I’ve heard you say a lot of creepy things. You have a lot of creepy ideas. Never before now have I seriously thought I could tie you down to prevent you from going through with one.
- A character of mine.
I don’t smoke, but I happened across an old pack of Black & Milds and decided, why not? I lit one up at two-thirty in the morning and sat in the rain to smoke it.
Feeling like a writer is wonderful. Cranking out six thousand words to finish a novel’s first draft; listening to the Rent soundtrack and hurting in ways you know non-writers don’t hurt; playing Minesweeper until you finish the Expert level in 99 seconds (and then twenty minutes more); sitting in the rain, in the wee hours of the morning, smoking a tiny cigar.
Instantly, the characters who have been giving me the most trouble started vying for my attention, and I gave it to them in pairs. Some of them smoke; the ones who don’t got with one who did and I listened to them have chats next to me, about smoking and other things. I made that tiny cigar last half an hour before sitting down and putting the conversations in black and
mild white. The above quote was my favorite to make an appearance. And the best part is, the speaker is someone who has almost no personality just yet. Maybe there’s hope for him, after all.
When I become a famous author, it’ll be perfectly acceptable for me to get tattoos about my own books, right?
How about you? I won’t check this again until I get 2k, so use this to procrastinate if you need to. We can do this together.
Can you do me a favor? Ask no more questions. For at least an hour. If you must get information out of me, make a statement and I can tell you if it’s true or false, but that question mark in your voice is pissing me off to no end.
- My new character, Nina. Isn’t she lovely?
It’s about polyamory, a woman and her two boyfriends. There are no graphic sex scenes.
Meredith and Conrad are a young couple, happily in love. They’ve been polyamorous since the beginning of their relationship, but none of the women Conrad has dated have stuck around for very long. When Meredith meets Tobias at work, she finds the new relationship she wasn’t looking for.
It’s about 44k words, so a short novel/novella.
Any hugs of encouragement would be appreciated. Also, anyone wanting a glimpse of my Nanovel next month, let me know and I’ll give you the password to the secret tumblr. It’s about polyamory! You know you want to read it!
Anyway, everyone have a good night, okay? Hugs and cuddles all around (for those who want them)!
