Visiting Old Friends…

That’s what it feels like I’m doing right now as I go through and re-write this manuscript.

It feels like I’m coming home to the little town I created a few years ago, the house that’s about to be re-modeled, the secondary cast of characters that still make me laugh…and my hero and heroine.  I still love all of them…but I need to spruce them up a little.  I can see everything that I want to change…both characters have some heavy baggage and they have a history together0-I’m trying to figure out a way to make them not depressing…and yet acknowledge the pain that they still have.

I love this couple together.  It’s strange because they are very different than the couple in the manuscript that I just submitted.  And maybe that’s part of the reason it’s taking me a while to figure them out again.  My last hero and heroine, Jake and Claire were always very vocal, very loud, with either love or hate…These two are more subtle, almost afraid to make their feelings known and I want to make sure that they don’t come across as boring…

Well, I better get to writing before it’s time for DS to get home from school :)

I’ll keep you posted.  Hopefully by tomorrow chapters 1-3 will be ready to go.

    I love the idea of them renovating an old house…And yes, always so much fun to revisit old characters…so hard to let them go sometimes. They feel so real!
