My husband convinced me to buy some novel writing software today. We will see if it's any good. It's coming from the UK, so I'm thinking it will be here in two or three weeks. I have notes scattered willy nilly all over my laptop for the series of three books I plan to write. I'm hoping the software will help me keep things straight and make the actually writing process easier. Scenes come in snipits in my mind, in no particulate order and I jot these down as fast as I can.

So while I wait, I guess I'll start writing my Spike/Buffy fan fiction. It won't be as long as my first non-spuffy story. I'm thinking seven chapters at the most. I have a plot idea and the first scene in my head. I just need to spend some time watching season five again, so I get all my facts straight. That's just such a hardship. I haven't watched season five in a long time.

Buffy episodes I can and do watch over and over are: School Hard, the second half of Becoming, Halloween and Lover's Walk and Something Blue. My favorite episode without Spike is Band Candy. When Snyder says, "Wow Summers! You drive like a spaz." Cracks me up every time. And Giles begging Buffy to hit Ethan: "You're my slayer. Go knock his teeth down his throat." I have watched all of season six and season seven over many many times. Of course I love OMWF and Tabula Rasa.

So I know what will happen. I'm going to end up watching season five and not be able to stop and will have to watch all of six and seven too.

We were able to come back to our house this morning. The older three kids are at school and the two younger ones are playing nicely. My A/C in now working. I don't know how long it will work, but we have a few more hot days to go in this heat wave. I NEED it.

I was able to get some real work done and I spent a long time this morning in my workshop packing merchandise and printing shipping labels. I'm glad to work at home, but sometimes its hard to get motivated. Until the bills come in.

I printed out my fan fiction for my mom to read while we were out at her place trying to keep cool. She suggested the title "A Perfect Fit." I think for now I will go with that title. She loved it by the way. Of course, being my mom, she had to be nice to me. Mom is retired and she reads romance novels and some mystery novels. She can read one and half books a day. Her favorite author is Nora Roberts. I got my love of reading from her, but she doesn't write. She will watch episodes of Buffy with me when I am at her place, but she doesn't like the Angel series at all. I force her to watch it with me when season five is on, though.

My internet was down for about 24 hours, so I used that time to finish my fan fiction.  The last chapter turned in to two chapters so the final chapter count is nineteen.  I'm glad to be done and I'm sad to.  That was a lot of fun.  Now its editing time.  My first chapter is not back from my beta yet, but as soon as its back and fixed, I'll post it here.

I would still like to have  second beta.  Especially to help with all things in the Buffy and Angel verse. 

My laptop battery charger is acting funny.  I may have to replace it before I can work on reading and fixing mistakes on those. 

I didn't think I could get it done today.  I was having so much fun writing Angelus, that the words just kept coming.  

There will only be one more Chapter.  I did let Harmony wraggle her way into the story one last time.  She's not my favorite character.  I tried not to bash the poor girl, but maybe a beta could help fix it so its a little nicer.  I have to thank her for making the story a little more fun and exciting than what I had planned.  

I am hoping to be able to have the last chapter done by Thursday.  My husband has the day off tomorrow to work on our home business, but we did plan to spend some time together.  He always comes before Spike.

My husband's a little younger, by three years, his eyes are more blue and his hair is naturally blond.  They are about the same height, but I'm the same height as SMG, so I still have to look up to him.   He tolerates my obsession of all things James, but he always comes first.

Well I thought that I would have my current story finished today.  I don't think that's going to happen.  It was the first day of school for my kids yesterday.  I have 5 kids and 3 of them are school age.  They were so excited that they couldn't sleep.  So the time I usually spend writing was spent with my kids.

My other problem is that I had things planned out a certain way, but one of the characters keeps imposing themselves into the story in my mind.  They want back into the story and they want to cause some mischief.  It will make for some fun, but it will also make the story a little longer.

I wonder if that happens to other writers?  Where a story just comes alive in the mind to the point that the characters just take over and do whatever the hell they want..  Maybe that's how Joss felt when Spike became so popular with the fans that he had to continue with him.  

So now I'm procrastinating.  Because I'm going to have to work out the details of this character getting by people and past a locked door.
