If it ain't broke...
Especially after last week's episode of Vampire Diaries.
So far this year, I've selected a Swedish soccer player (who, let's face it, just looked good), Mark Salling (of Glee) and Bret Michaels (80s rocker) - and none of them had the ability to kick start my writing.
Ian never fails. Never.
Not only have I not written scarcely a word this past month, I've barely read. In fact, I've only completed ONE book in 2011, which is a far cry from my goal of 75.
Damon Salvatore, er, Ian, is going to help me this week.
My TBR pile is well stocked, including a few sequels to series I started in 2010. I'm finally going to finish off Melissa Marr's faery series (one of my fave writers having discovered her in 2010), and a few of my stand-by authors - Lee Child, Steve Berry, Sandra Brown - have new books on the shelf that I'm itching to read.
I know that reading fuels writing, but it's likely Ian will get all the credit. After a pretty emotional Vampire Diaries last week, I figure he could use a bit of distraction. I'm more than happy to provide it.
