You dream and I dream very differently

I do my best writing before I go to sleep. Why is that?  It is so frustrating and inconvenient.  I'm just drifting off when my characters have a conversation and the light has to come back on and I have to start jotting it all down. Would it be easier to write during daylight hours when I am alert - probably - but it doesn't work out that way. Start of the new year and my inspiration has been decidedly absent but last evening a beta buddy of mine gave me a little inspiration.....
There is nothing wrong with that now is there! The fact that she revealed it at nine o'clock at night just when I had resigned myself to doing no writing is irrelevant. The fact that it kept me awake creating delicious new scenes is also unimportant. It did help to get 1k of a Valentines story written and allowed from some introspection about princey and where his story is going.

Today I had lunch with some lovely girlfriends and happened to mention that David Gandy was the inspiration for princey and one of the girls was not impressed. I told her to wait-I had just the picture that would change her mind!  It's interesting how differently we all imagine and dream. I'm writing princey and in my head princey looks exactly like David Gandy only more troubled and with a Latin accent but she had pictured someone completely different. Her exact phrase was 'Yuck' lol.  So the moral of the story is you can't win them all! She loves the story but I may have ruined princey for her because my bit of hot totty is clearly very different to hers. At least we won't be fighting over him.

So if princey ever gets finished and finds a publishing home I hope that I am not disappointed by the cover art because I have grown rather found of my Gandy prince. I guess getting David Gandy to do the cover is a little out of my league.....

  3. Wow I would be very impressed if David Gandy ended up on your cover. Let's just say I wouldn't be complaining!
