Okay, so there have been a lot of reasons why I’ve been so indecisive lately, not the least of which is having a husband who has been home sick for the last two months. Still, I need to pick a writing project and stick with it. Or quit. There’s always that option.
I started out the summer working on Courting Kismet, which is a book I wrote in 2002 and was my first serious attempt at fiction. It’s a romantic comedy that was originally aimed at the Harlequin Flipsides line (remember that one?) but it needs a LOT of work. Needs basically re-written from the top down. In other words, lazy old me just didn’t have that much ambition.
The I re-read my 2007 NaNo project Guys and Dogs. This is a finished and almost-polished book. Just needs a quick run-through and a few re-writes, but since it started out as a romantic comedy and got waaaay more serious than I anticipated, I put it away.
So then I started working on Happy Medium. This is a whole new project I started about a year ago. I was very excited about it when I first got the idea, but then I sold Let’s Dish and got sidetracked working on it and Another Time Around. Now I’m having a heckuva time getting back into it, and progress is extremely slow. And the scenes are extremely bad.
So here’s where you come in. Since I obviously can’t make up my mind as to what I want to work on, I need your input. What do you want to read? What should I put my efforts toward? Here’s a very breif descrition of each book:
Courting Kismet– A college drama professor fakes a relationship with the town hottie to get back at her ex-fiance, while she tries to mount a production of Kismet with a unique cast of characters.
Guys and Dogs– A veterinarian is forced to face a huge mistake when her best friend dates her ex-fiance, whom she dumped to marry a successful but shady psychiatrist.
Happy Medium – A psychic medium has been hiding her talents since she was a kid, but when a dead cop demands her attention, she fights her attraction to his partner – a man who could destroy everything her family has worked for.
And now you know why I am the worst at writing blurbs and taglines.
So what do you think? What would you want to read?
