WAH - I'm upset now, there I was, just writing a scene from my novel and all of a sudden my main char's love interest got into a situation where she had to kill him (in a nice loving way of course) so she's all upset now, and me too! I wasn't expecting that. It's made a right mess of my plans for him in later chapters but does sort out the problem I've been having as to why she is so mad about things. ;D

I feel like a murderer!

Is glad he has strong teeth or lifting the bottle this way would hurt!>


Count on you to find a way.   8)

Just realized I go into work later than usual tomorrow.  That plus the fact that I had my X sitting in my living room for about 3 hours this evening entitles me to a nice drink I believe.  Not that I feel I need a reason, but when one presents itself . . .

Excuse me a minute.  I think I hear a glass calling my name.

Characters taking things into their own hand can be a problem at times.  Drat Them!

But at least she cleared up on problem for you in doing so.

Does he have a twin, or just a regular brother or cousin that can take his place for the later bit?  Or maybe she didn't want the later bit you had planned and this was her way of letting you know.

Whatever, I'm sure you'll figure it out Paul.  Just glad I'm not the one with blood on my hands.  ;)

Depends on whether it's a bad hate-em X or a sad but it was over X really. Actually it doesn't from the drinks front ;D

I think she's got a bit of a crush on an older guy she's helped out a couple of times. She DID have to kill him though as a hell-thingy was tearing his soul to bits, the only way to get it off him was to kill him. She's very, very mad at the hell thingy. Just in the thick of writing a torture session. Poor ol' hell thingy!

Short version of long story:

There was and is a lot of good in him - There must be since I married him twice, also divorced him twice.  But the two of us get along much better at a distance than up close and personal.  Too many differences and we're both bull-headed.  

PS Bull-headed = Stubborn to the ninth degree.  Also known as muleish or mule-headed.  

He's also extreremely nosey and tends to tell everyone how they should be living their lives.  Oh well, I rarely have to deal with him now.  Except for the fact that he is living with one of my sons rather than with any of his own children.  

I would say "Don't get me started" but I see I've already started.  So I'll put the brakes on and come to a skidding halt.  

Bigger problem.  I've been surfing the tv channels looking for a good, old fashion vampire story.  You would think at this time of year the tv would be flooded with them.  But No.  

What is this world coming to?

Sounds intriguing. 

Counting the minutes, hours or days until I can read what you are talking about.   :)

Can't wait to read it myself - it keeps shocking me! Talk about not having a clue what's going on - it's really true for authors!  ;D

Which reminds me, I need to see what Wilcaren has been up to while my back's been turned.  He was being rather stubborn the last time around, so I left him to cool his heels a bit. 
Maybe tomorrow - not really in the mood tonight.
