So here I am, awake and needing to be asleep. I have all these thoughts running around in my head and know that until I get them out on paper I won't be able to relax and get some Zs. Some of it is just crap that will end up in the garbage, but some of it is the beginnings of a new book. Slowly, as I get it all out, I get sleepy, but now I don't want to go to sleep because I'm on a roll.
What does it all mean? It means that I'm an author and I can't be satisfied no matter how much I get written or how clean it is, it's not enough. There can always be just a little more emotion in the scene or a little less redundancy. You can always find something wrong somewhere in every book. Still, you don't want it to be yours.
I'm writing on The Dirty Dozen's Christmas book but my mind is already on another book I want to work on. I feel like I'm not doing The Dirty Dozen justice by thinking about another WIP (work in progress). It feels a lot like cheating. Then what would all my books say if they knew that I keep at least two more books open on my computer at the same time I'm working on that one?
Yeah, I'm sleep deprived and need to give in and climb in bed. Things will seem different in the light of day after I get some sleep. Let's just hope it is enough sleep to do my writing justice. Until then, let me give you a hint of what is going on with The Dirty Dozen for Christmas.
The wives of the men have decided they want to support a charity for the holidays and need to figure out a way to raise money for their cause. When they decide that their men can help out with the plan, the women know they'll have to do some seducing to convince the twelve men to pitch in. Add in some spicy sex, some old fashioned loving, and a good cause, and you have the makings for a Dirty Dozen Christmas like you've never imagined.
Here are the books from the series If you haven't read them, check them out at either The Dirty Dozen books on Amazon or at Siren Bookstrand
