Do you like the change?
I decided to go with a cleaner look that was easier to read and a tad more professional as I delve more deeply into making this a marketable place for my own writing and reputation as a writer.
Not to mention, I’m obsessed with autumn, and the header pic is more me than anything I’ve used before…
I keep saying it’s time for me to make the great plunge into writing as a full-time gig, and I’ve made many baby steps to get to this point. Consider this another step in that direction. . . .
I wanted to finish my healing piece tonight/this early morn (it’s 1:57 a.m. and I am still up with this nasty cold), but it’s on my laptop, and my laptop’s at school, and school’s 33 miles away, and that’s just too far to drive this early in the morning.
Speaking of colds…I was supposed to leave tomorrow to head to my sister’s place in Florida to be with her before she goes into the hospital for another round of chemo. I am devastated that I can’t be with her b/c of this cold, but if she gets sick b/c of me, then she doesn’t get the treatment, and then she misses her surgery to have the tumor removed.
It absolutely stinks. 😦
One more thing before I attempt to return to bed: I was doing some freewriting in my daybook this evening, pushing myself to write even when I thought I had nothing else to say, when suddenly, this great line came out of nowhere:
Stop writing from your illnesses and begin writing from your passions.
So simple, so true.
In the writing heals piece that I am doing, it is still, STILL about my illnesses and not about my passions. I’m going to preserve that draft, but I may do a discovery draft writing from my passions instead….If it doesn’t work, then I’ve done nothing but write more for a good 30 minutes or so–writing that I may use at another time. If it does work, then I think I may be on to something here.
I think that I want to write a romantic thriller….I’m not even sure what that genre includes. Would it be Frankenstein? Dracula? Wuthering Heights? And of Anne Rice’s books?
How would you define the genre of romantic thrillers?
