I've been handed a challenge. A good challenge. One I'm looking forward to, actually. And you may laugh when I tell you what it is...
I'm writing two soft romance stories.
Who knew, right? Romance is certainly part of my sci-fi stuff. I enjoy stories with a love interest. I think most of us are wired that way. But I never pegged myself as a romance author. I'm not all that interested in the genre. I have good friends who are, and I'm happy for them. The world needs romance. Obviously.
I'm actually finding it to be exciting. I've created my characters, given them backstory as well as forward plot, and found those heartwarming moments that make us all sigh. Now, I need to take them from outline to story form.
I'm planning to use NaNoWriMo for this. (If you've not heard of NaNo, check it out. Loads of fun, stress, coffee, chocolate, and words.) It's good motivation for writing production.
I'll fill you in more about the stories as they develop. I don't want to give away too much. But I can say, it's just the beginning. I know there will be more to follow.
