|Well, I'm working on the new romance manuscript, and this time, I plan to set it up in more detail before I begin. That means a general outline and lots of opportunity for conflict to arise. What I am hoping this will do is create many different sub-plots, on top of the main one, for me to use to really flesh out this story. Since my word counts tend to come up short on first drafts, I'm looking for an avenue to create more words, while still telling a good romantic tale.
In a nutshell, what follows is the general idea of the new work in progress:
When Natalie Russell's secret love affair with her boss, Brett Williams, is exposed after a tragic accident, things go from bad to worse. Natalie must learn how to handle Brett's grief, his unresolved conflicts with his ex-wife and the snide comments emitting form their co-workers. To top things off, Natalie must also deal with Brett's mother, who is hell-bent on keeping the newfound couple apart - at any cost.
