There is so much to say about writing randomly. I do it all the time. I have tons, and I mean tons of notebooks, sticky-notes, and well, paper. Some might even say I’m a bit crazy with all the things I write down. But today started off as any other day. I woke up, (I’m on vacation so score there) and I decided to sit down at my computer and get my writing on. *What you don’t know is that it’s really Tuesday night, and not Wednesday morning* which is when this post will go live. But that’s a different issue altogether right? Right.
I was talking about random acts of writing. Well, I’m taking a marketing class right now, and one of the things it talks about is planning a content schedule that will crush your goals. Do I want to crush my goals? Hells yeah! I have this template and it says publish twice, two weeks apart to get started, and then of course, build momentum from there. If you haven’t figured it out yet, this post is a random act of writing, and if you read this. KUDOS to you! I’m testing out my mad marketing skills and I’m wondering how many people have read this post? Laughed, or thought, “geesh, I just wasted x amount of time reading gobbly gook.
Thanks for reading my gobbly gook!
So I am not really sure how everything in Artic Bound will work. Its pulling together nicely and the scenes are literally pouring out of me. I know there are holes and I will go back and fix it. I think that a project this emotional will take a while to be truly completed. I can’t mark a deadline, but I will reach the 50k for NaNo purposes. I am thinking the book will be longer than that. But at this particular moment its about the writing and meeting a goal/deadline. So its still pretty exciting. Today will be filled with revisons on another project and then later on this evening I will get down and dirty with Victor and Nerina. Till then……
Since the beginning of November, I have been writing like a mad woman. Yes I’m doing NaNo and, yes I love it! It really helps especially when you have a great net of friends to catch you when your falling. When I decided to work on my series Blood Moon, I really didn’t know where I wanted to start. Occasionally I would get these quick rants of dialogue in my head. The charters screaming at me in unison. “I’m here right here!”
I don’t know if anyone can hear their characters and the internal dialogue that goes on inside ‘their’ heads. I personally can’t speak for anyone but myself, but the more I ignored them and the closer November approached, I was constantly fighting them. My husband thinks its hilarious! I could be in the kitchen and then all of a sudden, I am rushing for a napkin or piece of paper, anything to get the dialogue out of my brain. Do I need to seek counsel? Absolutely! But only because I can become bitchy and moody. I wouldn’t be normal if it wasn’t for my everyday rituals. The journey writing the two main charaters, has been tedious and draining.
There are moments when I want to turn off the computer or hit the delete button, but sadly Nerina my heroine won’t let me. Sometimes she’s totally nice about it and other times she can be a pain in my head. So I decided that the only way to truly complete the journey is two interview my hero and my heroine, out loud of course and in this blog. So all three of us have agreed that a great time to meet will be during the holidays. As I will have time to sit and get to know them better and they will have time as well, since they won’t be appearing on my pages that day! Yeah for me…..at least I hope it will be a good thing. Will see.
Hope you will stop by to join me. I know I am super strange and well that’s okay. I write Paranormal Romance and Erotic Fiction so I am able to be a little of base. Till then.
