Angelic Forecast from Volcano ~ February 27, 2012

Weekly Angelic Forecast from Volcano

Straight from the Carnal Cherub himself...

Angelic Forecast ~ #182

Kindness as a new way of being emerges for many of us. This is a new level of kindness direct from the now-expanding heart center of human beings.

On a personal level, this means you have more of an opportunity to give and receive kindness. This will be with your loved ones, your family and friends... and with those who are called strangers.

However! Kindness should only be offered to those who truly deserve it, not to simply everyone who happens to cross your path. This is important, and discernment is everything. For, there are those who will eagerly abuse anyone who offers them any manner of kindness.

In opposition to this heart-kindness, the 'dark side' will bring forth, and showcase on the world stage, more acts of horrific cruelty. At this time, these increased acts of brutality will be used as a 'fear factor' to control people, and simultaneously will be proclaimed as necessary by the establishment. This includes, of course, the whole Madison Fifth Avenue move to sell AUSTERITY as something good, rather than what it is, a way to enslave us all.

As a way to intentionally damage the psyche of humanity, 'brutality' will not only be sold as good by the soulless ones -- especially through the popular mythos -- but, THEY will initiate a worldwide campaign of condemnation against what 'they' label as violence.

The strategy of both praising and condemning 'brutality' is a simple case of damned if you do, damned if you don't. This is the schizophrenic mental state 'they' want to create to bring us to our knees, and also use against us.

Their goal is to 'disrupt' the Yin-Yang balance of our natures. In reality, the soulless ones want to destroy the natural masculine side of NATURE, and our very natures as human beings. Included in this strategy is the dark-side's war against the power of women and against 'men as a gender'. Currently our genetics, as a species, are being changed and destroyed by the massive use of endocrine-disrupting chemicals.

This week the demand for freedom rings across the globe. For, the time has come, and the worldwide AWAKENING is here, larger than ever. People are now banding together in their local areas especially, to demand freedom and correct the wrongs being done to them.

Of course, this will mean countermeasures by the bankster gangster crowd. Likely one, or several of their BIG GUNS will be fired against humanity, if not this week, then the beginning of next week.

On the war front, major steps will be taken. However, this is ALL a black-magician's distraction from the REAL steps being taken to control and cull the world population by what has been called the new world order.

On the economic front, all hell, or more hell is breaking loose. Like a series of colossal glaciers ripping free from the Arctic, the economy will keep falling this week despite the 'sunny days are here' analysis given to the public, which is all lies.

On the land changes front, worldwide there will be heightened activity of volcanoes, earthquakes and periods of catastrophic weather for the next several months. Beware and prepare.

Trendwise, it will be all about preparing for the domino-falling economy by those in the know as opposed those who aren't in the know. While currently 'let's look at the celebrities and sports' is entertaining to some, the real action will be about securing a good place for you and your loved ones. And, that is where the new-economy opportunities are, and will be from this point forward.

A resurgence of love as in 'let's fall in love' will be in the air this week. Enjoy it.

Featured Author Stacey Espino

I’m taking a break this week to help a fellow Siren author celebrate her writing anniversary. Stacey Espino (aka Winona Wilder on her M/M books) has been publishing for two years come March, and doing a damn good job, too. I’ve read both shapeshifter and cowboy stories from her, and they steamed up every mirror in my house. The gal knows how to write a lusty love story!

She’s fast, too. We’ve got a forum over on Absolute Write where we trumpet our sales, and if Stacey’s not on there at least once a month I wonder if she hurt her hand or something. And with no drop in quality or entertainment value, either. As soon as I figure out how she does it, I hope to become just as successful.

Anyway, to mark her publishing anniversary, Stacey’s holding a scavenger hunt. All you have to do is look for this:

Well, actually, that’s it. I’m not all that tech-savvy, so I’m not even going to bother trying to hide the icon. This is it. You just found it on the Title Magic site. Consider this one a freebie, and enjoy your Kindle.

That icon will be hidden (better than this one, I hope) at the websites/blogs below starting February 23rd. Send an email with the exact location of the icon from all seven hiding places, along with your name to

The winner will be chosen March 23rd. You can choose a new Amazon Kindle or $100.00 PayPal Cash if you don't need an e-reader.

Good hunting, folks!

And now, Stacey, I believe you owe me a story about M/M shifter cowboys. Specifically, werehorses. One's the rider, one's the ridee. Remember, if you don't write it, I will, and I don't think anyone really wants to see what I'm liable to come up with.

Surrounded By Wolves
Stacey's Latest, now available at

[Siren LoveXtreme Forever: Erotic Paranormal Ménage Romance, M/F/M/M/M/M, werewolves, spanking, HEA]

Cassidy moves out of the only city she's ever known and heads to the distant town of Climax, British Columbia. Her grandfather left her an estate, and she lined up a job in the small mining town.

She arrives and discovers that her inheritance is nothing more than a run-down shack, and the men she's supposed to work with are drop-dead gorgeous. It's impossible to resist the advances of the men in Climax, especially when she's never felt so isolated.

Garret is the foreman of the Gregor Copper Mine, but also alpha to a small pack of wolf shifters. Recent events in Climax have made life complicated—loggers are trying to encroach on their land, one of their pack mates is missing, and their new female dispatcher is a mouthwatering distraction.

When Cassidy is threatened, the men band together, realizing the little human is more important to them than they ever imagined.

Note: There is NO sexual relationship/touching among the men.

A Siren Erotic Romance

“You’re nice and tight, baby doll. Even better than I imagined you’d feel wrapped around my cock.” Having a woman’s bare flesh, moist from lovemaking, pressed against his was something he savored. She smelled like a woman, sweet and feminine—both things he rarely got to enjoy around pack mates and working at the mine. He inhaled deeply at her neckline, tempted to sink his incisors into her flesh.

“What’s the matter?” she asked breathlessly. He’d stopped pumping into her, shocked by his own thoughts. How many females had he bedded over the years? Too many to count. But he’d never had the desire to mate, to mark one of them as his. It must have been due to the territorial threat Evan presented. He still stood to the side, a low growl rumbling from his chest.

“Nothing, darlin’. Do you need it harder? Faster?”


She hugged his shoulders, smoothing her small hands over his back. When she lifted her head off the mattress, seeking a kiss, he turned away. Kissing was an intimacy he avoided. He was sure it would kill him to offer himself in such a way. It was so much easier to just have sex for sex’s sake, no complications, no guilt, no emotion. Rather he sank his head to her neckline and began to fuck her good and hard, his forearms curved under her shoulders. The bed rocked and she cried out with each upthrust.

“Travis…” she cried.

“Bring her to a precipice so I can join in,” said Patrick.

He fucked Cassidy harder, suckling her earlobe and then tonguing her erogenous zone. She was peaking. He could feel her pussy spasm radically around his cock. “Get some bacon fat,” he managed to mutter, trying to keep himself from spending inside her just yet. He wanted this night to last. As difficult as it was to admit it, there was something different about his human girl. Something intangible.

When Patrick returned, he rolled them to their sides, holding one of her legs over his hip to make room for his friend. It would feel immeasurably better having another cock share her body. He could already imagine the squeeze and Cassidy’s cries as she climaxed harder than she ever had.
“Take her pussy from behind, Red. You need it.” He slipped out of her and assisted her to her hands and knees. Travis poked his head under her arm and sucked her swaying breasts as Patrick thrust his ready cock into her pussy, doggy-style. She screamed, a cry of ecstasy, unadulterated pleasure. He slipped away to avoid being crushed by their violent movements.
Evan couldn’t stay away. He climbed onto the head of the bed where Cassidy clenched the bedding in both fists to keep herself grounded as Patrick fucked her like a stallion from behind. Beads of sweat rolled down his face, spilling onto her pale back. Travis watched as the other man licked his finger and then brought it to her nether hole. He held her hip with his free hand and impaled her ass slowly. At first she jolted out of her lust-filled haze and tensed. But Patrick stilled, only pressing further in measured increments. Her breathing became more labored, and her hips swayed as if inviting him to continue.

“Help her out, Evan. Give her something to amuse herself with.”

Evan didn’t hesitate to tilt her chin up. Her wild eyes connected with his briefly, but shifted to the large cock poised near her face. “Will you?” he asked.

She licked her lips and then opened her mouth for him, her body jerking each time Patrick fucked her. Cassidy sucked half his length, supporting one hand on his thigh. Her eyes were closed as she lost herself in the act, engorging herself on Evan’s thick meat.

He kissed her back, admiring the feminine curve, grace, and beauty. Patrick had two fingers deep in her ass as he worked her cunt. She’d accepted the intrusion, no scent of fear lingering around her.

It was time. Travis lay on the bed, his erection waving freely as the bed jostled. Patrick pulled free, continuing to stoke his cock as he knelt on the bed. Evan cupped her head in both hands now that he had her to himself. She shifted her body until sitting on her knees, giving full attention to his cock, the thick length disappearing down her throat and reemerging, over and over.

Weekly Angelic Forecast from Volcano

Straight from the Carnal Cherub himself...

Angelic Forecast ~ #181

Beginning this week the spiritual battle between GOOD and evil escalates, and explodes onto the world scene. There are several ways this 'could' show up. However, right now, the precise events have not been 'completely' set in stone.

Further, this will be a pivotal week for several reasons. Economies will rise and fall. Leaders will rise and fall. And a chain of events begins that will bring down the forces behind tyranny. Although to many, the opposite will appear to be happening. Stay tuned.

On a personal level, this is a wonderful time to begin planning for Spring activities. Even though, there are periods of rough weather ahead, start preparations for what you enjoy doing outside. For many, Spring will be the ideal time to find, then move to a better area and/or home. On a cautionary note, with all the massive fraud problems around foreclosures currently, take extra precautions if purchasing a new place.

Also, with the revolution toward healthy and locally grown foods rising with the speed and power of a phoenix right now, participate however you are able, and look for opportunities to purchase these wholesome foods. Know this is the future. Long term, the current system of food production is breaking down.

The next two weeks will have certain oddities, or unexplained occurrences. This will be on a personal level and on the world stage. These occurrences are meant to make us think and to wake us up to certain 'truths'.

As well, for the following month, the dragon of truth will brutally whip through all of humanity. What was 'not known' will now be brought to the light. For, the time of Light and the Great Awakening is upon us.

This is also a time of mental preparation for all of us. There will be key choices and decisions to be made in the near future, and in the far future. This is because, during these times, CHANGE becomes our constant companion. The very foundations of our world are tumbling down, and fast.

The following week is a tricky one for some. One direction will be appear to be the right one to take. In reality, the opposite direction is the best. Look to your intuition for the answer.

Your intuition, the ability to know and be highly intuitive, will now burst forth like a field of blossoms in Spring. This will occur for humanity as a whole, a new gift from the Divine at this time.

Out of this age of high intuition, following authority figures will lessen dramatically, and many people will now become self reliant. This will generate new business opportunities, ones that may be right for you.

Trendwise, it will be all about 'business' this forthcoming week, and for the near future. That is, the old way of doing things gives way to the 'new' with quickening speed. However, this will likely cut both ways.

Good healthy business practices could be lost, superceded by this generation's ruthless and soulless robber barons. However, for the most part, this is a time that will usher in kinder and more creative ways of doing business. As well, kinder and more creative businesses and services will come into existence.

More and more, it will be about people genuinely helping people by using their talents, skills and smarts. The almighty dollar, as the end-all and be-all, will fall by the wayside, metaphorically speaking.

On a side note: new currencies are being used -- tried and tested. These currencies will be invaluable as we develope good ways to do business with each other.

Love is the centerpiece this week. Kiss and makeup with your romantic partner if there's been a disagreement. Say you're sorry if you've made a mistake or are out of line. Or, if you've been wronged and someone offers you a genuine apology, accept it without reservation. This does not mean, however, playing the fool.

Release Day!

It’s release day! Legacy officially goes on sale today. This is my fifth book with Siren/BookStrand and I’m still jumping up and down like I did with the first one. Like eating chocolate or falling in love, it’s a feeling that never gets old.

I’ve already blogged about several aspects of this one, so here’s the recap: Legacy was a happy accident. I was writing what I thought would be a standalone, Belonging, when I got an idea for a sequel. This book made me stretch my writing muscles, because I’ve never written a ménage before. I got to flex my length muscles and mystery-writing muscles while I was at it as well. A London Werewolf in America was a mystery too, but it wasn’t as long as this one. Plus I got to hang out with Wallace and Jeremy some more, and give them an extra-happy ending in addition to the first one. Given what I put them through, I suppose they had it coming.

I think this is it for the boys, though. Their little flock has been through enough. Time to settle down and raise those kids Colleen always wanted. This isn’t quite the end of this “universe,” however. I’ve got a couple other things I’m working on, but eventually there should be one more story to round out the trilogy. After all, the victims of the vampire conspiracy are still running around out there, and the Preacher isn’t the type of man to let loose ends dangle for long.

And now, the commercial portion of our blog.

Available through


Colleen Brenner doesn’t believe in vampires, until she’s attacked by one. Two men come to her aid: Wallace Hamilton, a slayer, and his lover, Jeremy Teach. The pair take her into their home and under their protection. It turns out vampires have targeted not only Colleen, but all the children from the commune she grew up in. What are the monsters after?

As the three delve into Colleen’s repressed memories, she finds herself drawn to both of the men guarding her. Jeremy is human, but Wallace is a vampire himself, and Colleen’s growing attraction to him is countered by her mistrust of what he is. Then their investigation uncovers a decades-old evil tied to Colleen’s shrouded past. She herself may not be as human as she’s been led to believe. Can their newfound love survive the truth of Colleen’s inhuman legacy, or is it—and Colleen’s soul—doomed?


Balancing the grocery bags, she fumbled the door open. Her psychic prickle clamped down on the greeting she’d been about to call out. Colleen sensed Wallace in the kitchen. If she strained, she could hear faint noises that had nothing to do with pre-dinner prep.

Jeremy’s kitchen, Wallace awake. Easy to add two and two.

Courtesy demanded she leave them alone. She could go upstairs, linger in the shower, and make a ton of noise coming back down. Then she caught Wallace’s growl and decided, screw courtesy. She wouldn’t deny she enjoyed watching them together. Wallace encouraged it, in fact. Freaking undead exhibitionist. With a mischievous smile lighting her face, Colleen set her grocery bags on the floor and crept to the kitchen doorway.

Two pots, a knife, and a bag of carrots lay abandoned on the counter. Colleen’s imagination set the scene—Jeremy at the counter, his back to the doorway, Wallace stalking his unsuspecting prey with his uncanny silent tread. Perhaps Jeremy had a moment of warning before his capture—a hint of scent, a whisper of lips against his neck. Or perhaps he was as attuned to the vampire’s presence as she was and always knew when his lover was near.

They’d ended up beside the kitchen table. Wallace stood behind Jeremy with his arms clasped tight around the human’s waist. His lips nuzzled Jeremy’s neck. Jeremy leaned into the embrace, his eyes shut, humming that low, throaty purr of his that always turned her on. No doubt Jeremy had loosened his shirt collar himself. His enjoyment of the vampire’s attentions made itself boldly known against the fabric of his slacks. Colleen stared at that tantalizing bulge, right up until the moment Wallace bit into Jeremy’s neck.

It wasn’t anything like the violent, melodramatic attacks depicted in vampire movies. His fangs sank into Jeremy’s flesh right over the mark on his neck in a smooth, unhurried movement that was gentle as a kiss. Perhaps this was a kiss to Wallace. His throat rippled with a single swallow before he lifted his mouth. He laved his tongue across the bite, as tender as a mother cat with her kitten. Not so much as a drop of blood escaped it. Jeremy melted against him with a whimper of pure bliss.

Colleen’s gut dropped. This was so wrong in so many ways. Yet everything about Wallace’s actions, even the bite, said love.

Too late, she remembered Wallace could hear her heartbeat.

Weekly Angelic Forecast from Volcano

Straight from the Carnal Cherub himself...

Angelic Forecast ~ #180

Valentine's Day week is a new time of healing for the human heart. That is, love frequencies from the Divine intensify and quicken. This angelic offering is a gift to those of us who give of ourselves because we truly care.

As has been stated before, a new age of the heart has arrived. From the courageous heart of a lion to the gentle heart of a dove -- that is how our hearts and emotions will grow during these times. More and more, we will be able to encompass all shades of love and caring.

This is the week to pay special attention to those who occupy the most special places inside your heart -- the ones you adore. They deserve and need your undivided attention at this time.

Also, this week the dragon of truth rises with a vengeance. With raw and ruthless power, this new dragon writhes and spirals throughout the world, and in our personal lives as well. Be prepared.

Be prepared, not only for this greater level of truth to be revealed, but know it will cause some of humanity to dig deeper into their denial, while others who cannot face these truths will seek refuge in a form of insanity. This will likely result in what occurred during the Great Depression.

Like evil vultures, the soulless ones gather to feed on the carcasses of all those they have destroyed so far with their massive levels of fraud and their Machiavellian manipulation of the world economy. To save themselves from the wrath of the people, they now use both unseen psychological finesse and every type of brute force to maintain excruciating levels of fear.

During the next several weeks, humanity will begin to realize the endless call for 'austerity' is just another name for establishing a robber-baron monopoly over the people of Earth. For, in truth, it is simply a way to force everyone to live in a global company store, a mini version of what occurred in John Steinbeck's novel, "The Grapes of Wrath".

Mother Earth's message to all of us is a plea. For, she does not want austerity. Not for her human populations, not for her abundance of animals, and not for her plant kingdom. Her other message, so she will 'not' perish: if you are able, and as soon as possible, run don't walk to a place in her countryside... a ranch, a farm, anyplace rural that has good water and soil.

Further, on the economic front look for a 'major' propaganda push that says poverty is now good and trendy. On the 'beat-the-war-drum-endlessly' front look for who the 'next' enemy hiding under the proverbial bed is. At this time, every effort will be made to popularize this spoon-fed plot.

There is now an enormous danger confronting the American people on two fronts. The sacred underpinnings of our beloved country is under severe attack. This attack will continue from the so-called leadership until the volume of their combined voices is on high, and their demon-like shrieking becomes a constant demand.

On the second front, think a *possible* nuclear Pearl Harbor event that is meant to galvanize everyone toward another world war. However, there are GOOD forces at work to prevent this particular event from occurring. Prayers are welcome and needed. For, peace is to everyone's ultimate benefit in the Age of Aquarius.

On the beneficial side this week, a strong movement favoring healthy foods takes off with meteoric speed. This means the eventual end of factory farming practices and large chemical-corporate farming. It also means the rise of small local farms, and a greater variety of specialized and heirloom foods.

Trendwise, this will be an interesting week. Following on the heels of last week's trend forecast, what now begins is the rise of the anti-trenders. While this could become a trend unto itself, in this case, the anti-trenders will have far more impact, and, unlike in the past, be much less susceptible to becoming co-opted by the corporate borg entertainment industry.

Remember! Romance is in the air. Inhale the sheer deliciousness of everything romantic. Let your soul sigh with it, and let your heart be fully nourished.

Over on a writer’s forum where I like to lurk, somebody started a discussion about the works of Stephen King. Specifically: which do you like better, his earlier stuff that he wrote while drunk off his ass, or his later works, after he cleaned up his act? A good question, and one which provoked a lively discussion.

For myself, I love his early stuff. We were both decades younger, when weird is appealing, and his doped-out brain came up with some totally full-on crazy stuff that dragged you in and never let go. (Think The Stand and It here.) Then he hit a low period, where he kind of lost his stride (From a Buick 8 sucked big time). He got it back with Duma Key. I like this new mature, sober King. He’s not the batshit-crazy writer he was in his 20s and 30s, but who among us is any more? I still look forward to a King book. I still buy them in hardcover and read through them in about a week or so. These days I can once again close the cover with a sigh of satisfaction, the way I did 30-odd years back.

Then somebody on the forum made a telling point. Say what you will about King’s writing prowess or lack of it, the man keeps writing. Drunk or sober, healthy or in agonizing pain, tanked up on booze or hopped up on pain pills, King has never once stopped writing during the last 40 years.

Let’s examine this. King doesn’t deny his alcoholism. He claims he was so wasted he doesn’t even remember writing Cujo. Somewhere in middle age he straightened out. Things were going fine until he got hit by a careless driver and wound up in the hospital. There followed a long period of recuperation during which he could only find relief from the pain by lying flat on his back on the floor. None of which put so much as a dent in his output. He even published books under a pseudonym (Richard Bachman) at the same time he was publishing as King.

Dig that. There were two of him, and neither one quit writing. Maybe Bachman slowed down a little. King kept plugging away.

There’s a lesson to be learned in this for all of us. Maybe it’s passion for writing, or he’s serious in his pursuit of his career, or obsessed, or compulsive, or just plain flat-out nuts. Doesn’t matter. This is what he does. This is what he is. King is a writer, and ain’t nothing on this earth gonna stop him from putting words on paper.

And you’re going to stand there and tell me you don’t have time to write? Or that you have a stomach ache, or you’re busy, or you’re blocked, or you’re tired, or you just don’t feel like it? I’ve used every one of those excuses on myself, sometimes several at once. Do I feel like a putz right now.

People claim persistence constitutes a huge percentage of success. Here’s the man who’s living proof. Talent and luck do play a part, but without the persistence to keep at it day after day, year after year, you might as well just pack it in.

No more excuses. If Stephen King can write a novel while lying on the floor in excruciating pain, then, by God, I can write a page today.

Be nice if I could also rake in the bucks he’s getting. Maybe that’ll come if I persist.

# # #

And here’s where persistence pays off. Legacy, the book I spent a year farting around on and finally finished, comes out February 16. It’s now available for pre-order at Lots’a vampires, action, angst, and threeway sex. Pick up a copy and make me happy. Pick up the prequel, Belonging, as well and make me ecstatic. End of shameless plug.

Weekly Angelic Forecast from Volcano

Straight from the Carnal Cherub himself...

Angelic Forecast ~ #179

The Age of High Intuition is upon us. Now is the time to open yourself to the blessed frequencies that are assisting humanity in this spiritual transition.

During the forthcoming week and throughout this month of love, you will likely experience your intuition as never before. This will become especially apparent in the mundane moments of your daily life, as opposed to specific times of crisis. However, this is a learning curve which will assist you in being able to use your intuition whenever there is a dire crisis.

This high intuitive state is one way humanity will overcome the heinous acts of the soulless ones, and their minions, the bankster gangsters. As a demonstration of this overcoming, there will be major action taken against the power of the entity known as the Federal Reserve. Most of this 'action' will be kept hidden from the public. However, some of what occurs will be obvious and leaked over time.

Because of this slow-motion fall of the leviathan monopoly system, there will be tremendous turmoil in every sector of society. THOSE who despise humanity will do everything and anything to bring us all to heel, and beneath their jackboot heels. Out of this, defiance against the system will only grow and become an unstoppable force.

This 'unstoppable force' can be guided toward bringing about the best for all of us on Earth. Or, if this is not done, then the ensuing chaos will be like demons unleashed. Remember, it is always wise to prepare for any kind of emergency, and the upcoming storms of life.

At this point in time, sightings of otherworld ships, and contact with so-called extraterrestrials and inter-dimensionals will escalate for those who are truly unafraid. Since the benign galactic races no longer deal with any major government on Earth, they have been searching for ways to help humanity by making contact with individuals.

On a personal level, this is the perfect week to begin group projects or to fulfill group projects. This could be with a social group or a business group, or with any like-minded group you belong to.

This week is also about LOVE. To be specific, the more you express the love inside your heart, the better your week will be in ways you never thought could happen.

As the dragon of light and the dragon of darkness battle for supremacy great tribulation now occurs worldwide. The war drums beat nonstop, and the message is: 'only' annihilating every designated enemy will now save us. However, as was stated previously, the real war is being fought over 'who' will control the Antarctic and the Arctic.

To counter the shouts for war, more 'hidden truths' will rise like a horde of phoenixes. As well, miracles of every kind, from small to magnificent, will increase dramatically across our world. As these miracles are noticed, this will bring about more miracles. These glorious and shining events will benefit all of humanity, and help our beloved Mother Earth.

On the economic front, the plot thickens, and it will be realized by many that the thickening, stinking mud of fraud could fill up the Grand Canyon. Sadly, most of us will be slogging through fraud we didn't create, never wanted, and didn't agree to.

Trendwise, now begins a type of civil war between the establishment entertainment industry and those of us who are the true creative talents. Despite every effort to stop it, the real cream begins to rise. This means a sharp dividing line will develop between those who follow the popular celebrities/trends, and those who prefer the new renaissance trends in art and entertainment.

Smiles from the heart are your ticket to happiness this week.

Stealth Inspiration

Sometimes I hate my brain. Whenever I need it the most, like when edits come in or on blog-posting day, it either freezes up on me or starts reminding me about all the other stuff that needs to get done, like laundry or the dishes or that fire on the stove that just burned lunch, and now I not only need to clean the kitchen, I have to go to the store. I have a PhD in procrastination. As long as I jog along Put-Off Drive, my brain is more than happy to cooperate.

Sometimes, though, the evil bastard chooses to throw me a curve. I’ll be working away (finally!) at my WIP of choice when all of a sudden my muse goes ninja and a new idea hits me out of nowhere. If the WIP is giving me grief and no deadlines are involved, this can be a blessing. I suspect it happens because Mr. Brain is bored or tired of having to wrestle with the same plot points for months on end (I write really slow) so it comes up with something new to amuse itself, and distract me from my regular work in the process. The bitch.

One time nasty Mr. Brain nearly screwed me bad. I was working on a legitimate book when the muse suddenly decided she wanted to write fan fiction. Normally I wouldn’t mind, but I like getting paid for my writing—money really comes in handy when bill time rolls around—and you don’t get paid for fanfic. So I tried to stick with the “real” writing, but it was a helluva struggle. The other plotlines kept intruding, to the point I could barely focus on the paying project. I ended up writing several scenes longhand just to work it out of my system. The compulsion ran about three weeks before it finally faded.

Some good did come out of the experience: the fanfic led me into writing a legitimate book with original characters, which I did end up getting paid for. The longhand pages I scribbled in a white heat of creative fury are currently sitting in one of my many spiral notebooks, a wealth of concepts waiting to be mined for future original works.

I’m going through a similar situation now. I’ve been working off and on on a M/M shapeshifter story. Parts of it are fine, other parts need help. I guess Mr. Brain got tired of my farting around, because another plot I’d been toying with came bursting out of my subconscious like Venus from the sea foam and shouted, “Write me! Write me now!” So now I’m working on that one while the shifters take a break. Maybe the respite is what the story needs. Guess I’ll find out, unless Mr. Brain waylays me again with yet another bright idea. Sometimes I wish it would steer me into an easier profession, like heart surgery. A writer’s life is never dull.
