I have to admit, sometimes I get a little bit frustrated when a lot of time has passed (by which I mean a week) and I haven't been able to post anything new to Lit. This is probably why I end up having some shorter stories. I've been working really hard on my Halloween story, which I really want to have done by the end of this week so that I can submit it right at the beginning of October, and that's definitely a long story.  All of the Being the Maid chapters are turning out to be fairly long, which I think is a good thing overall, but it does mean I don't get that instant gratification =P And of course, Venus Rising isn't going to be out until it's completely done. But I've been getting a WHOLE lot of work done on that one lately and really enjoying it, so that's good.

Apparently I'm just prey to my generation's need for things to be done quickly. It really does frustrate me when I can't get enough writing done. On Friday I got a ton done but it was almost all on Venus Rising. Sometimes what I feel like working on really just depends on what my mood is. I did manage to get a little bit done on the other stories, but not as much. Hopefully after Halloween is over I'll be able to get some other stories out a little more quickly.  I think I'm feeling more pressure on this one cuz I'm entering it into a contest and it's making me harder to work on it consistently because I feel like I need to do a really good job if it's going to be an entry. Even beyond the pressure I usually put on myself lol.

The third chapter of Being the Maid looks like some of the plot is starting to develop a little more. Bridget fascinates the hell out of me. I don't think I've ever had a character quite like her. Makes it interesting to write because she's constantly surprising me.  In some ways she's almost handling her situation a little too well and I kind of want her to freak out a little more, but she's such a pragmatic and quick thinking little thing it's like she's too busy to slow down and do so. Fascinating. And the men don't give her much time to slow down either.

Anyway. That's what's going on right now. I hope everyone had a good weekend! I know I did =)

  1. As much as I love your writing, I'd prefer delayed gratification if it means a nice long chapter for Being the Maid. Looking forward to your Haloween story. :)
