Hope everyone had a lovely Mother's Day.
So far, I have not written a word and half the morning is gone. I can hear the TV going in the other room where the youngest is stretched out on the sofa. The oldest talks non stop. I mean NON-STOP. About NOTHING. And she's talking (loudly) to her sister in the other room.
I'm getting this niggling feeling that my characters are not moving towards their overall goals and their actions are starting to feel mechanical rather than well-motivated. And how do I show my characters falling in love if I have to have conflict, conflict, conflict on every page? When do they slow down long enough to talk? and cuddle? and make love?
I managed to finish 4 of the 5 books for the Daphne Contest and am half way through the fifth. Scores are due back by the fifteenth so I've got that on my plate to finish up within the next two days. Hate to leave things until the last minute.
And that lawn looks like it needs to be mowed.
Need caffeine or a nap.
