CCLaP

I've been reading Jason's site for more years than just about any other personal site on the whole wide internet and over the last few years have been watching with interest as his business plans for launching an art's centre in Chicago have evolved.

Well the first phase of the centre is a reality now - complete with a very funky web site that everybody should check out. And, because he's a sweet guy, he's put up one of my stories.

Progress... what progress?

Lately, I've done next to no work on my novel. Poor neglected baby. This has been due to a number of things - being sick, having assignments to do for my writing course, social obligations - but the main reason, I'm starting to think, is that inner fear. I've reached a point where I have to add in a chapter to the middle. I know what I want this chapter to do but I don't know the details. I think the only way out is through, as they say so I need to bite the bullet and get writing.

The other problem I'm having is that I need to edit a couple of steamy sex scenes. Do you have any idea how difficult it is to write about sex when sex is just a distant memory? Blerk... I used have listened to that "write what you know" advice a bit more carefully. I think the Virgin Mary would be more familiar with the workings of human genitalia at the moment.
