ODDS AND ENDS
A line you would like to use: "There's something about you."
A scene you would like to include: Love scene in the rain. It's as cliché as it gets. Probably with the Viking. Possibly the Lord.
A concept you would like to explore: Romance.
A cliche you would like to avoid: I think I'd be more likely to swerve to include a cliché than to accidentally leave one out.
A character you would like to use: spiritual advisor (and by spiritual, I mean a ghost).
Do you expect to be able to complete it? Not sure.
Do you intend to complete it? Yes, if I can.
Could you ever try to publish it? Depends how it turns out.
What do you expect to get out of this month of frantic writing? A romance book worthy of the concept: "Do not let your eyes linger on any erotic bus-shelter advertising! Wayne is watching!"
I should put up the Halloween pictures too.
