I did so much writing and feel so brain dead as a result of it that I almost forgot to do today’s Diary entry! Luckily for me I didn’t forget, because somehow I’ve managed to keep this thing going day after day for…I don’t even know how long now. (I’m doing this entry from my phone, and I don’t want to risk losing what I’ve written to check)
This Diary has lasted longer than most of my relationships! 😄
Anyway, I spent most of the day working on Qedesha (which my phone just tried to autocorrect to Wednesday) and researching the Middle East religious figures of around 500 BC. Mainly Astarte and the beliefs of her followers. Very interesting. Of course, learning all this spurned me on to smooth out the rough draft and add a ton more, but also caused me to reevaluate the ending.
I’m not happy with it. It needs more. Something different.
And I need to sex up the sex scenes a bit more too (apparently Astarte’s followers were some freaky folks!) to truly do them justice.
At the end of the day, however, I’m a very happy writer, especially since tomorrow I get to submit Erotic Urban Legends (at full price) to Amazon and rip it off of Smashwords.
Now if I could just find a way to end Qedesha with a twist…
Any suggestions? 😏
