I think I have a small problem. :) Some of the feedback I've gotten regarding Thirst sounds like a lot of people seem to think it's PnR. Or at least expect it to be. Erm, whoops. I'm not a HEA kind of writer and I never intended Thirst to be anything close to romance. The bigger whoops here is that I'm working on the sequel during ROW80 and I cannot get the romance thing out of my head. I keep looking at every sentence differently - which is sooooo not productive. My update is not much to update, basically. :)
I've been trying not to force the word count so I've put more effort into editing. Bloody hell. The kids are like my little shadows this week. I ended up taking my ereader into the bath to try and edit (touchscreen is the best invention ever) but that didn't last long. Every two minutes the eldest was knocking on the door to boast about learning another "tricky word" (senior infants homework stylee) and then I could hear the baby giving my OH grief so I gave up. I fell asleep early last night but then I woke up at around three and got about two hours editing done so I'm happy with that. The baby is still asleep and the twins are amusing themselves so after this post I'm going to try and get something else done.
So mid-week update - very little in the way of actual word count on Taunt, edited a moderate amount of cringey cheese from Verity but most importantly I made an effort to work each day so overall I'm quite happy. I've gotten past the forcing myself stage and I'm just getting on with it and trying not to get frustrated when everything else gets in the way. Hope everyone else is feeling good about their goals. :)
