Stuck

So, while I query away, I figured I’d work on Hel on Earth–after all, reincarnated Vikings, what’s not to like? I’d even gotten about 25k in, which is a fairly substantial dent…however the problem arose that I just haven’t been feeling it. I love urban fantasy with all my heart, but it just wasn’t jiving with where my head’s been recently (which is all over the place, thanks for asking :P).

Hence what led me to start a new project. Now, I normally don’t do this. If I commit to a novel length manuscript, I stick with it. However, right now I’m just really jonesin for a slick talkin’ hellion of a main character. I want to write another Aries girl, maybe because I want to go back to my roots and stop exploring other perspectives. I want to live a little in my own comfort zone.

And so, a couple months back I had a cool concept for a novel, one that I just started jumping off from. I can feel it in my veins, there’s a story in there, jittery and anxious to be let out of its cage. I want to write a hell on wheels girl who’s bigger than life and brimming with confidence. I want to write a mysterious, dangerous guy who presses her buttons in the right way to temper that confidence with smarts. To teach her a little humility before building her into something greater.

Let’s be honest. Aries LOVE danger. I will fall head over heels for the guy in a story who whisks you along on the adventure of your life. (No wonder Doctor Who’s so popular) So I’m taking a breath away from my emotionally explorative Viking tale to head back to the land of bold, reckless decision-making, life-threatening battles, and getting swept away with passion, whether it be the fumble in the bedroom kind, of the shared mischief when throwing yourself into a risk.

So, in honor of all that, I #amwriting.

“A hundred years had passed since their return. Since the day the Tuatha de Danaan appeared and decided they wanted their land back. It had been a hundred years since the war began, but today was the day I would join in the fight.”

I split my time writing and working my day job as a massage therapist. If it’s a creative pursuit though, chances are I’ve dabbled in it. Hell, I’ve played around with soapmaking, beer brewing, cupcake baking, tea blending and everything else under the midday sun. At the end of the day, my constant is always reading, writing and editing. I’m an Aries-Taurus cusp–which to any astrology buffs should tell you plenty. I hit the East Coast convention circuit pretty hard and chances are, you can find me vending for Solstice Brews while simultaneously promoting my books.
