IWSG: Better Late Than Never

A quick and late IWSG.

I'm struggling with this story. I've taken to writing scenes rather than a complete story because these characters are further from who I am and that's a challenge. A single mom (when I don't have or want kids, what possessed me?) and a middle-aged businessman (of which I am neither).

I'm starting to get that fear. You know the one. Where you think, maybe that was it. Maybe I only had the one book in me and there won't be another good one. I'll be the Vanilla Ice/Blind Melon/Dee-Lite of the romance world and people will say, "What happened after that first crazy book?" and shake their heads.

As you do.

Also I wrote a scene. A great scene. I love it. But the more I'm staring at it, the more I'm wondering if I didn't steal part of it from some other book I read. But I can't put my finger on it. But it feels familiar... dammit writing is hard.

So yeah. That's it. But, I'm still kicking ass at NaNoWriMo, cuz when in doubt... I just write a sex scene. I've already written two. WORD COUNT ACCOMPLISHED, BITCHES.

This is why no one should ever take writing advice from me.

How YOU doin'?


  1. That's why no one wants writing advice from me either!
    You can do it. I don't have kids either, but I managed to include one in my last story. You'll probably do even better with those characters because you'll be trying harder to get it right.

  2. Go girl! I'm on NaNo also name LBCollard if you want to be buddies... Love that you're stretching yourself and taking on a challenge. Keeps life interesting!

  3. LOL As long as you don't follow the same advice on real life ;-) Good luck with NaNo, it sounds like you'll kick ass!

  4. Good luck with NaNoWriMo!
    Hold on to that feisty attitude...it will take you places!


I would love to hear your thoughts. Please comment.
