Change in my Layout 8


I decided to take advantage of Blogger’s new Blog listing feature which allows me to not only list what blogs I read, but also will pick up the title of your latest post – and when it was. (Which should help me stop surfing quite so much while I check to see if you’ve recently updated your blog. Ha! As if that’ll stop me.)

I transferred them from my Google bookmarks, not from my bloglist so let me know if by some strange quirk (okay, laziness on my part)I accidentally dropped yours off and you want it re-added.

In other news, I’ve been busy working away on Sam’s story. (I really need to come up with a proper title for it one of these days.) I’ve reached a critical point and the action’s heating up now. And Sam has turned out to be a lot kinkier than I first thought, which is something considering one of my crit partners thought he was pretty kinky to begin with. In fact, Dani said:

Sam came off pretty kinky in Private Property. I can’t imagine him being more than that. He came off as a MAJOR control freak, dominating (but in a sexy way) rough, bad ass.

Ah, be still my beating heart! That’s exactly how I wanted him to be seen.

By the way, does anyone else really understand the expression Be still, my beating heart? Doesn’t that mean, stop beating, or in other words “let me die?” Okay, being the geek I am, I googled it. According to Phrases.org. “Beating Heart” dates back to John Dryden in 1697, the full expression being used in 1705.

Originally used with the swooning earnestness of woman’s poetry of the Romantic period. Now more often used ironically, about suitors who are indisputably unsuitable.

Hmm, yeah, that describes Sam. Indisputably Unsuitable.

Actually that doesn’t sound like a bad title.

    So when do I get to read Sam’s story?

    I really can’t wait to read what you have done to him. I think in our discussions that the premise has completely changed, but it sounds intriguing. Gimme, gimme

    It’s fun to be quoted, but I think I got dropped off your blog list. : )

    Premise? What’s that? LMAO … um, certain things have changed but the overall story arc hasn’t. And hopefully Sam hasn’t. The heroine has changed jobs in order to make her more kickass.

    I swear I’d added you before *blushes* Ooops. You’re back now!

  • Dani

    Well, not the “whole” premise, just the only part I really knew about. LOL!

    That’s a pretty cool blog feature. I need to go update mine. I still haven’t put my links in. (hanging head down in shame)

    Very cool new layout gadget!

    Sam sounds pretty damn hot, Leah… I look forward to the day I can read about him 😉

    I agree I love the title! It’s perfect.

    and I like the new blog gadget. I read about it and was considering adding it, but haven’t done it yet. I like the way yours looks and think I’ll go ahead and switch mine over.

    Isn’t it interesting how sayings just take a 180 depending on the era? I would have thought it still meant the pounding of a lover’s heart upon seeing her true love.

    I’m patiently waiting to read Sam’s story. He was so cool in PP.

    And I love that new blog feature. I’m so tired of going to the bookmarks and then like you said, you wind up following links and there ya are – on a road to writing perdition.
