We all make New Year's resolutions. Well, a lot of us do, anyway. One of mine was to write four novels by June. Why June? Just because here on the farm life gets pretty involved when the warm weather arrives. Gardening, hiking, rowing and lots of other outdoor things keep me from my desk so getting most of my year's writing done early will make the warm months more pleasurable. At least that's the plan!
One of 2009's novels is going to be a ghost story. I'm mulling over two ideas, trying to decide which one to use. One is a contemporary story. The other is set during the Civil War. Both have strong heroines, hunky heroes and a dead body or two in unexpected places. Oh, and each has a ghost who wreaks havoc at nearly every turn.
So...what do you think? Contemporary? Or historical? Any advice is greatly appreciated!
And what about you? Have you made any resolutions for the New Year?
