I love to write–but I love to have written even more!
Over the past week, I’ve been juggling between a few stories Iâ€™m working on. For one, I have to complete a proposal for a Harlequin Nocturne romance that Iâ€™d suggested some time ago. I had fun getting back into that story and into Alpha Force mode. Alpha Force is my Nocturne miniseries about shapeshifters. Love them! I wrote a rough first draft and Iâ€™m now editing it.
Plus, Iâ€™ve come up with some ideas for a couple of new mystery series. Iâ€™m also working on proposals for them. And, yes, Iâ€™ve done rough first drafts, for one of them, at least.
I must have a lot of characters occupying my brain, since I do have to call on them, usually one at a time, and have them speak up even when Iâ€™ve been working in a different genre. They always come through for me and tell me what comes next on the page. Itâ€™s a good thing Iâ€™ve been at this for a while.
How about you–do you have more than one character or type of story in your mind at a time? If so, how do you handle them?
