Writing and Other Things
Quote du Jour:
â€œMy heart is, and always will be, yours.â€
–Edward Ferrars, Sense and Sensibility
To The Guy In South Africa: Super charged oat feed, you say? How about just a gallant steed and a nobleman? I could possibly stretch the whole All Powerful Horse Thing, because this is fantasy weâ€™re talking here. But this is â€œseriousâ€ fantasy. :hehe: Mayhap some evil spell will beget our hero and his horse and then all hell breaks loose. Donâ€™t worry about the pendant. All will be well. There is a happily ever after. By the way, are you a writer? You should be. :thumbsup:
At the moment, Iâ€™m distracted by my contemporary erotica. Iâ€™ve committed myself to finishing it this week. Which means I must WRITE WRITE WRITE on it every day. Iâ€™m very close to finishing. Iâ€™ve whittled it down to about 10,000 words to go. Cara and Sheba are talking and demanding their story. I need to get to it quickly.
As for the fantasy romance, stalled. I need to dump that chapter 5 and start over. I need to focus and concentrate on the story at hand. I need to cut out about 30,000 words of the original ms. and rewrite a whole bunch of it. It kills me to cut out that much, but I gotta do it. Besides, Iâ€™m sure it will make the writing stronger.
Had a nice evening last night. Cooked hamburgers on the grill, then walked around the block while DS rode his new bike. Heâ€™s getting really good at it. Then I read more of Spell of the Highland and got this close to finishing it before my sonâ€™s bathtime. I should be able to finish today and then itâ€™s on to something else.
Oh, and apparently you readers are a chatty bunch. I surpassed the 400 comment mark this past week. You guys who read my blog day-in and day-out… I just want to say thanks for being there. Ya’ll rock!
I was so bored and restless this weekend I actually cleaned off my desk, my nightstand and my dresser. You can actually SEE the tops of those pieces of furniture now. Itâ€™s amazing! Found some stuff I had been looking for. Like research books I had buried on the Disaster That Was My Desk. Things are organized now and everything is in place.
The only thing Iâ€™m missing now is the birthday card I bought for my friend. I have no idea where it is. I will have to find it here in the next week or so because her birthday is coming up. If I canâ€™t find it, I guess Iâ€™ll have to go buy another one.
Weâ€™re nearly halfway through September already. Can that be possible? Halloween will be here before we know it. And this year, Iâ€™m buying that wench outfit Iâ€™ve been wanting. And NO ONE is going to stop me. No one, I say.
