Stretching unused muscles

That’s what I feel like every time I start a Synopsis. Like I’m stretching unused muscles. Who knows if they’ll respond like I want them to, or if I’ll strain something and the recovery will be long.

Overly dramatic, you think? Nah. Believe me, that’s mild. Steph couldn’t even stick around because I mentioned the word Synopsis. Sorry, Steph. There it is again.

But I survived the ordeal once again. All the time spent getting my Maggie entry ready just means that I’m behind on my daily writing goals, I have a gazillion crits I owe people and a million doubts about the book I still want to write.

Mason is an acquired taste, or maybe he’s just not everyone’s cup of tea. But I like him and Leilani loves him, despite her best efforts. Return to Paradise will get written.

So why do I have the urge to write another Synopsis? This time for Tyler & Breeana’s story, Caught In The Act. Must be the mental stress from pulling an all-nighter.
