Well, I was intending to start the story about Simon's mother in "The Gifting", but I got waylaid by a sex scene. Oo-err, missus. Hell, it happens to the best of us. So I've done that today instead - how I do so love writing those, but don't we all??... - even though it happens later in the book. It was also an interesting exercise describing it from Simon's point of view, as he's much more subtle and more emotionally cautious than my gay male characters in other books. Still, I'm glad I finally got round to giving him a good time, as he's had a pretty rotten one up to this point. Ah, the power of the author ... and another 1000 words done. Hurrah!
At the same time, I've updated my website with the real or latest beginnings to all my current novels - feel free to visit http://www.annebrooke.com and catch up. Go on, you know you want to ... possibly! And I've been establishing my page on http://www.myspace.com - it's a great site and I'm really impressed with what can be done on it. A fun place to be.
A spot of shopping in Godalming this afternoon, and then tonight I might leave the cleaning till tomorrow (again) and just watch TV instead. Can't wait for the Strictly Come Dancing update - I'm completely hooked. Not to mention lots of Friday night comedy - bliss.
Today's nice things:
1. Writing Simon's sex scene in "The Gifting"
2. Playing with myspace.com.
