That's me trying to think of something to write....
Well, I'm in the last third of the WIP. Would like to say on the downhill slide, but I'm having problems with the ending. I know what I want to happen, just can't figure out how to make it happen. This is the first book that I've had such a problem with making the things happen that need to. I'm not sure if it is because I feel obligated to write it or because my heart isn't completely in it. I do know it is better writing than any of my previous books. I'm getting the craft down- finally!
Oh, I finally figured out the rest of the Petticoat book titles- Miner in Petticoats, the next one with Ethan, then Doctor in Petticoats with Hank, and the last one will be Lawyer in Petticoats with Clay, unless that one comes to life in my head before Hank's story. Ethan's has already taken shape. I know the heroine and how the story will play out.
And I hope in between books to work on the spirit trilogy. I need to write up a sparkling query letter to send to a couple publishing houses that normally only take agented material, but will look at non-agented if the query letter sparks their interest. Hence, the need to write a sparkling query!
For fun- what kind of heroine do you think Hank should come up against. She is going to be a doctor so we know she has determination because that's what it took for a female to be a doctor in the 1800's- but what else would you like to see about her either physical attributes or emotional ones?
