This familiar Whitney Houston lyric is my way of saying I've started a novel featuring C.J. Stone.
I'd put off a novel up to now claiming I didn't know enough about structure to write one. With the start of June, I decided to learn by doing. It will be a very organic process for me, first fishing for a premise with a free-write, then outlining as I come to know the plot.
I'm going to write as much of the story as I see each day, and if other projects arise from this, I'll work on them in the novel's slow spots. I'll also be reading to add to my subconscious storehouse. I'll blog reviews of what I read, and the usual silliness when I can find it. I won't blog novel updates unless I feel particularly proud of myself. This will be an addition, not a disruption to my day.
What better way to kill time while House, Bones, NCIS, and Smallville are in reruns?
