Feisty girls and fast cars

Jenita from Girl With a Notebook created the topic for the blog chain this week, and asks what our latest obsession in our writing is. For her it's steampunk and psychological disorders. How fun is that? I'm afraid I'm not so interesting. I had to sit there and think about it for a minute, and you know the only thing I could come up with? Feisty girls and fast cars.

Everything I write has some smart mouthed chick and a sexy sports car. The car isn't always for the girl but its in there somewhere. Sorta weird since I'm not really sure why I keep writing those two things in. I'm smart mouthed sometimes but I sure as hell don't have a snappy sports car. But I sure wish I did so maybe that's why I give them to my characters.

Just last night I was researching which fancy car my MC would have. He's not the smart mouthed chick but she's there right with him for most of the story. I'm super excited about this one because I get to really showcase her as the bad girl instead of having a bad boy like usual. It will be fun writing about a girl saving a guy's ass for once. But of course he'll return the favor at some point. Speaking of that...I need to get writing because I've set some pretty lofty goals for myself and if I don't stop blogging and start blogging I'll never get there.

Stop by the other awesome blogs in the chain this week.

I wish I was a feisty girl with a fast car, but alas I'm a tired 27 year old with a Volvo. We all dream though don't we, that's what writing is all about.

Wow, October! I am a firm believer in setting deadlines. It makes people more productive. Good luck.
