I start by setting a timer for an hour or even half an hour, telling myself I can stop then. Usually it kicks start my motivation and at the very least I have a couple of hundred words down. The other kind is when I am in mid-book and, for no apparent reason, I don’t want to write a particular section. I have learned to respect my own resistance because usually it means there’s something wrong with the way I’ve planned it. Taking a good look at the scene often makes me see the change I need to make and I can go forward again. (less)

I don't expect every reader to like every book - tastes vary so much - but knowing I have an audience makes the hard work worthwhile. And yes, it is work, despite the PJs. (less)

I've been reading the latest volume in Loretta Chase’s Dressmakers series and enjoying the clothes. The three Noiret sisters run a high-class dressmaking establishment in 1830s London and the gowns play an active role in the stories – beyond being removed by the heroes. Readers of TheTwoNerdyHistoryGirlsblog know how devoted Chase and her cohort Isabella Bradford are to costume history.

“My darling love, I think you have a fundamental misconception about what it means to be a great dandy. I have better taste than anyone else so I don't care what anyone else thinks about anything. I am right and they are wrong.”
Miranda Neville, The Amorous Education of Celia Seaton

“You love Robert, not me. You don’t love Lord Stuffy, so I tried to be like Robert.”
The sweet idiot! She felt like weeping again. She began to protest, but he cut her off.
“I don’t drink and I don’t gamble and I don’t have a mistress. I’m dull. You told me so, the first time we met. So I tried to change.” He frowned. “Not the mistress. I’ll never do that.”
“Good,” she whispered.
“I’m trying to be like Robert, but I’m no good at it. I drank wine. And brandy, lots of it. I didn’t like it and it made me sick. I played hazard and I lost.” He looked momentarily cheerful and her heart sank. “But I didn’t like that either. If I was a real man like Mr. Fox, or Robert, I’d have lost thousands.”
The sadder he looked, the more her heart ached, a happy ache.
“I failed you, Caro. I’m sorry, but I’m afraid I’ll always be Lord Stuffy,” he said, and closed his tortured, bloodshot eyes.”
Miranda Neville, The Importance of Being Wicked

“He'd kept his figure despite being past his first youth. Pretty good for nearly forty.

Who was she fooling? She knew quite well that he was thirty-five and a half, exactly five years older than she. Their birthdays were two days apart. It was absurd the way trivial facts lingered in the memory, facts as unimportant as what she had for dinner on Tuesday. Except that she couldn't remember last week's menu and she was annoyingly aware of Max Quinton's preference for lamb over beef, for apple tart over syllabub. He preferred Shakespeare to the modern poets, the country to the town.”
Miranda Neville, The Second Seduction of a Lady
