Anticipation is the Best Part

By Victoria Blisse (Guest Blogger)


I must confess that I’m a present shaker. I shake, I squeeze, I run my fingers all over them. I am never tempted to open a present early, though. Why? Because I love the anticipation. I’ve got a parcel and in it could be anything at all. I can guess, I can dream and eventually I get to open it and see what’s inside. Sometimes I’ve guessed right and other times I’m not even close but a little bit of me is sad once the present is open because the anticipation is then gone.

It’s a bit like that when I’m writing too. I love coming up with my ideas. I’m not a planner but I always have a general idea of what is going to happen in my story and the wonder and the magic of starting something new and not quite knowing where it’s going to end up is addictive. I tend to get a bit bogged down in the middle because I’ve got it all planned out and that spark has disappeared but then I surprise myself and with most stories the run in to the end is very pleasurable. Then after the torture of editing I get to anticipate what the readers will think of my latest offering!

I’m always looking forward to the next exciting thing and I’m lucky that my life is full of excitement. I’ve got so much to look forward too. I’m a big fan of Christmas and that is creeping closer and closer. I’ve started work on my Christmas presents. This year I am going to make something for everyone on my Christmas list because homemade gifts rock and I have loads of crafting/sewing/cooking things I want to do for people. I’m starting early because with so much to do I know if I leave it much later I’ll never manage to do it all in time! I am eagerly planning for baking Christmas cake and Christmas pudding too. I love these little things that show me the Christmas season is coming.

But first there is the Blissemas season which starts on the 1st December and dear readers, you can look forward to it too as there will be a Kindle Fire up for grabs. Keep an eye on http://blissemas.co.uk for more details. I can’t wait there’s going to be so many awesome authors involved with great, festive blogs and a great big seasonal Sunday Snog with loads of wintery/festive kissing excerpts. It will be epic. I can’t wait. Well, I can, I sort of explained that already didn’t I? I love eagerly waiting…

I’m trying not to get too far ahead of myself but my mind keeps leaping forward to next June because my husband and I will be hosting our first event in Scarborough on the North East Coast of the UK. We’re having a day at the library with an erotic market, readings and a Smut by the Sea book launch too. I can’t wait. It’s going to be so much fun. For all the details check out http://smutbythesea.co.uk . It’s strange because I am excited and nervous and I’m looking forward to it and dreading it all at the same time! I am confident it will not be a disaster, after all we’ve sold tickets already and that in itself is impressive but sometimes I worry it might not be as successful as I’d want it to be but generally I’m just excited because it’s going to be a fantastic day for people to have fun and enjoy something sexy. How often does that happen? Not often enough I’d say.

So what have I got to look forward too? Lots and the best bit is, well, that IS the best bit for me. I love Anticipation.
