LIVING IN EDEN is plugging along, even though the doubt weasels are in high gear with this book. Their voices must be giving out for how much they’ve been talking to me. Every line I write they’re saying I should rethink it or do something different, etcetera, etcetera. I’m trying not to listen, but it’s hard. Writing fast is the best way around this, so that’s what I’m trying to do. I’m writing a good chunk every day plus going back over it and doing an immediate polish on what I’ve written. Hopefully that will make this a nice clean draft to give my beta-readers in a few weeks.

I’m mostly concerned with pacing. I feel like the first half of this book is a whole lot of world intro and establishing stuff before we get to the major action. But these are things I can’t worry about now and can be fixed in the second draft. Besides, it’s possible it’s all in my mind and it reads just fine. You’d think after writing a dozen books the process would get easier, but it doesn’t. SOme books are hard writes and some are easy. As long as you get to the finish line, that’s all that counts.

And I have this other book, hereby known as SC, which is my YA contemporary, that’s itching to be written. It’s all shiny and seductive. I’m jotting down notes, but that’s all the time I’m giving it right now. I am not a multi-tasker.

Okay….lunch with a friend, and then back to the keyboard. And I think I’m shutting off the Internet this afternoon. The weasels love using that to distract me. Stupid weasels.

    Uh, I was thinking…maybe we could obsess about Twilight for a little bit longer?

    Aside from my Twilight disorder, I’m ordering a book of yours from Amazon. I’m interested to read your take on Vampires. If it’s about a vampire, it has gotta be good. v–v Tabitha

    My Twilight obsession got a stern look from a friend the other day (as I was buying the Edward/Bella poster) so I think I should put a lid on it for now. However, I think each blog post I do will have a pic of RPattz for a while.

    Hope you enjoy my book. :-)= I’ve loved vampires long before I ever discovered Edward Cullen.

    Hi there. -Just hanging-out on your site, again. I read down at the bottom and realized that you’re on Team Jacob…hmph. Okay, I was willing to share Edward with you but if you prefer dogs, then I’ll just have to keep Edward to myself.LOL I might have good news for you. I was watching My Own Worst Enemy last Monday night, and I really believe that the Jacob character plays the son on that show. It was fun to see him, but I wasn’t interested enough to research it. -Just thought you might be interested.

    Oh, I know. And I’m not Team Jacob until New Moon. I have to say the actor who played Jacob in Twilight is too young and innocent looking to play Jacob further on in the series, so we’ll see what happens.

    I’m too Edward-centric at the moment to debate my Team Jacob love. :) Maybe I’m Team Switzerland now.
