Jumbled Thoughts

Today has been one of those days when I have not been able to focus on anything.  Well, maybe that's a lie.  I have been thinking about my book and the next scene that I need to write.  I'm just trying to get other things done before sitting down to write later this evening.  Right now, I think I have maybe two days at most to write before this book is done, so can you blame me for being excited? 

The most random thing that has happened this week has been the fact that I dreamed about my characters the other night!  No joke!  I think maybe they have taken over my life!  

I think I may like this one better than the first. Is it bad to pick favorites? Or maybe that's just how I feel until I started editing it.  Not sure yet.

Wednesday Randoms

  • When did this become my life?
  • I love that it took me several years to finish my first book, but less than a year before I feel like I might be almost done with the second one.
  • As I'm getting close to the end, I think I might throw one more twist in there. I mean, it would make the ending, which I love, worth it.
  • I really didn't plan on introducing a new character this far in, but I think it only makes sense.
  • How does "The Past" sound as a title? (Miles' past is called into question by an old "friend".)

Book Ramblings

There was a time when I would post something on a regular basis, but not recently...I have really slacked off. Right now, my life consists of vacation research, writing and deciding if I really want to deal with real people. Okay, maybe not the last one.

~ I really do feel bad for putting my characters in the situations that I do, but it usually makes for a really good story.

~ The villain in my first book was hard to write, but this new one is even harder. This guy is someone that I would never want to piss off and later run into by myself in a dark alley.

~ I jumped ahead and wrote the ending. I like it, but I think something might be missing. How do you think it should end?

~ This villain is insane! (I had this sudden urge to mention that again)

~ These characters are so exhausting!

~ The research for this book has been insane and I'm pretty sure looking up different types of bombs is probably frowned upon or what types of injuries a person can suffer from. You should have seen the look on my parents face when I asked about the injuries. Lol

~ Skipping a day of writing is almost not even allowed. It's like these characters want their story told, no matter the cost.

~ I think I may need a new writing spot or at least a second option.

I know this is a lot of rambling, but this is nothing compared to the thoughts swirling around my head!
