The journey of writing and other thoughts
5/16/2005 11:50:48 AM    [ Flag as Spam or Inappropriate ]

My rejuvination in writing my novel has made things quite exciting. I will be taking a break from my regular work and writing next weekend to recuperate, then turn the engines on again. I have an itch that I must scratch but I don't want to burn out doing it either.

The most satisfying part of my writing is when I finish the last line of the book. I'm looking forward to my last line on The Balkan Secret Conspiracy. I will drink some champagne when that last word is written--no matter how cheap the bottle.

I'm sticking my guns on this name. I've had some people think it wasn't a "good" title. Well, I believe it is. It alludes to what the book is about and still leaves you wanting more. One thing I've learned is that readers want to figure a book out by reading it--they don't want to be given all of the information; especially by the title name. Too boring. Being an avid, crazy reader myself, I would rather be baited and pulled in rather than be able to read into the plot by the title itself.

I have the unfortunate ability to be able to predict almost anything within movies--more so than most. So my books tend to be a bit more complex--I don't want you to be able to figure out what I'm thinking. It's not worth the read then, is it? Don't you want suspense? Don't you want unpredictability? I sure do.

I predicted 100% of what was going to happen in the movie, "National Treasure"; much to the annoyance of my husband. If I can get you to not be able to predict about 40% or less of my novel, I'm doing good. My aim is to, by the time I'm "seasoned", make you totally unable to predict what I'm thinking.

On to my travels.

Till next time.
