Discouraged

For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, or a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. - Fr. Alfred D'Souza

Not much to say. I'm very, very frustrated with my NaNo book -- it's rather dull and I'm not feeling inspired by it. Have to admit to thinking about changing over to my paranormal and wonder if I can play catch up since I'm only a week in ... you'll know when I know.

Ben is my hero from my NaNo novel last year. I love him, but didn't love my heroine and--although I finished the book, it didn't work for me. So, I took him from that story and gave him a whole new start and it's still not working.

Frustrating.

*sigh*

What Your Face Says

At first glance, people see you as strong willed and stubborn.

Overall, your true self is passionate and physical.

With friends, you seem dramatic, lively, and quick to react.

In love, you seem mysterious and interesting.

In stressful situations, you seem sad and helpless.


Except... I don't know if I've ever seemed helpless. The rest? Okay...

Yikes, I'm afraid of running into that problem too. So far so good, but I haven't given my hero and heroine any alone time yet. I have no idea whether they'll have any chemistry or not. I ditched my first story on the second day. I think you'll be fine if you start something new this early on. If it's a story that grabs you I bet you'll have no problem.

Now get to it!! And I have to get to my galley though I had a friend offer to do that for me. Is that kosher?

That's the problem I'm having with my novel right now (not NaNo). I like the hero, not so much the heroine. I seem to write heroes very well, but I've been told my heroines are a little too sarcastic. I wonder why that would be. ;o)
