I won. I wrote my 50,000 words in one month. The novel isn't done, but I'll still be working on it. I won't leave people hanging.

I think this is the closest I've pushed it, though. This is only the second time I've validated on the final day, and I distinctly remember it was mid-afternoon when I typed in "The End" on Wings, after which I promptly collapsed and curled up and slept. I think I cried.

Oh, and for the record, I wrote 20k words in just this last week. ~facepalm~ Being a habitual procrastinator sucks.

Anyway, if you wanted to read what I wrote this month, but you missed the post when I started writing, check it out. Reply there, and I'll add you to my filter. I'm pretty proud of it, for all its flaws. ^_^


And, if you want to read the first novel (since this is the second in the series), Twilight Dreaming can be found in my memories.


I'm gonna go play WoW. =p

I have finally reached 25k words for NaNoWriMo this year.

I will so win this thing.

That is all.

20646 and rallying. This is where things should really start happening, finally. I hope that makes it easier to write. Wish me luck in pulling myself up by my bootstraps. It's day 18, and I have a lot of ground to make up.

Visions of the Afterdark, Chapter Four: Future of the Fae (a) )

7957 words. ~faint~ I think I'm past Infodump City now, at least. @_@ Have some cute Jalireth POV. Everybody go "awww" for little boy Jalireth. ^_^ He won't stay that way forever! hehe

Visions of the Afterdark, Chapter Two: The Cursed One (a) )

Those of you who have been with me through NaNo before should know the drill. The first part is public, anything that comes after will be filtered. (If it's not, please yell at me so I can fix it ASAP.)

If you want on the filter, please say so now. This is not an obligation to review, or even an obligation to read as soon as I post. I *hope* that everyone who wants on the filter will say something encouraging as I plod on through the month, but it's a pretty hectic month, even for people who *aren't* nanoing!

This year, as I said in a post earlier today, I'm writing the sequel to Twilight Dreaming. There's the handy link to my memories, if you need a refresher or if you missed the first one and this has you curious enough to want to check it out.

Anyway, request away. And if you're writing something that you KNOW I'll love, point me in the right direction. I won't make promises that I'll read it this month, and if I don't I want you to remind me when I'm done writing, but I just *might* read it because nothing makes me procrastinate more than NaNo!

So, here's the start...or the middle, as the case may be...

Visions of the Afterdark, Chapter One: The Child (part a) )

I'm at almost 500 words. I might be higher if Anakin hadn't stayed home from school today. ~shrug~

For those of you curious about what I'm writing, I decided at about 9:30 this morning to work on the sequel to Twilight Dreaming. There is grumpy Eliasan in the first chapter, and this gives me warm fuzzies.

Portents of doom, a baby is born, and an Empress goes mad.

(For those of you who were part of/followed my RP with these characters, I'm changing a good portion of what went on. I'm taking some of the good stuff, and dropping some good stuff that makes me feel bad now. I love you guys, and don't want you to take any omissions personally, but the last year or so I've had some IDEAS for this one.)

Be sure to stay tuned for werewolves. And vampires. And the cutest Fae kid in the universe.

Hey all, I'm back online.

Okay, sure, at this point nobody misses me when my connection is down for nearly 24 hours, because people assume I'm off doing other things. My life is defined by such chaos, these days. I like it like that.

But, I missed *you*! ~hugs friends~ ~hugs internet~

It was dark, alone, and scary. ;_; NOT in that fun Halloween way, either.

Anyway, I have a "witch" costume to put on, for the amusement of the Anakin.

I still can't decide what to write for NaNo. I guess I'll figure out which story I'm doing, when I start writing tomorrow morning. And, I MUST post 2000 words to my LJ before I'm allowed to get on WoW for the day. So, if you have any spare luck sitting around, please send some my way. (My priest isn't going to get to use her broom before it disappears, at this rate. ;_;)

~hugs everyone some more~

This last week/weekend has been a lot of fun. The weekend kinda started early for me, because my dear sweet [livejournal.com profile] bigbadwolfcub took a couple of days off for his birthday. I'm hoping it was the best birthday he's had. He seemed a little less stressy and grumpy about adding another number on this time around. (He isn't *happy* about it, but the birthday itself was fun, and started for him in the best way. ^_^) [livejournal.com profile] dragonnette came up from Tucson to spend a couple of days with us, and that was great fun. Then again, she's just an amazing person like that.

[livejournal.com profile] bigbadwolfcub and I got to play a lot of WoW together, and that's always fun. I got my healing ring from the Headless Horseman, and I'm just plain getting better at shaman healing again. Yay. I got my priest up to 56, too. Yayness.

Yesterday was fun. My mom *didn't* make a huge fuss about M's birthday, and that was a very good thing. (My mom tries, but sometimes she can just go annoyingly overboard on things.) In the afternoon, I got to meet [livejournal.com profile] silentrequiem. Wow, she's pretty. And smart. And very, very patient. hehe Either that, or the jet lag was making her too tired to run screaming at the insanity that is my family. ^_~ Anakin wasn't on his best behavior, but he wasn't a monster at least. It was a fun afternoon. I just wish I hadn't been so drained, on top of my usual social awkwardness.

We got home, did the usual family stuff, hung around to enjoy our last evening of M's vacation, and to my surprise he decided to make an RP character on WoW to help me out with Grrgrawr! (Grr is an orc hunter who used to be the Beast from UBRS. Our guild is based on a "silly" premise that has turned amazing and opened up some great RP moments. We've also got players who are made of complete awesome and win.) So, he's playing a blood elf paladin, and is already up to level 12. I'm impressed with his RPing. Last night was a lot of fun, when he paused to interact with everyone.

Also, while he was leveling Silvermane, a few of us did Scarlet Monestary, they gave Grr a blue bow they picked up in Gnomer, and we all around had a great time. When there were just a few of us left, we hopped on our lowbie belfs and sat around telling ghost stories. Oh! Before that, I won my first duel against an opponent of the same level! Yay! Okay, he was *naked* at the time...but I still won. lol I suck at duels, I really do. I started the duel *walking*! Let me tell you, frost nova doesn't do you any good if you're trying to leisurely walk away from your frozen opponent! [livejournal.com profile] justdbear is nice, though, and said I did a good job at it at least. lol Maybe I'll try the whole duel thing out, as long as it's with people who won't go around gloating that they beat me in all my suckness. ^_^

And...that's about it. Today I'm cleaning. I worked on Grr's leatherworking a little, and Ahri's enchanting. Grr is broke again. ~pout~ Um...yeah. Sorry that cleaning is so boring I'm talking about WoW more!

Oh! I have four ideas for NaNo, and no clue which one I'll actually start writing on the first. 2000 words a day, or no WoW for me! It's going to be an interesting month. lol
