I keep hearing the song Rumour Has It by Adele and I watched Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace last night and I want to write a James Bond-Mystery thriller romance kind of thing again. So I'm thinking of putting REBEL aside for the moment and letting it sit before I go back and start it over whole scale again with the story now that I've figured out the plot. 

Something about Craig's Bond that gets my bad ass freak flag flying for the guy and the girl. This story is going to be gritty, noirish and set in the future. Maybe mystery maybe suspense.

I should always set out to tell the story and worry about agents and publishers later. I tend to writer long novellas  or short stories these days. Do I have what it takes to write a full length novel?

I often set a goal for myself when writing the story. But my best results come when I'm just having fun. I just hear Adele singing and can see a girl riding her motorbike like a bat of hell. Trying to figure out what the story should be. But first I need a bad ass hero who can take on a bad ass heroine.

She wears jeans her hair is the color of blue koolaid and she has the memory of an elephant. Her eyes are green and she knows how to get the job done.  Or maybe not.

He's a retired CIA agent working as an investigative journalist. Maybe. Maybe not. I want an adventure the reads like a film watches. To ambitious full of myself. That's a good possibility. But nothing feels as good as a new story grabbing you and taking you away for a great ride.

All best with your new project. I was going to watch Casino Royale last night. Still might borrow the DH's DVD this weekend.
