Detours and hijackings

April 13, 2013 | Real life

Writing erotic romance seems like a fairly safe job. In the age of electronic publishing even paper cuts are no longer a hazard. My only problems are imaginary–the bossy, irresistible hunks camping in my head. Each demanding his story be written now.

A few months ago, after wrapping up the final edits for Dalila’s Choice, I fully intended to get busy on the next mech adventure. I did all the usual obsessed writer ritual type things: created a playlist, labeled a notebook, found images of the cast, made lots of notes about the characters, and actually began writing the story. A few pages in a contemporary couple staged a coup.

I tried to ignore them. The lure of the better idea is an eternal plague. If I give in to these whims I’d never finish a book. But this couple wouldn’t quit. They hijacked my imagination. At the halfway point, where I expect the excruciating pace of writing to pick up a bit, they grew sullen and silent. Even at this torturous rate, I’m hoping to finish the story in June and finally get back to the patient mechs, who are probably not speaking to me. :sad:

    Some characters are so pushy.

    You’re right, Allie. I think they’re holding a grudge too :lol:
