Phew!

I've made a breakthrough!

Phew!

I tell ya, for a while there, I was REALLY worried.

I've NEVER had writer's block.

Every time I've finished a book, another idea popped into my head right away.

Maybe just a hazy hazy hazy idea....but, still....something to work from.

I have just wrapped up a book. (Working on copyedits as we speak...)

But a new idea? Um........

Knock knock.

Hellooooo?

Anybody in there?

Nothing.

My idea box looked like this:

So I've been really worried.

I've been thinking and thinking and thinking and thinking.

I have a character. (Actually, a couple of characters.)

I have a first sentence.

But no title. I can't start without a title. (I know, I know.....kinda weird)

And, um, no STORY.

But I made an itty bitty breakthrough.

A title.

And a sorta kinda story.

Phew!

And you're not going to tell us the title, are you?

(I wouldn't, cause that's how I roll, baby.)

Sure - I'm all about blabbing. I've never been known for having tight lips (or tight anything, for that matter).

Title =

drum roll....

LOVE IT!

My idea box is empty, too. I have a title and a character, but no plot.

I need to go to bed earlier and wait for it to come to me.
