I have been busy with the new novel which is why I haven’t posted much here.
It’s weird. When I wrote started the YA Fantasy story, I had the idea for female protagonist, the beginning of the story and then ending, and from these I was able to write an outline for the book.
With my new novel, I had nothing. I wrote cold. It seems to be working. I have written 13 chapters so far and I still do not have the “suspense” part of my suspense novel, I don’t know how I will end the book, and I have no outline. Normally, I would feel safer with having some idea, but this time around the writing is going well.
I am now in the process of figuring out the antagonist’s actions and where this will lead, but when I was in bed last night, I got an idea. I just need to iron this out. I will do some research this morning and then I’ll try to get the premise for the novel, so sort of an outline.
This is my first type of suspense/thriller novel. I have read a few of this genre over the years, but I never thought that I would be writing one; however, as I already stated, the writing is going well.
Here’s to a successful outcome.
