Vicki is still a slow slog. I’m too tired to dream, which does tend to complicate “dream writing.” However, I know the next few scenes already. It’s just a matter of getting through them.
Mostly, I’m just tired, with the time change and Evil Day Job fun and edits and spring break just around the corner for the monsters. We’re taking a few days to spend a long weekend in Branson like we did last year, which means getting the dog to the vet. Pepper needs a few shots or the kennel won’t take him. Crazy details like that are trying to fill up my brain.
However, I did get a new theme song for this book (which explains the title of this post, a song by Lady Antebellum). Vicki definitely can’t take her eyes off Jesse, even though he’s complicating everything. That song led to Need You Now, which explains more of Elias and Vicki’s relationship.
So I’m getting tons of ideas. Just not having enough brain power left to see significant gains when I finally sit down to write. I’ve been hoping to break 30K for two weeks and I’m still nowhere close.
All of you waiting on packages: sorry, I haven’t made it to the post office yet. The good news is I have a BOX of Dear Sir, I’m Yours coming, so I’ll be able to give away and mail many more than I originally planned. Hopefully I’ll make it in the next day or two.
Oh, and I’ve had TWO new ideas in the past two days. *groans* Last thing in the world I need right now. That’s what the little black book is for, I guess. I jotted a few notes and I’m hoping they leave me the hell alone for awhile.
Stay tuned for MayNoWriMo details. I’m thinking around mid-to-late April I’ll open the yahoo group so people can have plenty of time to join and refine their goals. I will be giving away at least a writing craft book (winner’s choice up to reasonable $) and Deena is sponsoring a critique. I’m also thinking about some other goodies, but I’ll have to see how everything unfolds.
I need to finish Vicki first, though, so I’d better get cracking!

Well, I’ve only had ONE new idea, but I did have an idea that will completely revamp an existing story. So I guess we’re even on that. I won’t write mine (yet) if you don’t write yours! 😛
But you do need to get cracking. So do I, for that matter, but we’re not talking about me right now… 😆
Nicole, it’s a deal! I’m not working on anything but Vicki (unless I get revisions from my editors of coruse).
