Bits and pieces of paper are jumbled in a pile on my desk, their scribbles ranging over a wide spectrum:
- One lists potential titles, including one that sounds too horror-novelly, a great title that unfortunately sounds too much like a romance novel, and a suggestion that’s almost on target.
- Another bit includes new plot twist suggestions such as, what if the ex-wife real estate developer, in a fit of peevish revenge, bought our hero’s house in a foreclosure sale?
- A third notes character enhancement comments: X is too angry – back him off a bit.
- And so on…
Looks like I’ve got a lot of sorting, updating, and organizing to do this weekend before plunging back into the fray.
But it’s all good.
The enforced time away from actual writing means my imagination got to re-examine the basic plot (still good), fiddle with character development (more believable) and incorporate some really neat lightning bolt twists that came out of nowhere.
Just a few more days…
