Hello my lovelies!
I wish I could tell you I returned refreshed and invigorated from my travels, but sadly, I cannot. My relaxed state lasted about twelve hours and then I was right back in the same stressful situations I was before vacation. But on the plus side, my husband and I did have a lovely time celebrating our wedding anniversary at the happiest place on earth: Walt Disney World.
Here are some facts that we need to accept as we move forward:
1. I cannot keep up with the frantic pace of writing I had done for much of the last few months. As much as I love writing these stories, it’s killing me trying to keep them all updated. I wish I could tell you that I will update all of your favorites every week, but I think I am only going to focus on three at most at a given time. Which segues nicely….
2. I have no interest in writing The Choices We Make. As much as I love A Different Life, as do many of you since that is what led a lot of you to me, I do not have the same passion for its sequel. When I started writing ADL, I never saw it as having a sequel. I was perfectly happy ending the story where I did. But I did something that Hollywood is often guilty of; I wrote a sequel because the public demanded it. I know what I want to do with The Choices We Make, I know exactly how I see it ending; I have an outline and everything to get me from Point A to Point B. The problem is that the words do not want to come out. I started the next chapter of this story more than a month ago, and I cannot get any inspiration to write it. I will finish this…..eventually, but I am pulling it out of the rotation of stories I will be updating.
3. With the year-end approaching and the holiday season upon us, posting will be nearly non-existent in the month of December. This month my wonderful beta kleannhouse will be taking a much deserved vacation. I know I can post chapters without her review; hell I used to do it all the time. But I like having a second pair of eyes look at my stuff and catch all the little mistakes my ducking autocorrect likes to make when I type stuff on my phone. Furthermore, her comments are absolutely hysterical when she betas something. I wish I could post the comments she included for this update of A Queen’s Command. Then again, maybe not. You would get some truly awful songs stuck in your head. 🙂
4. I will be focusing on (in this order): Hanging in the Balance, Life in the Fast Lane, A Queen’s Command/Deception, and maybe The Boss if I’m feeling smutty. But lately, the brain I share with Queen of Area Five has her getting all the smutty ideas and me getting all the devious ones.
My dear friends, I adore you all for taking the time to read my stories and leave me your comments. But I am fucking tired … I now understand why so many stories end up abandoned. It’s an easy thing to start something; completely different thing to finish it. Bare with me, I WILL finish all of my stories; I just may need more time than I thought to do it.
Here are this week’s updates:
A Queen’s Command – It’s in the Blood
Hanging in the Balance – When a Stranger Comes Knocking
Life in the Fast Lane – Hard Luck
