A pretty good night

Alright, alright, I've been a slacker lately. I don't know why, but I've been super tired after coming home from work lately, and I haven't had any energy to actually write.
So I made myself write tonight.
And wouldn't you know it, I got 2.000 words down in my new 2nd book. And I believe that its title came to me tonight, not that I'll tell you what it is yet (MUAHAHAHAHAAA). Hopefully I can pull the same magic the rest of the week. If I can average around 2,000 words a night, I'll catch up pretty quickly.

Too funny

I'm watching Private Practice with my sweet hubby, and its the episode where Violet wrote a book and it got picked up by a publisher. Anyhoo - she's having her friends read her book and she keeps checking on them asking if it sucks, if its boring, etc., and I couldn't help but laugh.

That is exactly me!

I keep doing that to the people who read my book. I just thought it was too perfect, so we are saving that episode in the DVR so that if I ever need to make sure I'm not crazy, I can watch that part and understand that every writer goes through it.

You don't have to tell me twice... Oh, you do?

So, I've been stuck for a while, not feeling like writing anything. It's been crazy at work (which I actually enjoy being super busy anyway), but lately, its been sucking the life from my brain. When I get home from work, I'm so mentally exhausted that I haven't been able to write a thing.

So I read most of my book and started to realize what the characters in my head have been trying to say. It's not Thrash's turn yet. Yes, he's telling me to write his story, but its just not time to tell it yet. So, while I do have a good chunk of his book written, it'll just have to wait.

Today I started writing more in my Guardian's series and I'm pretty excited about it since it seems to flow well from my first book. There are a few changes I'll have to make to Dark Seduction, but I think in the long run it's what I (and the characters) need.
