Day One – Organization
I have been brainstorming and researching this new storyline for a few months now. So it isn’t completely new to me. But before I launch into writing mode on a new project, I always feel compelled to organize first.
I’ve pulled out an old 3-ring binder discarded my one of my kids at the end of last school year. I’ve repurposed a few dividers and marked the tabs appropriately. And I’ve printed out all of my current research and brainstorming notes.
But there is one more thing that I must have before I start writing. I NEED my visual inspiration – imagery to remind me of a theme within the story. I need a working cover for my book/series that I can print and slip into the cover of my new (repurposed) binder.
Voila! The unveiling…
No, this won’t be the official cover. It’s just for my work-in-progress binder.
Unlike my other series, this one is not a romance. No need for a smoky-eyed, bare-chested, tattooed warrior hero on the cover. Sure, that would be an “inspiration”. 😉
But the themes in this series just might be provocative enough on their own.
