14,000 / 62,000
So before I start back on my second draft of Stripped, I’ve spent the last two days on Wolf Unbound and gotten a lot done. Last night I laid out part of the “issue” that Ben and Tegan will have to get past and it’s something that happened in Enforcer and also came up in Tri Mates. Oh and the werewolf mafia is back. I freaking love the werewolf mafia.
Of course my two year old, who has gone from high spirited child to utter evil monster in the last week and a half, decided that sleep was for suckers and refused to go down until after midnight last night. My husband and I traded shifts. Honestly, she’s working my last nerve and I went through this with the older kids and I absolutely hated 2 and 3 for this reason. Anyway, the 5 year old woke up the whole house at 6:45 by declaring that his cough was worse at the top of his lungs. Yep, he’s sick, but not that sick. It’s that crap they all get when they start school for the first time. Which means I’m going to get sick and my monster toddler will get it. Sigh. There are days I wish that children were like birds and I could just toss a blanket over their heads and they’d go to sleep. That would be awesome!
I did get about 150 pages into the new Linda Howard last night after I gave up on writing. I’ll talk about it when I’m done. I’m a little put off by the recitation of the twins inability to say their “r” sounds, I think it’s been established and we should move on. But at the same time, it’s LH and I adore her and I am less bugged by it than I would if just about anyone else on the planet did it. And I like that she writes children into her books and makes them real characters. So few authors do that well, the kid is introduced to make the reader feel the heroine is maternal but you never hear about them again and she has all sorts of time to date and have sex and go to lunch with her girlfriends. Who are these people? So thank you LH for writing real mothers.

I hope your last nerve is still intact. Sounds like you’re still managing to get a lot of writing done. Your blanket/bird comment made me grin. Wouldn’t that be great? 😀

It would rock my world, LOL!
I have gotten a lot of writing done lately and I feel quite like the end of summer has brought a nice creative influx into my life.
