Wow, I am a writing MACHINE today! Of course, this is probably due to the fact that I’ve been sitting in front of these screens for essentially the last 6 hours. I’ve been trying to front-load my word count, because I suspect I will not get much done on my working days. But still… *cough* It’s time to go, self. Get off the computer.
I am also beginning to suspect that I am a little too fond of having my Characters say the opposite of what they mean. *mirthful grin* It’s just, I seem to naturally include intrigue. Really, I don’t plan for it, and then suddenly half my characters are being watched and have to communicate “other ways.” *sigh*
However, I still quite like a lot of my characters. And those I don’t like I’m either killing or sending to a nunnery. Hmmm, I didn’t realize that was my plan until I wrote that. 😀 And Herr Bruno is still enormous fun to write. Check out his motivational style;
“Now, ladies and gentlemen, I do not have enough staff to spare them to the inevitable loss of limbs and dismemberment I will make sure result from mistakes, so please don’t make any.”
Good times, good times.
