The Parallels

So, I start with a good news update: we are in contract to sell our house! It is all so surprising to us, because we were only on the market for two weeks, and also, the buyer agreed to a final sale price of only $1000 off our list price (which we worried might be…

Guess what I’m researching?

Prom Dresses. heh heh. It’s, unsurprisingly, a lot of fun. Here is a selection of dresses I’m thinking of for Jane. There are only two requirements: expensive and immodest (for reasons which I cannot disclose.)And, lest you think my research is pointless, I assure you, this dress is important. Which one do you like?

Trub

And by that I mean, trouble.That’s what’s coming for Jane. Mwa ha ha ha ha. *grins* I love writing this story. In writing Newy, I have actually learned something about trouble. They say that the action should keep building until the climax, and well, I am learning that that is easier said than done. It…

A goal

Had another showing today. Yeah. So much fun. Only, this time, I had just two and a half hours to get the house ready. sheesh. Oh well, we made it. The house looked fantastic when I left. (It’s already cluttered. Kids. Gotta love it.) Anyway, one very good thing came out of it. I had…

Tease me

Well, I survived my day of house cleaning horrors. There was a breakdown, and a few tears in the eleventh hour, but I somehow pulled it off and was running out the door at 5:30. Seven and a half hours of cleaning, and they probably spent ten minutes in the place before saying, “Okay, let’s…

My Hot Lover

All today, I have been laughing about the post on Natalie’s blog that compares novel writing with love. So true, so true. Newy is definitely my current lover, and we are burning strong. It just feels so good to be with him. Tonight, I hit 23,100k. And then, I emailed the first 120 pages to…
