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.

So, life got busy and I haven’t realized that it’s been so long since I last updated. It’s not much of an excuse really…I must admit that my inner “bum” sort of took a hold of me the last week or so. There were a few days I didn’t write at all and just sat around the house watching TV or a movie or old Gilmore Girls episodes instead of being productive.

Anyway, today Phil comes back from his business trip in Seattle, thus ending the ten days that we’ve been apart. Of course his flight doesn’t even come in until 10:30 tonight, but at least I know I don’t have to sleep alone any more 😛

On the writing front, I’m slowly but surely coming along with the NaNo novel. I’m still ahead of where we are supposed to be (despite the two days of not writing at all). Unfortunately it seems to be lacking in quality as the days go by. I didn’t think that it could get much worse–but it has 😛

Anyway, I’m getting to a major turning point in the novel, where the antagonist finds my MC and kidnaps her. I’m still uncertain if there’s going to be a death in the process (I’m unfortunately leaning towards yes…as much as I love the character that will probably die in defending her…). I suppose I’ll find out fairly soon as it will be in the next two chapters.

That’s pretty much it…I’m doubting the book will actually be finished by the end of the month, but it should be within a few chapters.

Official Word Count: 36,737

Are you getting tired of reading word count updates yet? 😛

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!
