Happy Friday everyone. Don’t forget to stop by the Scribes. My guest today is Sharon Buchbinder! Don’t miss a chance to say hello.
So here’s how my week has been. I’ve had this stuffy nose (either a cold or sudden allergy onslaught after the freak warm weather here in New England).
Needless to say, I’ve been dragging my sorry carcass around with a box of tissues and a grumpy attitude.
And when I attempted to write, my characters decided to give me crap. Kind of like this:
Me: “Zephyr, I’m so sick of you.”
Zephyr: “Who me? I haven’t done anything wrong.” He spots a bag on the dining room table and reaches for it. “Is that a new book?”
Me: I ignore the question. ”Why are you making my life so difficult?”
Z: “Don’t look at me. It’s all in your head.” <plastic crinkles>
Me: “Sure be a typical man. Deny that you have any part in all of this. Why did you have to go and piss off the Fates? You’re making my life hell.”
Z: “If I hadn’t you wouldn’t have a story to tell, now would you?”
Me: “I don’t appreciate the cheek. If I wanted that, I’d go find Devlin.”
Devlin: “Did someone mention moi?”
Me: “No Devlin. I’m too stressed out to deal with you today.”
D: “Well pardon me.” He turns to Zephyr. “Has she been like this all week?”
Z: “You have no idea.” He pulls out J.R. Ward’s Lover Reborn and brandishes it in my face.
D: “Hey, she’s reading about those vampires again. What? We aren’t sexy enough for you?” He flexes his muscles. “And you have the nerve to complain that your word count is bad.” <wags finger> “For shame!”
I sit in the corner, chanting, “I’m the Author Goddess. I’m the Author Goddess…”
Zephyr, examines his nails. “Yeah, keep telling yourself that, sweetheart. Devlin, up for a round of drinks?”
Devlin says, “You bet your windy ass I am. Oh, mighty Author Goddess, have fun with the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Too bad they aren’t going to write your book for you.”
They leave me muttering to myself like an idiot. I’m so pathetic even The Doubt Monster feels bad for me this week.
And on that note, I leave you with this great comic. Thank you Toni Andrews. You don’t know how badly I needed the laugh!
