The gerbil in my rodent-wheel brain finally woke up. It's not exactly a fresh idea. It's just so old that I'd forgotten I'd had it. Kind of a mail-order bride story with a twist. Now, I don't like Westerns, usually. I've read a few, but I doubt there are more than 2 on my keeper shelves. And you couldn't pay a publisher these days to take a Western, anyway. So it's not a Western. I don't know exactly what it is. I'm toying with the idea of a time travel, but I'm not sure.
It's more of a germ than an actual story. I've got two characters, a setting, and some intriguing backstory rolling around in my head. And 9 pages written. I have no clue what happens next, so I'm letting it play out in bits and pieces while I do other things.
So that's the new thing. I'm keeping my options open for now, too. I still need to rewrite Daughter of Privilege and turn it into something more than a plotless boinkfest.
Not that there's anything wrong with that. *gg*
Hey, time travel is on my mind, too. Although it'll have to wait its turn in the writing queue.
I thought boinkfests were very popular these days!
Yeah,Jorrie's right... here's to Boink!
It would depend on the publisher. HM&B are still buying Westerns in particular late 19th/early 20th century westerns.
in any case, hooray for the writing.
If anyone could make this idea work, it's you Miss Sela. Sounds awesome. I can't wait to see this one develop.
Add my toast in for boinkfest.
I'm keeping the boinking, just adding a plot around it. You know. Just so it doesn't sound like a letter to Penthouse. ;)
Grow that germ, girl. ;-)
Sounds like a fun project! You can do eet!!!!!
You are growing germs- eek, makes you sound like an agar plate. Maybe you should make him a werewolf cowboy? If the cows don't go the way he wants, he transforms and eats them. :-)
Sounds intriguing! Good luck working out the details!
Hang in there. I'm sure it'll all come together.
Raine -- That just doesn't sound right! *gg*
Amanda -- Thanks! I hope I can find the time now that the kids are getting out of school.
Babe -- Eeew! And you know what's really sad? I actually considered the werewolf cowboy thing when you said it!
April -- Thank you!
Diane -- Thanks, hon. I appreciate it.
