I'm at that wonderful bug-eyed, exhausted-but-happy stage where I've finished writing a book (yippee :-) and have a lovely new idea bouncing around, begging me to write it.
Don't you just love that blank page waiting for the ideas to tumble onto it? I am a confirmed planner and have to say I love the whole spreadsheet/research stage. I also like the feeling that I have to write a story, I only hope it lasts well beyond chapter one.
How do you take this first stage? Any stellar planning tips you can share with us? I've started using Pinterest and love being able to pin pictures of lovely men onto my storyboards and be able to claim it's research! Click here if you'd like to see the storyboard for the book I've just finished.
I've stumbled across William Levy, sadly not literally ;-) I think he makes wonderful hero inspiration, what do you think?
