I realise I'm not exactly on blogging top form, but I don't feel I have much to say. If you at all pay attention to the sidebars, you've probably noticed that the word count for Fortuna is ever creeping upwards. I've hit 80,000 words and there's still plenty to go. I don't doubt it's going to make 90,000 words, which may result in me having to do some ruthless cutting if anyone decides to buy this particular wonder.
I blame too many plot strands and my typical cast of thousands (all right, not quite that many).
Incidentally, I've realised that's why that contemporary idea I was working on wasn't working. It was too straightforward. I'm just not happy unless everything is hopelessly complicated. This is one of the problems I have with the romance genre and the movement of BL towards erotic romance. It's all too neat. I like loose ends and ambiguity. I don't believe in HEA's, and I absolutely cannot get my head around the heroine's magical hoohah of rakery reform.
I'm going to stop there before this turns into a rant.
