I haz a happy! and a nervous.

Wow, I'm neglecting this blog already. Bad me.

I've been working pretty steadily on Touch, and am quite pleased with how things are going on it! I'm probably the worlds slowest writer, so adding a couple of thousand words over the past week is really good for me. I'm feeling more confident with the dialogue, which I struggled with for quite a while, and my segues into the different parts of the story are meshing much better. Flow is so important for a smooth reading story, IMO. So, yay for happys!

In the meantime, RD is having a We All Win workshop, which is a round-robin critique. I anonymously enter up to 3 snips of 1,000 words each, and in exchange of having folks crit them (aka publicly shred my self-confidence) I crit 6 other snips. At the end of the month, I can claim my snips.

I picked a section from Touch, DiD and Karma. They're such completely different stories that I doubt anyone will connect them, so MAYBE I'll just claim the best received one? LOL


I'm looking forward to having opinions on what's good an bad about each of the stories... although, I get almost sick to my stomach the first couple of read throughs... sometimes, what's being pointed out is SO OBVIOUS that I'm utterly humiliated that I hadn't picked up on it before.

You know me, Miss Perfection.

So, that's the nervous part. I'm hoping I don't get laughed off the forum.

Wish me luck!


In the meantime, I've been reading up a storm with my new eReader. Inez Kelley's Salome at Sunrise was beautifully written, and such a fabulous story. *insert song of joy* <- that's me singing it's praises!

I'm also eating up Kate Pearce's Simply series. Whoa, hawt. hothothothot. Not for the faint of heart, though. You've gots to like menage and some m/m.

Disappointed with Lora Leigh's Breeds series. They're meh IMO.

I've also read Gena Showalter's The Darkest Passion - I found the heroine not to my liking so the story didn't jive well with me. I'm reading her latest The Darkest Lie now, but just started. I can only hope that Scarlet doesn't annoy the snot out of me like Olivia.
