Chapters 2 and 3 are now in the hands of the editor. So is my sorry excuse for a synopsis. I’m not very good at them I’ve decided. I hope it was better than my last one – I think it is. I concentrated entirely on the emotional growth of the romance with barely any external stuff going on, so that’s the important thing. It’s going to be quite an emotionally complicated story though I think. The heroine is thinking her problem with the hero will be one thing, but really that’s just a cover for something that’s going on underneath. There will be a deeper issue for her that she refuses to see until it all goes horribly wrong. Hmmm, usually it’s my heroes who get the complicated stuff. Not this time apparently.
Anyway, the one good thing I do know is that the editor liked the conflict. She thought it was realistic, consistent and believable. Big yays for me. Apart from the fact that the emotional barriers are quite large ones. Not so big yays.
Which brings me to the part about the mountain. I’m feeling now I’m at the bottom of it and it’s a very long way to the top. If the ed wants more, I have to write the rest of the story and that’s feeling like a mammoth task. Maybe the pressure’s getting to me, I don’t know. Maybe I just need to start writing and get myself enthused. Maybe I need to refill the well a little.
Whatever it is, I’m going to leave you with a personal favourite video of mine (courtesy of Miss Maisey Yates). Please note that I actually do not want to make love to the mountain (unless it looks a lot like my hero in which case I could be persuaded).
