I've started book 1 the my new series, Carver Ranch. The first book is titled Counting Cowboys. It's fun writing the first book in a series, because not only do you get to write a love story, but you begin setting up new characters. Each person you introduce, I get to decided if they'll have a roll in the series.
During this state, I take lots and lots of notes which include, their names, hair color, job, etc. It's what I call my series cheat sheet. You see, I didn't always keep one of these and it caused me to have to go back and open books I'd written to check something as simple as hair color. After almost 3 years published, I'm finally figuring a few things out to make my life a little easier.
So far, the writing flow is going well on Counting Cowboys. Recently I gave up a word count goal, so I'm just writing until the story is done. I hope to have this book done by June. School will be out soon, which means my writing time will be limited. This makes me wish I didn't procrastinate so much during the day when I have all this time to myself.
Happy Monday! I'm off to my cowboy. Maybe he'll wrangle his girl in soon for a kiss....or not.
