Subconscious Success

Apparently the subconscious is feeling very creative lately. I came up with a great plot idea for Robert, and with Rene's help( http://alittlecheesewiththatwhine.blogspot.com )I think it's going to be terrific. She is so good at brainstorming.

But I find that this is where my left brain tries to take control of my right. I have a very hard time "letting go" of the historical element and trying to come up with something fresh and original (yes, there it is again! What editors want! And please, where are those editors who are willing to try something new? Stand up and be counted! And give me your email address!).

Now I'm researching the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745, something I became introduced to after reading Patricia Veryan's "Golden Chronicles" series. She is an absolute master of intrigue, action, characterization, and suspsense. It doesn't matter that there are no steamy sex scenes in her novel - the romance is still there and I, for one, have cried after reading some of them.

I'm excited about the direction my novel is taking and if I could just quit yawning for five minutes, I might be able to get a bit of writing done.

I'm planning on heading to a writer's conference in Iowa in June. Very excited about it simply because I need a VACATION. And since my 30th birthday is in June, what better way to celebrate?

    Uh...how about being alone on a beach in Hawaii with Hugh Jackman at your every beck and call, shirtless of course.
