Progress for Hot Blooded

Posts may get sparse for the next few weeks while I slam through the next two projects. I’m writing them rough and pushing through rather than revising as I go which is my usual M.O. I keep second-guessing myself, and that’s slowing me down. I’m finding that for now, slamming is making the dialogue a lot more real–snappy, funny. The characters I’m working with aren’t that easy to nail. They both have trust issues and only come together when they are ready to explode with lust. Which is okay. Not sure where the story’s going, but I’m trusting my muse to lead me on this one. You’d think a Native American cowboy and a park ranger would write their own story, but they are making me work.

Have to get together a short synopsis for my next Alluring Tales entry. The other ladies in the group have ideas for what they want to do, and since I’m the one cracking the whip to get them motivated to complete the submission, I guess I better get my own butt in gear.

I don’t have any trips planned for the next month and a half, so I should be able to keep my head down and write. Let’s hope it all goes well. Oh, and I’d love to carve out some time to finish up the next installment of Knight Dreams for my newsletter, but I have to shove it down the list of priorities. Sorry! 🙁

In the meantime, I’ll be swimming, writing, swimming some more, writing some more, and then maybe cleaning up the house, because it really needs it–but again, that’s pretty far down the list of priorities. Guess the dust bunnies will have time to play.

In the meantime if you’d like a peak at what’s coming up, check out Sasha White’s blog this week. She’ll be using samples from my next vampire and cowboy novels in her online workshop on voice.
