The Dreaded Contemporary
I've hit a point in the Dreaded Contemporary where I can't seem to get it right. I swear, I must have written this scene ten times over by now. It's been in and out of the book, moved to different places, dismissed, reinstated and IT IS STILL NOT RIGHT! Although, I think each successive attempt brings it a little closer to how it should be.
It's pissing me off, I can tell ya. The thing is, while I quite like the DC, I don't want to spend the next six months working on it. I'd much rather it was only the next six weeks. Then I'd like to set it aside and attack something else while DC marinades on a shelf ready for edits. If only I could get this scene finished. Grrrrrrrrrrrr.
And just to make this stumbling block a little bit harder, I've contest judging to contend with and the Romance Divas mentor program officially started today! Oh, and my knee still hurts! (Stupid knee! Kills knee.) All I need now is for Vaughan to show up and start demanding attention. (Hm, I shall have to waylay him with cunning distractions :-))
So, back to the DC... (Stop farting about, Kit, and get on with the smexing, will you. Then I can write the nice big drum roll scene in the next chapter.)
Wish me luck.
Sometimes I hate the figments of my imagination.
