Sorry I’m updating so late. I could be all cool and say it’s because I didn’t want to stymie further comments on the violent hero post (which is partially true–keep commenting if you’re interested), but I admit it. I’ve spent huge chunks of time today trying to work, watching Beauty and the Beast with the Faerie, and obsessively checking for updates about the Led Zeppelin reuinion show, and trying like hell to get onto that damn registration website (still no luck, it’s crashed.) The hubs is a HUGE Zephead and I’m a pretty big fan myself, so we’re aching to go. Keep your fingers crossed for us.
Also, working a lot. It hit me with terrifying clarity earlier today that to reach my end-of month goal I need to write approximately 40k words between now and September 30. Which will very well turn into more, as I’ve had a flash of inspiration regarding Demon Inside, which I’m very excited about and may well add another 10-15k to the ms.
See, I’m not really a detailed plotter. As you know, I come up with a plot and then I have some stepieces and there we go. I have a new setpiece to add, which I think will be really cool and set an appropriately creepy tone going into the very creepy finale. Yay!
And what else? I have another taboo post planned, which should be fun. You guys are the best. And I’m terrible. I’ve been neglecting all of you lately, because if I’m not posting or replying I’m wrestling with either a toddler or a WIP. Give me another couple of weeks. I promise once all this stuff is off my desk I’m taking at least a couple of weeks off, and so will be around more.
1. Yes, I changed my picture. I think this one actually looks like me, so I’m pleased with a picture of me for the first time in years. Not thrilled, as it isn’t perfect, but pleased.
2. In the process of building content for the Stacia Kane site. Anyone interested in having some fun, and coming up with some interview questions for my characters?
