Flynn and more…

03 Nov

Writing can be a lonely place. And at times, a difficult one. Right now I have a total of four completed stories in my head. If I could plug a thumb drive in my ear and simply hit download on the screen of my brain, Broken Lens, two new stories and the fourth Mercy novel would be complete. No editing would be required because in my head everything would download grammatically correct.

Unfortunately for me, it doesn’t work that way. And at times, I can’t bring myself to type the words. It’s not really writer’s block as I know what to say. But it’s something that prevents me from typing them anyway. Unlike some authors, I don’t have a strict regiment for writing every day. As much as I’ve tried to implement that policy, so far it hasn’t worked.

I must admit that I’m anxious to write the Mercy story. The way it’s unfolded in my head, Flynn is eager to get out and on paper.  And of course there are a few more surprises that should please some.

However, I have 2 stories I must finish first. Liabilities is written and is begging me to finish the editing process. But Ethan has filled my thoughts the last two days. I’ve chosen Broken Lens to be my Nanowrimo story. For those that don’t know, it’s National Novel Writing Month, which is November.

In two days, I’ve written over 13,000 words to what I’d already written. I know every word that needs to be written from start to finish. And I fear if I stop to work on something else, I’ll lose my momentum. Heck at the way I’m working, I could be finished by week’s end. But I’ll make no such promises. Want a teaser…

This book is written from Ethan’s POV (at least mostly).

“You see Ethan, my lawyers assure me that this case will be dropped. The prosecution is not in the business of working on losing cases.”

There it was. I couldn’t stop the question in my head from tumbling from my mouth. “What does this have to do with me?”

“Everything,” he taunted.

Even though Ethan has consumed me, that doesn’t mean I don’t have Flynn, Luke, Sebastian, Paul, Keller, Turner, Kalen and Colton on my brain. Opps, did I mention Colton. Forget I said that. That’s for another time.

*Looks away because I’ve said too much.* 😉

(Change topic :))

So I wrote that POV of Flynn ages ago. And someone asked me about the next Mercy book on the Cambion’s group on Goodreads. I do try to pay attention and respond to questions and such on various media. For that reason, I’m taking this time to do a blog post which I haven’t done in forever and post this POV. So, you guys can thank Kelly. It was her kind words that took me out of Ethanville and back into Flynn Heights, lol. I’m a sucker for kind words.

Anyway guys, no matter what book you are waiting for, I’m working on it in some way. Liabilities will be released this month if it’s the last thing I do. Broken Lens will be on its heels. Then, I’ll put all my effort into the next Mercy book. I do have the cover to share with you all, but another day.

    Great! Can’t wait to read this POV, BUT…..I can’t help but notice there’s no mention of Remember Me?? I really enjoyed that one.

      Remember, the first novel I ever wrote. Yes, that one is one the back burner. I thought I should focus on finishing the Cambion series before introducing a new one. Who knows. I may change my mind. It still sits finished. Peter and Alex… Ah, yes, more boys.

        Glad to hear it hasn’t been discarded completely 🙂 I didn’t know that was the first one you wrote?? But I’m all for working on the Cambion series, so all is good. I can wait lol

        It was the first and my baby. It hardly resembles its first draft. At advice from others at the time it was written, I went with something different and Mercy was born. It will see the light of day, my focus is just elsewhere currently. 😉

    Well, I look forward to reading it again and seeing how it’s changed from the beta I read 😀

    Shannon, as you know I can’t wait for the next Mercy book. This is still my number one series. When ever I am talking about books with someone I mention “Mercy”. I even have all three in my smashbook in my list of top 15 books ever.
    I am also excited for Broken Lens as the end to Through the Lens totally floored me.
    If you ask me what I really want to be next after Mercy I would choose the sequel to Alliance. I have fallen in love with Keller and Hudson. They will never be Luke, of course, but I find them special.
    I hope you never doubt what a wonderful author you are. You bring characters to life that become part of my family. Naturally Luke is my book boyfriend and has been for the last two years. I hope Nano writing continues to be successful inspiration for you. 🙂

      Thanks! ❤ The sequel to Alliance, Rouge is written. It's been finished for a while. Sad I know. It needs to have a final read through and go through editing. Keller is my favorite character of all. So he's very important to me. I just need time I don't have. But yes, I'll squeeze that one in between somewhere.

      As far as Luke (I love him) goes, you are just going to have to trust me there. I can't say more without being a spoil sport other than things will work out the way the should. It killed me more than… to do what I had to do. But it will all work out for the best. (Darn it, I typed something I had to delete. (spoiler) It's getting late and my tongue is loose, lol)

      Broken Lens will hopefully wrap up all the unanswered questions everyone has.

      Thanks for your kind words. They help inspire me to keep going when I'm ready to give up. 😀
