“‘I know,’ he said, and his acceptance earned him a kiss. She swooped in like a fresh breeze, the curtain of her dark hair falling over his as her lips touch his. It was a slow, meaningful kiss, all pressure and longing and hunger, and Silver slid his arm around her slender waist because it seemed she could not get close enough. He hand spread across her shoulder blades, and she moaned, part objection, part eagerness, and her fingers splayed across his naked chest. He wasn’t sure who started it, but their hips began to move in familiar patters, and he almost had his hands under her shirt again before she pulled back breathless.”
Today’s offering of a Round of Words in 80 Days update isn’t very much of one; there is very little to report, and a significant dilemma of needing to reassess my goals, for the most part. Battarack Girls has entirely slipped away from me right now, so I’m shelving it for the time being and turning my focus back onto Serpent in a Cage and The Unknown Scourge. It won’t be shelved indefinitely; I know I want to tell these girls’ stories, I know it’ll make a great and powerful YA book, but I think other things are going to come first. I’m still getting some reading done, and I think I might can this current issue of the first line, though if I can manage to steal some time today or tomorrow to whip something up, I think it would be worth it. It’s one of those things where there’s really nothing to lose, I just have to be better about sticking to a deadline and forcing something out despite my mood.
Today’s excerpt, by the way, is from The Unknown Scourge. Just a nice little slice of steam to brighten up your Sunday a little.
I’ve been giving some more contemplation on what book to finish for my second book, though I know I should be focusing more on making Bowlful of Bunnies available on other platforms. I’ve hit kind of a dead spot with the marketing, so I really need to get on those guest posts, too. Basically, I just need to focus and get back to work, but my motivation has been pathetically lacking.
Ah, well. I’m giving some significant thought to publishing Serpent in a Cage next; I’ve had my reluctance, which might make a good post one of these days, but right now it seems like the most appealing option. Of course, that could change entirely by next month, so who knows? The thing right now is to just keep working, and I’ll get to my destination eventually, wherever it may be.
If you get the chance, check out my fellow RoWers here and, until then, happy writing!
