I had to work today. Tomorrow too. You know, that real work crap. That stuff that isn't any fun and takes forever but gives you 2 nickels to rub together. Sometimes.
Then there is the real work I want to do. The writing work. But, I have to do the first work to get to the second work. Arrg!
It's important to take a break from writing too, I know that. Don't want to burn out.
If only I was on an amazing roll that I needed to take a break from...if only!
I was discussing with my 'editor', aka Suz, some of my Caine story. I was telling her how I had all these scenes planned out in my head and they were so easy to imagine about but were going to be so much harder to write.
And I say to myself...What the hell was I thinking? What do I know about battle scenes? How do I coordinate all these people? How do I write this so that its believable?
But, for one of the first times while I have been writing (for too many years to count) I really want to get into the nitty gritty of it.
I want to write about the fur flying and blood spattering. I want the magic to spin out of control and the death toll to be high. I want to write about fangs and pain and sex.
Sheesh. Maybe I do need a break.
Still interested in book suggestions if you have any. Really just trying not to write what has already been written but I also enjoy the stories. Werewolf or werewolf/vampire. I would say that I have read the major authors but I know there are others out there.
