From the weekend I have partially developed, two new characters, Ava and Mason, plus a brand new Agency, that I have written heaps of notes on. Until that weekend, I never considered that Mitch from my WIP, was part of an Agency, but it fits the story. All of this from two Magic Envelopes. I enjoy story starters, how something as simple as a photo, can get you creative juices zinging. I love the way the creative process just rolls on from a photo, a sentence, an object, a subject.
In my novel, Never Surrender, due for release later in the year, Maggie and Quinn my central characters, came from a dream I had after visiting a very interesting, and completely out of my comfort zone, night club. It started with a single sentence and the whole book built around it. And, even after the rewrites, the sentence still starts the story.
Hell’s frozen over. Meet me tonight. 9. De’lisle’s.
As I commented earlier, GMC (goal, motivation, conflict) does my head in. I stopped writing for a few weeks when it was pointed out to me that there was no conflict. I couldn’t figure out why not? So when it became apparent that I was focusing so much on getting GMC right that It was interfering with the creative process, I thought, I’m not going to call it GMC, So if anyone has any ideas for the renaming of GMC I’d be very interested to hear them. Till next time. May the writing fairy, tap dance on your computer keys.
