Now the real work really begins. It’s been a long hard road. 75% of it was completed during NaNoWriMo in November and then I spent December and part of January finishing it. Now that the first draft is done, I can sit back and breathe (for a minute O.o). Sometimes it’s a good thing to take a break and remember why you loved the idea of the story when you started writing it. That’s basically where I’m at now. I’ve spent the last month pondering what I want to change and signed up for the Fictionista writing collective. If you don’t know what that is, and you’re a writer, you’re missing out. It’s an amazing opportunity to get fantastic critique on your original stories, free of charge, and all you have to do is put some time in to critique another author.
Anyway… Here’s the short synopsis of my new story.
Cherie Wagner has come home to Columbus, New Mexico to settle her father’s estate after a horrible riding accident. She had no idea that the high school sweetheart she had left after she graduated would still be interested in rekindling their romance, nor did she anticipate her client, the self-absorbed A-list actor that was running from the papparazi and hell bent on seducing her, to show up on her doorstep.
Dalin Davies, the foreman at Wagner Ranch and an undercover ATF agent, didn’t need the distraction Cherie brought when she pulled up in her little sports car. He was determined to bring Butch Wagner’s murderer to justice and the deceased rancher’s daughter was too much of a distraction. It would take all of his training and patience to keep them both alive while he tried to uncover her father’s murderer.
This story is a long way from being complete, but I’ve been working hard to get something to my readers soon. Stay tuned!
