There is always those moments of excitement when the story is brand-new in your mind. Your thoughts are of characters, scenes, GMC (goal, motivation, conflict), events, and the great happily-ever-after at the end.
Right now, my mind is occupied with zombies. I’m working on Love in the Time of Zombies. The characters are a former, neglected housewife; Emily Gray and a truck driving, poetry-sprouting hero; Seth Ripley. I love them and they so deserve the happily ever after, after what I’m putting them through.
As a reader, are you willing to go along for the roller coaster ride if you know there is a happy ending?
