Sympathy for the Devil

I kicked ass yesterday! I just wanted to share that. Really great writing session, I was so excited to finish out an integral scene that I’ve been missing for a long time.

I need to finish up this book quickly because I got another idea for a story today while I was out on my walk. I’m not sure if it will be a short story or not, I have tried not to dwell on it too much. I think I’m just addicted to the idea phase. When everything comes so quickly that I can’t even get it on paper fast enough. So now I have two stories that don’t belong there kicking around in my head while I try to write the first one. Good thing I like to multitask?

I haven’t had much time to read lately which I’m bummed about. I’ve been reading this one book (which is not that long) for about two weeks now. I read a few pages a day but nothing more.  I guess one of the real problems is that I’m lacking motivation to finish the book. For some reason I have sympathy for the “bad guy” and I just know it’s not going to turn out well for him. Why do I have sympathy for him? Well that’s a good question that I don’t have an answer to. I guess because he’s the cuckolded husband who aside from being narcissistic seems almost like an ok guy. I’m sure he was narcissistic when she married him so the problems in their marriage really can’t all be blamed on him anyway! I’ve also never really understood the whole idea of cheating on your significant other.  I mean why not just get divorced? Especially when she’s now the sole bread winner. It just can’t get on the heroine’s side on this one. I mean it sucks that her husband wants to kill her and that’s going a bit far, but really she did at least deserve some serious yelling at.
