Inspiration cometh

So it's been over a week since I finished my untitled manuscript. This is the first project I've struggled in giving it a title. It's a contemporary romance and I have zero clue what to name it. I'm hoping that through the editing/revising process that it will come. *twiddles thumbs* BTW, this is also the first time I've sat down to edit/revise a completed manuscript. OMG, it is brutal work! But a labor of love nonetheless.

While filing at work today I mulled the whole title thing in my head hoping something will come up. Well many somethings came up. First, I came up with a much better beginning to my first chapter. *score* Second, a new character came forth for my The Vampire Novelist series (yes, that's right, it will be a series). *double score* Third, I came up with an AWESOME new product for vampires, but I can't tell you, or I'll have to kill you. *triple score*

Inspiration was popping out of nowhere all day. The only problem most of it was for my other projects not the one I'm currently focused on. So what did I do? I wrote it down and saved it for a later date. If I didn't it would haunt me into utter madness and focusing on my current project would be a futile attempt. Now that it's written, I'm back on track.

Another exciting thing (besides the winter sale at REI) is that I'm officially a member of Romance Writer's of America. *SQUEE* One more step closer toward my dream coming to fruition. *sigh*

How was your day?



  1. Sounds like a productive creative day. Don't worry the title will hit you when you least expect it.

  2. Thank you Paty! I figure it will come to me out of the blue like most things do. :)

  3. I love how inspiration comes from just about anywhere, anytime. Now if only I could write it down when it happens, I'd have it made. It's good you did just that!! *grin*
