Like I needed this. Damn you Athena.

Another book.  Yeah, I know.  Don't exactly need another distraction from current secret project.  But this one.  This one came fully formed, like Athena bursting forth from Zeus' head, fully grown, armed for battle and with a war cry on her lips.  And it's good people, really frackin' good.  And unique.  Like, horrific dark, gothic, erotic . . .  That's all I'm saying.  It gives me goosebumps and freaks me out in a creepy-crawly way.  

Kind of weird that I've creeped myself out.  And that I like it.  Hmm.  

Off to write notes, maybe even a proposal.  (Okay, so I already have the first ten pages done).  Heh.  Yanno, just to get it all out while it's fresh.  Bad form to ignore the muse when she plays Hephaestus, cleaves your head in two and makes a book come out . . .

I love you and your darkness. It could certainly not be the euphuistic prose of the fates that Hera, wife of Zeus, hath visited your dreams and spurred the instantaneous growth of this zygote soon to be wrenched out upon your pages in an ink filled birth. No, no, not with Kelly... it's all blood and guts. ;)

LOL, Beck. Only blood and guts some of the time. ;-)

Embrace the inner goddess! Take notes, even if you can't get to that story immediately. I have two books started, and notes and ideas for probably a half dozen more. Ideas are good things!!!

Now if I can only find time to write them. Hmmmm....

That is awesome. And Athena is my favorite goddess. Far better her than Aphrodite where she'll run off to the next available author as soon as look at you. Look after your goddess well.

hehehe. Yeah, I guess it is only some of the time. But still, such action packed violence in that head splitting scene described!
