I never knew…

…just how much energy this takes.

Tonight I’ve written a goodly number, fitted in a whole new chapter. and I’m tired. I thought this was just going to be a breeze – apparently not. last night I was writing something and I cried. Because it was so close to the bone.

What I’ve got so far, no idea how good or how bad it is.

What do you think of this? You be the judge. But please, not too harshly I beg πŸ˜‰

He walks towards her with the loose limbed gait that makes him such a good dancer, encroaching on her personal space. She revels in it. Breathes him into her soul. He bends down and lightly kisses her cheek. Just a flutter of lips against her skin. She sways towards him, oblivious to her actions. His hand curls around the nape of her neck, lightly rubbing the sensitive skin there. Pulls her head to rest against his chest. And Morgan knew she was lost. This kind of tenderness is not something you find every day. This kind of care does not happen. Certainly not to the likes of her. He holds her like she means something. And she feels cherished like never before. Surrounded by his warmth, she allows herself to rest. She allows herself to not always be in control. She allows his strength into her life.

Now I need to eat, feed the body, feed the soul, feed the brain. And I need to switch off for a while.

Tomorrow is dancing, and on Thursday, I won tickets to go see Thor at Monte casino. So I’m taking the kid with me – not too long before he’s also gone and then it’s only Mom and the sister left to do things with. Speaking of which, I am going with her to see some or other show sometime this month – I think they should move NaNoWriMo to another month πŸ˜‰

Let me leave you with this cool tune. And, as always, bear with me – I will get to everybody’s stuff soon.

Sweet dreams!

  1. I like it. Delectable reading. Stay with it. You are doing fantastic.
    Yes, you must pace yourself and look after yourself. You must eat and rest. Each week you will feel another difference as you rock on down this road. πŸ˜‰

  2. J, you are doing great! Those are the toughest to write. You hit just the right note. As to it being tiring, there’s a reason why they say, “Writing’s easy. You just sit down and open up your veins.” πŸ˜‰

  3. Most seductive writing. And there was me not going to comment, until you’d typed “The End”. It’s very good and contains much to fascinate, even in that short piece. Watch the adverbs, though — the words ending in “ly”, especially used in repetition. You have ‘lightly” twice. How about having the word “teasing” in place of “lightly rubbed”?
    (There I go! The inner editor. You don’t need me at this stage. Later, after you’ve read it all through yourself and, doubtless, picked up on repetitions yourself).

    I am definitely (would delete adverb, if it wasn’t apt!) liking your novel already πŸ™‚
