, clothing style, dialogue, skills, conflict, etc. I'm a visual person so I think this concept will work best for me. Then I can keep adding to the story board as I go along.

I published The House on Pancake Hill on Halloween so it's time to let my new ghosts emerge! Wish me luck!
