Beginnings

So it's been a week (almost to the minute) since I've written fiction. The good thing is I've not been inundated with ideas. But I have some old ideas trotting out, like they're auditioning or something.

I have three romantic suspenses that I have pretty good beginnings with.

I have a hostage negotiator story, where the hero is the negotiator and the heroine is a mediator who's being held hostage in the first scene. The beginning was strong enough to final in a contest and get requested many moons ago, but I didn't have enough story to back it up. So I'm trying to work that out.

Then I have a reunion romance, very dark, a couple of cops who divorced after their child was murdered. They end up working together on a kidnapping case a few years later, and believe it's the same perpetrator who killed their daughter. I think I know where to go with this one, but not sure I can. Like I said, pretty dark.

And I have a cruise ship story, where the cruise ship is taken over by pirates. It's not a huge cruise ship, but I still need to know more about ships and I'm not sure what I'm wanting to do with the relationship.

I also have a non-RS (at least I think) that I started in 2002. I wrote an awesome beginning, then trashed it when I thought I'd make it an RS. I think I want to make it a straight contemporary romance about a veterinarian who's been taking care of his family when his father comes home from prison, where he's been sentenced for killing the hero's mother.

Ugly day today. Rain and flooding. Driving should be FUN!
