I know I have been a super bad blogger lately. I am trying feverishly to finish to Saddle Up. It was supposed to be finished this weekend but I am only about three quarters finished. This was a goal that I imposed upon myself. It probably was unrealistic to begin with, especially taking on the college class at night. But I spent this weekend writing and added three thousand words to it. For once, I've actually mapped out the story, so I know where it is going. I feel really good about it. I just need to finish it. Hopefully I can send it off to my editor by the beginning of February vacation and the start on my Bound trilogy. Keep your fingers crossed.
I do have a funny mother story for you. I went to visit her this weekend and she decided to give me some writing advice. Here it is:
1. I should forget about writing "that sci-fi stuff" because no one is really interested in that type of story. I tried to tell her my new book is set in Ireland but I don't think she was hearing anything I said at the moment.
2. Stop writing erotica. No one wants to hear about every bit of sex explicitly. (Hmm... I don't have a problem with it!)
3. I should write for Harlequin. You haven't made it to my mother if you are not published by Harlequin.
4. I need to put more God in my stories. What she is really saying is that she would be proud of my writing if I wrote Christian inspirational love stories.
Hubby's response: There is God in your stories and it goes like this, "Oh God, oh, God, oh God..."
Where did I come from????
