All’s Quiet on the Western Front

And not because I want it to be… nooooo, it is quiet because I have had to severely restrict my son’s computer time, and therefore every time I even look at the computer or laptop, he is right by my side…

I love my son dearly, but I don’t love that I can’t get anything else done, and that makes me grumpy, and grumpy mummy pushes son away who in turn gets separation anxiety and tries harder to reach me… see where this is going?

Today is the first day back at school for term 2, and I can’t WAIT for 8:20am which will occur in just over 20 minutes! Hallelujah!

What also doesn’t help is the muse for the novel I am planning for SoCNoC in June, waking me up at 1am to discuss that he doesn’t want to be a player, but a widower.  But that doesn’t suit my plans.  Man, I have not had an argument with a muse for quite some time.  I can see his point of view, and it adds to the pain, and then the heroine can assume that the pictures he looks at on his phone are his lovers… builds a little more tension I guess.  Now if only he told me how he wants the story to end!

I still have my Novella to finish, and thinking back over the title, it has given me some ideas.  It is called The Gamble, so it can be about taking risks.  The ending is coming together, I like the beginning, but now I need to fill in the middle.  It currently sits at 9k, so needs a fair amount in the middle to really flesh it out.  I really wanted to get this finished in May so I had a clear deck for writing the romance.  Oh well, will have to wait and see.

Best I get going and get the monster out of the house before I explode!

  1. Hope you enjoyed your first day of school being back 🙂 I used to love that day! Sounds like things are ticking along, even if your leading man is giving you some difficulty. Hope he provides you with the ending of his dreams sooner rather than later 😉
