Oops, I Did It Again

Um...I now have one less book on my TBR pile. Needless to say, I didn't get much writing done yesterday. See, I spent most of the day reading. Starting right after I got home from boxing class and grocery shopping.

I'm a bad, bad writer. But there is such pure pleasure to be had in losing oneself in story well-told. And Dark Lover is a story well-told. I admit it, I'm hooked. Yes, there were some bits I stumbled over (the hero is so blind he needs his meat cut up for him, but he has no problem telling that the heroine is wearing a lace bra...) I'm sure I'll find myself in a book store at some point tomorrow, buying the rest of this series.

Still, great writing - great storytelling - inspires the creative mind. Renews it. So basically, I was working...

Hush. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.


  1. Oh man...just wait until you read the second one...I cried my eyes out like a girly girl (but in a totally GOOD way)!

  2. I know how you feel. I've been working on getting Coiled Revenge out the door, but I can't stop reading. I need to write, but I want to read.

  3. great to find a book like that. I can't remember the last one that grabbed me like that. At the mo I'm going through a werewolf phase and reading 2 at once. Both best sellers but I get so bored I switch to the other one back and forth and skim big sections so... I dunno. Maybe I'm just hard to please. But I can feel myself wanting to rewrite them, screaming no, no no don't write it that way. lol

    Refilling the creative well is an important part of the process! :)

  5. I'm in the same place. Lots of reading but not much writing. I'm rationalizing by telling myself it's research... Yeah yeah that's the ticket. ;o)

  6. May I suggest, Kristen, that you just take a reading vacation and finished ALL of those Black Dagger Brotherhood books before pretending you'll have time to write? I read all four of them in 10 days. Another friend read all four in 5 days! Just give it up and get them out of your system now...and then #5 comes out in September. :-)


  7. I love that series! :)

  8. So...you're going to let me borrow those, right? :)

    I think I have some free time in October.
