Got some writing done on the 4th book yesterday, but not enough. Part of the problem--and this has happened before--is the next book I'm thinking about writing keeps intruding. When that happens I jot down the ideas and dialogue from what's tentatively book #5, but I get frustrated with myself because I don't want to think about those nameless characters just yet, I want to stay focused on Jack and Sophia, the characters in my WIP.

On the other hand, I did uncover the dialogue where Sophia finally tells Jack she loves him, right after she shoots him. Now all I need to do is fill in the 200 or so pages in between where I am now and where that happens and I'm done.

Love that! She tells him she loves him right after she shoots him! Sounds like my kind of story. :)

I have a great deal of fondness for Sophia because she doesn't suffer fools gladly, and most of the time "Lucky Jack" is at the top of the list of fools she's not going to suffer.
