I have the attention span of a fiour month old puppy. In other words, short. Every day, I sit down to write and I periodically have to break up the words with something else - checking Facebook or playing Solitaire. Or writing this blog. Sigh.
Sometimes I get up and pace - thinking about what comes next, since I'm not much of a plotter. This book (The Wolf Prince) I'm working on now is going to be my longest Nocturne ever and I'm having a bit of a problem figuring out the pacing. I'm used to shorter books, I guess. On the plus side, I'm going into much more characterization. On the down side, I'm not sure if I'm doing too much! So far I have not only the hero and the heroine's point of view, but a secondary set of characters - the heroine's sister and the villain. I haven't done that since I wrote the Fae books for Leisure. It's fun and scary at the same time.
We writers are a neurotic lot. Never sure if the words are right or the story is moving along at the correct pace. I'm no different, but I guess I'll see once I get halfway through. I should hit 40,000 words by the end of December, which is the halfway point.
In the meantime, I'll just keep writing!
