New Baby To Play With

Friday, May 12, 2006
No, not literally. Ye gods. I couldn't deal with more than the two I've got and in any case, I'm sans girly bits anymore. Thank heavens. My life is much easier now.

Anyway...

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. ;)

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.
