I finally finished writing that sex scene in Deep Embrace. It ended up being a bit over ten pages long (not the actual sex bit there was alot of talking leading up to it) I spent a few weeks on the love making scene and then suddenly, the other night, I wrote the rest of it in a big finish! It just came rushing out of me! LOL I'm glad its done. I'm a little over 23,000 words into the whole book now. Deep Embrace will be the last novella I will be doing for a while. I'm going to switch back to novels next year. I hate the period between projects when I'm editing or world building or writing outlines. I get so irritable and bored. Having to write an outline for a whole novel will exhaust me. I can see why some writers just dive in and start without a second thought. I'm not a fan of doing too much planning but I'm sensible enough to know its worth it. I've had too many novels go rearing off track in a completely different direction in the past....hello Atlantis Reborn...weren't you a bloody waste of time?
I had a great Christmas. I got heaps of wonderful new books to read and DVDs to watch. I've been a bit bored these past few days being stuck at home alone. I've actually found that going to work is good for my writing. I'm usually so bored there all I can think about is my writing so when I get home I'm full of ideas.
It's going to be a big year for me in 2011. In a few days I'll be able to say that I am getting married this year!! And Jaylani wants us to try for a baby real soon after the wedding so who knows what little surprises might come next christmas!
It's going to be a very exciting year. I'm going to continue to try and find a publisher for Echoes, I want to finish Deep Embrace and start a new novel, and finish planning my wedding and honeymoon. I'm finally going to be able to see Japan!! I hope I can find some awesome Sailor Moon things or nice art to bring home. I love Asian art. Some prints for the walls would be great!
