It’s early. All my days start early. It’s just the way I’m wired, I guess.
I am in the beginning stages of writing a new novel. This stage is always hit and miss for me. My mind scrambles to grasp what the book will actually be about. I’m trying to “get inside” my characters. I’m reading research books and trying to assimilate all the new information.
Since readers often ask what it’s like to write a book, I thought I’d try my hand at on-line journal keeping and let you have a peek inside.
So pop back every so often and see how things are going.
Here are a few items of note about “the book”:.
(1) The new novel is Book #4 in the Coming to America series from Zondervan. In this journal, I’ll refer to it as PTM.
(2) PTM is an historical romance set in 1908, featuring German immigrants who settle on a farm in eastern Idaho..
(3) The hero is Jakob. The heroine is Karola..
Today is Saturday. This morning is my bi-weekly woman’s bible study, held here in my home. I’ll probably use the afternoon for more research about wheat harvesting.
