this writer’s life

Top Secret Project #2 is turning into “The Book That Won’t End”! :may17

Don’t get me wrong—it’s a great story with a great hero & heroine. :may21   But I’ve been working on this last chapter for what seems like forever.  (And FYI, I’ve been on the “last chapter” for three chapters now. :may33 )

I want to take both of my characters by the neck & scream, “Just say I love you already & let’s be done with this!” :may8

But you know how I am…I really want the end to be perfect & romantic & sigh-worthy, so I’m struggling with every…single…word. :may20

I only hope that you guys end up thinking the extra time I’m taking with this one was worth it. :may34   And if it’s any consolation, I got goosebumps last night over what the hero was saying to the heroine, so I think it will be. :may15

    :may12 you can do it! :May10

    • Heidi says:

      Thanks, Donna! *I* can do it, if only *they* would. :may24

      Last night, I gave up on the perfect ending & jumped into the epilogue instead. Oh, I’ll go back & polish up that “last chapter” but moving forward was better than standing still… :may17

    I always appreciate your effort!!
    You worry and then you rock it!! :may22
    I have no doubt..whatsoevah!! :may3

    • Heidi says:

      :may32 Thanks, Hollie, I needed that! It’s true that I get to a point with just about every story where I think I’ll never reach the end or I want to pull my hair out…& yet eventually it all comes together beautifully. I just need to *remember* that. And occasionally vent here in The Dungeon. :May37

    I’ve been reading your books since the very first one and I have no doubt that this one will be as good if not better than all those that have come before. You are one of the writers whose books I automatically buy without reading the back or looking at reviews. I always know it is worth reading. Hang in there and just know, none of us will give up, we’ll be waiting when you’re through and we will read it, most likely, the day it is released.


    • Heidi says:

      You’re so sweet, Holly, thank you! :may7 I love to hear that, & just like Hollie’s comment above, it’s just the encouragement I need at this point. :may14

      This couple is GREAT…I just want to be sure they get the HEA they really, really deserve! And the words…they have to be P-E-R-F-E-C-T. :may20

    Is some in need of some intervention type talking ??? :may8 :may12

    • Heidi says:

      Very possibly. Or maybe a slap upside the head, a fire lit under my butt… :may23

      Wait! I mean under my hero’s & heroine’s butts! Yeah, that’s it. :may19

    Okay, I’m just going to throw this offer out there to ya…

    Why don’t you let me skim through it for you. See what’s going on and then I’ll let you know if there are parts you can leave out. You know…maybe you just need another set of eyes to help. :mat27

    • Heidi says:

      LOL You’re so cute. If only there were time to let you do that. But these guys are going to get with the program if it kills them…I mean, me! :may25
