Today is the fourth day in writing the new novel 'Darkness In Truth'. I'm two hundred pages in and 60,000 words. I feel like my brain is mush. I can't even complete a thought. I won't bore you with the details, BUT I will tell you that I just killed off a character from a book.
Can't tell you who but I think it's a twist you'll all appreciate!
I did have some email questions today.
Here they are;
What TV shows do you watch and do they help you plan a book?
Believe it or not, I don't watch TV. I don't even have cable. I honestly don't have time. Don't get me wrong, I love a good episodes of Bones or NCIS, but I just don't sit down to watch them. I go to bed by nine p.m and am back up again at 2:30 to start working again.
I do tend to watch TV when I go away on vacation. It's my little luxury.
When you're not writing what are you doing?
Since September 2012 I've only taken two days off. One was Christmas and the other Valentine's Day. On Christmas I played with the kids and on Valentine's Day I played with the husband. Why should Elizabeth Blackhawk have all the fun. I get a great deal of crankiness from my proofer when I don't take time off. (She has ulterior motives. When I'm not working we go out to breakfast and gorge on bacon. When I am working, she gets the irritating text message from my phone telling her I'm busy)
Is Elizabeth anything like you, or you like her?
* Insert laughter here *
I could only hope to be just like Elizabeth. I would love to be like her when I grow up! Other than the Black curly hair, body type and the height, Elizabeth and I have nothing in common. (My friends will tell you I'm sarcastic like her, but I just don't see it. *wink wink*) Now, if you're referencing the two men, well that's a well guarded secret and if I tell you, then I have to ass kick you, Darlin'.
Oh Crap! Maybe I am just like her and I'm in total denial!
Let's look at the evidence.
Elizabeth loves a big greasy burger. So do I.
Elizabeth owns cowboy boots. So do I.
Elizabeth uses profanity frequently. Yep, guilty.
Elizabeth is in love with Natives I am Native.
Elizabeth has attitude issues Yeah Yeah
Elizabeth loves her Glock I'm a Ruger girl.
See there are differences! I am Not Elizabeth.
Thank you all for the emails. I look forward to them every day. I'll try to update the blog daily, but while I'm in book mode, I can't make promises.
Love, Murder and Mayhem
