Writing and Obstacles

by Chloe Neill on 8 February 2016

I love this quote by Kay Gardiner of Mason-Dixon Knitting:*

“I do not contemplate clever ways to overcome an obstacle if I have the option of groaning softly, putting my head down, and waiting for the discomfort to pass.”

The post is about sweater construction, but the quote really resonated with me.  I tend to procrastinate when I’m anxious about writing (currently, tricky edits), even on my seventeenth (!!) novel.

The novel will get turned in, and it will get turned in on time. The rest, really, is just waiting for the discomfort to pass.

xoxo, Chloe

Is he a shifter?

by Chloe Neill on 29 January 2016

We’re discussing Ethan, Liam, Jonah, and their real-life lookalikes on Facebook, and Barb S.-J. suggested Brock O’Hurn was a good model for Gabriel.

Not bad, I think. Not bad at all.

Thoughts welcome!
