Got past the stuck places and events are now unfolding at a furious pace. Almost at the turning-point scene that's been in my head for a while, but with a few revisions to the original form. Still waiting to see how the whole thing comes out.
I've also found my thoughts drifting to future projects. There are many of them:
- Finish third book in Jack Watson series. I stopped before because (1) the timing of it was off, (2) I wasn't sure where to go with it next, and (3) the inspiration for "Mongan Manor" was tempting me.
- Revisit manuscript of my first and second completed-but-not-published novels, both science fiction. Oh, do they ever need work . . .
- Another paranormal idea that's been shuffling around in my brain. This one would be really different--a male victim who gets involved in an investigation with a female cop and a paranormal investigator (also female) in an uneasy alliance against a new sort of creature. Still very much in the formative stages.
- Return to an unfinished manuscript from a few years ago, a medical thriller.
But I'm trying to stay focused here and do one thing at a time. Maybe if I could clone myself...
