Quick drive by post to say that I’ve got an interview up at Fierce Romance (a big thanks to Nicole!). I’m also continuing to visit with the always awesome Ali–hmmm…did I mention she was giving away lots of books?

And…HOTTER AFTER MIDNIGHT  is available for pre-order on Amazon! Yay!!!

A writer’s worst enemy…

Twelve days of Writing

Day Five:  Procrastination

Oh, yeah, procrastination is the devil. It can kill a career so quickly. Why? Well, if you don’t write because, oh, say, you have to wash clothes or watch that show on television or clean the floors (yeah, I’ve done that one before), you will never get a book written–and thus will not have a writing career.

It is so easy to procrastinate. And so very tempting.

And you know what? Hell. I’m doing it right this minute. Procrastinating. I’ve got a book waiting on me. Actually, I’m in the process of fleshing out ideas for a trilogy that I want to write–after I finish the project I’m currently doing. Time to get my butt in gear. No matter what you may have heard other authors say, those books really don’t write themselves!

I love Ali. She’s sweet, gorgeous, smart–and a huge book lover.

I mentioned previously that I’d be guest blogging over at Ali’s place, but I didn’t mention this–Ali is giving away a ton of books by yours truly this week. Wanna win? Then hop over and check our her blog!

Writing: The Highs

Posted in Romance on December 4th, 2007 by Cynthia Eden

Twelve Days of Writing

Day Four: The Highs

Yesterday, I hit briefly on the lows of writing–namely, those dang rejections. Today, I want to talk about the good parts of writing–and there sure are a lot of ’em.

Here are some of my writing highs:

1. Getting to forget about the problems in my daily life–and getting to create a brand new world

2. Getting to finish a scene. Then a chapter. Then the end of the book–oh, jeez, but there is nothing like finishing the draft of a book. When you type out all of those pages and you see the physical proof of your work, well, to quote one of those credit card commercials, “Priceless.”

3. Getting an acceptance from a publisher. Wow–time to take out the chocolate. (Oh, who am I kidding? I’ve always got chocolate out and ready.)

4. One of the biggest highs for me: Walking into a bookstore and seeing my book on the shelf. I will never get over the thrill of seeing one of my books on a bookstore shelf. Oh, and speaking of the store shelves…guess what I saw recently?

5. Getting a letter/email from someone who enjoyed my work.   I am so excited when I get a note from someone who enjoyed my work. And, actually, here is a little trivia note about me:  I’ve gotten the most mail regarding The Vampire’s Kiss.

6. Getting a great review. I try not to let negative reviews bother me (different strokes for different folks, after all),  but I have to confess that a good review always makes me smile.

7. Finding a reference to my book that I didn’t expect…let me tell you what I mean. I discovered last night that A RED HOT NEW YEAR is listed as one of the “Hot Reads for Chilly Nights” on the myLifetime blog site, Michelle Buonfiglio’s Romance b(u)y the book. 

There are really so many writing highs…the thrill of a scene that really works. The joy of a happy ending. The satisfaction of a good plot twist. So many highs…and that’s why I write.

For the writers out there…do you have any writing highs that you’d like to share?

(By the way, since it’s Tuesday, I’m blogging over at The Bradford Bunch today, too.)
