We had our end of year party for our local RWA group. Great company, great food - too much dessert. What more could you want?
I came home with gift certificates for Chapters and a writing book by Janet Evanovich. Lucky me.
I have about 13,000 words left to write for NaNo and I'm thinking hard about the story. I need some seriously, intense and fun scenes to write this week. So far I have the following:
the first love scene
the OMG, the killer's chasing us scene
the OMG, the killer has captured the heroine scene
the hero tries to rescue the heroine scene but the heroine saves herself. (because she's a kick a** heroine and doesn't need no stink'n man to save her.)
then the hero and heroine decide the future scene - because even though she doesn't need no stink'n hero he sure is nice (and hot) to have around.
Is that 13,000 words?
We're doing another write-in on Wednesday night so I'll plan on 3,000 words then, but really I have to write that every day.
I have to get started on the Christmas shopping and my oldest daughter needs a Christmas dress for several parties. She could go herself or with a girlfriend to pick it out but it's one of those moments I like to grab and savor. She'll be eighteen in less than two months and I realize she's not my little girl anymore and sometimes I just want to stop time. Sniff, Sniff.
