For the past two weeks and especially this weekend, I’ve been working on a short story for class. I think I finally finished it. It’s called “Moonlighting” and it’s about a thief, Alexandra, who is pursued by Tristan – an agent of INTERPOL – who is obsessed with capturing her. But, along the way he became more obsessed with her than with capturing her.
I had fun with it, even if at times it felt like pulling teeth because they were being so uncooperative. Eventually I got into, but of course, I had more fun in Tristan’s POV. Maybe I’ll post it on FP and see what everyone else thinks about it. I don’t know if I want to post it now or wait until the professor grades it to include his revisions. Or, maybe I’ll post it…and the fix it later? I don’t know. Honestly, I’m just happy it’s over. I like writing, but for some reason when it comes to academic writing….it’s a drag.
I haven’t written a word for Will, Sophia, Devon or Rachel since the semester started. How horrible is that? I’ve just had too much work. I did, however, get to read June’s manuscript 🙂
Hopefully, something will come to me for WW. To be honest, it’s close to the end. I’ll probably rush the ending because I’m not happy it and I want to rewrite it. There are SO many changes I want to make. Like…a change of scene. Stick them in the country rather than the city.
I’m going to have an ADD moment or 2…
I was on FB and guess what!!! A bunch of my favorite authors accepted my friend request! Julia Quinn, Suzanne Enoch, Candice Hern, Gena Showalter. AND a few of them actually reply to comments you leave.
2 ADD moment…
New Historical Romance recommendations!
Goddess of the Hunt by Tessa Dare. GOTH was her debut novel and it was awesome. Even though reading it you sometimes forget it’s a regency, it’s still a good read. PLUS, it’s part of a trilogy and if you love drama, you’ll love how the characters are connected.
The second is Surrender of a Siren. I really love her covers too. Her name isn’t bigger than the title and the covers are simple, not explicit. SOAS was fun. I met another Gray ^^_
The third which I’m really excited about (not for the main characters, but because it’s a wrap up of all the characters) A Lady of Persuasion. I’m off to Barnes and Noble tomorrow to pick it up.
You should visit her site: http://tessadare.com/ She even has an article about the fanfic she started out writing before she was published.
(Btw, she accepted me on FB too!)
