Happy 2009 everybody! Today I am celebrating writing over 10,000 words - that's right - forty one pages in Microsoft word. My brain is mush and I am ready to fall into bed and watch Tru TV to numb the pain in my wrists.
Just kidding about the last part, although by tomorrow they should be screaming. Maybe advil tonight? I don't want to think about anything other than reaching my deadline. Feb 1 this baby is due - I've plotted it, thought about it, studied for it and crammed more information on Boadicea (Boudica) and early Briton than I can stand. Go ahead and ask me - I can tell you fighting styles (ditch and dyke) or weapons (spear and sword) and method of transportation (foot, chariot or horse) I can name Goddesses (Andraste, Bridget or Epona) and discuss the housing of pre roman invasion farmers. Yes, they farmed. They lived in round houses with thatched roofs. They loved - just like we did, and that is always the heart of a romance. We can have the plot, but it is no good without the characters - if the characters grab your heart, a loyal reader will follow them through fire. I hope Ela and Os grab at people's hearts like that - they sure have my attention, woo hoooooo.
I am also getting ready for a writer's cruise January 22nd - FRW is conducting their first ever ship conference, and it should be fabulous. I am looking forward to giving my workshop - Shining in a Shrinking Market, and meeting with old friends as well as making new ones.
So far 2009 has been busy, filled with hard work, friends, and quite a few laughs. Okay - we watched Pineapple Express. Freaking hysterical!
I will post after the cruise, with pictures!
Something Wiccan This Way Comes recieved five angels from Fallen Angels reviews - one of many great reviews this second book in the Rhiannon Godfrey series has garnered. If you have a chance go to www.samhainpublishing.com and look up Traci Hall for both of my Young Adult parnormal stories.
Thanks for stopping by!
