SLOW GOING

Today, I think I'm pulling a sick day :( I've officially broken 7500, but I feel like ASS! I'm hoping I feel better tomorrow, because I have a Girl Scout meeting.

But, I wanted to share some of the NaNoWriMo writings that I did do today:

“Anyways, why are you here so early?”
“Anyways,” he parroted. “Did you really just say ‘anyways’?”
“What is wrong with anyways?”
“Nothing, I just found it a little …” his voice trailed off.
“It’s a Midwestern thing. Deal with it,” she told him.
He held his hands up in surrender. “Don’t get your gills in a tizzy,” he told her.
“Gills in a tizzy?” she questioned. “What does that even mean?”
“It’s a West Coast thing,” he told her.
“Next thing I know, you’re going to tell me to ignore the invisible pink unicorn in the room, or something.”
Trevor lifted his hand to his mouth, in mock horror. He looked around, pretending to be making sure the coast was clear. “How did you know about the invisible pink unicorn? That’s a trade secret. No one is to know of it. No one, do you hear me,” he told her, a broad smile lighting up his face.
Alexandria let out a laugh. If even only half the people she was going to be working with had this sense of humor, she was going to have absolutely no problem fitting in. Trevor’s sense of humor reminded her of her brother Stephen, who had just graduated high school. He was the baby of the family, and the one always getting into trouble. He was also the one most likely to talk himself out of trouble, so it usually evened out in the end.
Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] jupitersings, and her prompt of "FISH", I was able to throw in our regional dare of "invisible pink unicorns" :D

or something.
Okay, my story:
She had just moved across the country from everyone she knew and loved. She's given a chance to make some friends, but rebuffs them. She chases her cat, and ends up in another world. To escape this world, she must team up with beings she's never seen before and fight creatures she's never imagined could exist.
--
So, that's the "prewrite" beginning, but I have a question for the middle. It's a romance. So, there has to be sex.
The world she ends up in is Faerun (Dungeons and Dragon world). She's helped by the man she rebuffs. Well, his character anyway.
My question: safe to have sex? See, I'm still not sure if he's going to "remember" what she remembers or not. Maybe she'll just chalk it up to a very erotic dream?
Ideas?
Please. Anything. Seriously.
Well, no mocking :D Not that I think anyone would :D

sarahcb1208: (similar faces)

To see her, you would know that she is used to having things easier in life. It is more than that she is beautiful. Her green eyes shone with a shrewdness, that spoke of the ability to argue a point until the other party gave up.


I can’t turn off my brain. It wanted to write. It’s not long, but I’m slowly seeing my main female character of the #NaNoWriMo :D

I’m excited for this November. I’ve got a “planning” write-in on the 10th, that evening. Josh is off, THANK GOD, so I can go and not have to worry about the kids.

There’s another the 24th, the Kick-Off Open-mouthed smile Hopefully Josh can get off on time for that Open-mouthed smile Or else I’ll be taking the kids and he’ll be sneaking in to get them Laughing out loud.

I also see there are TWO write-in sessions for my local region! YAY! That’s one more than last year Party smile

Besides local stuff, I’m going to be hosting sprints on AIM, through . Open-mouthed smile I'm a new mod there ... for November Open-mouthed smile[livejournal.com profile] allyear_sprints

So, as anyone who is on my Twitter/Facebook/etc. has heard, I’ve been sick. I’m dealing with a fever and major headaches. Sinus all the way. Freaking SUCKS hard core, let me tell you!! I hate, hate, hate my sinuses. Even in FL, they were full of fail Sad smile
So, I didn’t write a word this weekend. Literally. Not a single word Sad smile

_MG_9485 300/365 - Astrid Pays a Visit

The kids were able to wear their Halloween costumes to school today.

Ethan, obviously, is going as Woody. His costume is a little short. Good thing he has the boots, right? *LOL*

Madison is going as Astrid, from How to Train Your Dragon. She was going to go as Tinkerbell but the costume totally didn’t fit. It said it fit 4-6x. 6x must have REALLY changed because Madi’s in 6s now, and good god, her clothes aren’t THAT baggy. Its like its designed for someone 2-3x her size, around, but her height. That’s kind of scary, honestly. Yeah, I know she’s on the small size for her age, but good LORD. That would be a 65-80lb 7-year-old. We didn’t, all 3 of us in my family, didn’t hit that weight until we were at least 9 or 10. Heck, my brother, until he was SIXTEEN was 4’8” and 65lb, LMAO. He technically should have been in a booster until he was 13, ROFL.

In other news, I’m playing with Scrivener for Windows. Its in BETA. BETA runs out Dec. 12, and the new one comes out. So, yeah. Not sure what I’m gonna write NaNo with, but eh, I’m enjoying trying out new programs!

sarahcb1208: (Um What?)
Oh goodness! So I joined in a NaNoWriMo chat last night (HI [livejournal.com profile] writingvixen) Met some seriously cool people.
I also now have my 2009 NaNo on my Kindle! Woot!

On the to-do list:

- Prep for NaNo
+ Some pre-writing
+ Re-read last year's novel
- Laundry (fun, right?)
- Chat again @ NaNoPlotting on AIM (FUN!)
- Dinner
- P365-related stuff :)

Anything else big going on for anyone?
sarahcb1208: (NCIS on it boss)
Good god, just shoot me now!!


I wrote just under 8K (about 200 words shy). Kill me now please!

I've got a headache on my right side now, right around my jaw. Fucking sucks.

But, I'm 4 days ahead!!
sarahcb1208: (NaNo 2009 b)
Okay, for Day 1, it was a total failure. I was so sick, courtesy of the flu, that I only got 1001 words done. Like I said, total fail!

Day 2, still had flu and could not concentrate. Josh suggested going into the bedroom and chilling out. So, I did, and opened the Write Or Die Desktop Edition.

The main writing blog got a one paragraph preview of the story, if you want to read it.

*cough*

The flu has moved into my chest, so I'm like, death becomes her right now. At least I feel like that.
Yet, I'm waking up before 7am today and yesterday. Seriously? Who is this person? Shoot, by this time yesterday, I'd already showered. I had showered today before Josh left for work at quarter to seven. Helped with the chest, though!!

Meet Cullum and Alestra.
Oh boy!!

I don't know what you mean. He looks nothing like Josh Duhamel.
Now to work on the rest of them.

I've also decided on a title: A Piece of Her Heart

Alestra is going to be a Vampiric Human. Cullum is a "human" Magickal. More info on the other blog

wooterz!

Now, to figure out the plot, the rest of the world, the fun technology, and the bad guy(s). Wish me luck on that. It's not going to be easy!
