Okay, guys. I hate to admit it, but I am slacking. Usually, I am completely prepared for this. I plan character, outline, make a cover, play around on the website. Everything. This year, I have a vague plan, less than a notebook page. I just have been so tired and lazy. I haven’t wanted to do anything. But it’s time I got my butt in gear. So here is my #NaNoWriMo to-do list.

- My best friend was here.
- We ate Mexican takeout and watched Lord of the Rings.
- The first day back at work after a long weekend is BRUTAL.
- I had a headache.
- I got a six-paragraph long rejection letter.
I’m sorry for this cop-out. I will be back with your regularly scheduled blogging next week. In the meantime, how was your weekend?
Isabelle only wanted to take care of her father. Unfortunately, taking care of her father means following him out into what the weather reporters were calling ‘The Storm of the Century.’ When Isabelle’s car slides off the road and wedges itself into a snow bank, she has no choice but to seek help from the illusive Fitzroy mansion, tucked away in the woods on the edge of town. Inside, she encounters Leo, a solemn man with a dark past and a scarred face, who begrudgingly lets her stay after the roads close. She grows increasingly frustrated by his secrets, including the forbidden door that she is not allowed to look behind. At least he has his own personal library for her to browse.
Leo Fitzroy was once the popular son of one of Grimford’s wealthiest men. But after tragedy struck, he locked his broken body away in his mansion, staying away from the outside world that pitied him. He was used to his solitude, and he does not appreciate Isabelle’s special brand of annoyance. He wants nothing more to get her out of the house as soon as the roads are cleared. But when he learns that she likes books and 80s cult classics, he begins to realize that maybe she’s not so bad. Except the longer that she is in his house, the closer she gets to his secret. If she finds out, it will ruin everything.
A modern retelling of “Beauty and the Beast.”

Yesterday, I was writing an intense “will-they-or-won’t-they” breakup scene, and I found myself listening to a lot of Broadway showtunes while I did. There’s something that comes from a heartfelt ballad and a belting voice that you can’t get anywhere else. So here is what it inspired. The best Broadway breakup songs to write to.
