Free Falling………..

Been in a tailspin the past few weeks but think I’ve managed to right the ship.  Looking forward to getting back to the business of writing.  I’ve actually missed my characters and somehow hope they’ve miraculously gotten themselves out of the web they’ve spun, but somehow I doubt it.  They are going to need my help and I’m up for the challenge.

This roller coaster continues and I’m glad to be back on the ride!!!!

This thing has grown legs…….

Characters, plots, twists, conflict, love, harmony and oh yeah, drama.

Never would I have believed that a simple love story could have become so complicated. Real life is tough enough, hoping it also comes with a “Happily Ever After.”

Maybe one day, my creepy crawly will be a beautiful butterfly.

Now that’s happily ever after!

Reading, Writing and Arithmetic……..

Okay, so there is no math involved in this post.

Writing is consuming me.  I have moved forward through a small blockade set up to ruin my predetermined time frame of completing my first-draft manuscript.  This is good news (I think).  I experienced an epiphany last night on a new direction for book number two.  Of course, that would require I finish book number one.

Whenever I get stuck, I like to read someone else’s creation and forget my troubles for a while.   There are great blogs out there to keep me inspired and I would like to thank the die-hard bloggers who breathe inspiration back into my life every morning.

When Writing A Romance Novel Feels Like Cheating…….

I have spent the past couple of days reading many blogs and articles about the actual art of writing a sex scene.  Placing yourself in the bodies of your characters, you need emotion and all your senses to fuel the scene.  Although the scene is meant to be hot and fast, it takes forever to explain how a simple touch can ignite a physical reaction.

I’ve spent the morning with my characters whom up until this morning had not engaged in their first sexual encounter.  The deed is done.

I’m exhausted.
