I am so almost finished LIVING IN EDEN. I’ve worked through my beta-reader comments. I only have one scene I need to rewrite, which is the love scene. Sigh. Don’t know why this one is giving me fits. I don’t want to go Blaze explicit with it, but I want it to be, well, fleshed out and, um, satisfying. There’s no way I can fade to black on this one since it’s kinda vital to the plot. So I’m going to take some time and work through it. I’d drink some wine if I wasn’t on a freaking diet.
(A diet on which I only lost 1.5 lbs the first week, despite sticking to it, since my metabolism is totally shot. Week 2 prescription: more exercise!!).
But after that — I’m all done! I gave this book everything I’ve got and really hope my editor likes it.
I love Eden and Darrak (characters you’ll probably hear a lot about in the next couple of years), but I’m really ready to move on to something new. Like, really.
I seem to be snowbound today. Outside is a blanket of white and I’m not venturing out because I’m a chicken driver.
Tonight is Lost! I can’t even tell you how much I love this show. I still have hope for Kate and Sawyer getting together. I’ve never felt the chemistry between her and Jack.
Other than that, I think I’m going to finish reading Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead today. It’s the third book in the Vampire Academy series. Have you read this series yet? I have a little trouble with it — mostly because it’s so awesome! It fills me with an unhealthy jealousy of her writing and plotting skillz. And her characters are so vivid. Especially Dimitri. I’m a sucker for sexy Russian guys, I guess. And stories about forbidden love. And, you know, vampires.
