The story that made me blush

I'm back in Britain today, visiting Linda King's Excuse Me While I Note That Down... blog, and I'm talking about the story that made me blush to write it!

In other news, I'll be attempting a personal best deadlift at the gym this morning (a feeble PB, but one nonetheless) and hopefully editing/additing my WIP. I actually made it to halfway yesterday, until I realised that I'd lost the voice again, so I'm going to have to go back and figure out why that keeps happening.

How are your current projects going?

  1. happy to hop on the tour bus. As I wrote on her comment board, you are braver than me. I keep thinking I'll try a sex scene, but alas out comes the cling wrap. Ssshhh.

    1. I think some writers do a good job of not writing sex scenes - I think that's my natural preference, NOT to do it!

    2. yes, i admit, i've written a few. the hard part is to make them not sound cheesy or overdone. the ones i like best to read are the ones that don't give every detail.

  2. 'Additing' is a great word. I should be doing that, but instead I'm procrastinating as usual.

    1. I can't claim the term for myself, I think I've stolen it from Sally Quilford :-)

  3. Good luck with finding the voice again. I struggled with that myself - went from YA to "adult," from third person POV to first person POV and now back to third POV - but I'm finally "hearing" my protagonist. :)

    1. POV changes are tough. I sometimes can't decide which tense to use. Well done for sticking with it!

    1. Forests are so atmospheric, the way the trees talk to you. I've got an idea lurking which centres around a forest!
