I’m having trouble with Glimmer Girls. I’m bored of it. I hope this doesn’t mean I”m bored with writing, because that would be very bad for my writing career! I’m not very good at doing things I’m bored of – hence (isn’t that a good word? Hence.) Hence the plethora of unfinished projects and unused craft supplies stuffed in odd corners of my house.
Some part of this story isn’t working for me, (Glimmer Girls, not the blog) and I have to fix it. Hopefully before I get word from an agent that he or she wants it. (I have a perfectly lovely publisher for my mysteries, but this isn’t and wouldn’t interest her in the least.)
What I need is to look at some stories where the girl (or guy) falls in love with the wrong person. The reader may know it’s wrong but the protag doesn’t. But I can’t think of any. At least I couldn’t think of any until just now – the movie Leap Year just jumped into my head. That’s a good example. See how good you folks are for me. I just write something to you and the answer pops into my head. Fabulous.
But if you know of any more, let me know. Because and assortment of books to read and movies to watch would keep me out of trouble for the next week while my kids are playing with the new wii.
Hope you had a good Christmas Day, regardless of your religious persuasion.
