I have to say that the last few months have been downright crazy and August is shaping up to be the same.
I've attempted to finish the first draft of Moonbeams, but have yet to do so. Though I am closer to the end than I was two months ago. Shayleah and crew have been flitting in and out of my mind, making it difficult to pin them down to finish the book.
Meanwhile, I feel like my sanity has flown even farther south (I live in Florida) as the two crews Werelove and Jewels have decided to pipe up and demand attention.
Thanks to the suggestion of a fellow author and the gift of a voice recorder from a friend, I've been verbally recording all the scenes that pop up from the two storylines. Werelove is dominating, giving me scenes from books 2 - 4 (in no particular order). Jewels decided to be heard and for the past three nights I've gained four scenes for book 2.
If this is what it feels like having split personalities then I'd like a nice padded room with no interruptions to get everything written, if you please.
On other fronts, I decided to celebrate the six-months anniversary of my debut novel, Jewels, this month, with a week-long contest. If you'd like more details, just click on the banner below.
Dusk Conspiracy, the first book in my Werelove series, has been getting steady reviews. You can read them here.
FUN FACT: When I feel a writing binge coming on, I tend to snack on Peanut Butter Fudge No Bake Cookies from Wal-mart, Reece's Cups, and Water. Occasionally I binge on Lay's chips of several varieties too.
What can I say, I'm a snack food junkie.
