The final stretch....

I'm on the last few scenes of Haunting Desire and the end is so near I can taste it!  I'm a very organic writer--by that I mean my story grows as I go along.  Many writers know exactly what their books are going to be about before they start it.  They plot, they scope, they work out every single detail in advance.  I'm always jealous of those people, but it just doesn't work that way for me.  I've written those detailed and complex outlines and then I start my book and I end up somewhere totally different and my outline becomes an carefully planned out itinerary to a trip I'm not taking..  In short, a waste of time.

So, I do it my way and after 5 books in the can and one very near, I'm beginning to think that maybe my way works.  :)  It's scary setting off on that journey without much more to go on then, "there's a guy, you see.  And he meets a girl...." but apparently that big unknown appeals to my inner writer even if it scares the pants of my outter control freak.  What's a girl to do?

I guess get back to work.

Hey that's great! Congrats on seeing the light st the end of the tunnel!

I was thinking... I would love to interview you for my blog. What do you think? I could email you question and you just email me back the answers. I would put a nice picture of you (maybe this one) a picture of your two current books and as link to your site.
Let me know if you are up to it.

You know I love you!
