I've realized that if I'm writing, I MUST know the battles my MC would fight and why she would fight them because, if not, there's no reason for others to cheer on my new MC.

Hello, blogosphere! Glad to be back. Sorry about the whole no show, no write the past month or so. I've been *gasp* outlining. "But, you've never been a big outliner before! You're more of a pantser!" Yeah, about that. Recently, I've been doing tons of research for a new WIP. It's an adult manuscript, like I mentioned before and this is the first week I've actually started writing it. I'm on chapter two and am lovin' it. And even though I've got all the main points outline, my creativity is still overflowing to the pages. I might've made plot points, but there are still plenty of things to add that spice up the pages. And they're not spicy, but HOT (at least to me). Why? Recently, I took a stand on this manuscript. I decided what's worth fighting for, what's worth walking away from a job for, and what's worth turning my world upside down for. In the end, I came up with serious emotions and passions and figured out how to get them in the manuscript--and on every single page.
