Where I am in the writing process: Unpublished. I started writing in Nov. of 2008. In May of 2009 I finished my first draft of my first ever novel and immediately tried submitting it to agents. (I haven't told you all this before. I'm kind of embarrassed that I tried that soon.) Wow because it was disastrous!!! In no way was I ready to take that next step. So that follow summer I began my current WIP. I'm still working on the first draft. I'm much much more critical of my own work this time around. Maybe that's why it's taking me so long to finish. But hoping to finish this draft by the end of the year. I also have two other WIPs that are both about 10K long.
My current problem(s): Not writing. I have a job interview this coming Monday and that's been occupying my thoughts. I haven't given much thoughts to my characters lately and so when it comes time to write, I just don't. Also, 24--the TV show-- and Netflicks. My husband got us a subscription to Netflicks and now we've been watching the complete seasons of 24. At least when watching regular TV I'll sit there with my laptop open and try to write on the commercials.
My question this week: (This is about the weather. ) Do you try to incorporate weather into your novel? Do you think it's cheesy when authors use a thunderstorm to heighten the drama or the climax?
