I'm back from holidays with a lovely sinus infection, ear infection and strangely enough my eyes are hurting too, plus a boatload of online drama as soon as I walked in the door. I'm trying to just move on but there's still some hurt and self-doubt but rather than dwelling, I thought I'd do a mostly gratuitous post to cheer me up, plus my muse has decided he's too sick to write, too. *pokes him*
WIPs - not the fun part of the post but here's where I'm at on what I'm writing. I obviously have ADHD issues and my muse cannot stick to one idea at a time - I shall learn to train him properly though... soon.
Glitter Fox series - about 15,000 words done on the next part - I've introduced a couple of new characters and decided Rylan and Gage are in for a bumpy ride. There has been and will be sex.
Cowboy Christmas story - No longer a Christmas story since I didn't make the deadline, well to be honest, I didn't try very hard. A week isn't very long especially when you're on holidays with your kids visiting so... I decided not to rush it and it's ended up growing bigger than it was supposed to anyhow. (I do have a problem with that - snickers) It will be the same story that I posted here but without the Christmas slant. Billy-Jo is still all angsty and let's hope Wyatt can do something about that. It's at about 11,000 words and I hope there will be sexy barn sex. lol
Angel series - this isn't much of anything yet - a lot of notes but I know my first angel will be Anael, the Angel of Romance. I'm hoping to do a series about the different angels - I know there's other series out there but everyone writes different, right? I'm an angel-junkie so why not? *shrugs* Yep, you guessed it, there'll be angel sex.
YA story - nothing happening with this one right now but I'm quite inspired by the pic and I think one of the young beauties will be names Ivan. :) Probably just some first kisses and caresses and lots of eye-staring and shyness.
And finally, just when my muse has more than enough to inspire me with - and I partially blame this on the movie I went to last week, he gets this hankering to write some sort of barbarian-type romance. (cue the sexy Jason Momoa "Conan the Barbarian" pic) I have 3,000 words but my character isn't a barbarian but a viking. lol
Do you know how hard it is to find sexy viking pics - there are very few.:(
By the way, I loved the movie - my husband was not so impressed. He said Arnold's version was better *gags a little* because there was less dialogue. Lol - my reply "that's because Arnold can't talk". But I mean come on, only a guy would say Arnold was better than Jason - just look at the man. Okay, maybe that just shows my shallow movie choices and love of *ahem* talented (hot) men sweating and fighting and bleeding and just generally looking masculine and mean - don't get me wrong I love my sensitive, pretty boys too - I guess I just like a wide range of men. *snickers again* The theatre was me, some other women and all the rest were men - those women just didn't know what they were missing. The hair, the pecs (he never wore a shirt in the whole movie - swoons), the arms, the freaking hot "skirt and booties". I was ready to go back and watch him, I mean the movie, again. :P
So yeah, I think I can write some hot, angsty, man-loving vikings without too much violence or bloodshed - maybe just in a you-saved-my-ass-I-love-you way. :)
There you have it - my mostly gratuitous, long-overdue post. If you find any hot viking pics send them my way and if you have anything you'd like to see on this blog, I'm open for suggestions - pics, videos, books, give me a sign.
Oh and I just happened to find a very gratuitous pic of Jason, I mean Conan's butt. :D
That was hard work, my head's aching now and I'm gonna go lie down - peace out everyone. :D
PS - this kind of makes me sound like all I want to write is sex but that's pretty far from the truth - the storyline is where it's at for me and if I can incorporate some intense emotion and heartache, I'll do that - then they'll have sex.
