|12:12 am - NaNo update|
Well, in spite of coming home from work completely worn out, I managed to write for a solid hour and a half, and get nearly 1500 words out.
Current total is 5118.
I will catch up. I will. It's just not easy writing without editing! It's really not! ARGH!
But I wrote a few good moments, and the plot is moving solidly along. So yay!
Also, I have an exerpt (the prologue, actually) up at my NaNoWriMo Profile, if any of you care to take a look. It's actually been edited a bit, unlike the rest, and I do change perspective and person further in, but I thought it might be fun to put out there.
Current Mood: moody
I was getting worried about you. When I last looked, you hadn't updated your count at NaNo.
I'll go over and read your excerpt.
Aw! Sorry to worry--the sad truth is that I completely forgot about updating to my profile. Heh. I will be updating daily now.

Intriguing. I haven't the faintest idewa what is going on, but the excerpt makes me want to read more.
Heheheh. Good, that's what I was going for. It's the prologue for the novel--and then we proceed to jump backwards in chronology about 3 weeks, so no reader shall really know what's going on till...till much later in the book. :-)
That's good. Seriously.
(I added you as a buddy there. I'm joy_unspeakable)
Why thank you. I did say that it was more edited--nothing else in the current draft will I show unless under severe duress. :-P
I kinda wish I could have written the whole story in that particular pov, but it was not to be.
I added you as a buddy, as well. You like KATHY TYERS!? Do you know, I've never found anyone who read her stuff but me? I spent a mildly obsessed few years collecting her novels every time I went to a used bookstore. I even have the original (non-Bethel House) versions of Firebird and Fusion Fire.
I'm starting to be deeply glad I friended you.
Kathy Tyers? Yep. I first read her Star Wars book "Truce At Bakura" and then the next time I came across her stuff was Firebird. Finished that trilogy and then found Shivering World somewhere, which, while an example of her early stuff, was nonetheless good.
If you like her, you should definately read Karen Hancock's "Arena". Excellent, excellent stuff. Few books give me that tight, knotted feeling of suspense in my stomach and Arena was one of them.
