I’ve been in the zone. On Friday night, I wrote a post for Karl’s Summer of Love. I’d been thinking of something short, cute, and amusing all week. By Friday, I was revved and spit out the post… about common courtesy. *sigh* It was a LOT of words.
Saturday, I wrote just under 7200 words and completed the third part of my trilogy for the Pink Chair Diaries. Nick was flowing. He was talking to me. He was flogging the naked girl in the story. *gasp* I have no clue where Nick’s proclivities came from. I had something altogether different planned for him. But I’m writing and writing and the next thing I knew… he was flogging her with a three foot braided leather single lash. I had to make a mad dash for JR Ward’s message board and send a message to one of her admins who lives with a friend of mine who knows his flogging. Several messages later, I had the info I needed. I totally owe Nath and Darrie now. Nath for putting up with me asking Darrie questions through him, and Darrie for the information I needed. The Whip and the Chair will be up on the PCD site next week.
On Sunday, the second part of my trilogy was now begging to be written. Probably because the arrogant wizard Drake couldn’t handle it that Nick’s story was finished before his. Well, Drake’s story was supposed to be a menage. Of course, that didn’t happen either. I sent Justin a twat and asked him if I could use his name in the story. Justin, being the nice guy that he is, said absolutely. By the end of The Wiz and the Chair, some 6500 words later, Justin Scott had tamed the arrogant wizard Drake. I sent the rough draft to Justin to read. Let’s just say that I think he liked it. It will be posted on the PCD site this week.
Monday was filled with edits and revisions. They took all day. Both pieces needed work. I finished long after it was dark… and then I took two paragraphs I’d started on an emotional Bar post I needed to write and finished the damn thing. I posted it around 10 pm, I think. In it, Lex sits down to talk to her father whom she hadn’t seen since she was six, and who she figured was dead. The two of them trying to connect after so many years was a tough write, but it went easier than I thought.
I easily wrote 15K words this weekend and the reason I’m in the zone is because if I had today off, I would make a significant dent in Dream State, a 25K word piece I’m working on to submit to Liquid Silver for their Quick Silver line. Oh, well. Works calls. And tonight it’s horse racing night. Gotta enter my nags in races for Saturday. So no writing for a couple of days, zone or no zone.
I’ll start catching up on blogs at lunch today. I probably won’t be caught up until Thursday because you people are nuts posting every day! I can’t do that. I have totally missed reading you all though. Oh! And I do thank you all for your comments here and at Karl’s on my Summer of Love post. Adam’s was funny and succinct at the same time. I’ll have to post some gay porn for him over here. An XTube link. I wouldn’t want him to be deprived.
Regarding the Better Than a Hot Blogger Calendar, if you didn’t get into the Hot Blogger Calendar, send me a photo. I don’t care what kind. You could be dancing in your Guinness boxers or wearing a tiara on your head or making guacamole. Something that you think represents you and your blog. No voting here. I’ll make as many calendars as I have photos for. Motley and either her ass or her corset will be May. Just email the photos to winter at winterheart dot com. The higher the res, the better. Stretching stuff makes it all pixelated. Give me a few different months you’d like to be on.
And finally, I missed Marcus yesterday. I was busy and didn’t have time to put him up here. So here’s a lovely photo for today since today is totally our Monday.
After all that writing, that photo is totally how I feel. And since I did so well, I totally deserve a hug!
Have a great Tuesday in the zone!
