My friend Cedric issued a challenge to sum up my three books in haiku, so here it is:
Teen girl, easy life.
Shit hits the fan. People die.
Growing up’s painful.
Heart’s desire reached.
But there’s a complication.
Life is hard choices.
The foe is revealed.
When all you have left is death,
How you die matters.
Yeah, I know I’m behind on “Vampire Lawyers” again. I have a vague idea floating around in my head, but I haven’t sat down and forced it to gel. I’ve actually *gasp* been taking a break from writing for the last several days! I can’t afford a real vacation from work, but I can at least take a break from my second job.
…Just in time to try and tame the mess in the house. I think most writers must have messy, disorganized houses (unless they can afford a housekeeper). You just don’t have time to clean when there’s so much reading and writing to be done. (This may be why my two lead protagonists are neat-freaks: living vicariously!)
On a side note, I was in a local shop today, and I’ve already picked out the antique furniture and Victorian prints that I want in my writer’s cottage. Now, besides needing the cottage, I need $1,000 to drop on the furnishings.
