Today, after doing a little more agent research, I will begin a scene in my next novel. It might not be the first scene in the final manuscript but it is where I need to begin. The setting is a small tropical island my husband and I have vacationed a couple times. Just thinking of it now, my sense are alive with colors, sounds, smells. I'll add to those memories, some imaginary characters, some research, some adventures, and lots of conflict. Hopefully I'll have a story that will not only make kids anxious to turn the next page, but will inspire an editor to snatch up my novel before anyone else takes it!
