Finished ISY at 25,340

Book blindsided me. My two leads were just talking, dammit. Talking. And the next thing I know, they’re ripping each other’s clothes off in the kitchen and having their way with each other. Something that I hadn’t planned to have happen for another fifty pages or more. Minimum.

But — damn. Sometimes the characters get cooking, and all you can do is hang on to your hat and hope they know what the hell they’re doing.

    Great. That’s out of the way, they can get back to work, then. 😉

    Yah, I like to occasionally let my characters cut loose. Sometimes they don’t bother to wait for permission.

    As for what happens the rest of the book — well, frankly, I was a little worried about where all the hot and bothered stuff was going to fit. There is so very MUCH other stuff.

    always strange when the characters start momentarily writing the book but from reading LGD
    you’re not too bad when it comes to writing smut 😛
