ROW80 Check In

Not much to report at the moment. This past week I’ve been working away at final edits on my paranormal romance novella, Tribute. Almost there! I also wrote a few thousand words of background and outline for the urban fantasy novel I’m working on. I haven’t started an actual draft yet. This week my goal is to finish outlining, and then I can start a draft.

  1. I love the background/ worldbuilding part of writing. To me it’s the most fun and the most important. I have been able to go back and pull large chunks of what I thought was freewriting or planning when I was stuck in the drafting phase and actually use it in the book. Plus I let myself do silly things like draw maps and pictures of people’s rooms or pets with crayons. It’s a fun stage.

  2. Thanks for all of the supportive comments!

    Vicki, that’s exactly what I needed to hear. The story I’m working on has come together in stages over about five years. It’s one I’ve always pondered between other projects. Lately it has really started to come together and I’m making really exciting connections… it is thrilling!!
