Progress. Progress. Progress and Emails.

Today is the fourth day in writing the new novel 'Darkness In Truth'.  I'm two hundred pages in and 60,000 words. I feel like my brain is mush. I can't even complete a thought. I won't bore you with the details, BUT I will tell you that I just killed off a character from a book.
Can't tell you who but I think it's a twist you'll all appreciate!

I did have some email questions today.
Here they are;

What TV shows do you watch and do they help you plan a book?
~ Marna

Believe it or not, I don't watch TV. I don't even have cable. I honestly don't have time. Don't get me wrong, I love a good episodes of Bones or NCIS, but I just don't sit down to watch them. I go to bed by nine p.m and am back up again at 2:30 to start working again.
I do tend to watch TV when I go away on vacation. It's my little luxury.

When you're not writing what are you doing?
~ Kirstin

Since September 2012 I've only taken two days off. One was Christmas and the other Valentine's Day. On Christmas I played with the kids and on Valentine's Day I played with the husband. Why should Elizabeth Blackhawk have all the fun. I get a great deal of crankiness from my proofer when I don't take time off. (She has ulterior motives. When I'm not working we go out to breakfast and gorge on bacon. When I am working, she gets the irritating text message from my phone telling her I'm busy)

Is Elizabeth anything like you, or you like her?
~ Sarah

* Insert laughter here *
I could only hope to be just like Elizabeth. I would love to be like her when I grow up! Other than the Black curly hair, body type and the height, Elizabeth and I have nothing in common. (My friends will tell you I'm sarcastic like her, but I just don't see it. *wink wink*)  Now, if you're referencing the two men, well that's a well guarded secret and if I tell you, then I have to ass kick you, Darlin'.
Oh Crap! Maybe I am just like her and I'm in total denial!
Let's look at the evidence.
Elizabeth loves a big greasy burger.       So do I.
Elizabeth owns cowboy boots.                So do I.
Elizabeth uses profanity frequently.        Yep, guilty.
Elizabeth is in love with Natives             I am Native.
Elizabeth has attitude issues                   Yeah Yeah
Elizabeth loves her Glock                       I'm a Ruger girl.
See there are differences! I am Not Elizabeth.

Thank you all for the emails. I look forward to them every day. I'll try to update the blog daily, but while I'm in book mode, I can't make promises.

Love, Murder and Mayhem
