Music Monday - New Rules

Happy Monday. Man, can you believe it? There are only two weeks left in 2018. I've yet to do the check on my goals to see what I hit and what I didn't, but that time is nearing.

What I do know is I'm sadly behind schedule when it comes to writing. I have a F/F novella I'm supposed to be working on, but I'm too in my head on that one with worry. The stress is real with me wanting to make sure I'm showing proper representation. That added to the stress I'm having with my upcoming releases from my publishers.

So, what does that mean? Well it means I'm not working on anything in particular at the moment. Though one of the FMC (female main character) from another WIP (work in progress) has been giving me bits and whispering that maybe I should work on her story instead. So I have. But not in full chapters, no, that would be too easy.

Instead, Elaine (my FMC) has given me bits, flashes of some random times that may or may not make it into the final product when I actually give her my full attention. There have been two scenes that have been on repeat that I've started jotting down. The first, a talk it out after what could be the 'gray' moment of the novel. The second, another scene with her ex-husband, because apparently he won't go away.

This week's selection is fitting of the second scene. Elaine is done, ready to move on, but there is history there that can't be ignored. But she has to stay strong, set boundaries, and look forward, not backwards. All of this I know, even if I haven't written it yet.

Sometimes it's seems like the easy thing to do to go back to what you know as comfortable. Other times, you need to set new rules.

Have a great week.

Until next time
