The Weekend


Sorry I disappeared for a few days. Work was brutal this week and that could very well have contributed to the massive headache I suffered on Friday. My ears even hurt. In fact, it still hurts, so I'm not sure if it's just a headache or something more. Guess we'll see.


On the agenda for the weekend - editing and more editing. I have to also work on a "detailed" synopsis. Ugh. Funny how different agents are. Some ask for a one to two page synopsis, others want something much more. Well, I've got the two-page synopsis, but not the ten page! So will need to do that next.


Another idea hit me for my Italian-set novel. I had originally wanted it to be a very breezy, fun novel. But then this idea appeared and it's not even close to being breezy and fun, but it would work very well with the story. So I'm not sure what I'll do. It may be that I will write two novels set in Italy - maybe a sort of "duet" of novels. Hmm...can you hear the wheels churning?

  1. Oooh, a duet of novels sounds lovely.

    So sorry about the headache. As a fellow sufferer, I can relate.

    Feel better soon!

  2. Hope your head feels better soon, Melissa. I hate headaches. I was getting them all the time till I bought one of those eronomic pillows. Wha a difference. I almost never get headaches now. Mine were caused by neck tension. Now if I do get a headache I'm surprised.

    I love the idea of a duet of novels. It's so exciting when the ideas start to flow for a new novel. I just love that.

  3. Sorry about the headache. Keep an eye on it, could be a sinus infection.

    With my last book I had an 18 page, a 5 page, a 2 page and a single page synopsis. The all blew chunks. I hope I never have to write another one.

    What? So do a breezy one and a serious one. Your last book was so serious, you should go with the breezy one first.

One Day at a Time

I've always tried to live with this mentality: One day at a time. Unfortunately, when I implement it, I fail spectacularly. But for this...
