This weekend after I return Dark Chances FLEs I hope to get a chapter of Lukewarm Psyche to Mari. :) I'm sure she's recovered from RT and ready to get back to work.

I plan to go through three chapters of Law's Deliverance. I'm down to 9 or 10 chapters that need my creative touch-ups.

I've two synopses to write. Sigh. One will be easy since the story is done. The other more difficult. I'm so not a plotter. And I learned at RT why. I need to tell myself the story as I write. I wish I could recall which author I heard that from. I believe it was in one of the vampire workshops. Rarely does a synopsis turn out exactly like a story if written beforehand.

Riptide Love...mercy (once I bribed Miller to be quiet enough so I could hear anyone else) what a time I had with Ethan's tale! I shall never ever try to manipulate another story- not ever. Far too time consuming.

For weeks I struggled over Riptide Love in my mind. I'd sit down and try to write it and be left blank blinking where this story was going. After the first chapter I worked on other story ideas thinking Ethan would come around...But nooo…

Finally- realizing my wants didn't matter -I sat down and said "fine tell me what you all want me to hear." Mercy...did (the very handsome) Ethan smirk at me over getting his way. In the end, I wrote Riptide Love in three days. And layered it in another two.

(((((((((((((((Mechele))))))))))))))))))) Thank you so much for all your fabulous critiques. You’ll always such a great help! And thank you for threatening me. Really no more binge writing. Goals, baby, goals!

Until later~
