Here is a brief description of my WIP: working title "BACK TO YOU"

After nine years in a volatile marriage Jackie Donohue has returned home to her family farm, she is ready to start a new life for herself and her young daughter.

Tyler MacKenzie is back in town also. Once upon a time he believed he and Jackie had a future together until she cheated on him with his best friend . . . or did she?

Ramplings of a Writer 3

I thought I would share with you the process I'm taking in writing my novel.I started just by sitting down and writing, and that worked for awhile, but then I started to be all over the place. So I knew I need a plan. I mean you don't make a dress without a pattern (well most people don't), anyway a plan was needed in this case.

The best way for me to get my head around how I was going to write each chapter was with a storyboard (which is really just a bunch of squares on a page and a chapter or scene outline written into them), and it worked. I now have some structure to my novel, I have four chapters, each with two to four scenes in them, then I have another seven chapters roughly worked out. I'm pretty happy with that, and now that my characters are back chatting again I just know I'll have scenes for the rest of the chapters soon.

I'll tell you about the story next time.

Ramblings of a Writer 2

They're back!!!
Came screaming in last night just as I was going to bed, all perky and ready for some fun. Full of great ideas as to how their story should be told. So I'm back to writing again. YAH!!!!!

Not that I thought the time I have spent the last few weeks a waste. I got my storyboard sorted, a collage done, along with a heap of research. I'll keep you posted on how it's all going.

Just a short blog today. Bye for now.

Day 1 Ramblings of a Writer

Hi and welcome to my first blog. I really not sure what I'm doing or why I'm doing it, but hey, what is life if not for a few adventures.

Well anyway about my writing. I've been writing on and off for a few years now but last year decided to really put more time and effort into it. I'm writing contempory romance at the moment because I love romance stories.

I have two books on the go now, but I've come to a screaming holt with writer's block. Maybe blogging will help me get past it, I can only hope. So with this block firmly in place I have been doing research for my books. I have a paper trail a mile long or should I say a kilometer. Whatever.

You know for months now I've had these character's nattering away in my head and now that I have the time to sit and write again they have all decided to go on holidays. You watch next week when I have my grandson with me they'll all come back wanting to play again.

Well thats it for my first ever blog. The ramblings of a writer.
