Building from my post yesterday about wanting to find a good book to read this week, I planned a nice bubble bath, complete with Jocelyn Stover’s OUT OF REACH sitting right next to me. I had every intention of digging into this fantasy based book but low and behold an idea hit me. Typical.
I’ve been working on doing some plotting for a short story that I’ve agreed to do as part of a New Year’s anthology and the idea struck last night with a vengeance. I guess in one way that is a good thing. I wrote just over 1500 words before my water ran cold (yes, I kept a notebook nearby just in case something like this happened) and am now that much closer to completing this project. The problem is that I read the opening line of the book and closed it right back up.
I’m hoping tonight goes better! I’ve got a full day trapped in my writing cave to work on DESOLATE, Book I of the Immortal Rose trilogy so I’m sure I will need a distraction later tonight to rejuvenate.
Thank you to everyone who offered book suggestions. It seems I need to make a lot more time to read in the near future 🙂
