I was reading the most amazing blog site yesterday, The Other Side of the Story, and I figured out what the problem was with my book. It is a premise story not a plot novel. It can be fixed. It will be fixed. But it is okay if I step away...for a little bit. It was after all my happy day. So I started brainstorming, plotting and planning the next book. Worked on it for 3 hours. Not a ton of time. I read yesterday that J.K. Rowlings planned for 5 years before she started any of the Harry Potter books. That is a freakishly long time. Or is it? It did work. She said when she started to write it was a matter of putting all of the notes and bits together. Would love for my first draft to be that simple.
Time to jump back in.
