Gah, the pressure… #TuesdayThoughts with Doris (@mamaD8)

Hello, lovely peeps, Doris here with just a short post, as I’m literally feeling the pressure.


Entirely self-inflicted too, but we have our son’s wedding coming up on Saturday, which means I’ll be pretty much out of this writing thing for three days.

I want to have my current WIP finished by Thursday at the latest so that I can relax at the wedding and forget about it. That’s a total of 13 K I have to write in three days.

Doable, yes certainly, even if I do look like this.


Oh, the joys! I should add that the kids are off on their school hols (I wrote a sex scene yesterday while listening to my youngest bashing about his bedroom, next door to me, killing baddies – he was Batman).

Not quite the inspiration I needed for this particular scene….

Add to that last minute errands to run, and the general UN peace keeping duties having the kids off entails, and yeah.

Still, I will do it. I must.

I left my heroine ogling a half naked Logan, and well… such a hardship. This is the hunk Logan is based on, Adan Gonzales. I think he works rather well for my bad boy CEO 😉


What do you think?


Logan 1

Right, I best get back to writing and getting them to their HEA.

Stay naughty, folks.

You should be writing! #TuesdayThoughts with Doris (@mamaD8)

Hey peeps, Doris here with a very short and sweet post today, as I really shouldn’t be here at all. I’m on a tight deadline. Nothing like a bit of pressure to get the fingers flying and all that.



For once I know the story. Heck, I have a synopsis and everything….

*passes the smelling salts*

Yes, I know, unheard of, but necessary for this particular submission process. I’m waiting to hear back on a first chapter and just in case the powers that be will want more…. well, I kinda need the rest of the story, right?

Hence the deadline.

I tell myself I work well under pressure…. yeah, right… erm…

So, with that in mind, I best get off here and crack on. I left my hero with a severe case of blue balls and the heroine has just turned up, so there is a whole lot of different pressure going on.



Erm right, that’s my cue.

(Incidentally, Rhett Butler, so wonderfully portrayed by Clark Gable here, was the first literary hero I ever fell in love with.)



Eeek, def going now!

*catches one last glimpse of Idris*

Stay naughty, folks!
