I swear the more I try to sleep - the worse it gets. I finally forced myself to go to bed at half past midnight and I was still lying there awake until 3 a.m. I was awake by 5:30 when Em started getting ready for work. Some night I'm lucky if I get 5 hours tops.
I hear you asking me what is keeping me up at nights? The answer is really simple - Michael-bloody-Marsden... more precisely I am up to the last four chapters in Living in Shadows and I'm trying to work out the sequence of events in those last four chapters. - I want to get it right...
It would be okay if the scene he is giving me was for this book but it isn't it's a scene in the beginning of book 4: The Trail Of Red Roses. For some reason I don't think the characters in The Lines Of Marsden are going to let me rest in between their books.
Poor Vlad, who runs the space inside my head where all my characters live; is run off his feet trying to keep everyone happy. Last night around 2 a.m. he was threatening to pack his possessions and leave - which would be okay, except he thinks Doyle from TLOM and Jhex from SOE are his possessions. So now I am being blackmailed by the people in my head - how is that fair?
On that note I am back to the computer and getting more words down to make people happy so they don't leave... Oh yeah, I'm so not under the command of my characters, but shhh, don't tell them I said that.
