What's New

I've been writing, writing, and writing some more. I've had lots of new ideas. My last story idea came to me one morning over the holidays. I woke up and there it was. The idea was pretty firm within minutes but it took me a few days to work out some of the details. The more I thought about it, the more excited I became with the story idea. I completed the story last week. Since then, I've been proofreading and adding a few more details, but for the most part, I’m satisfied with the story.

I've also been reading lots and it occurred to me that I have several types of stories that I like that I will buy again and again despite knowing that I will encounter a similar plot. One of those is the idea of friends falling in love. I can't resist a marriage of convenience that becomes more. Or the story of a woman who has an affair with a man and later conceals the resulting pregnancy. (Of course, they get back together when he finds out after a delicious show of male fury.) There are more plots I adore, but still, you'd think it would get dull and that I'd be looking for something different. Somehow it never does and these remain my favorite themes.
