I’m inspired!

After viewing a profile photo of a guy holding up the tower of Pisa with his foot, I’m itching to return to my WIP (work in progress), Sunday in the Piazza. Recollections of my spring trip to Italy are flooding back and the urge to infuse those memories into my story are intense. It is exciting to have that fire lit under my butt. LOL

My writing was paused (other than a short story here and there) to sod our yard, have sheetrock repaired after storm damage, paint the entire indoors of my house, and prepare for my son’s wedding. All that is nearly completed (except for a few more rooms to paint) and I’m eager to get back to my daily writing. I’ve missed it.

Although it was painful to step away from my WIP, it was a blessing in disguise. Last month I worried my opening chapter wasn’t powerful enough, so when I opened my manuscript this morning I looked for weaknesses in chapter one, and got back the feel of the story. I was ecstatic when I became completely engrossed. I like the beginning of my book and have returned to my original love for the story. Yay!

I wish I didn’t have to work today. I’m eager to create more of Sunday Phillips’ Italian romance and plan to dive back in—head first—when I get home this evening.

Italy, watch out! I’m about to unleash a powerful romance on your beautiful country. ;)

I KNEW the first chapter was fantastic. I'm glad you had time away from it to see how wonderfully written it is. I cant wait to read more!

This sounds like just my sort of book - looking forward to it!
My own first published book, Belfast Girls, is both romance and thriller, a bit cross genre.
I'm sharing this blog on FB and Twitter, because you've really caught my attention.
