Wanted: One Hot Raunchy Read

Hey – I’m blogging over at Chicas today, so stop on by if you can.

I’ve decided I need to get back to reading to help with the writing. THAT’S what’s been missing all this time. I haven’t picked up a book in MONTHS. Months, I tell you. It’s a very sad state of affairs.

So I need to get me a dirty little book to motivate me to write again. Now. Where am I going to find the time to do that?

I used to read before falling asleep but mostly that was because I didn’t want to be bothered by the husband. Now that I don’t have the husband, I don’t read any more. I guess I used it as a barrier to keep him away from me because then I could “fall asleep” while reading and he wouldn’t pester me to have sex. Isn’t that an awful confession? Awful, but true.

I haven’t been very gung-ho on writing anything lately. In fact, it takes all I can just to write my blog entries these days. And I have absolutely nothing to blog about lately over at ShoeIQ.

My life feels rather chaotic right now and I think that might be part of the problem. I write best when things are calm and there is no turmoil. Writing while depressed does NOT work for me either. I know some folks do their best writing when depressed. But not me. And it’s not that I have to be totally 100 percent happy either. I just need balance. I don’t feel like I have that balance right now.

Valentine’s Day was no different than any other day, though I have to say something kinda cool DID happen. I listen to the morning guys at KZPS every day. In fact, I’ve been listening to Bo & Jim when they were on Q102 WAAAAAY back when. I was a youngun then – in high school at the time. Anyway, they were having an over-the-top Valentine’s Day show yesterday morning, so I emailed them with this:

I think [Valentine’s Day] is a bullshit holiday and I write romance! And yes, you guys are making me sick! haha

Much to my surprise, I got a reply!

Happy Valentine’s Day, Michelle.
Wow, you really are an author of romance novels. Congratulations. I checked out your publisher’s site and took a quick look at your books.
I hope they sell a million.

HA! So. I reply with:

Hey you’re the first to wish me a happy v-day! I would love you forever if you plug me ;) 

Well guess what? HE PLUGGED ME! And TALK DIRTY TO ME. Man it was SO awesome to hear them talk about me and my little books on the radio. HA! I totally had my 15 seconds of fame. It was greatness.

I feel SO special. 😉

Okay that’s it for me. I gotta get to work.

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