'A' is for Addiction


So my writing break lasted all of two days.

That’s willpower right there.

I’m sure there’s a twelve step program out there with my name on it.

Anyway, I have a sneaky suspicion that my writing is about as subtle as a hammer to the head (hence the overuse of plot devices in my last submission) so I am currently learning the art of subtlety in plot construction.

Sadly, it’s not as easy as it sounds. Why? Because I’m a closet drama queen (it’s amazing what you will discover from editorial feedback…). I’m rational by day, but give me a new word document and… well, I’ll probably set someone on fire…

Power crazed? Moi?

So I’m trying to tone down my current WIP but I have to admit that it’s one of those subconscious bad habits that is going to take a little while for me to stomp out. Let’s hope that my heroine’s martyr tendencies disappear with it…

I’m sure the overachiever in me will pick up some more bad habits in the meantime…

Is anyone else battling a case of the dreaded BHs?
