Okay, I decided that it was high time that I did something to get involved again! I have been thinking about taking another class on writing, there is one that starts on the 28th, but haven't made my mind up.
I have been completely stagnant when it comes to revisions on The Crichton Heir (TCH). The first dozen or so chapters were so horribly written, that I cringe when I think about revising them. I have however been busy plotting book 2.
I have also made the decision to rename one of my minor characters from TCH. I was gonna kill the poor guy off (I know Mel, you can't go killing everybody off....that much I did actually pay attention to!), but now he is screaming to have his own book, so hence the name change.
I needed a strong hero type with a sexier name (i.e. Duncan McCue....God I love that character, can't wait til I start book 3 about him!) The original name was Frederick, but I never really warmed to that name. I can't see myself (or anyone for that matter), screaming "Oh Frederick, take me Frederick!". I can however see, picture, and hear someone screaming "Oh Sloane, take me now Sloane!". Not that I actually have lines quite that cheesy, but I do hope you get the drift here. Sexy man, needs a sexy name! Laird Sloane Sinclair sounds absolutely divine to me....I know if he had a kilt on, along with that name, I could actually overlook a few physical flaws, although we all know in romance, we get to pretend that the men are all perfect and well-endowed, and the women don't have fat thighs or saggy boobage!
Okay, I feel better now, so I will try and update here regularly, not because I expect great masses to read this, but at least I can chart my own progress, as I make it!
