As I’m writing this (Wednesday afternoon), I’m gearing up for a weather adventure. It’s May. In Oklahoma. We managed to get through April without a tornado somewhere in the state. First time ever! So now it’s May and Mother Nature is making up for lost time. Anyway, scrolling back through my notes from the big U and today’s installment caught my eye. This pretty much explains what it’s like to write a romance novel. Seriously. Read it and think about it.
Laughter, new friends, and far away travel. Wildlife, unexplored jungles, and hidden lagoons. Adventure, ancient mysteries, and modern cities. Challenges, heroes, and passionate love.
You deserve it ALL, Silver.
So do I.
Would you mind visualizing for us?

Especially the “wildlife,” Silver. And I don’t mean eco-tours.
Am I right? Are those not all elements that make for a great romance? It’s a check list and in my case, on the current WIP, that “wildlife” IS a double entendre–because sexy Wolves. I’m not making fast progress on Gravedigger’s story but I am making progress. I’m going to make even more “today” — which means Thursday, the day y’all are reading this. So, writers, what’ your checklist when you right? And readers, do you tick off all the thing you love when you read a book?
