Ohhhhh, my seductive little pet.... my new little story brewing right along. Yes, we are in the lust stage, my new story and I. Handsome Hubby is all cool with it, as long as I don't abandon my former WiP forever, lol. I told him that she is hibernating. She is a bit more of a beast, in need of research and the working out of complicatednesses. She is high maintenance, very needy of my undivided attention.
My new little darling, she is slick and slippery and sliding right from my pen onto the pages. I wrote 5 pages in the car the other day on the way to my sister in law's house for a family celebration. The car is a good place for me to write - My Type A-ness needs something productive to do whilst I am buckled into a seat for an hour. I swear I have the ADD. Without the H. I'm not hyperactive, I just jump from thing to thing to thing, starting a million things, working on everything a little bit at a time, and finishing it all right down to the wire. I was like that in college, I'm like that with schoolwork and housework and my to-do lists. I try to be as efficient as possible, doing 85 things at once. It's a sickness. What can I say.
But my new story is so much FUN... I was really getting bogged down with the complexities of my WiP and this time of the school year is waaaaaaaay too busy at the Real Job to have literary brain cells when I get home. I'm also purposefully not planning this story out. I have ideas about where it is going, but I am just going to write until I get there. It's very freeing, this open relationship I have with my new hot little number. And it is a little bit spicy, I must say!
Must be the deliciousness of summer approaching. :)
