Back At It
I've taken a little bit of time off from writing this summer, the first in almost six years. But now it's time to get back at it. I've spent the past few weeks noodling different story ideas and waiting to hear back on a couple of projects from some publishers.
One particular idea I'm very intrigued by, but it's not in my normal genre. It's close, but rather than historical romance, it's historical mystery with a dash of romance.
It's also going to take a BUNCH of research because the setting is a place that I've never been, and I'm finding resource material scarcer than I'd hoped.
And I want to write! I want to write historical romance! I want to write about the American West and cowtowns and the frontier and everything that makes my heart happy!
So I started a story yesterday. Boy did it feel good! I'm going to put a new word counter up, start back into my lovely #1k1hr group of Facebook, and write.
What are you working on? Have you ever taken a break from writing only to find your heart longing to return to the work you love?
