Going strong

Things are going well with this book. I’ve added several interesting plot points to the story giving it a unique flavor, and the characters are developing rather well, some better than I planned. As it stands, I have about two thirds of the first draft penned down. =) One thing though, I’ve been calling it a paranormal fantasy, but now I think it’s more a contemporary one. There is romance in it, but that’s not what’s driving the story or the characters. Then again, the book is not finished, and the romance is intensifying as the story progresses. Oh well, I’ll figure it out when it’s done.

Dieting sucks!

I have been struggling with my weight recently (Yep, I’ve gotten chubby, and I don’t like it!) and decided it was time to put myself on a diet.
It’s the same diet I’ve said I was starting last week…you know, the one I was supposed to be on last month. Actually, it’s the New Year diet. :-/

Now how am I going to write love scenes if I’m chocolate depraved? Dieting sucks!

Halfway there

Since I’ve reworked the storyline of my paranormal fantasy, this novel has been progressing at a good clip. As a result, I just reached the halfway point, the middle of the book. Woo hoo! Well, it’s an approximate middle because I never really know how many pages a story will run until I finish it. Feels right though. The chemistry between the characters is growing, and the tension in the plot is increasing. Love it! I have a lot of cool scenes coming, and I can’t wait to write them. As you can tell, right now I’m in the midst of first draft euphoria. I best enjoy it now because once revision starts the fun’s over…well, not totally but pretty much.

On a different note, yesterday was my birthday, so for lunch I had two of my favorite foods, lobster and blood pudding. I know. I’m weird. =)
