Plan Your Novel: 30-Day Writing Challenge October 2018 Workshop
Dates: October 1-31, 2018
Register here: https://school.bethbarany.com/p/plan-your-novel-30-day-challenge-oct-2018/


My colleague and writing teacher Beth Barany only teaches it once or twice a year, depending on how much time she can afford to take from her other work.

In this class, she helps you come up with a story idea from scratch and plan a novel around it in four weeks.

You'll get live guidance as you brainstorm, and feedback on each element of your story as you create it.


(At a fraction of the price you'd pay to hire a writing coach to do the same thing.)

Beth is brilliant at helping you pantsers figure out the few things that will help you feel your way through a story without stifling your creativity.

And
for you plotters, she's got a a solid framework that she walks you through step-by-step, so you don't miss any of the essentials as you construct your story's outline.

The course includes video lessons, worksheets, weekly group phone calls where you can ask questions...and of course, direct access to Beth every step of the way.

If you have no trouble whipping out a solid novel outline in a few days, you don't need this course.

But if you're new to writing...


If you've been pantsing and getting stuck in the middle of your story...

If you've studied story structure but struggle to apply it to the story you want to write...


Beth's experienced coaching and focused exercises cut through the confusion and overwhelm, so you can focus on the parts of writing you love.

Your characters. Your ideas. Your world.

You can get more info (and reserve your seat) here:

Laura Haley-McNeil and her Latest "Imagine the Kiss"


A native of California, Laura Haley-McNeil spent her youth studying ballet and piano, though her favorite pastime was curling up with a good book. Without a clue as to how to write a book, she knew one day she would.
After college, she segued into the corporate world, but she never forgot her love for the arts and served on the board of two community orchestras. Finally realizing that the book she’d dreamt of writing wouldn’t write itself, she planted herself in front of her computer. She now immerses herself in the lives and loves of her characters in her romantic suspense and her contemporary romance novels. Many years later, she lived her own romantic novel when she married her piano teacher, the love of her life.
Though she and husband have left warm California for cooler Colorado, they enjoy the outdoor life of hiking, bicycling, horseback riding and snow skiing. They satisfy their love of music by attending concerts and hanging out with their musician friends, but Laura still catches a few free moments when she can sneak off and read.

Beverley: What’s your name?
Phineas: Phineas Bonham St. Cyr
Beverley: Where did you grow up?
Phineas: Manhattan mostly. My life was privileged. All the right schools. Associated with all the right people. I thought I knew how to read people and surround myself with those who were like me. I was wrong.
Beverley: During what time period does your story take place?
Phineas: This is a contemporary story.
Beverley: What’s your story/back story? Why would someone come up with a story about you?
Phineas: Once my life was the envy of everyone who knew me. I had worked hard to be the best in my field. It didn’t hurt that women were drawn to me. I knew how to say the right thing all with the purpose of getting what I wanted. What good fortune I attracted passed onto others. Everyone wanted to be around me, be my friend, work for my company. I had the golden touch.
And then like the lightning bolt that blasted through a canyon, everything I had worked for vanished.
Beverley: What’s your goal in this story?
Phineas: To survive. And to survive alone. I had finally figured out how to do that. I had built my home in an isolated area on the Crystal Creek Ranch. I could walk again. I had learned how to be alone. I would no longer be known for the great celebrations I created. That I could climb out of bed, dress myself and step out of my house was my greatest accomplishment. It had taken years to achieve that level of competency. I kept looking forward. Maybe, just maybe, I could accomplish more.
Beverley: What conflicts are you facing?
Phineas: I had thought I had compensated for everything in my former life. Until the day when I hiked through the woods and I heard the most beautiful sound. The sweet strain of a violin. I had to know who created that sound. Teagan Whitloch Munroe was a woman as beautiful as the music she created. If I could only stand in the shadows and bask in the beauty that soothes my aching soul, but she’s a woman that knows sound and she knows someone is nearby listening.
Beverley: Do you have a plan for resolving them?
Phineas: I’ve been alone for years. I’ve learned to exist without human contact, but Teagan creates something too beautiful to resist. Teagan is beautiful inside and out. Sharing her music with others gives her joy. Because I am a monster, I have no fear that she will ever want to return the feelings I have for her.
Beverley: Is there anything else you’d like us to know about you?
Phineas: The past never stays hidden. Someone tried to destroy me once, but failed. My life no longer has meaning. I can fight for my life but to what avail? It’s when the web starts to close around Teagan that I can no longer let the secrets of the past lay dormant. This time it’s a battle that must be won.

Blurb for Imagine the Kiss
      Two people open themselves to the truth and open themselves to each other.
Her marriage in ruins, violinist Teagan Whitloch Munroe escapes into her music and the solace she finds at the Crystal Creek Ranch. Practicing in the woods helps her piece together her life, but she isn’t alone. When she hears someone hiking nearby, she demands he reveal himself, but the only revelation she gets is a soothing voice that heals the pain in her heart.
Maimed by a crushing accident, the once famous architect Phineas St. Cyr protects the world from his disfigurement by sequestering himself in the woods on the Crystal Creek Ranch. When he hears the intoxicating strains from Teagan’s violin, he can’t resist the beauty that quiets his aching soul, and he yearns to know the woman who creates such beauty.
Teagan finds sanctuary in her friendship with this connoisseur of music, but soon realizes Phin’s hiding more than his hideous scars. As they become entangled with each other, Teagan is stunned to learn they share more than a love of music. They are caught in a web of deceit by someone threatening to reveal Phin’s secrets. His exposed past endangers Teagan, and he can no longer walk away. This time he must face the enemy determined to defeat him. He’ll fight to the finish to protect the woman he can never love. No price is too high to keep buried the secret that will mark Teagan for destruction.
Excerpt from Imagine the Kiss
Chapter One
Teagan Whitloch Munroe was trembling. She was trembling, and she couldn’t stop. She’d been trembling for more than two hours—since she’d left the downtown Denver condominium she shared with her husband, Dr. Wilbert Munroe. What she’d seen inside the condo—in their bedroom—made her want to vomit. A cold knot of disgust and revulsion gripped her stomach.
When she’d walked into the master bedroom, she must’ve gasped. Will was lying on the bed, but he wasn’t alone. He’d lifted his head from the pillow. He looked right at her.
And swore.
He didn’t look surprised. He looked annoyed.
She’d pressed a hand over her mouth.
Blinded by tears, she’d backed into the doorjamb and stumbled into the hallway. She didn’t remember running out of the condo, but she must have. Her legs throbbed, and her chest ached. The only thing she remembered was her husband calling her name. What had he said? Let’s talk? She didn’t know if she should laugh or sob.
And she remembered the dulcet laughter of the naked woman who was servicing him in bed. Teagan’s and Will’s bed. Teagan had thought Ginny Andrews was her friend.
Some friend. Ginny who was svelte and toned. A contrast to Teagan who’d struggled with her weight since she was seven years old.
A shuddering breath rocked through Teagan’s lungs. Tears streamed down her cheeks. She wiped them away.
She barely remembered driving to the Crystal Creek Ranch, throwing a saddle on her favorite horse, Champagne, and racing through the meadows until she reached the aspen forest covering Crystal Peak.
Fighting against the despair that filled her, she wrapped shaky fingers around the reins and urged the Arabian horse through the trees bursting with spring green leaves. Her vision blurred, and she tried to focus on the pink wild roses and purple elephant’s head mingling with the green undergrowth. The splashes of Crystal Creek tumbling over rocks sounded next to the trail. It was happy and musical and far from the darkness that crowded her heart. Her stomach roiled and begged to be emptied of the half sandwich she’d eaten during the orchestral rehearsal that afternoon.
    She ran her hand over the horse’s neck damp from perspiration.
“How’re you doing, Champagne?” Her voice was husky, and she asked the question again.
The mare snorted. She shook her head. Her mane danced through the air before falling in soft waves about her neck.
“Did I run you too long?” She softened her tone. “I'm sorry. I had to get away. You’re lucky you’re a horse. You don’t have to worry about anyone breaking your heart.” Her voice cracked on the last word.
Her insides were shattered. She’d never heal, not after what she’d seen.
Fresh tears filled her eyes. The trees around her blurred. The sunshine pouring over her was warm but couldn’t melt the cold penetrating her chest.
She had thought coming to Crystal Creek would bring her peace.
She’d never find peace. Not when the image of Will pleasured by Ginny burned in her brain.
    A branch cracked.
Her nerves jumped.
Fear sprang into her chest.
She looked around but saw no one. Had Will followed her? Was this his plan—talk to her in the middle of the forest? But how would he know she’d driven to Crystal Creek?
He’d know. She always went to the ranch when she needed to think things through or needed to escape the rat race of the city.
Champagne’s ears twisted, but the horse didn’t jerk. Instead, she tilted her head and stared through the trees as if she’d expected the sound.
Teagan turned in the saddle. “Will?”
Silence.
“Hello?” she called out.
A breeze rustled through the branches. They swayed then stilled.
She peered through the boughs.
“Who are you? Tell me your name. I heard you. I know you’re here. Show yourself.” Her voice sounded thin and strained. She turned Champagne around.
The horse stepped like a ballerina over the flooring of pine needles and aspen leaves.
“Answer me,” she demanded.
“It wasn’t my intention to frighten you.” The voice was deep and rich and sent soothing warmth down her spine.
“I’m not frightened.” A swallow clicked in her throat. “I want to know who you are, and what you’re doing on my stepmother’s ranch. You’re trespassing, you know. Step into the clearing. I want to see you.”
Champagne stepped sideways, and Teagan listed in the saddle. She caught her breath and straightened. She patted the horse’s neck.
“It’s okay, girl.” She looked around. She needed to calm down. The horse was sensing her anxiety.
No one. No one appeared. No one spoke. The warmth she’d felt earlier slid away. Coldness wrapped around her.
“Hello? Are you still there?”
She didn’t know how she knew, but she knew this intruder had left. She urged Champagne forward. The horse pushed her nose against Teagan’s boot then took a reluctant step. Teagan peered through the trees. No human form appeared.
The intruder had left. She felt his absence the way she’d felt his presence. His presence was summer sun, his absence winter ice. He’d been near her and now he was gone, but she hadn’t heard him walk away.
As a violinist, she was tuned to sound. His voice had been pleasurable, a melting softness against her heart. It had been as pleasurable as the sounds coming from her violin. She wanted to hear him speak again. She wanted to capture his voice. She wanted to see his face.
She guided Champagne to the main trail that led back to the ranch house. She’d learn the identity of the forest wanderer. He must be familiar with the area. He’d slipped away too quickly not to know his way.
Occasionally, trespassers wandered onto the ranch, a massive acreage filled with meadows and brooks and rich green forests. The ranch was paradise, which was why she was riding her horse through woods colored with the first hint of spring. She’d find out about this trespasser.
Was he a trespasser? She dragged in a breath of the freshly-scented forest. Her heart thundered. This man knew the area. He’d disappeared without her seeing him.
An unnerving thought stirred in her mind. This wasn’t his first hike through the Crystal Creek woods. He knew the area well enough to avoid a face to face encounter with her. He didn’t want her to see him.
Why?
She had to know. She had to know what this man with the gentle but powerful voice had to hide.

Has Writing Changed?

In previous posts I’ve addressed some of the external changes to writing – the kindle and e-publishing, the increase on e-publishing sites and publishers and the amalgamation of regular publishers and more cross genres.  Lots of changes for authors and readers.

Today I want to talk about actual changes to the writing process. I don’t think the process and the “rules” have changed that much. Character development, plotting, goal, motivation and conflict, scene and structure, tight writing, show don’t tell, and a balance of narrative and dialogue are all important to well written book.
I’m not going to go into detail on each of the above, but I am going to share a reference for each one.  Character development – if you don’t develop characters your readers like or love they won’t read your book.  What conflict is there between the hero and heroine? Check out ‘The Complete Writer’s Guide to Heroes and Heroines’, (Sixteen Master Archetypes by Tami Cowden, Carol LaFever and Sue Viders.
You need to figure out your plot and then what do the hero and heroine want? Why can’t they get it? What fight do they have to have to reach that goal? Scene and structure by Jack M. Bickham can help you set up the structure of your book so it flows smoothly.  You might also read Goal, Motivation and conflict by Debra Dixon.


A lot of the other basic “rules” can be found in ‘Writing a Romance Novel for Dummies’  by Leslie Wainger and/or Stephen King’s On Writing.
If you have any books you recommend or keep beside your computer I’d love to hear about them. Please share with us. Or if you have any writing tips, also please share.

How Much Daily Protein


Okay this is totally not about writing, but I came across this article. It makes sense to me and I’m going to try and meet the recommendations.
I thought I’d share it, especially for those of you over 50 years old, or maybe those who are younger who might be interested in it for their older relatives. The article is in the AARP August/September magazine, “What to Eat When You’re 70+” by Clint Carter. It says we’re not getting enough protein.

The last US government puts out a pamphlet called “Dietary Guidelines for Americans”.  The last one they released was in 2015. It’s 122 pages of specific nutrition information for men and women up to the age of 50. Then they lump everyone over 50 into one group. So the guidelines are the same for a 50 year old or an 80 year old.  They recommend 46 grams of protein a day for women and 56 grams a day for men.
Aging bodies lose muscle faster and digest protein different. After 40 you lose 1 percent of muscle mass per year.  A 10 week study of 70 year old men doubled their intake of the recommended amount of protein. Those who took only the recommended amount lost muscle mass. Those who took double the amount added muscle around their core and increased their length strength. So they’re recommending 100 grams of protein a day.  (He didn’t list the study) It sounds like a lot, but aim for 20-30 grams per meal. I’m working on it right now.

To get the daily amount he recommends cutting back on bagels and cookies and adding lean meats, fish, eggs, yogurt, milk and nuts. I tend to avoid dairy so I use almond milk and soy yogurt. And almonds are also a good snack. His example for getting your 100 grams of protein a day is this.  Breakfast – 2 packets instant oatmeal, 1 Tbsp of almond butter and 2/3 skim milk – 19 g Snack – 1 cup nonfat Greek yogurt – 22g Lunch – Tuna salad on whole wheat 23g Snack ¼ cup cubed Swiss cheese 9g Dinner Spaghetti with meat sauce 26g

Any comments?

Love the 1700's - Meet Regan Walker (and a giveaway)


Regan Walker is an award-winning, bestselling author of Regency, Georgian and Medieval romances. Her stories often feature a demanding sovereign who taps his subjects for special assignments. Each of her novels includes real history and real historical figures as characters. And, of course, adventure and love, sometimes on the high seas!
Beverley: Which genre or genres do you write or prefer to write? And why?
Regan: I write what I love to read: historical romance. I love getting lost in the past with a compelling story set deep in history. I’m a reviewer, too, so I read in many subgenres. Historical Romance Review is my blog: https://reganromancereview.blogspot.com/
Beverley: Who influenced you the most in deciding to become a writer?
Regan: I have been a writer since grade school. I don’t think anyone influenced me; it was just something I did. But I did not begin to write historical fiction and historical romance until my law career ended. It began as a hobby and became a passion.
Beverley: What gets your creative juices flowing?
Regan: Research into the past… especially when I discover some juicy historical fact that brings a character to life. In my research for A Fierce Wind, when I learned one of the generals of the Revolution was a man who did not feel constrained by the bounds of morality and, moreover, was viewed by his men as incompetent, well, that allowed me to paint a picture the readers would grasp instantly.
Beverley: Do you have a favorite cartoon character? Why?
Regan: Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit appeals. He’s an adventuring sort and I like that. I also like that the animation is beautifully done.
Beverley: Who would you love most to meet 'in person' and why?
Regan: I think it might be Queen Margaret of Scotland, the wife of Malcolm III. She’s a character in my novel Rebel Warrior (and The Refuge). I did so much research on her I feel I know her. My research revealed a wise, gracious and beautiful woman who gave up her dream to embrace another for the benefit of Scotland and that sacrifice was to have positive effects for centuries.
Beverley: If you had an unexpected free day what would you do with it?
Regan: I would spend it with a friend, beginning with breakfast out at a beachside restaurant. Then perhaps a bit of shopping, a movie and an elegant dinner. Being with someone you like and with whom you share common interests is a delight.
Beverley: What are you working on now?
Regan: I’m just beginning the research for Rogue’s Holiday, book 5 in the Agents of the Crown series. It’s a Regency set in 1820 that beginning with the Cato Street Conspiracy that could have wiped out the British cabinet but the plot was foiled before it reached fruition. And then the story will go to Brighton, the pleasure palace of the new King George IV, where Sir Robert Powell will meet his nemesis, Miss Chastity Reynolds.

Blurb for A Fierce Wind
An exciting story of love in the time of revolution when loyalties are torn and love is tested and when the boy Zoé Donet knew as a child turns out to be the man of her dreams.
Love in the time of revolution
France 1794
Zoé Ariane Donet was in love with love until she met the commander of the royalist army fighting the revolutionaries tearing apart France. When the dashing young general is killed, she joins the royalist cause, rescuing émigrés fleeing France.
One man watches over her: Frederick West, the brother of an English earl, who has known Zoé since she was a precocious ten-year-old child. At sixteen, she promised great beauty, the flower of French womanhood about to bloom. Now, four years later, as Robespierre’s Terror seizes France by the throat, Zoé has become a beautiful temptress Freddie vows to protect with his life.
But English spies don’t live long in revolutionary France.

Excerpt for A Fierce Wind – Freddie goes after Zoe in Granville
       Freddie paced the deck, glancing toward shore, wishing the fog would miraculously part to reveal the skiff he awaited. He had tried to convince Zoé of the foolhardy nature of her excursions into the ports to gather the refugees like a mother hen gathers her chicks. Stubborn as always and determined to save as many as she could, she would hear none of it. While he could admire her courage, he feared for her safety.
Standing amidships, Bequel nervously chewed on a bit of broom straw, bespeaking his unease at the vulnerable state of the ship idling in Granville’s harbor for so long.
The crew, silently going about their tasks, kept glancing toward shore.
Except for the occasional band of drunken men, loud in their goodbyes as they left the taverns, silence reigned on the quay some fifty yards away.
Freddie’s anxiety reached a crescendo. “She should have returned by now. Something must have gone wrong.” He faced Bequel. “Spare me a few of the crew. I’m going after her.”
That the quartermaster motioned two of the crew forward and ordered them to lower the boat and take Freddie ashore betrayed his worry for the capitaine’s niece.
Moments later, the rowing boat moved silently through the fog-shrouded waters. Freddie’s stomach churned, his eyes fixed on the wharf emerging from the dense mist.
What could have happened to her?
