Yes, I know that sounds simplistic but here's how it works: I think in terms of scenes. Each scene is a short story with a beginning, middle and end. If one scene isn't working I write around it -- I skip ahead to another scene or go back to an earlier scene that needs work. Or maybe I'll just write about the weather in a troublesome scene. Here's the secret: creativity generates creativity. If you stop, the act of creation stops.(less)

Yes, I do have a regular publishing schedule (Jan. for my Krentz titles, April for Quick titles and August for my Castle titles). You can get details on my Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/JayneAnnKrentz ) And, yes, I am currently writing my historicals in the Victorian era. Not sure when I'll get back to the Regency or Medieval eras. But who knows? (less)
