Yes, I’m still using the image of Vincent from my bookmark as inspiration, especially now that sex is definitely in the picture. And turns out he’s such a lover … seductive and slow and sensuous. Mmm, yummy.

So … what did I do this week? Well, I WROTE every single day. There’s a point when I’m working on a book, when I know exactly what has to happen between where I am and where I need to be at the end of the book. This is a great feeling, especially when contrasted with the opposite end of the book, the beginning, when I know my characters, my plot, and how the book ends, but I’m staring down at all those blank pages and wondering how I’m ever going to come up with enough words to fill them up. Fortunately, that moment was long ago for VINCENT and his story is almost told. But that’s because the only thing I’m doing these days is writing. Mind you, I don’t object to all of this because writing is a dream come true, but it doesn’t make for a very exciting blog report. I did watch a TV show or two with the DH, and I did some reading, plus I finally saw Captain America! Yay! I loved it!

I also want to remind everyone that my 5-Year Blogaversary Giveaway is still going on. Entries are pouring in, but there’s still a week to enter. Here are the details …

QUESTION: What is the name of Robbie’s spouse?

And now, I have to get back to VINCENT because I’m hearing the siren song of a completed first draft. Sweet.
