I have a new idea perking. It keeps me awake at night.
And yet, I feel like I'm stepping out on my other projects. I know they won't actually be jealous. But still - I owe it to Tinsley to get her on the Aquitania on her way to Paris in the 20s. And then there's the YA book that needs to be rewritten as MG - Betsi needs an attitiude adjustment.
Tinsley, Betsi and Eden (the YA witch) looked over my shoulder today as I tried to outline a first few chapters of something new. "Who is this Estella character?" they asked. "She does what?" Betsi demanded.
"June is over," I assured them. "In July, I'll find time for all of you."
"And Estella too?" They sure sounded jealous.
"Well... I'll make time for Estella's outline." After all, I am trying to plot not pants.
"I need a rewrite," says Eden.
"Me too," says Betsi.
"Ha!" Tinsley snorts. "At least she finished you, I've been at a party in Sands Point since May."
Tonight, I'll go to sleep thinking about Estella. Tomorrow, Betsi, Eden and Tinsley take over.
