There are a number of things happening today, not the least of which is finally getting to this blog post. I was going to start writing about eight; it’s now ten-thirty, and I have only myself to blame. Part of it is due to looking at bad book covers. Part of is due to being pulled away by every shiny thing that happens to cross my path. Part of it is that it’s sticky outside today, and I feel it in my writing space.
But I’m here now. All Hail the Great One!
When I crawled out of bed today I had Fantasies in Harmonie on my mind, because my life is pretty much like that. No one else in bed with me, so wake up with my story. Last night I finished all the sexy encounters that happened in the aftermath of one big event, so all that is left is to have the girls say goodbye and close it out, just as a story should.
While putting the story together in Scrivener I set up the chapters and gave each a little tag, as I always do. For my last part, Part Four, where I am now, I had two chapters: one of goodbyes, and one of followups. And while getting up today, I thought about the writing I had ahead of me and went, “I don’t need that last chapter. It’s going to take away from the story and and end up becoming superfluous.”
Which means the last chapter is dead. Something I was going to do in the old last chapter gets done in the new last chapter, and that’s that. End of story, write “The End”, move onto the next project, my Fantasies are over. Sit on my twenty thousand words of erotica, it it later, and submit it to the big smut stand on the Internet.
Speaking of what’s next . . .
I’m off to camp again: Camp NaNo July, that is. I’ve already sent out my notices about who I want in my cabin, and I’m getting stuff ready for smores for those moments at night when we’re not writing. It’s going to be fun, I tell ya–fun!
Then again, I have to come up with something to write in the next few weeks, don’t I?
I’ve a few ideas that I could do, all of which sound like–here it comes, I’m going to say it . . . novels. I have lots of ideas that could be turned into novels, but if I write a novel now, does that mean I’ll be able to write another novel come November and the Big Party? I even had another one pop up this morning and I need to get it written down before my mind completely spaces away.
I also have one particular story I could do that would make this a great Camp NaNo. I’ve even been nudged in that direction by someone who knows me well, and knows the sort of stuff I write. They even had a couple of words of inspiration for me: “Two witches”.
Hot lesbian witches . . . wait, sorry: I’m not Charlie Sheen.
I need to get this erotica behind me today. Then I can get my witch’s hat on and start thinking right.
