WIP Wednesday

December 3, 2008 | Uncategorized

Deciding which story to work on next is always a tussle. There are partials on the hard drive, files stuffed with story ideas, and notebooks crammed with story scraps.

I have a plan, but things happen.

Thinking about December blogs and Christmas, led to digging out a Christmas story I wrote several years ago. A little polishing and I decided to serialize the first chapter on the blog as a Christmas present for Dangerously Sexy readers.

The first step in reading or writing is the hook. Unless I’m intrigued, amused, puzzled–something then there’s no point in continuing.

After a little digging, I found it the old partial. And fell in love.

Now, I need to figure out if this is infatuation or the real thing. Because, although I have a forty thousand word partial, eighty percent of it needs serious work and the other ten percent needs some effort.

So, I published part one of the first chapter here starting Tuesday the second, and then I’m going to let all of you help me decide if the story is worth telling.
