Busy, busy, busy...

I've been quiet lately (still surfing the blogs) but trying not to distract myself too much as my writing time is limited and I'm trying to make the most of what time I do have.

Following my R from MH with the offer to sub a new partial, I've been contemplating conflict and brainstorming what are hopefully stronger internal conflicts for my new characters.

I think the conflict I've chosen is emotional. They both think they want hugely different things in life but a spanner will be thrown in the works, when life chooses an alternate direction for both of them.

Brainstorming this book has made me realise even more so how generous and lovely the romance community is. My beautiful CPs are being so giving with their wisdom, the Bootcamp group I'm a part of has also offered their thoughts and some published author friends have gone beyond the call of duty!

So... I've penned the first chap and am almost finished chapter two. If I'm a little quiet it's because I'm writing and rewriting like crazy in an aim to get my new partial off to M&B by the beginning of November.

It's a deadline... and I'm sticking to it!!
