My Brain Is Going To Explode

For some reason, my creative muse has decided to drop a whole lot of story ideas into my poor overworked brain this week. Luckily, after a long talk with Dusty I managed to work out one major snafu the rewrite on Beta Testing would have had, and managed to make it even better. (Thanks, love.) I've also gotten an idea for a set of sexy demons/angels and a plot about a sorceror who is dying to find true love to add to the Halle Pumas and the Gray Court series I have planned. And I think there might be something else percolating back there, too. Something to do with Loki having gotten a bum deal...

Thank God I have a PDA, or I'd never get this stuff down. Gah!

Beta Testing is back up around seven thousand words. It got chopped, again, down to a little under three thousand, but I'm slowly adding stuff back in that still fits with the new plotline. Hopefully I'll be able to have it out to the beta readers in about two or three weeks, and then off to Angie for a final yea/nay. After that I'm setting the Pumas aside for a bit of a rest and playing with some elves.

Now I just need to add about eight hours, uninterrupted by toddlers, to write! No problem!
