The Perils of Finishing a Book

Recently I explained where I got my ideas from.  (Something about magical fairy aliens sprinkling them on my idea like pixie dust.  Don't sue me, Disney.)  I was thinking about the book I'm wrapping up now.  It's the second book in a series.  I don't think there will be a third one, but I won't say it for sure.

The first one, Sea of Dreams, is now free on Amazon.  On B&N.  And on Smashwords.  (Sorry to my UK fans.  I'll post it as soon as they catch up to the free price.)  Hopefully people will read the first one, become hopelessly hooked, and move on to the second one, Mountains of Dreams.

This is the one I'm trying to finish.

But I have so much help.

I put earphones on.  Someone comes up to me and stands there, looking at me.  LOOKING at me.  Silently willing me to look back, until I am compelled to do so.  Resistance, as the Borg are inclined to say, is futile.


This is part of the perils of writing on the weekend.  But it wasn't done yet.
 
 
So not done yet.
 
 
I wanted to write, yet....
 
 
But it wasn't just them.
 
 
You'd think I could get a few sentences in there somewhere.  But no-oooh.
 
 
Still not done.
 
 
And thus I gave up for the day.

I feel your pain. I have been there and struggled with the chamber of silence i build to be in the STORY. I might add the story that they ALL insisted i finish. I love Veiled Eyes. Finsihed at about 6 a.m. i read now far more than I write, but after fighting my way to the surface after a six year fight of spinal injury i am determined to dust off my butt - if I can find it after sitting on it for the last few years. I am on my fifth kindle by the way. I started Sea of Dreams at the pain clinic this morning and once again am sophie, just as i was Anna. I am so glad there will be more. We bibliophiles must have more from your very quirky mind. Can not wait.
By the way my kids grew up without anytooth decay, rickets or any separation issues and my husband is still my husband. He can even cook more than frozen pizza.

I think you should add a picture of me with the words: ARE YOU DONE YET? ARE YOU DONE YET? WHEN CAN I READ IT? HURRY, HURRY, WRITE FASTER!
