No, it doesn't have anything to do with my update.

Just pretty.

I don't really have any witty revelations this week.

Just woke up :P

The muses have been busy in my head so we started another story and will do another this week.

Currently, we have 7 WIP's

African Sun
Mi Familia
Taming Wild Horses
Trois
True Meaning Two
(New) Closely Guarded
Lessons in Ink

Now, on that last one, I regarded it as finished right?

Well, the muses had more to say on this one after it was rejected by a publisher. They gave the usual reason, doesn't fit our needs which made me think they didn't need anymore gay stories and when I went back through it to revise before submitting it to another, they started talking again! :/

Why does that happen?

Dunno.

But as I discussed in last weeks update, I'd rather have a finished story than unfinished.

Btw, Closely Guarded is my M/M/M. It might have some "closed door" hetero scenes since my main character is bi.

Closely is based on a fic I wrote and the good thing is, its a lovely plot that was able to be turned into something good.

So there you go!

We also have plenty of short stories we want to do for sub calls as well as Edits which this week includes Masquerade.

Today, I'm starting the long version of "Sugar Daddy" which will be awesome!

Last week, My Lieutenant and A Second Chance were contracted.

Thanks for listening

Greetings folks. Welcome to another Monday!

So, NEWS!

I finished Lessons in Ink! WOOT!

Another one off the number of WIP's.

As I try to get better at writing, I've noticed something new about myself each time. This week, how I struggle with an ending!

ARGHHH! The Muses know it but they don't convey it to you. you're sitting there, dumbfounded, wondering how to end the particular story. I don't mean necessarily the ending scene, but the actual ending. Last line

Usually in all my writing, I have tried to tie in the title or at least the plot of the story. Sometimes I have succeeded, other times, erm no. I have always felt like I wanted to leave a lasting impression on my reader where they would say, what an ending. I'm satisfied, and want to read more by this writer.

In a lot of ways, I myself am not satisfied by my choice of words. So typically, I go back to the story to read over it for errors and check for coherence, not only that, I read the ending again and again, seeing if I myself enjoy it. If not, I change it.

Once I get one that I sort of like, then I'll leave it, hoping that if it gets picked up, I'll come up with a better one of the editor will. LOL

But why is that ending so damn hard? The last few words...I mean, only a sentence right?

Well, yeah, but it's the one that will make the reader draw a conclusion to say, oh that was great or that book sucked.

THAT, my friends, IS MY FEAR!

*****

So, yeah, I Finished Lessons!

That leaves, AS, the ongoing Mi Familia, A Second Chance, and Trois as my WIP's.

This week, I will be doing round two of edits on Binding Justice. Plus, I'll be starting, Taming Wild Horses, my gay foursome story for my main editor. He is giving me till June 10th to complete.

Trois is on hold because I have Justice and I need to edit my Pirate story for a publisher. I also would like to finish A Second Chance for my other pub.

Right after, I will continue to do Taming as well as start reediting Masquerade and Sweetest Taboo.

A lot on the docket, but hopefully, the work will all pay off as I try to get 20 stories/books published this year.

Toodles for now!

Greetings!

Today, being March 15th, is a deadline for one of my publishers. If you can recall, I spoke about doing a Mobster story for STARbooks. Well...erm...I had an idea and because me and my muse could not wrap our heads around it, it fizzled.

So, I have decided to forego the subcall, and move on to the next one which is due in five days. It is a hetero with a twist. *snicker*

Why have I done this? Well, one, I don't want to submit a story just to submit and two, I feel, that if I really wanted to do this story, I would've done it by now.

Usually when my muses speak, I listen, or I'm bullied into doing so. BL, who was going to write that one, says she'd like to get My Lieutenant done. Michael Says to get back to African Sun and Vertigo.  Rawiya says, do Lessons in Ink and Trois. So see, they all have other things that are more important and the idea though there was not fully developed enough to go with. So, I'll put it only with the other 100 or so story Ideas I have stored in my brain and on paper. Not even counting, the stories on my laptop that could use an edit or a completion! LOL

Listen to the Muse! It will not steer you wrong...most of the time...

:)
