During my trip to Texas, I got to meet my editor. This was great for several reasons, not the least of which because I think it improved our working relationship. We hit it off so well that she invited me to work on a project with her and two others for a different line at The Wild Rose Press. The um...hot line :)
As soon as I got home, I started working on the novella and I just finished it last week. It's very different from what I've written before, but I liked it! It was fun. And, nobody died in the story! That's a first for me, lol. I'm going to have to pick a different pen name if it gets published, but so far I have to say I'm enjoying this journey over to the dark side. Maybe more than I should! I've already got plans to start another novella. Hey, whatever fires the muse, right?
So what about you? Have you ever taken a leap outside of your writing comfort zone? How did it go?
