Morphing Subplots

Have you ever had a story you couldn't set aside for even one day? Are you writing a story that wipes you out emotionally?

I've been working on a manuscript that answers a resounding YES to both questions. What started out as a subplot for a WIP has morphed into a full-blown story begging to be told. It's first love, true love, heartbreak, love nearly lost, and love rediscovered. The emotions run high and the hurts cut deep. The characters expose their feelings on every page. I can't wait to finish the story so they can live happily ever after. Even if this one never gets published, I'll read it and cry for my hero and heroine. They truly belong together.

Put your heart into a book :) I am.

Romance...With a Kick!


  1. Hey Mel,

    Yes! Mine is not the romance as much as it is the backstory to my WIP--I'm totally involved in the mystery of a shipwreck and treasure--my characters have taken a back seat right now to that!

  2. Don't you love being sucked into your story :)

    Shipwreck and treasure? Sounds like some good symbolism to me. So great when that happens without you knowing it. Surprise! What a reward :)
