Nearly Finished!

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.


  1. I can't see the pole but I vote for witch! Don't worry, I'm sure the editor is just busy. Soon…

  2. Oh, thank you for that, Heather.
    (Poll is right hand very top--question is "Out of all the supernaturals which would you want to be?"
    so far there's been 2 votes for witch!
    Witches and vampires are running neck and neck. . . there's gotta be a joke in there somewhere. {:

  3. Yay for almost being done!
    I voted on the poll! (I was the one who said Were-animal/shifter)Being a vampire wold be okay but I just love garlic too much! lol

  4. Oh and also--completely unrelated to this post-- I just finished reading "First Drop of Crimson" last-night :)
    (I'm vary glad I watch your "What I'm Reading" section!)

  5. Cool, Amelia!
    Thanks for dropping by. Glad you voted.
