Still In Love With Her: Maggie & Vince, Book ONE Update – 7/14/2014

I’ve decided to post updates as I make them. So as you know I started writing Still In Love With Her: Maggie & Vince Book ONE. I planned to reach 10k words by the end of the weekend. However, I was 6k words in when I suddenly realized the story as I first conceived it wasn’t exceptional enough. I put Robert Tango in the story, and I forgot how “wicked sexy” he is…. He still wants Maggie. And he’s a scoundrel and they’ll do just about anything to get what they want… So the story began to take a whole different form. The conflict changed. The stakes were higher. So… I had to make a tough decision.

As of today, I’m back at page one. However, I know exactly what’s happening and where this story needs to go. Sometimes you have to write until you get it right! 🙂

OMG… I am going to have SMOKE, FIRE and VAPOR gushing out of my ears by edit submission time. What did I get myself into????

      Hi Rosemary!!! The good thing is I know that I’ve found the right story when I don’t have to struggle to build the “beats.” The beats are building blocks made of action and reaction, which lead to major plot point. The beats are now moving along rather smoothly 🙂 All best! Z
