You might have noticed the lack of decent posts lately. You also might have noticed the word count for B9 hasn't moved in... a while.
I wish I could say that my lack of updates and whatnot is because I've been sooo busy writing that I haven't had time for the blog, or even enough time to update the word count here. But sadly, that would be a lie.
I have a detailed outline of the book, I know all the characters, so it's not like one of them is throwing me off (like one character in B15.1), and I even know exactly what's going to happen next. I'm just having trouble getting the words out. Maybe I need more music. I've been working on the soundtrack, and it now has 7 songs (which is considerably more than my other book soundtracks). But 7 songs go pretty fast and after the third or fourth time they start to annoy me.
I think maybe I just need to sit down with my iPod and force myself to write. I took a break from writing to edit the first page and a half so I could send it to my critique group, but I finished that a few days ago and still haven't gotten anything new done.
*sigh* I hope the book isn't dying.
I probably shouldn't be thinking like that. As soon as I start to think that the book is dying, it will die... Or at least go into a coma until I revisit it in a year or so.
Anyway, I have a lot of books to finish reading, and I should at least try to get something done with B9. So, the posts might be kinda "bleh" for a while (also, I've found myself spending more and more time on Shelfari).
There should be a few reviews up soon--one book and a movie--so you'll have those to look forward to. :)
