Beth Daniels, aka Beth Henderson chimes in on her upcoming OCCRWA class:
Sometimes the ideas rain down on you, right? And then there are other times when youâ€™re enduring a drought of them. Am I right?
Been there, lived that.
Oddly enough, there are more holidays out there than a writer can shake a quill atâ€¦if we had quills. Okay, so we shake rollerballs and mechanical pencils and cell phones capable of recording voice messages to ourselves.
True, these are the themes that generate calls for anthologies, but if itâ€™s a story with a word count that takes you into the novel range, the competition might be tough. Doesnâ€™t mean you back off of the first holidays that come to mind, just expand out from there.
I hope youâ€™ll join me for a yearâ€™s worth of considering the prospects of various holidays throughout the year when it comes to spinning romances. Visit OCCRWA.org here for more information and to sign up.
