I’m about 30k into writing my 8th romantic comedy book and I have to spend a lot of my time dreaming of romantic scenarios and describing gorgeous men. It’s a hard job, but someone has to do it! My latest character is in her forties and has had a troubled past, but she’s so feisty that she constantly makes me giggle about what she’s getting up to next.
I don’t know if it is the same for all writers, but my mind is full of the constant chatter of characters and I don’t often know what they are going to do until my pen hits the paper. I have chapter guides and full character descriptions, but I then just sit down and write.
I’ve also been making a few more memes this week and thought I’d share a couple, as I should have been doing a higher word count each day but managed to fit in some procrastination. I’ve just completed a book tour with Rachel’s Random Resources and as usual it was run beautifully and I was lucky enough to find new readers and see amazing reviews. A big thank you to the tour hosts who take time to post, share, read and review books, just for the love of books. You are all incredible and as an author, it’s heart warming to chat to people who are so passionate about writing.
Have a great week everyone.
Be the first to know when my next book is available! Follow me on social media for updates.
