Galley Proof & Tag

The weekend went FAR too fast for my liking. I can’t believe it’s Monday already. And you know what? I can’t even remember what I did on Friday. THAT stucks.

So. I can’t remember if I’ve blogged about this or not, but I got my galley proof of A BEND IN TIME. Corrections are due March 1 so last night, I printed the entire thing, sat at the kitchen table and read all evening. I finished the book and there are some errors I need to get fixed before it goes to print.

It’s funny – I can definitely tell a difference in my written from the beginning of the book to the end. The writing is tighter toward the back of the book. And part two IS my favorite section. It’s where Skye and Dane finally realize they are irresistable to each other. 🙂

Lara tagged me with that I needed when I write. You know, it would be great if I was writing and I could answer this question… 😉 Actually. I need silence when I write. All I want to hear is the hum of the computer. Okay, sometimes I do write at work during my lunch hour on the Neo and that background bustle does help. But I find that the moment I get immersed in the world, I have to stop and it jerks me right back out and THAT sucks.

Anyway. Things I have on my desk when I write. The Romance Writers’ Phrase Book – it’s cliched but it helps. Building Believable Characters – a resourceful character thesaurus. Thumb drive. Pictures of the baby. Music. And what type of music depends on the mood I’m in and what I’m writing. Dictionary. A drink of some sort – coffee, tea, martini. Printer. Every now and again, I have my child running in and out.

I guess that about covers it. 🙂

I’m tagging Dennie and Ames and anyone else who wants to answer the tag.

And sinc I’m freezing my ass off as I write this, I’m off to bed. To my nice warm bed with that’s already pre-heated. hehe

I wish you all could be inside my head. The conversation is sparkling.
