You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.
I'm venturing into the world of author blogs. This blog will be where I discuss balancing writing with a full-time job. I'll also write about my progress. I am currently unpublished.
My current work in progress (WIP) is a futuristic romance. There's a mystery element to it, but romance is the focus. I am participating in National Novel Writing Month, and I'm on track to meet the 50,000 word goal. Participating in NaNoWriMo has been wonderful, because it has forced me to go home and write for a few hours each day after work. I won't be able to keep up that pace after November, because right now I only have time for work, commuting home, and writing. Everything else has been completely ignored.
Right now, I'm simply following my outline. I will fill in with more details and description once I'm done. Writing the mystery part of the plot has been challenging. I know it needs a lot of work. The characters are too passive, not putting the clues together themselves. I'm not sure how well I've written the clues, so that's something else I will focus on later.
In the meantime, I have another 1,667 words to write each day.
