I see some of you have voted in my poll. Three? C'mon! There's more than three of you out there! 4 more days to vote! Were/shiftchangers, witches/sorcerers, and vampires are running neck and neck. Let's here it for the vampires! And really, no one wants to be a demon? Even a sexy demon???
Yes. I'm nearly finished with first draft of Vampire's Trill. I knew that I had a tough scene coming up. Had a lot of terrifying things in it. I don't like to be light footed when I write the more horrific scenes. I hope I did a good job.
And, as always, one of my characters showed his true spots. I didn't even know this about him--although I knew he had to be pretty evil. So, along with my character Sabrina Strong, we discovered this really bad side of him together (she is a touch clairvoyant).
I think this is what I love most about writing. I do know my characters, but some of them just like to break out of that controlled box I have them in and say, "Listen lady, this is the real me, and you'd better write it like that!"
So, yesterday, knowing I had a lot to write, I got down to it. I made some preliminary notes, but decided if I wasted time doing that, I'd never get down to it.
I wrote 21 pages in total. I think it took the better part of the day, because I have other things to do. The words flowed. I loved that.
I need to get an ending on this. Read through what I wrote yesterday.
Still haven't heard from the editor at CMP. I hope she's just busy as hell and simply can't get to me. I'm sure I'm last rung on the ladder, bottom feeder, whatever.
