A Great New Week

by Kay~Kacey on 8/21/2005

okay, I’m so ready for a new week. Things are settling down at work some. (I work in a pediatric dental office. It’s crazy busy in the summer time. But the kids are headed back to school. I think by the day after Labor Day, all the kids in town will be back in school. Most of them started last week, or this week.)

In an amazing feat of creativity I came up with 3, count ‘em THREE, new ideas for stories this weekend. One I had just the vaguest idea of before, realized I had it all wrong and figure it out to the point it made sense and I was excited about it! Does that ever happen to you with an idea you’ve had hanging around in the back of your mind until all of a sudden…BANG…it comes out as a GREAT idea?? Okay, I don’t know all the specifics, but I’m pretty well nailing it down. Man from the past. 20 year old secret. Sigh. Love it.

A high concept idea for my second book. I really liked all the talk about high concept at RWA National. It got me thinking. What is popular now (in the world). What are some universal themes we deal with. How can I query the book with a high concept tag. I love this story too.

The last one is an amnesia story, which I admit I’m a sucker for, ever since reading See Jane Run by Joy Fielding. This one is great and I’m excited about it too.

Now I just have to decide which one to start on first. I do have short write ups…long blurbs if you will for each of them. Which of course brings me back to my Fear of First Page But I’m really psyched about these new ideas, so I’m hoping the fear doesn’t defeat me this time.

I just love it when I start feeling creative after a blah slump! So, it’s back to the writing everyday. Affirmations everyday. I actually bought a cute lavender notebook to write them in. So, no more wallowing. It’s back into life with both feet!
