Nothing like changing ideas to keep you on your toes!
I'm trying to work on my fake dating Christmas story "Down Under the Mistletoe" but I've been so busy lately that having the free time to sit down and write has been hard to come by. But time to sit down and edit after I've had a long day? Well, that's a lot easier!
So, what does my brain decided to attach itself to? My fireman story, "Rising Heat", of course!
To begin with, I decided to extend the summary.
Where we once had:
An annoying and boring work conference certainly gets interesting when Neil Farris finds a company of firemen sharing his hotel. One of them is gorgeous and seems to be interested in him. A one-night stand with a sexy fireman? Count him in! It's not like he has to worry about seeing the man again. Right?
Now, we have:
Neil Farris is your typical "love 'em and leave 'em" type. He's been told his biggest fear is commitment, but he's not bothered by it. He doesn't see the point of a long-term relationship. He either gets bored or his partners realise he's too bossy and scathing. It's easier to stick to one-night stands.
When his boring work conference in Brisbane sends him to the wrong hotel. He finds himself surrounded by gorgeous firemen. Luckily for him, one of them is gay and interested in a good time.
Scott Fields is everything Neil looks for in a fling. Gorgeous, good in bed and temporary. He's also nice and considerate, which is a bonus. It's a shame he only gets two nights with the fireman before he's returning home.
However, much to his surprise, he runs into Scott a few days later. It turns out they're both from the same town. When Scott asks him out Neil is hesitant, but agrees. He really isn't interested in dating or relationships. Can the sweet and sexy fireman change his mind?
I enjoyed being able to grow it to include a bit more about the characters and the story. I plan on extending the other three summaries on my "Current Works - Editing" section. But, that's for another time.
Right now, I should go back to working on my next novels rather than procrastinating with a blog post. Whoops!
Let's see what ends up being finished first - and when!
