(Good Friends, Don & Evelyn)
All right I am thinking, This senior romance novel has gotten too involved in suspense, but I still like it. Of course I would, I am the author . When writing, I do not know the ending of the book, and am thinking first, what is going to be the ‘hook’. Once I get the hook set, what is going to be the reward and finally how is this sucker gonna end?

Whoopee, I now have the ending and what I think is a nice (sweet) surprise for my two main characters.

Problem is, once I know the ending I start to rush to get there, I gotta slow down and let the characters smell the roses.

It is not too early to think of the best title. This is a senior romance. The guy is in his 70’s has never been married. The lady in her 70’s also, and is a recent widow. They are from two ends of the spectrum. He wealthy, no religious orientation. She a doctor, but from very humble beginnings. Her church is much the center of her life. He is from Pittsburgh, she from the small town of Mt Bell in North Carolina.
They met each other in medical school, but went different directions.
My original thought was, ‘Finally, Love”, ‘And Finally Love’. I thought once: “A Senior Can Still Love”. Then “Yes, Seniors Love”
Does it make any difference to you about the comma? “Finally, Love” or “Finally Love” ? Adding the And, puts it closer to the top alphabetically, ha! “And Finally Love”

I switched from a profession of story teller to writer. It is still hard, since I have a limited vocabulary, I sit at times for five minutes thinking of a word I want to use. (that is age, my friend). I have learned, to keep my chain of thought I will just insert xxxxxxx and continue. Later the word will come to me and I can go back and fill in the x’s.

All that aside, I like short titles, especially for novels, that is obvious, i.e. Sticky, Rags and S’gar. LOL
Whadayathink for a title? Got a better one? Shoot it to me. I hope to have this one published before ‘love is in the air’ in the Spring.
Every year at Christmas I ask myself: Self, where is your Christmas book?
