Thoughts on Hump Day

Yesterday I submitted Chapter 5 of Being the Maid =)  I have ten chapters planned, so as long as there are no more 'surprise' chapters (like chapter 3) then we're halfway through the series! And this chapter ends with a bit of a cliffhanger. Should be fun! Also getting close to the point where I think Garrett's going to want to speak up and have his own viewpoint heard.  It's coming much later than I originally thought it would but I'm looking forward to it.

I'm finding that, in my old age (haha, at least compared to when I first started writing ;) that I'm preferring stories with more of a plot line over the 'quickie' stories that I used to write. Although I can occasionally still churn out a 'quickie', if it takes me longer to write than a couple of days I grow bored with it. That seems to be happening with Sins of the Sorority right now... and I'm probably going to change the name. I have a feeling I'm knocking it back down to a one parter and some of the scenes that I envisioned will end up being in some other story. Which is not a bad thing. I've just found that unless I'm engaged in a full on plot, like for a novella or book, I lose interest in writing.

Most of my interest lately has been garnered into Being the Maid and Venus Desiring, although I do have a new storyline that will eventually be made available in book form that's a Victorian era erotic romance. I've been reading a lot of Victorian era books lately, some romances and some steampunk, and it's definitely effecting my inspirations. I really wish that I could buckle down and just work hard on one until it's finished, but I can't help but jockey back and forth. Too many ideas going on to just stick with one for awhile, even if each individual book would be finished faster that way. *Sigh*

At any rate. I'll be submitting the sorority story by the end of this week. I think I'm about halfway through Venus Desiring at this point... I hope anyway. And the next chapter of Being the Maid should be out in a couple days and hopefully chapter 6 will be available sometime next week.

In the meantime, I will be pondering possible plotlines for a standalone called "Binders Full of Women" ;)
