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

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.

In a fit of procrastination, I put something down "on paper" so I wouldn't ever forget. So, if you were ever wondering what the exact layout of David's house in Twilight dreaming, wonder no more.

Heaven help us all, when I start drawing maps of all the Fae kingdoms. (That'll happen right around the middle of the second week, right? lol)

Now I wish I could make those high quality maps of awesomeness you find in novel companion books and stuff. hehehe But, I'm glad I can't, because then I'd never actually *write* anything!

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...

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.
