Juggling books


     We need several rainy days in a row.  I have to settle my butt in the house instead of working on getting the house and gardens ready for fall.  I have books screaming at me to write them.  I’ve only been able to put in a few hours at a time on them.  Yes, I did say them three times.  I am juggling five now. 

     (Cue circus music.)  Step right up and watch the juggling act.  Look at how she keeps five books in the air at once. 

     It’s a good thing I learned a long time ago to keep character lists, time lines, and plot points available for each book.  It would get very confusing without them.

     I also learned about keeping storyboards at a conference session done by one of my favorite writers and friend Valarie Malmont.  The use of different shaped and colored Post It® notes for plot points, turning points, and other important things makes for a wildly colorful board.  I believe I’ve singularly kept the Post It® note company in business.  I use tons of them.  DH will sometimes present me with new ones when he sees some that are a bit different.
