My project Cloak is practically writing itself! I’m so pleased. In plotting it, recent events mesh perfectly with the existing plot and I can see where it all will go. This also meshes with dreams I’ve had of speaking to members of the Trump administration on the phone, which was the initial inspiration for Cloak. If I’m right, the next couple of weeks will be very interesting.
I have a work project that will take up a lot of my time this week, but I hope to get back to writing as soon as I can.
Have a great day!
I’m happy to report that I spent the day with my character Madison Knight and all sorts of notes about all the chaos and scandals coming out of the White House since the inauguration of the current president. I’ve come up with what I think is a great outline for what has happened, and what will happen, in the timeline of events I’ve created for Cloak. Because I don’t want to ruin suspension of disbelief, I am planning to work on Cloak while I wait for additional events leading up to the 2018 midterms to unfold- and some of the things I’ve thought of are pretty fun indeed! I think you will enjoy riding along with Madison.
Because there will necessarily be some waiting until mid-November, I’m also going to plot out an additional project which I’m calling Wings. This book is a lot more lighthearted than most of what I’ve written to date, and while Cloak will be enjoyable, Wings will be as or more fun, I suspect. I don’t want to give away too much, but Wings deals a lot with different kinds of angels.
Hello, readers! After some mulling over (I had time, as I was working on other projects, then ill for a while), I’ve decided I probably can’t sell my manuscript-in-progress Diamond as easily as I can some of my other novel ideas. So while I fully intend to finish it, I probably won’t focus on it right now.
The project I’ve picked to focus on is one involving an unusual spy and a corrupt White House administration. I fully admit that events since mid 2016 have led to the novel concept for Cloak. My next step is to draw up an outline (this is going to be helped by my extensive notes and screenshots of relevant news articles, but I admit, I could use some assistance with this, as there are probably a lot of funny details I have forgotten), and then go visit New York City, as this is where the majority of events happen. I might also need to go and visit Washington, DC again. I’ve registered my concept for Cloak with WGA West, so I feel confident that I can share as much as I have with you.
I’m excited about Cloak– the main character and her love interest are both truly fascinating to me, and I’ve even thought of a sequel which involves a third, truly lovable character. I hope that people are not so overwhelmed with Trump and his activities that they can’t enjoy a little bit of fiction involving someone like him.
Have a wonderful day.
