I did something I never do last night. Something wild and wicked. I am such a bad witch.
I ordered desert. Molten Chocolate Cake. YUM!!!
Wizard and I went out to dinner since Broken Leg Boy was at his girlfriend’s house. I had my normal chicken fajita, partly because I like it and partly because it helps me keep my weight where I want it.
But then Wizard asked a sneaky and devious question
“Do you want to get a (alcoholic) drink or dessert?”
I looked up from the dessert menu I was drooling over. “Is this a trick? We never order dessert.” We hardly ever order a drink either, but still…I was confused.
He grinned. “What can I say, you have a way with desserts. Choose.”
And I did–Chocolate Molten Cake. The two of us attacked that cake!
And so it’s official. When we first married, Wizard hardly ever ate dessert. But now I have fully and completely corrupted him. After all, it’s no fun being wicked alone Although I must pay for being wicked tomorrow and cut down a bit.
Now for some updates on what I’m doing professionally.
Two of my author friends are reading Ram’s novella, FORBIDDEN MAGIC for story editing. One of them has said that she’s reading it now and it’s good. Well actually she said, “Jen, this is really good! You’re back!” Which was super cool. For so long I was a little lost, but that’s another blog. I know her, and there will be revision suggestions, as well as suggestions from the other author-friend. Once I do that, I’ve lined up a copy editor and a format person as well. So far–it’s looking like April is doable.
I love this story. Ram has so much depth to him, and it takes a really special woman to even begin to bring that out. And the heroine is different which makes it feel fresher to me. Both of them are special to me. And so are Linc and Eli, and all their stories are a bit interwoven. I can’t wait to get them all written.
And lastly, in between all this, I’m going back to work on the dragons. My synopsis is good, very solid (that’s according to my agent). But the chapters needed work. After all this time away, I looked it over yesterday and have a much clearer view, I think. Hopefully I can do that pretty quickly.
Of course, Broken Leg Boy comes first. We’re entering a new phase now as he begins to working on walking. His recovery is long. More surgeries are very possible. So we take each day as it comes and hope for the best.
