Oh boy

I am reading an AMAZING series right now. I can't put the sucker down. But, something else has happened since I've started reading it - another new series idea. It doesn't really have anything to do with the series I'm reading, but something just triggered inside my brain.

I know what you're about to say. Really Kristie? Don't you have enough projects already?

I can't help it! I have soo many ideas floating around in here. So many characters, so many encounters, and so many amazing scenes - I can't even think straight.

So, what's my plan? Well - I'm going to try to at least type up the general idea of what this new series will be. Depending on how motivated I am by it, I might keep working on it, or I might go back and work on the 2nd book in my Guardian's series, which I'm motivated by right now as well. Those boys are close to my heart, and I hate that I've been putting them on hold.

Thankfully Raider is patient with me.

Oops - did I just say that?

Talking' shop

Life has been really crazy lately. Work has been over-the-top busy, and I've hardly had any energy to do anything after work. I've cranked out a couple thousand words here and there, but not nearly what I've wanted to accomplish.

One thing I've found that is a major stress reliever is talkin' shop. Okay, yeah, I don't work at an auto shop or anything, what I mean is talking to other authors about what they're working on. I can't believe how much fun it is to fill others in on what I've been up to, as well as hear what they're working on.

A friend from work is writing a novel that I'm betting with be HUGE. I'm sooo excited for her and can't wait to start reading it!

I've also found that talking about it really motivates me. Even if I don't end up having time or energy to actually write when I get home, at least I'm always thinking about it. I know, as soon as things slow down a little at work and I have time to breath again, that I'll be able to crank out some amazing books.
