Blogger's Block

Ah, another blank blog page to fill. You wouldn't think it would be that hard for a writer, but perhaps what I'm experiencing is blogger's block! Whoa! think I just coined a phrase there.... but perhaps I'm not the first. This blog will ramble, because that's what I do when I'm blocked. I just keep writing. You're seeing the process right here in black and white, I think. See, now I've changed the color! Might stimulate some brain cells. Though, as it happens, I prefer blue. Songs have been known to help when I'm writing romance novels, but blogging is another story altogether! A good, sexy man might help, let's see...whoops! There he is!!!! He turned me rather green with envy for whoever gets to....well....do ANYTHING with him! I found him a while back and have been looking for a place to use him. Helps to have a stable of studs to help you out, don't you think? My hero!!!!
I think I'll use this nice lavender for a while. Sort of romantic, don't you think?
You see, there's a spot on a man that just DOES something to me. That place just above his belt loop. Don't know why, just like it for some reason. He has other good qualities, too, and I think he would make a good Zetithian--he's already almost got the eyebrows. Not too beefy, more cat-like. Yeah, he's perfect. Cover of Lover, here we come!
As it happens, I'm in the process of rewriting Lover. Lynx, the main character, needs a friend, I think. Perhaps a Norludian, or a Twilanan. I just love coming up with weird species names. That's one of the fun things about SciFi, you can do anything you want. If I want a woman with a snout like a rhino, I can do that. The only limit is my imagination, which sometimes seems to have no limits. It's the best mental exercise there is, and so many people don't use theirs. Very sad, I think, but I guess that's part of my job as a writer: I stimulate the imagination for them.

See, not blocked anymore at all!

  5. Hey, I understand completely. Sometimes the only way to break a block is with a sledgehammer!

  6. Still drooling over the pic, and yes that is a very nice place on a man. And sensitive too --- er I'm told.

  7. Most definitely my favorite place too Cheryl! But oh... now I'm all excited for Lover.

    Maybe Mr. Hunky there could be a Norludian or a Twilanan with a little paint and cosmetic surgery? ;) Lynx's friend doesn't have to be unattractive does he/she?

  8. Sorry, Rhi,
    But once you've read Rogue, you'll understand more about Norludians. They creep Jacinth out, if that tells you anything!
    Twilanans are the ones with the rhino snouts.
    Might have to make up another species to be Lynx's friend. Hmmmm....gives me an idea.....

  9. LOL! Christina! I think this guy falls into the sledgehammer category, don't you think?

  11. Love the post, Cheryl! At first, I was all "Ooh, pretty colors," because I'm kind of easily distracted by colors and shiny objects. Uh, yeah, it's pretty sad, I know. Then, however, my attentions were redirected by the hottie who really, really just needs to slide those jeans the rest of the way off. The spot you mention...it's very nice on this guy. Yum. Please, please do not give him a rhino snout. Or pants:-)
