Writing update

I just realised it's been a while since I mentioned my writing (well okay so it's been ages since I mentioned my writing...!) and this may have something to do with the fact that I haven't been doing a great deal of it just lately. Oops.

Partly it's because I'm waiting to hear back from various agents, and party it's because my motivation has kind of hit the skids lately. But that aside, I'm still very much in love with my wip and am determined to get it finished before Christmas.

I know where it's going (mostly) although I do have problems with the dead body. I always knew I should've steered well clear of that aspect, but what can you do? I'm just the writer. It's not like I can control these things (I can hear you howling with laughter there, Sara!!)

And speaking of control. What's with this blinking dead body suddenly phoning my heroine?? It would make sense if I was writing a paranormal but alas, there's not a vampire in sight!!

What you mean to say you don't normally have dead bodies??? I luv dead bodies in my books and sprinkle them liberally. the one I'm working on has two ;)

Good luck with the agent subs etc. I'm actually going through a good spell at the moment. I think the holiday did me good. I'll send some writing vibes your way. Actually a suggestion - Alison Kent is doing her Sweat for Sven again. You could try that to give you a push. A lot of my blogger friends are doing this. I think she has details on her blog.

Now he's phoning????????? You'd better hurry up and get the next bit to me because seeing Cass lose her mind is sort of fun!!!!

Shelley, this is my first foray with dead bodies, and it's not quite going to plan!!! And thanks for the tip re Sweat for Sven. I've just been on Alison's blog, and am girding my loins to put my name down!!

Amanda - hehe. I love making Cass lose her mind too! I'm so evil. (I just hope I don't lose my own mind during the process...)

Dead bodies are fun. It's what to do after you kill somebody off that confuses me.

I just re-read that. I mean fiction, in my books, not real life.

Christina Phillips said...

Mel, too funny! That is EXACTLY my problem!
