which book?


ok – so for those that know me – skip this paragraph – for those that don’t… I believe that any person can become whatever they want to be – I don’t think about gender.  I do realize that in most cases, men are stronger than women – but other than that – not so much!  Let’s just ignore all the emotional BS talk and just realize that even if SOME women express emotions more, let’s say, freely, than others – doesn’t not mean much – because there are plenty of women who don’t want to ‘talk about it’ all time or know what men are thinking, or blah blah blah… you get it.

So I am trying to figure out which one of my stories to finish writing…  main theme in all 4 books that I am choosing between? They all have very strong females in the lead roles… so here are the choices – obviously in blurb format…

1.  Female assassin (too much thoughts to blurb)

2.  Computer programmer on vacation recovering from trauma, gets surprise visitor – injured man brought home by dog… 🙂

3.  Young woman on beach saves little boy -later gets help in difficult situation – turns out boy’s father was mob boss…

4.  Young woman gets caught up in drug smuggling and arrested in South American country…

I know this is not a lot of info (obviously) – some of these are more developed than others…  any comments? suggestions?  if you read this – please vote!  I am going to finish all of these actually – just need to pick the first one!

Thanks! 🙂

book


I actually am hoping that by writing a blog – sitting here every night or day – 1-2 times a day, whatever and putting stuff down, that I will be able to get myself focused back on writing my books…  I would really like to get one finished… but I need to get the focus back and the juices of creativity flowing!

I have a whole file folder of ideas, characters and stories.  They have been sitting there for years now.  So now I just need to figure out how to focus.

Pick a book and get it done.

Do you schedule a certain time of day to sit down and just write?  I had heard that works. Considering that calling me a scheduled person would be beyond stretching the definition of that word.. and would be an understatement – but you never know – that may be what it takes – doesn’t have to be the same exact time every day – but at least an hour or two of un-interrupted writing time?  hmmmm… could work – going to have to try something!  (sorry for the stream of consciousness flow there!)

I do wish that I could think in Sci-fi!  I LOVE to read it – am fascinated by the things that people come up with – but I just don’t ‘think’ that way – I think more in characters and mystery and espionage, drama type things!!

I surely know that I couldn’t write romance – even though I am a BIG fan of reading them!  I have to say that the dialog and wordplay that Nora Roberts (JD Robb) puts into her ‘in death’ books just makes me smile all the time!  Love those books!  I like to read books like that – easy and fun reads!

I have to be focused and have my brain on full alert to be able to read Dean Koontz! I remember starting the book with the red door (sorry  -I am horrible with titles)  I think he mentioned the door on the first page, I remember closing the book and asking my mom – ok, what’s up with the red door – she just laughed… I read the book – and of course the red door was significant (of course).  I remember writing one of my English papers in college – compare and contrast of Dean Kootz and Stephen King…  love them both –

I always keep up with certain series…  Jonathan Kellerman, JD Robb, Catherine Coulter FBI Series, Cornwell’s Scarpetta series, John Sandford (still waiting on another Kidd novel :))

The romance novels that are pure drivel however are only good to read when you have to completely shut down your brain!  I could never think of writing a novel where the ‘heroine’ has an orgasm when losing her virginity.. COME ON!  (I really don’t want to hear it if anyone reading this had that happen!)  🙂  but other than that – I do like the romance – the love/hate thing… the passion LOVE IT!

So be prepared, one day I might actually finish a book! 🙂
