The Voices Inside My Head

Who would have thought that the voices inside my head are becoming morning people? Well, Courtney and Alex anyways. It seems like lately I've been getting my best writing done on the mornings I sneak in some writing time before logging in at the "for now job that pays the bills" at 8 am. 

I'm hovering on the verge of the 30,000 word mark on Sex & Suplexes. That means I'm finally really into the meat of the story and both Courtney and Alex are yacking away for me now. After the first bleed through edit my manuscripts usually come out at just under 100,000 words so I guess I'm about a third of the way.

Alex, or should I say his ex Lara, as totally dropped a bomb on the Great Wall of Plot. She's tried to tell Alex but so far he's not figured it out yet. It's all going to come to a head on the weekend of the Asheville PPV and will explain why he ditches Courtney that night and she winds up in bed with Billy. Like she ever needs an excuse to wind up screwing Billy. 

This surprise plot twist is going to dump a whole lot of drama on poor Alex. As if dating the likes of Courtney isn't drama enough in itself. I supposed more conflict is always a good thing. Especially in a novel. Now I just have to go back and revise the Great Wall of Plot to make it all fit into the story.

I'm currently working on a HOT sex scene with Alex and Courtney back at the hotel ringing in the New Year. It all started with an very out in the open kiss at midnight while they were at Antonio's. So - "telephone, telegraph, tell a wrestler" - it will be all over the dressing room by the end of the next night's show at the Cobb County Civic Center in Marietta.

I've also discovered that I think I do my best at home writing curled up on the couch with the netbook with the TV going in the background. Weird, huh? Editing has to be done on the widescreen monitor, but I like to do the first draft on the netbook now.

When and where do you do your best writing?
