The baby is walking. Which means she doesn’t want to sleep lest she miss something.
In any case, I got 2,000 words written in Dark Justice last night. Something snuck in on the alley confrontation scene and it moves the story into a different direction, just a bit, but that’s okay, because it actually creates a nice lead in to the vampire series I want to do. The next vamp book will be with Aidan’s brother and Minx, a member of Kael’s crew.
You know, I love the Postal Service but it distresses me that their songs are selling everything from nailguns to M&Ms on tv these days.
Don’t mind me, I’m just wandering around, not making sense. Have a good Sunday.

You know, I completely understand about something just popping up to take the book in another direction. But you know, sometimes that’s when it’s the most fun to write.
Glad to hear about the baby. I’ve been through it twice. Trust me, you’ll be able to rest at some point. Until then, take down time when you can get it.
Keep writing. I’ll bet that Dark Justice turns out to be one of the best books you’ve ever written!

Ah yes. Walking leads to running and they never stop. LOL one is covering me with a blanket in 90 degree weather right now.
Neat on the new direction. I love it when the characters take it like that and great on the lead in to the vampires. I can’t wait to read vampires again.

Flesa and Mechele – yeah, I’ve got three kiddos, so I’ve done this twice before. She’s worse than my boys were at this age because she wants to be like them and with them. Nothing can stop her, LOL.
Unlike many writers, I don’t write with more than a general idea outline so the story just takes me where it takes me. Which leads to a few frustrating points in every book where I write myself into a corner but that actually gives me time to do some deep thinking and so it’s all a part of the process.
