Inspiration comes from the most wonderful places. As I'm struggling with the romance scenes (being a bit shy and private, and wanting to write a book my mother will happily read), I came across a wonderful blog by Pioneer Woman. Ree Drummond tells the best story of how she and her husband met, courted, and married. So far, her blogs take you up to the wedding day. It's funny, it's a little hot, and it's a lot just plain romantic.
It was just what I needed to be reading to get in the mood. God sends inspiration by odd and amazing means.
I'm a wife, an adoptive mom, and a homeschooler. I've been writing for money (and often not) for 30 years. Radio, TV, magazines, publication management. So I'm not new to writing in general, just to novel writing. A whole new challenge.
