The favourite thing I’ve written, is always the thing I’m writing right now!
It’s the story that’s in my head. It interrupts my thoughts at odd and unpredictable moments. The characters swirl in my head in that fuzzy stage just before you fall asleep, and the story plays like a movie, scene by scene in my brain. It ‘s the story that distracts me while I’m cooking, and sometimes thorough a conversation (usually leaving my husband shaking his head).
I can work on more that one story at once, but they have to be at different stages. I might be drafting a new story, editing an older one, and researching for a new idea all at the same time. It’s the story I’m drafting that usually wears the halo of favouritism.
My current favourite is a new series I’ve started. It’s a romantic suspense with paranormal elements. Or perhaps it’s more of a paranormal suspense with romantic elements. Or, come to think of it, a cosy mystery with paranormal and romantic elements! It’s about a group of women from 22 years to 60 years old who all share a link to magic and witchcraft. Of course each story features a murder and a bit of romance…
It’s a huge shift for me as I normally write dark urban fantasy ( It was my favourite at the time 😀 )
What makes this new series my favourite? I’m particularly enjoying:
- thinking more about the male leads in the story, how they are feeling and why
- working on bright and breezy dialogue
- twinning the threads of suspense, magic and romance together
The only thing I don’t like is that I’m such a slow writer. I plan 6 books, and I’m aiming to complete them all by the end of 2019. Hopefully they will still be the favourite thing I’ve written by the time I get to the end!
This is the first in a 52 week blog challenge with the MFRW Romance Writers Group 🙂
