Given how rough this summer has been so far, it’s probably no surprise that the writing hasn’t been great, either. :slamdesk
I agreed to a rather short deadline for my current book—PROJECT: RUNAWAY HEIRESS—to begin with, but any hopes of meeting it were shot down & quickly swept away in the maelstrom of my grandmother’s stroke, death, funeral, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. (The extra et ceteras are to emphasize all the other crap that has befallen me in the past couple of months. :nowait )
So the writing has been slow. Little spurts here & there when I can get something done.
Which doesn’t bode well for the Muses. They get annoyed by short little bursts. By more time away from a story than with it. They want to delve in & immerse themselves in the characters & plot, not spend half the time refreshing their memories so they can pick up & peck out a few more lines.
BUT! But, but, but…
Things have gotten a little better recently. (Writing-wise. Life-wise, who the heck knows. :Cukoo ) I finally feel like I really know these characters & I’m loving them. Yay! I finally feel like I know where the story is going—clearly & far in advance, not just around the next corner.
And I am headed into the first love scene, which is turning out to be super-steamy. :bed
So even though this one is taking me ages longer than intended, I can’t thank Editor C & everyone else at Harlequin Desire enough for being sweet & supportive & giving me the extra time I need to really do this story justice.
It’s gonna be good, folks. Well worth the wait. :thumbsup
