Random Thoughts on a Thursday

Trying to keep up with NaNoWriMo has been a struggle this year. The story I'm working on is not flowing like the one I wrote last year at this time. But I'm meeting the daily goals and a story is getting formed. We'll see what I can do with it in revisions.

I think the big difference between the story idea this time and last time is that last time I knew where the story was headed. I wasn't sure how it was going to get there - but I knew in advance what the ending was, and I was simply working toward that. This year I started with a concept for the story in general- but I have no idea how it's going to end. Even 18,000 words in, I have no idea how it's going to end.

We're all healthy again here - with slight lingering tiredness and coughs - and I wonder if the illness we succumbed to was the dreaded H1N1 Flu? If it was it means I don't have to make a decision regarding vaccines for the kids... but how can I be sure? (I did say these were random thoughts.)

One very bright spot in my week so far was this sweet review at Enchanting YA. My favorite part?
WHEN MIKE KISSED EMMA is one of those romantic tales you want to curl up with and read.

And now it's time to face a Thursday!


  1. Yay for your great review! I love it!

    And you and I are in the same place between last year and this. Maybe that's why we're critique partners :)

  2. I'm so proud of you, Christine! Once a writer-author, always a writer-author! The biggest plus you have is that you are also an editor. What gifts you possess! Many blessings to you. I know you will find a good ending to your story -- no doubt!
