I write to keep me sane. I write so that my words may outlive my life. I write to find redemption

So my new project, with the working title Bridesmaids, I am thinking of breaking up into 3 - 5 sections within the book. For example, if there are three characters each would have their name heading up a section of the book and that would discuss their wedding. Or I could just writer chapters with titles. But i am thinking of writing this as first person so that is why I want to make it clear who is speaking.

Heroine in Jackson's story

I did come up with a name for Jackson's leading lady, Natalia. He will be working on a case, as a private eye, that brings him into direct conflict with a case she is working on as a FBI agent. I gave up on the idea of giving her a plain name. None of those seemed to fit. I am not sure if it is because this heroine is not plain- she is fiesty, sexy and bold- or if it is because I do not like plain names.

Dry Spell

When I was writing a lot I posted in this blog often. But since I haven't been writing at all lately I haven't been blogging either. I want to get back to both. I want to write several complete manuscripts before I submit anything to a publisher and I am only wasting more time by not writing now.
I have been keeping up with the yahoo writers group I joined. The posts all come directly to my email which is great for getting my mind refocused on writing. I was trying to not work on any other mss until I finished Come Back to Me but all that has accomplished is not writing at all when I am stuck on CBTM. So I think I will try to work on this idea I have for a chick lit book about 4 friends who are all bridesmaids.

Personality Test

I took a personality test that said my personality is suited for being a writer.

The Idealist
You are creative with a great imagination, living in your own inner world.Open minded and accepting, you strive for harmony in your important relationships.It takes a long time for people to get to know you. You are hesitant to let people get close.But once you care for someone, you do everything you can to help them grow and develop.You would make an excellent writer, psychologist, or artist.

On Not Writing

I have not written anything more on my novel since my last post. It is so frustrating that my writing life is so sporadic. I have all the time in the world, these days, to write but inspiration is not always there.
