Naturally, now that I'm actually getting somewhere with Book 2, and my characters are beginning to toe the line, I have the best idea ever for a new story. A catchy opening scene, a tormented hero, a lovely healing heroine and a remote desert island. Oh, it's soooo tempting.
So do I give in and open another word doc? No. Partly because I know what I'm like (I have a dozen started stories in a folder called 'Ideas') but mainly because my deadline of June 1 is approaching with alarming speed. Instead I've bought a little notebook and am jotting my new ideas in there. In the meantime Phoebe and Alex are rolling around in the mud in Scotland.
