Good and Bad

The characters in my current work-in-progress have invaded my dreams. This is good and bad. Good, because they are as real to me as they can get. Bad, because I get less sleep. Yes, instead of worrying about genuine flesh and blood people, I am apprehensive over the fate of my imaginary characters. Of course, I am the one who put them in such dire straits in the first place.

The characters are undoubtedly stuck in my brain because I made a lot of progress yesterday--when I wasn't procrastinating by dabbling with a new look for my website. Every time I hit a snag while I was writing, I would surf off and play with a different text color, link color, or font.

Still, I am roughly sixty pages from the end of the book. But my poor characters are really in trouble now.

It amazes me how you keep pumping out those books. I made a promise to myself that I will attend the annual NJ Romance Writers Convention this year.

That is probably why you are such a talented writer. And how the heck are you able to keep writing book after book the way you do? As I always say, I truly admire you.

I think I waste too much time in a day...

I have always wanted to write, but I think I would bore people to tears. It's just not my talent. Keep 'em coming.

Lita and K.: I have a lot of stories to tell. :^)

K.: I did not get serious about writing until Daughter #3 was four years old. Babies take up a lot of time. You aren't wasting any time when you're taking care of a baby.

Cindy: Everyone has something interesting to say. :^)
