Hello, Chapter 12

Is there any bliss equal to that of finishing the first draft of a chapter that managed to get stalled, derailed and/or otherwise take foreffingever to write? I think not.

I have finally found my groove, having misplaced it a month or so ago due to an existential crisis (no lie). And this morning saw me moving onto a new chapter in my Scrivener MS for my Austen-based YA contemporary romance, and I am squeeful about it. Especially since we get to ALMOST-KISSING in this chapter, and ACTUAL KISSING in the next. *prances about*

You are hereby cordially invited to stand with me and do the dance of joy. Or, you know, not. If you opt in, may I suggest this loverly song from Fitz and the Tantrums, the group I saw in concert last evening (in Brooklyn, no less - talk about your spontaneous concert road trips. Also, they were fabbity-fab).

Hooray for getting unstuck! That is the BEST feeling. And hoorayx2 for kissing scenes, which are my favorites. :) If you ever need another reader, I'd be honored!

Some day I might take you up on that offer. When I finally see the back of Chapter 23 (which will actually be at least Chapter 25, due to my weird outline adherence accommodation).

Oh, HUZZAH!!! YAY! Twist and shout!

The other night I played a sample of F&tT for D., and he said, "She's going to go see a band from the sixties?!"

They've got that sound!

They do have that sort of sound - very Motown. A little less so in concert, where their energy is through the roof, but still, it's there. And it's in their "look" as well - slim suits, skinny ties.

Patsy toasts you and Numfar joins you in the Dance of Joy!

(and Numfar is an Angel reference -- not sure if you ever watched it ..)
