I realized I haven't been blogging much this week. There are two reasons for this:
1. I'm working on a difficult chapter in TCB in which our practical heroine Maggie goes on a blind date with a faerie prince and learns that her normal human city is host to a second, secret fae city that most humans know nothing about. So, there's a lot going on.
2. I've been absorbed by two stories. One is Wildwood Dancing by Juliet Marillier, which is amazing amazing amazing. Even though TCB is set in the modern world, I think this is the best novel so far that I can point to and say, "My novel would appeal to fans of this book." It's the heroine and the pacing and the overall feel, I think. And I *love* it!!! The second is the anime xXxHolic, which is also a manga and is really good.
See, this is what happens when I'm not making my own stories, I just sort of lose myself. I start to disappear. It's nice but is it healthy?
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Me being a writer is like an alcoholic deciding to buy a vineyard and go into the wine business.
I suspect I'm not alone in this. Holla back, story-addicts!
