Writing, publishing & marketing notes from Jamie DeBree & her alter egos

Writer’s Notes: July 17, 2014

Writing Session 1: Under His Wing
Author/Genre: JD/contemp. paranormal romance
Words written:  231
Total words:  19,450
Time Spent: 15 minutes

Notes: I’m struggling a bit here, but mostly because I’m over-thinking again. Do I have enough story? Enough plot? What can I add to the plot that will add to the story without padding? Will I just have to settle for another novella, because that’s all the story I’ve got?

Then I remembered – I have another character who’s just sitting there, waiting to be used/abused. And it’ll look weird if she shows up once, and then never again. And if she does this, and then that, and then those things, and has an accident here…she could actually be the heroine for the next book in the series….
Yeah. So we’re cruisin’ along again now. Whew!

Writing Session 2: Under His Wing
Author/Genre: JD/contemp. paranormal romance
Words written:  534
Total words:  19,984
Time Spent: 15 minutes

Notes: And away we go. Twist inserted, subplot started, and the plot is thicker. I’m totally behind this week, so glad to finally have this done…
