Well, I only wrote two days this week (my goal is five days), but that’s better than not writing at all. Which is what I had been doing…or NOT doing. Tues-999, Sat-774.
I’m not sure I like the setting in my WIP, so I might change it. This is supposed to be a fairly spooky ghost story. Right now, I have it set in a little town on the beach in the pan handle of Florida. I love that beach, but it’s really not eerie enough. I feel like there should be waves crashing against the rocks, like in Maine or somewhere. Somewhere gloomier. I was trying to do something a little different, but I don’t know if it’s going to work.
What do you all think? Can there be a spooky story on the beaches of Florida. Or is it just too sunny and laid back for that?

I have a serious dilemma. Or should I say a series dilemma? Here’s the deal. I just finished the last chapter of Soul of a Vampire. But I think this book might have the potential of being the first in the series. I THINK. If it’s going to be a stand alone, I need to stop it where it is. But if it’s going to be a series, there’s an epilogue I need to write to hint at whose story might come next. I don’t know what to do. Many of you know my story of series writing. I wrote Guardian Vampire and a lot of readers wanted a sequel. But there was no sequel in my brain for it. So I wrote the Vampires’ Curse (Libby Fox) trilogy to please readers who liked series. It just doesn’t sell well. If it weren’t for Guardian Vampire and Haunted Lake, my sales would be TERRIBLE. Those two have always been my best sellers. And they’re stand alones. And they’re getting some age on them, so the momentum is slowing down. The only reason I hesitate to write a sequel to SoaV is because I was going to work on the book my husband thought of next. But I could put it off and write the sequel, then come back to the other one. However, I don’t want to disappoint my husband by putting off “his” book. Oh, what to do!
On the eating situation I was talking about earlier, I found that I can eat fish without the gag reflex taking over. I actually had for supper…sushi (not the raw kind), a few olives, and cheese & crackers. So I won’t have to revert to popcorn for supper again. LOL
