Now 3% grimmer!

I've added about 2,000 words to The Trickster Society, fleshing out the worldbuilding just a bit and adding a longer, darker fight at the end. I still want to do some tinkering, but I think the revisions will be fairly minor. For once I took the time to get the ending right!

Now that I'm getting close to wrapping up the first-pass edits and will soon set Trickster Society aside to cool a little, I'm ready for my next project. I'm going to finish that awful romance book I started this spring, by God, even if it kills me. It would be totally awesome if I could finish it before NaNo--I might even allow myself to write something new in November if so.

Hey, I have a full two months before NaNo! I wrote Bell-Men in less time (um, and took twice as long to rewrite it because I rushed it, but never mind). I can totally write a frothy romance book in two months. Just watch me!

Enjoy the romance!

While you're adding words I've been hacking them away. Hopefully there's some kind of a happy medium in there.

If your romance is frothing, I would see a doctor. Nothing worse than genital rabies ; )

Danielle--Hacking away words is somehow very satisfying to me. Good luck with it!

Natalie--lol! That's a pretty disgusting mental image.

Good luck with the froth!

Thanks! I hope it turns out good like froth on a fancy coffee and not bad like froth on an oil-slicked ocean wave.

You can easily tear out a few hearts and have everyone snogging by November.

I'm hoping so!
