Just disappear, for days.
I’m really sorry for this. I’ve just been so strictly dedicated to my book these days I have avoided anything that may distract me from my goal including reading, listening to something other than “Local Natives,” being on FB or LJ (even replying to regular emails), and watching TV. I’m not getting as much as I’d like to get accomplished, but I have worked on it literally everyday this week (somewhere between 1,000 & 2,5000 words a night). I’ve written some really riveting stuff at the first turning point of my story. Mom even described some of it as “steamy” although I hope not too much otherwise it will be inappropriate.
It feels good to be so involved in the book again like this, but I have to admit a little depressing at the same time. Teagan’s in a really dead state of mind right now and Bryce isn’t far behind her from worrying about her so much, so therefore I am in a sort of numb mood to fit their mind frame. You know how they say some actors really try to live the part of their characters to make the role believable? That’s kind of how I am right now with my book. I’ve left lovey-dovey land and have officially entered hell.
Aside from writing as much as I have been I’ve also been in panic mode over the fact that my truck will officially die by the end of the month (if not sooner). I’m an not good with change, nor are my finances in good enough order to be getting a new vehicle, but the earth has decided I must and so I’m trying to prepare myself for it. I’m not doing a good job though. The stress is big on my shoulders and I’d really just rather pretend its not happening, but I can’t because every time I get in my truck I drive on edge worrying that this trip might be its last and it’s death may cause an accident. ::Sigh::
Anyway, I just thought I’d check in. I miss all my writer friends’ chatter, but I really don’t want to let go of the story at such a critical time. Somehow, I know you all understand.
Peace – Sarah
P.S. Finally came up with a last name for Brynn & Bryce… (I think)
