Random Thoughts

Have you ever wondered what would happen if a writer suddenly just stopped writing?

I've always loved reading and writing. I've enjoyed the works of other authors and been anxious and chomping at the bit for the next book. In all my decades of readership I have been aware of the time and effort authors put into their novels and stories, and while I've hoped and prayed each of my favorites wrote faster, I understood that great stories required time. When one of my favorite authors retired or simply quit writing, I could whine and cry and gnash my teeth with the best of them...but I don't think I truly understood how those authors might have felt.

Until now.

I've never expected the ideas in my head would stall on the pathway to my fingers. The characters are still talking, although in only fits and starts. The information simply isn't making it onto the page. I try to write it down, and it doesn't happen. I read books on the writing craft, I watch films to break the stories down, and analyze the character development.

But the words don't come -- but they will come back. I know they will.

I just have to be patient. Just like I was patient all those years ago waiting for my favorite authors' next books.

And I've never been very patient.

Yet, I am very thankful I have dedicated readers with more patience than me.

Sex Scene Championship

I know, I know, I've neglected this blog for so long it's a miracle anyone comes around any more.

If you do stop by today and you do see this, go check out an excerpt from Rogue Master (no, it isn't out yet...still fighting the big, bad dom Rick) at Scorching Reviews. A scene between Rick and Becka is part of the Sex Scene Championship.

Have to run...I'll try to post again soon.

It's Over...The Blog Tour That Is!

Today is the last day of my Diablo Blanco Club blog tour and I'm both relieved and excited and maybe even a little depressed. I've had a wonderful time stopping by the various blogs every week and reading the comments and questions left by the different visitors.

Sharing Links and Wisdom is my last stop and I'm talking with Emily about one of my favorite books in the Diablo Blanco Club series, Under Control. She's even been nice enough to review Ben's and Vance's story.

Come by and leave a comment and let me know what you think.
Remember to enter the Rafflecotper giveaway...contest ends December 22nd (yes, I extended it. The holidays can be such a whirlwind of activities, I didn't want anyone missing out because of a twenty four hour window.)

Good luck and I hope every one has a wonderful holiday season!

Next to Last Stop on My Blog Tour

Today is the next to last stop on my Diablo Blanco Club blog tour and I'm off the hook!

I have to admit this has been a fun tour, and I've come up with some great ideas based on the different questions I've been asked. At the same time, I'm still very happy not to have to provide an interview or answer questions.

It will be very interesting to see what Snarky Mom Reads has to say about Rite of First Claim.

Stop by and check it out!
