Writing a novel is like driving a car at night...

I really like this quote.  Because it's true.

There is always the wonderful debate between pantsers and plotters-- which is best, which produces the tightest novel, which is the most efficient way to write, which should I do?

But the truth is, you can really only write what's right in front of you.  You can plot.  You can plan.  You can know where you're going... or at least where you hope to end up.  But when it comes right down to it, you have to write the book one page, one paragraph, one sentence at a time.

Just like anything right?  All you can live is this moment, take things as they come, do your best now.

This is something I'm going to try to take to heart. In lots of things.

Especially this damned book I'm working on right now!

But first, I might need to get some more glitter...

Erin's most recent release is book four in her Counting on Love series, Going for Four!

It’s either true love…or the biggest mistake they’ve ever made.

Counting on Love, Book 4

Hot firefighter Cody Madsen has stayed away from Olivia Dixon for almost two years—technically. Even though he talks to her every day and sees her every weekend. But there’s no kissing, touching, or telling her how he really feels. Because they’re just friends.  Anything more than that would mean crossing the line that Olivia’s older brother has firmly drawn between them.

Olivia wants what her three sisters have—true love. She could almost believe she’s found it with Cody, if it weren’t for the fact that he’s her older brother’s best friend and her brother won’t have it. And he’s never steered her wrong before. Her head is telling her to trust her brother, but her heart won’t let go of Cody.

Her solution? A dating site where she and Cody can each find their “Perfect Pick” once and for all.

But when the site yields some unexpected results, their real feelings come front and center. And they have to decide if it’s worth the risk to cross the line from friendship to love after all.

Warning: Contains a starry-eyed romantic, a wannabe knight in shining armor, and chocolate chip cookies. A lot of chocolate chip cookies.
