Day 32 – I have been out on this rig for 32 days… I am getting sick of looking at the sea. You know it is getting bad when you get excited because the sea has a slight color change from azure blue to grey blue because it’s raining. Yeah, I’ve been out here THAT long. On the bright side I get to go home in four days, four more days and I’m free for four weeks away from a floating death trap in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico. Suffice to say it’s hardly the best environment to write in if you are trying to get those imaginative juices flowing towards paranormal romance, unless of course I’m dreaming of the new Aquaman coming to kidnap me from the new level of hell I’ve stumbled upon.
Let us please, take a moment and take in Aquaman, hmmmm. Yes please, unlike Batman and Superman, Aquaman, is much improved
Anyway enough about my cabin fever and dreaming about how the hell to get off this noisy rust bucket, preferably with Aquaman… drools
I’ve been busy (when not actually doing my job, not out here for fun you know LOL) going through book two, which I’ve now completed. How on earth I managed to ADD 4,000 words to it when I was trying to clean it up I will never know! I had intended to go right on to Book Three and start reading through it like I did Book Two, but considering I hadn’t really added anything to Book Four in a while I figured I better get back to the writing.
So I managed to add 2,000 words to the beginning of the book, but now I am wondering if perhaps I am starting the book in the wrong way. It follows on directly from the end of Book Three, Wrath and Layla’s book. So if you didn’t read it you won’t really know what is going on, even though I do give some details about what happened in the last book as you have to in series writing. But that is the idea of a series I suppose, you’re supposed to read it in order. I just worry that if someone picks it up not knowing it’s book four and is thrown into the middle like that they will be lost as a goose in a hailstorm! (as my boss likes to say, good ol’ Texan that he is)
Oh well, can’t worry about it right now, I need to write it first then I can worry about it later. Lust/Deus is proving to be harder to write then Wrath/Tanus was. I expected him to be much easier considering how much he bugged me to have his time in the spotlight while I was writing book three. Well that was before… oops, almost gave some of the book away LOL
I ‘m sure once I get going it will all begin to flow as it did with his brothers. Poor Deus has a fight ahead of him, lets put it that way. It will be worth it in the end, after all, the most important things are worth fighting for and hardest to keep, and sometimes you can’t lock them away, sometimes you have to let go and just feel instead of thinking too much.
