About to cloister myself in the bedroom -- which is the only air-conditioned room in the house -- to write for five days.
I wrote about 15,000 words last week, which is a ton. I want to write a similar number this week.
I am literally writing faster than my editor can keep up with.
I was sort of at a cross roads when I wrapped up last week's writing and started driving home to Bend from Crescent City. I have good vampires and bad vampires and the innocent and not so innocent humans who interact with them.
"I need something more," I said to Linda. "Some outside element that will add to the book."
"Vampire - hunters," she said.
Well, that's just too easy, I thought. Way too predictable. But the more I thought about it....
So I woke up yesterday and wrote down a scene of vampire- hunters entering the story...
And off I go.
