I'm still here

I'm still here... just to let you know that even though I have not posted here for awhile I am still here!

I have been going through a dry spell with my writing and am trying to compose my thoughts as to how to start again and get another book out there. I have more than one story running around in my head but am finding it hard to sit down and concentrate on one. What I need is to find some discipline. Does anyone know where I can find some?

Ha ha! I will sit down soon and start on the one most complete in my head.

I have been doing a lot of reading though. I am totally enthralled with historical romances, especially eighteen hundreds England. I have two stories in those settings running around in my head but have a problem with the language of the time so have been reading to try to form a type of language in my own mind that I could use in writing the books.

What do you think? Does the readership out there need another historical romance? Try a young lady who is being "sold" by her father to a reprehensible old lecher that is rescued by a duke who has liked her since she was a child. He marries her to help her but also to get his mother off his back who has been trying to get him married for several years. The only problem is that his mother has already accepted a betrothal on his behalf and has accepted part of the dowry to pay off her gambling debts. Needless to say the mother is not impressed when her son brings his wife home and mother has the new betrothal waiting to meet him.

Does that sound like something that might interest your literary delights?

Happy spring!
