You probably don't want to read this blog post. I'm not a happy camper. I'm struggling with my 100 words for today and I have NO DESIRE TO PICK UP A PENCIL! (or pen or to put fingers to the keyboard. You get the idea.)

I figured out today that I've been writing THE SAME SUSPENSE SCENE for the last few days of the challenge. The new scene starts off one way and I think it's going to be awesome, but then somehow I end up back to the same conversation between my hero and heroine. I think it's happened about 3 or 4 times now. (Yeah, and I just realized it. Yeah, I'm a little slow apparently.)

I finally asked my suspense hero what he wanted from me. He still hasn't answered. GGGRRR.

Update: When the clock struck ten and he STILL hadn't answered, I switched to writing the new contemporary. With that, I squeezed out 241 words and got some good ideas for a starting point tomorrow. I guess suspense isn't in my immediate future.

I love the idea of asking the hero what he wants...I've never thought of that!

Be patient with yourself - it will all get out on paper in time.

BRAVO on the challenge!

Oh, yeah, Heather. I just write down what those voices in my head tell me to write!
