I started a Christmas anthology yesterday and couldn't get into either of the stories I tried. Then I picked up another anthology I bought a different year and I couldn't get into those stories either. I did find a Cara Colter Harlequin Romance that I'm liking, although I feel like I've already read it. BUT I don't remember how it ends so I'll keep going. LATER: YEP, I READ IT LAST YEAR. IT'S ON MY LIST OF BOOKS READ IN 2009. BUT I STILL DON'T REMEMBER HOW IT ENDS SO THIS WILL BECOME THE 2ND BOOK I'VE EVER READ MORE THAN ONCE.
One of my CPs asked me to evaluate my writing career and my goals. I always do that at this time of the year anyway, and I'd actually started thinking that maybe I'm not writing romantic suspense. Maybe I'm writing novels with strong romantic elements. I also said I'd been toying with the idea of a single title, a story that won't fit in any Harlequin category line. So she challenged me to write a single-title in 2011.
I want to write, but the problem is I have no story in me that's BEGGING to be told. I have a lot of great story ideas, but nowhere to focus my energy. I know all this glumness will pass, but right now it's buried deep into my soul.
