I’ve been thinking a lot about what to work on next while Raine and I work on our proposal. I need to get something else to my agent, but I’m totally and completely stumped for a hot book idea. Erotic photography and magical vaginas have been done, it seems, along with a host of other ideas. Nothing feels fresh, or new or interesting (TO ME to write about) and though I have a few other proposals in progress, I don’t feel like working on them.Â Â So it’s something new.Â Or not…I can’t seem to muster any interest in the kinky or the profane.Â And I swore to myself I wouldn’t tackle another Collier brother for quite some time (read a very very long time) but I was playing around with pen and paper and found a great heroine, then I found her a great conflict/backstory and then I tried to put her with a hero I’ve had waiting on the sidelines and it didn’t work. Better to find it out now than 200 pages in though.
Lucky for me, the one thing I learned writing NAILED was to do lots and lots of prep work.Â Anyone know any sharp shooters?
