Block Broken

My lastest bout with writer's block has come to a end. Yay! Yesterday I wrote over 1700 words. I got past the hard part in the chapter by cheating just a little. I didn't know how to describe their date without making it sound boring so I wrote a short paragraph describing it and then moved them onto the end of the night when they went home and the real action started. Chapter 5 is now completely done, until the rewrite, and it is the longest chapter in the book so far.

Waiting on the voices in my head

I started working on some background material for Jackson's story since Come Back to Me is at a standstill right now. I know what the job of the heroine will be and what she looks like. But I still don't know her name. I am hoping that the little creative voices in my head will speak up and tell me who she is. I want a simple name for her because Jackson's name is uncommon. The only ones I have come up with are unusual ones like Katia and Adria. Those might be used in a different story sometime but they are not right for this heroine.
Spencer and Allie, the hero and heroine in Come Back to Me, are really coming alive for me the more I write about them. I won't start Jacksons story until I have just as strong of feeling about the heroine as I already do about Jackson, Spencer and Allie.

Flashback Version

I don't think the change in format is going to work. I wrote a little bit of it and it just doesn't seem strong enough to put in the book. Other bad news, I haven't written in days. I am stuck again.

Change of format

I am thinking of changing the format of my novel. I want to put in 5 flashback chapters. They would show they most important parts of Allie's and Spencers backstory. I haven't written them yet so I will have to see if it works out.
I did write the whole prologue today. It is 1500 words. It has a short section at the end from the villan's POV. At the end of the novel there will be another short section with his POV before he dies.
