Writing Update: Celebrate, Research, Write

winebottle

After a little bit of celebrating, a whole lot of research, and a little bit of psyching myself out, I opened two new word processing documents on Friday and started actually writing on my next two projects.

One is a short story with a twist on the legends about Skinwalkers from Native American myth. It’s set during the last few days before the U.S. landing at Iwo Jima. The marines really want to get someone onto Iwo Jima to do recon, but they can’t send just anyone.

The other one I started is the second book in my paranormal line – Firebound. I’ve scribbled bits and pieces in my notebook, worked on characters, and outlined, but it felt really good to open up the document and just start writing. Right now, my main character wants to become a nun. We’ll see how that works out.

My only goal at this point is to open both documents every day and add to them. There’s some outline in my head and I’ll do more of that as time permits. I’m a little bit plotter and a little bit pantser, I guess.
