Whew this is good right? 2 posts in like 3 weeks? Is anyone still listening? Hope so...

Anyways, the unique thing about characters is when they disturb you form doing things. Might be reading, writing, working at the day job *groans* and SLEEPING! Yes sleeping.

Something about a muse that gets you up in the middle of the night but even more special is the one that plays out like movie in your head. WOW. Yeah that happened to me last night. I was sleeping and Channing Tatum knocked on my head and climbed in bringing the last posts' hottie, Pedro Perestello with him. What did he say? Write me a story, Shar where I'm falling in love with this hot man with beautiful eyes. Make it tense, make us break apart for a bit, get back together for one night then break apart again. Then, have Chris Helmsworth as my man and make him leave me for a bit too, only to return and fight with Pedro over me.

And my head obliged. And I had a lovely, angsty, m/m military story. OOH YUM!!!!!

Yep, that doesn't happen too often. I recall Masquerade was another story that played out like a movie in my brain. Also Something Like Jayden, That Thing. And I Like Em Pretty did as well.

Oh and this... wow, is it speaking to me. No character names, 3 hot men with tempers, different backgrounds, military men who are looking for happy endings. Yep, this really is a BL kind of story since its military men but Michael is writing it. I do love when the muses can wake me up and give me a clear idea of what they want. No question, this plot bunny has wings that definitely will turn into a story before the year is out!

Whats up now? Well I'm on pace to do my 500k. Im ahead for the month.

Im working on shorts, ML3, and edits for Mon Amour as well as Closely Guarded. I'll also be finally doing Something Like Jayden

Thanks for listening!

*Colton Ford looks like I feel*

Good morning and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

And yet another edition of my writing journal.

Well, it's 430 am and I'm awake before work. Been up since two. Why? Well that's because the plot bunnies were a callin'...

Now mind you, I just finished a short story and I'm about to do another for a good friend before I do the full later on in the year. So, I really only have edits to do but in my infinite wisdom, I decided to write out all the stories in my head right now and place them in a doc.

This has happened before! When I had story ideas I put them in a doc with just details, pics of my characters, etc. However, when I cleaned my HD on my laptop, I accidentally deleted these files. GAH! Big mistake but I didn't worry too much because they were still in my head. In addition, I have others actually written out on paper with pen. WHAT A CONCEPT! No one can read it but me! :/

Anyways, to make this long story longer, I recently decided to try getting more organized for 2013. One of my goals was to make a schedule of all the books I was going to write for the year and when so I could mak my goal of 500k and 10 50k novels. Well, guess what? I stopped at like March. Why you ask? Because all my ideas were still in my head and I said, ooh, why don't I put them on paper?

Since I'm already slightly ahead of the game with part one of the Wretched finished, I attempted to accomplish this last evening

Much like the picture depicts above they attacked me. Almost every idea I'd been thinking of was in a doc with pics, small details, some with titles others without. Some had the pseudo already underneath and some didn't! EEK! Some had nothing but pics and a sentence. Jesus! This sort of alarmed me so I had to share this post with you. Lots of incomplete ideas that needed to be formed ended up on pages. And in looking at them, I'm thinking I have enough ideas to last me the next 2-3 years. That's not counting the ones I've written on paper in my chicken scratch!

So what is the lesson learned here peeps? You can't really PLAN the whole year out. I can say, okay, this year I'll write Through the Darkness, finish AS, write the Incumbent, etc but I'm not sure i can say, this month I'll do this story, the next I'll do that one. It must come naturally. 

That's unless you have submission deadlines. This year I only have 3. The Wretched every other month, a sub for the military antho for IRM, and the GRL charity antho. These are the only deadlines I must make for now. Other than that, it's a free for all for the plot bunnies to race to my head first and say, hey I wanna be written, NOW BITCH!

Wow, I'm amazed at the power of the brain, how it's able to retain information and in the head of an author that could be a dangerous thing. Unfortunately, active muses don't really know how to behave. In reality though, do we really want them to? 

Nah, I don't. Better to have a bunch of ragged ideas than none at all!

Oh and lastly? It doesn't help when you see new pics or videos like the one I posted up above of Colton Ford. Now I want to write an m/m story with an older singer and his younger lover... :/

Thank you for listening to me ramble

*whistles* Woohoo, looking good BA!

Oh, sorry, hello!

The man up above is my muse of the moment, BA Pointe or Darien Moseley from Closely Guarded. In real life, he is model Ryan Paevey but that's beside the point.

He isn't happy with me and neither is Michael (Mandrake) since life and its stresses got in the way of me technically winning Nano for the 2nd st8 year but oh well, I take some consolation in the fact I still wrote over 50K.


How? In addition to the 31k plus on Closely, I finished 3 stories. One het two m/m, subbed both. All subbed too. One of the mm was mostly finished. The others I did and revised with over 20k on all all. Hmm, might be more. I think I might've lost count along the way and forgotten a few but either way I'm proud of what I did despite the issues this month.

I'm really not able to write while stressed. This past week I told this muse to stay silent and he did until today, I finally did writing sprints with author friends and woke him up. Hence the pic of him lying down. *heh* Anyway, so, maybe I dont get the pretty icon on my blog but hey I did write 50k.

Woot for me!

Now that BA is awake he wont let me sleep. I'd like to... I really would.

Damn muse...

Yes very late posting again.

I need someone to cry out my sorrows to.

Ah well.

So, I have accepted defeat in Nano.

With 4 more days to go I am on the cusp of 30k and the stresses in my life have taken away my writing muse for the story.

Its too much thinking. I had 4 sets of edits, on first batch for 2 of them. The other two, the books got out but not without undue stress that hasn't killed my muses just the one for Clsely Guarded.

Sure, I'll work on it but I can tell you, I cannot push out 20k in the next 4 days. JUST CANT!

I love the story but with something that complex, I need to be less stressed.

I'll try writing on it but I seriously doubt I'll make it to the 50k.

Ive still almost wrote 50k for the month. just on 3 stories.


I finished 3 others, only subbed 2 of them The other I need someone to look over b4 I do.

So I could claim victory if I cheated but the rules state a novel, not 3!

Ah well, so I didnt get there but I'm proud of the story still. Michael Mandrake and I have 2 novels to get out and perhaps we'll finish this story in 2012

I tried...


No Nano win for me

Cez la Vie!
