I’m on a roll editing Lucas’s Story. (Yeah!!) So much that I have to force myself to take breaks (No!!) so the story doesn’t suffer. (Well, fine then.)
Last year I came home from Cancun filled with story ideas and character/muse conversations. It. Was. Great. Continue reading
We finish up today, talking a little bit about tech, editing, and who Mom liked best. Spoiler alert: RB is sadly confused. Continue reading
Back for part 2, in which we cover writing process, writing and family, and sugar fixes. Enjoy! Continue reading
Hey guys, it’s Ella here. When RB told me she’d finished the first draft of her new book, after I picked my jaw up off of the floor (and finished my tantrum) I asked her if she would do a post about how she works. Since I had specific questions she let me interview her, which was awesome, but the post got really long so we broke it up into three separate posts. Here’s the first part of the interview. We’ll put up the next tomorrow and the third the day after. Enjoy! Continue reading
Since Callie no longer needs Muse’s whole attention I’m ready to get back to Lucas’s Story, the second book in my Trihune Series. I know some followers—Lisa!—have been waiting eagerly to hear news about this book. Some may have even left a few—many!—words of—hurry up! Why are you taking so long?!?—encouragement. 🙂 I just want to say thanks. Your words of—impatience—support have meant a lot. I mean it.
So how do I get my head synced with Lucas’s after all this time?
A tiny voice in my head says, “I told you so. I knew this would happen when you devoted Muse to Callie. Lucas is gone. He lost interest. He thinks you don’t love him anymore. His HEA is dead. DO YOU HEAR ME? DEAD!”
The first step is to not listen to the unhelpful, tiny voice. Continue reading
As Ella pointed out—lovingly?—in a previous post, I like things in a set way. Lately I’ve been writing from 6 am to 7 am before work. After a particular nasty workday last week, I needed a distraction from the horrible person that put me in my mood. Reading is my go-to stress reliever. This time it was Callie who popped in, asking to be heard. Husband and Bubbles were gone riding roller coasters so it was just me and Dog for the night anyway. It’d been a long time since I was this energized about writing. Callie and I had a great time. I wrote close to seventeen hundred words in under an hour. It. Was. Awesome. The rest of the week’s morning writing went very well, too. Most every day I wrote over my quota and I was only late to work once because of it.
Until this week. Continue reading
