Awaiting Edits and Writing

I was anxiously awaiting edits this weekend, and to distract myself I finished my taxes. So at least it was productive, even if my edits didn’t come in yet. I’m eager to get them, but I totally understand when life goes crazy and you just can’t hit that deadline.

In happier news, I have a new project started. There’s an open call for tattooed characters that I’m seriously tempted by…but who wouldn’t be?

I don’t know if my idea is quite along the lines of what they’re looking for–they seem to want a character who is a tattoo artist or covered in tattoos. My character LOVES tattoos, but doesn’t have any himself. However, the love interest is a tattooist, so I’m hoping that counts. The story opens at a tattoo convention too…oh hey, does this mean I have an excuse to go to one of those? Twist my arm…

This story also seems primed as a series, with it spreading out to include the customers of the tattoo shop–I have a few ideas–but I won’t be counting chickens. Finish the¬†first one and then we’ll see how it goes.

Just a short update today, but I wanted to let you know the fires are burning!

There were definite benefits to dating a physical therapist. He was great with his hands, and not just when Blake’s leg ached.¬†

I think I’m over-saturated on writing sexy scenes right now. I have several scenes laid out that just need scene around them. But today I’m just flat lining. I’ve done plenty of writing this week, so that’s super exciting and good, so I’m not worried.

I just happen to have free time, so I want to be writing, but sometimes you have to listen to the little voice in your head that’s saying “Maybe take a break now. Yeah. Pick it up again tomorrow.”

The tough thing is when I want to write, I just don’t know what to write. I’m sort of feeling that at the moment, but when writing the complicated bits of sewing scenes together, you can’t just write willy nilly. So we’ll see what tomorrow brings!
