Is there something going around? My son was literally this exhausted on Tuesday but I thought it was a combo of teenager hormones and too little sleep. My other son slept a lot on Wednesday, but I thought it was because he was sick… I’m feeling a little oblivious right now.
So, in other news, I started my next book. I vowed after I completed the last Wild Cress Family book, I wasn’t writing another BDSM. That’s was it. No more. I was done. It’s not that I don’t like it—I ♥ writing BDSM almost as much as caffeine. I just want to be sure it stays…fresh. I want all my books to be great. My friends and family have strict instructions to smack me across the side of the head if I start hacking out books just for the buck. Quality is far more important to me than anything else. I guess that’s why I’m so tough on books I critique too. My crit partners know I won’t pull punches. I’ll be nice, but I’ll say it as it is.
Back to the new book…so I started writing. I had a concept and I knew the character’s situations. I even knew my ending. At the end of page one, I discovered there was something I didn’t know. My hero is a Dom. WTF. Damn it. Sigh… Sometimes these things just come across so strongly, you have to go with it. I’m going with it.
Children: After parent torture, one child is about to get voted off the island. Seems he’s been shoving everything—homework, notes to me, etc.—into his desk.
