I have a release date for The Greatest Gift! It comes out December 17. I can't wait to see what they come up with for the cover.
I'm working on a new story now. With each one, I learn more about writing. I think the more you do it, the more you learn. That's the way it should be. Luckily there are good moments to offset the ones that are a struggle. The latest lesson is the importance of outlining. I do little outlining with shorter stories, so I wasn't working with one for my latest story. Then the story expanded, and I'm trying to put it all together. My next step: a new outline to get the story back on track.
In other news, I entered the Brava Novella Contest, so I will be waiting to hear the results along with more than 300 other entrants.
Should be fun.
I'm also preparing for National Novel Writing Month--I can't believe it's coming so soon! Looks like I have a lot of outlining to do this month.
