You know it’s going to be a long day when you finally wake up to the alarm…and realize it’s been going off for four minutes.
This morning’s D&E was sporadic at best. I got up slightly late. The family had to be up earlier than usual, and since Mom = official timekeeper and wake-up call, I had to stop every 15 mins or so to make sure they were up. I got involved in writing between wake-up calls, so I actually got That Man up 10 mins late. Oops. Then I made the mistake of checking on my blog post – I’m over at Here Be Magic today talking about Barbarians Do It Doggie Style (in reference to Game of Thrones!) – and then I got involved in Twitter.
All classic mistakes during D&E. I shouldn’t have even opened an IE window.
So while my daily count may look respectable, it’s actually padded by 500 words I got last night and didn’t report. *sheepish* As I said yesterday, I’m in a BIG sex scene – the first big fully explicit on page in the “real” world scene – and it’s slow going. Writing good, interesting, non-skippable sex scenes is hard work, let me tell you. I might have to skip ahead and get some of the action scenes done, and then come back, because I’m tired. (More tired than the characters, evidently.)
He sighed, his arms tightening about me. “There’s always great danger whenever I return to your earth. A purpose awaits me. Beware until I’m at your side. You reek of my magic to anyone who can sense it.”
Darkness tried to claim me. I fought that slow slide to loneliness, even though it was a losing battle. Anguished, I cried out, straining to stay with him.
“Remember,” his voice echoed inside my head like thunder. “I come again as called, but this time, I come for you.”
