Haha you’re so sweet!

I really like what I’ve written so far for sixteenth kiss but I have literally been writing so much lately that I’ve been getting writers block out of the sheer need to SLOW DOWN! It’s okay to write a crappy first draft though. I just reread some early chapters of Charm and Contention where I could not stop cringing. Apparently during Nano last year I decided to throw all caution, and commas, to the wind and was just like “Hey, I’ll figure it out later.”

When you go back and edit you can add all those cool wisdomous sayings that make all the other writes go “wahhhhh!? I would never have thought to write it that way but I’m smelling what that writer is steppin in!”

I’m really sick of writing Charm and Contention too. Historical Fiction is hard. But I love it. But I hate all the research. But I secretly love the research. I spent an hour reading about the different classifications of Regency carriages and even longer trying to learn their rules for social interaction which in reality NO ONE EVEN REALLY FOLLOWED UNLESS THEY WERE THE QUEEN! I should use the July Camp to help finish that story. But I’ve worked myself into such a corner that I need to go back and rewrite so much. Seriously, why did I pick writing as just a hobby? I should have picked up knitting. Or quantum physics. Both would be easier.

okay the whole "No Exit" episode had me like:

I thought I even missed an episode I was so confused by all the lazy writing. Like Nostradamus and Olivia going from 0 to 60 and then back to 0 in about five minutes of screen time. Or the fact that Bash is in the castle just chillin and seems to forgotten all about his new BFFs in the woods!? And Lola and Count BoomBoomSexyFace are already married and such... ugh...I'm suing for whiplash. And the last scene Francis officially proves he is the worst B-hole (I like that you used that word) husband ever!

I'd write more but Nano's got me like:

Hi Cassie,

Thank you so much for the in-depth review on Seller of Skins! I'm amazed by how much you noticed; often I worry that in my attempt not to be too obvious I end up becoming overly cryptic, but it seems like you picked up on all the little hints. :) Haha, I keep hearing the "was" comment; at first I didn't even realize how frequently I used it but now as I go back and reread my writing I see it popping up everywhere! Oh well. There is some editing in my future for sure. At least now I'm catching the impulse and fixing it as I write... I hope. xD
