Change Over Complete!

Here’s my new URL:

http://inthewritemind.wordpress.com/

The title of my blog is “Tales from the Writing Front.” You’ll have to change over the link now if you have me on your blogroll. But it’s the same thing–even has the same layout–I just wanted a new URL.

So I got a little bored with my website title and came up with this.  However I will probably change over to a new URL and I may do this in the next day or so, but everything will be transferred over; I’m even keeping the same layout, but I wanted to change the blog url to something more general than the title of my book. So, this is just a heads up to my loyal readers, since you’ll have to change the URL and re-add me to your list. I’ll put the new link up when everything is transferred over.

Are you getting tired of reading word count updates yet? đŸ˜›

Anyway, today’s official count: 7,018

Slowly but surely…

I managed 2800 words (exactly) today. Normally I’m only able to write about 2,000 maybe 2,500 max. So 2,800 is quite a feat for me.

Most of the scene I wrote today was between Kaiyo and Ryuji, from Ryuji’s POV and it was the first “realization” that he might be falling in love with her. Of course the poor man is agonzing over this because he’s not supposed to be falling for his boss’ daughter–especially in a society where marriages were still typically arranged  (even though Kaiyo was raised American). Of course I have to  make certain I don’t make it too angsty, which it could become if I’m not careful. Actually, I may just give in to the “angst” thing until NaNo is over; I’m afraid thinking about it too much might make me not write as much.

I’m still up in the air if I’m going to have them officially together at the end or make it more of an open ended thing. I normally hate open ended books,  but I don’t want this to become cliche. So who knows. But the end is still a very long way off…

Anyway, I’m also surprised at my word count because I got some disheartening news tonight about my grandmother, who’s in the ICU now. I was seriously depressed after finding that out, but I figured it would do me no good to wallow about it, so I forged ahead. We’ll see how she improves over the following days…hoping that it’s not too bad and that she comes out of it ok; otherwise I may be making a three hour drive up towards home.

Ok that’s all for this mismatched and rambling entry!
