Diamond in the clique rough

I have a naughty muse (Starred is my erotic muse,) and lately she has wanted to come out in my paranormal and horror writing. 

So if I feel the scene is going naughty I will write the scene twice. I write erotica faster than my therapy writing lately. So I have both scenes. It helps for word counts in nanowrimo and keeps me busy. 

I found a section in one of my naughty scenes. . . (The scene is between Lucy and Lyric fooling around when they are both taken.) I know this line sounds generic and clique but it sounded good to me. 

“She needed him–she knew he needed her. She wanted him and didn’t want to give him back. She secretly and denabliy believed that if she gave him everything he wanted, that he would feel the same way for her. ”

I felt like my paranormal writing is slowly turning into a clique romance writing. What kills me is that the guy is not the same in reality that is in her head. (But the be honest, is it ever?) She wants love, but he knows she will do anything (including naughty stuff) to keep the idea of him. He uses this to his intimate and sexual advantage. 

I should add a ghost to the scene, but then I start to wonder if I add too much paranormal does it build or cut storyline?

I probably should add something to make more showing and less telling

My brain never stops and my muses are always evolving.

All situations can be written. . .

I was stood up Saturday instead of just waiting for two hours, I outlined part 2 for my book. (Yes, making the best of my anxiety, time, and my Nanowrimo prep.)

So I waited hours for the bozo to not show, and I was frazzled. What made it worst was when I gave him a chance after he begged for it, and I told him it would NOT work with the distance. Then after two hours of waiting, saying he was going to be there, he texts me saying: it‘s not working for me

No crap!

So what do my muses do? They nag me to write about it, and put it my novel I am working on.  3350 words later I have a scene to add into my story.  I know it’s before nanowrimo but I wanted to write while all feelings were fresh in my head. The migraine was worth the Saturday night of writing. 

Thank you . . . Muses (in no particular order )

Introducing to my characters. . . 

These are the main character to both my books:

The Whispering Path 

 The Broken Path. 

Lucy is the main character. . . Yes, story involves around her. She has a gift and curse. . . She is a ghost whisperer. She can communicate with the dead and sometimes they are nicer and more grateful than the living. She is trying to find her place in this world, but things always seem to get complicated. 

Valin is her complicated half boyfriend, half friend, but full drama king. He always seems to find trouble, even when not looking. At first, he liked how she allowed him to be himself, but his obsession such as ghost hunting and dealing with different spiritualities, change him. (He is drawn more to his own dark side. He has used Lucy’s gift to get attention.)

Lyric is her crush and first half boyfriend. He is there more when it’s convenient for him. He knows she is crazy about him, and uses it to his advantage. He; however, trusts Lucy more anyone. They have a bound with the paranormal after his first girlfriend Daisy died while he and she were in high school. He is the very moody artist type who puts alot of his feelings in his art, drugs, alcohol, and sex. 

Paige is Daisy cousin who looks similar to Daisy and pulls in Lyrics interest, but then he gets flustered when she doesn’t act like her cousin. He feels if he leaves her, he will leave Daisy. She knows he is in love with Daisy and since she had a crush on him when she was younger, she uses her cousins similar looks to her advantage. They stray apart,  but stay together for their kids. 

Verona is wife to Vincent. They were together since high school, and neither one seen themselves with anyone else. Verona dated Valin first, but then meet his friend Vincent and the rest was history. She gets off having sex in public.

Vincent was madly in love with Verona at first sight of her thigh high black boots and gothic look. He loves the fact that she is into everything he is drinking, weed, ghost hunting, watching sports drunk, parties, and lots of sex. Vincent and Verona are always in Valin house and store more than their own. 

Autumn Lucy’s ex best friend high school. She put drama, gossip, and boys over her best friend. They parted and Autu,n got pregnant her senior year. They have not looked at things the same afterwards. 
Why I say half boyfriend’s? I feel that the relationships she has with both Lyric and Valin are not complete. Valin is more complete  than she is with Lyric, but secretly she wants Lyric more.

Setting up for Nanowrimo yay!

Last year I did not get to finish my Nanowrimo do to some mental issues I was having. (I was living with people who didn’t believe in my writing career and said I wrote too much. They didn’t understand me and it killed my self esteem. I was a shell of a person, and I was running in a robotic mode. Now I’m finally feeling like my writing self.)

So this year I am doing two projects since right now all I have is time. 

Each giving both goal of 50,000 word by November 30, 2017. That means 100,000 words.

In order to reach such goals. I’m working on extreme set up. . . Detailed chapter outlines for one and detail and character specific outlines for the other. 

They are both parts of the same project. It’s a paranormal project of ghost whisperer. One part is all of the stories of the ghosts  she encounters and the other is of the drama of her life. 

I have two accounts https://nanowrimo.org/participants/rebekahwolveire is working on my word account for my ghost stories.

https://nanowrimo.org/participants/rebekah1213 is the account working on my storyline. The Broken Path. 

Autocorrect: yay or blah? 

It’s been over 6 months and I can’t get my damn computer yet. .  . Grrrrrr. 

So my generous and patient mom let’s me use her tablet. I love writing stories and blogs like this, but the thing that flutters me more than helps me is the damn autocorrect. 

It’s more with chatting than blogs, but it’s horrible.  . . I finish typing a word and corrects it as if I don’t know what I am saying. I’m still wondering how it got the word Hitler from my typing the word bible?

I know I can turn if off, but this is not my tablet and it may help others, but it just flutters me. 

Unless you are in my head autocorrect, do not change my words, damn it. Besides, you do not want to be in my head. 

I know if I was editing my bigger written pieces, autocorrect  would make me go insane. 

. . .

The Ellipse ( . . . ) is usually used sparingly in novels in spacing stories in dialogue. It’s basically means to be continued or to make a long story, short etc.
I also hear that when using text/dialogue and you do not want to use the entire quote, you add the . . .
When you want to omit something that doesn’t need to be there, such as too many details, you can add. . .
However with blog writing people use it more often and I have noticed that people have complained in groups about it. I will admit I use it, probably more than I should, but I use it for emphasis. . . I want people to use it as a pause.  I use to have people pause and think about my idea. (Please do NOT think about how I broke some writing rule.)

The reason I am posting this blog is that I want people to know, yes I know the rules of writing. However to find my style of writing AKA my voice, I think sometimes you have to break or bend some writing rules.
