Wherein I'm Jaye Tyler

I’m currently in the middle of writing a YA fantasy WIP. Those of you who have been keeping up with this blog will know right away that this WIP is CM. And since I’m Jaye Tyler at the moment for this post, CM—in the same sense—is a squishy-faced wax lion:

Yes, a squishy-faced wax lion. No, I'm not crazy....

I’ve been melting that sucker steadily upping the word count for it this month, and oh, the feeling is glorious!

Glorious, I say!

Of course, whenever there is a feeling of glory present while writing, doom almost always follows—doom in the form of a bajillion plot monkeys. (Excuse me, wax lions!) Wax lions, like plot monkeys, are chatty, and they never fail to simultaneously say:

“You’ll never get rid of all of us.”

Naturally, when this happens, my reaction is this:

Until their chatter completely overwhelms me, that is. Then it’s this:


(This post isn’t exactly a complaint. I’ve been wanting to work on another book or two alongside CM, since I’ve long-learned that I am more productive when writing a couple WIPs at once. The problem, though, is that there’s more than just a couple WIPs trying to nab my attention. Waaaaay more. And they’re all so loud, which makes it harder to decide which ones I should concentrate on. Oh, the woes of a writer….)
