Merry Christmas

More than a month since my last post, I clearly need to get into the habit of doing this more often.
The last month has been a busy one. I went and saw Kraftwerk they were really excellent. My husband commented that at one point they set a standing wave so powerful it was like being driven over by a truck, despite that they weren't too loud and I left with my eardrums in tact.
This month I also had to go to a funeral which is never a fun time but to balance that out I celebrated my 10 yr wedding anniversary which was lovely.
Anyway, I have a short story to finish so I'll leave you all with this clip of Robots from Kraftwerk and my sincere Christmas and New year best wishes.

Music: Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

I love her books, I came to them late so I've had a wonderful back catalogue to go through :)
Mood: looking forward to the holidays.

Almost done and ready to go.
Doing a little happy dance... and at the same time trying to remind myself not to get my hopes up.

Love the Dresden Files :)

After about a week of feeling like I was dragging my feet, or more accurately my brain, through mud when I tried to write, I'm finally starting to feel more perky. Only now I'm struggling to find the time, my minutes are being eroded to the point where I'm struggling to get any words down on the page.

I'm currently working on a novella but I keep thinking of places where I would just love to say more - the characters keep letting me in on more of their secrets. After some debate I've decided to stick with my original target length rather than re-work at this point. You know, actually finish it. Then see how I feel once I've written those fateful words; The End.

Music: Air
Reading: Goddess by Fiona McIntosh
This is the third and final in the series. Fiona McIntosh has had me since Myrren's Gift, her previous series. I picked it up completely at random with no idea what it was about and was very pleasantly surprised. Of her three series so far it remains my favourite.
Mood: Is stuck at work a mood? I'm stuck at work playing with numbers instead of working with the words for my WIP

Kick off

First post to get the ball rolling...
My name is Louise D and I'm am an aspiring author. I write romances because I can't resist a happy ending. One day I hope to be able to share happy endings of my own creation with readers.

Not as good as the previous ones - but it could be my mood.
My mood: currently seeking inspiration
