And that makes four

I just put the draft of Love Your Frenemies to bed. It’s the one about Kimmy (from My Imaginary Ex) and the act of finalizing it gave me a bit of deja vu.

Eleven months ago, LYF was a complete draft ready for review — until I asked my editor not to work on it. It’s been a difficult story from the start (because Kimmy is hateful and I needed to keep her that way) but even when I finished it, something about the plot bothered me. I also gave myself the extra challenge of making certain things fit with the earlier story (like puzzle pieces).
A few months ago I found a way to make it work. Whether or not it works for other people is entirely up to them, but I tend to want to satisfy myself first. And now I’m satisfied. 🙂
So now that I’m done with LYF, I have no more “projects” in development. That makes four novellas completed in two years.
Going to take a break as I work on getting these published. In the meantime I’m on listening mode, because friends are telling me all sorts of story ideas. (It happens when they know you write romance. Drama!) I’m also considering a genre shift. (Zombie werewolf robots!?)
