New Project Progress

A great start to a new year methinks!
Don't you love those days when you pick back up on a project you haven't worked on in awhile? These past few days, chapters have just been flying out of my fingertips for my magical realism book. It was a project I had started working on months back, mostly to experiment with a new POV for me, but this past week, I did a major edit on what I had, switching it to first person.
Since Between the Letters is in first person, I thought I wanted to change it up, but I discovered that I really really shouldn't stray from what works. I'm even hopping around to different characters for each chapter, and getting inside their heads has been incredible. The story is going places I had never intended, because I was just'a typin' and the next thing I know she's done this and decided this and holy cannoli....
It's so exciting when that happens, isn't it?
And to top it all off, I came up with a title that I'm very very pleased with. I won't reveal it yet until I'm ready to share from it (perhaps a future Teaser Tuesday?!), but I am so very excited!
Is anyone else having a great start to this new year of writing?

  1. It's really exciting when everything starts coming together like that. My writing is going great so far! I'm really pleased with all the ideas that seem to be popping up all the time. Now, if I could just find a way to convince my husband I need to quit my job, so I can write full time. That would be fabulous!

    Good luck!
