Why am I procrastinating with Chapter Nine?

I don't know. Perhaps because it's that I haven't written on this ms since October. Maybe I just have to really get going again, get a rhythm, fall in love. Although I am still quite silly over my hero. I lurve him. So why oh why am I procrastinating?

Part of me wants to skip over the next few chapters so I can get to the really exciting part....we have a huge emotional moment coming and even, yes, you're hearing it here first...a tornado. Had THAT little brainstorm 2 nights ago. But I have to set it all up first, with TENSION ON EVERY PAGE. Say it together people, TENSION ON EVERY PAGE. So, I have hard work to do first.

Partly I am procrastinating because I am the QUEEN of sagging middles, and this is about 2/3 of the way through the book. If I can get through the next 2 chapters I'm in the home stretch.

Or, here's a revolutionary idea. I could just stop making excuses and write the damn thing.


  1. Oh, yes, yes! The Maas says tension on every page! If only it were that easy

  2. Christ, that was hard!
