Weekly update

So now, when I do find time to write, I am juggling two projects.

The old one: I have over 200 pages of it but it needs a lot of work and I am a bit worried that it doesn't fit into any reader's expectations, so I will probably take my time with this one.

The new one: about one-third done, and much more ...well not really explicit but let's say adventurous. I'm having some fun trying to do this, though a lot of it is that teenage girl twittering (or teenage boy smirking) about some of the things I'm trying to do with the characters. But I think I have come up with the right sort of compromises, so that it fits in with the other Dr.Wrighting books AND satisfies readers who want a bit more risque content. My husband is having fun with it too, since he's the one who has guided me through what the characters need to do. He's the sex-advice man. Sex-description advice. No, not so much description, but telling me who-what-where-when. I'm not totally comfortable with all the ideas, but I think I'm close to a balance between telling a story and offering some ...thrills? It's much harder to write than I thought. I'm incapable of doing just sex, and when there's any sort of story it's hard to get sex into the narrative flow. It still needs a lot of work too, so it'll probably be a few months before I can publish. I hope my readers aren't too impatient, and I hope it will be worth the wait!
