Dear Eamon and company
at the moment Eamon(wouldn't Paul Bettany make a YUMMY Eamon?) and the gang and touring about so I'll be moving back to my other WIP until the vampires start talking to me again. they can only go so long without barging back into the front of my mind. I hope they'll let me finish FUNdraiser because I enjoy writing it but I never get very far with it because the dang vamps won't be quiet. and they've got some problems. but they'll just have to deal for now. I need to finish this before I finish the third installment of The Primigenio Tales.
it's kind of hard switching focus like that. after being immersed in the minds of my characters for so many months, it's hard to switch back to reality. I was telling a friend about my WIP and he was stunned to find out that there wasn't one single paranormal element in it. yep, that's true but my story isn't run of the mill by a long shot. could you imagine me doing run of the mill? no. all I'll say about it is my MC is living my dream. unfortunately it doesn't pan out for her and causes a big ol bag of trouble but it's a fun read along the way. if I can't write paranormal, I write edgy and funny. so now I'll head back to the world of SEC universities and trying to be a success in a thankless job the normal way. that never works so you know it's gonna have some spice. and I think even Eamon would dig it. I know I'm being vague and stuff but I'm not ready to talk details about FUNdraiser yet. when I am, you'll wish I'd shut up!
