I love all of this, Vicki. You have such a positive attitude. I really appreciate the energy you bring to these challenges.
How cool that you’re trying your hand at a Regency romance! One of my besties writes Regency and I’m always amazed at the detail that goes into her work.
Most definitely. At the beginning of the month I started working on my first ever Regency romance. Even though I’ve read tons of them, it’s so much different than anything I’ve written before and there are so many details of which I’m unsure. Even my voice sounds different, and I don’t know how I feel about it. Then there are all the plot questions: Did I start the story too early? Have I established the attraction between the characters? (I actually know the answer to this one. It’s a no.) But, it’s just a rough draft, and I’m leaving lots of notes for myself for when I have some time to go back and reevaluate the story.
As for the chain event, yesterday I fell off the wagon, but I’m okay with it. I like doing the chain events and I like feeling like I’ve been successful, but I also realize that sometimes there are other things going on that have to come first, and that’s okay. I’m going to try for my 500 words again this evening.
