The absence of time and space

I'm seriously considering changing the title of my Jano from If Everyone Cared to Absence. But I really like both titles! And they both have a lot to do with the story. Sigh. Indecision.
On the bright side, Jack managed to act despicable, and my MC managed to be not perfect for a moment. Best of all, Mikhail and Maggie are missing in action, which'll gain me hopefully a lot of words to find them.

Keeeeeep holdiiiiing onnnnnn

Yeahhhh Avril Lavigne wants my soul.
The Lone Stranger is online!! was already online. It's on someone else's site, with permission! Yay! Check it out @
My JaNo is coming along. It's a little drunk, but coming. Haha. I'm at 28k, and have about 7 days left. That's a lot more hopeful than my last post, but yeah. My MC somehow picked up some vampiric traits along the way. Kinda concerned about that, but yeahhh.
As for the plot, I still have no idea how I'm going to wrap this all up. I feel like it's getting kinda redundant....the vampire thing was unique, haha, but the rest is mostly them going around fighting stuff and finding people. Hum.

Never give up, never give in!

Well I'm at 15,422 words for my JaNo, and I should be at more than 30k right now. O.o
BUT if my calculations are correct, I only have to do 2500 words a day to reach 50k. That's a LITTLE doable. Not terribly...but a little. :D
Pressing on,

Woes of stupid characters

Well I finally got my silly characters out of the hallway. They wandered around in the gym for a while, and now they're about to leave. I'm not exactly sure what's going to happen next, but I REALLY want one of them to get drunk! LOL and since Jack is my RBB (Resident BadBoy), it'll probably be him. Although I could get my FMC drunk, and she could have a "What's a place like me doing in a girl like this?" moment. Hm. hehe so many possibilities!
Oh and I managed to drag Mikhail back into the story, but.....he showed up in THE most annoying way. Grr. He can't just suddenly be a hero! Honestly.
Mikhail needs a slapping, Jack needs to get drunk, Maggie needs some nerve and Georgie needs to be less perfect.

I'm behind! Aren't you proud?

Yes I am about 5k behind. Amazing. Now I can commiserate with my fellow PENers.
I'm also kinda having writer's block. My characters are running down a dark hallway and suddenly there's these weird shadowy things "beating themselves against the ceiling." I have no idea what those are. And no idea if/how they're supposed to deal with them.
And seriously, where in the world is Mikhail? He needs to turn up. He's like....the important plot character that will not show his cowardly face!!! Curses.
Hmmm how could I bring him back...he was supposed to show up to help them save Maggie!!! Gosh. But noooo Jack pulls out his switchknife and does it all by his bad self.
Whatever. I'm going to go LJ about newsteam.

*commence victory fanfare and confetti*

I did it! w00t! 50k in a month!! Although Peter says some of it doesn't count, but I believe in word-padding so ish to him!
So I'm taking a couple week break from that, and then I'll set to the mammoth task of editing. *pulls out the vodka* Gonna need a stiff drink beforehand. lol.
But for now I'm participating in JaNoWriMo, although I'm not sure if I'll make it this time, cuz I have a lot on plate.. you know, snowboarding and all that. Anyway THIS story is about four highschool students. Let me tell you, switching from an epic fantasy to a highschool drama is quite a leap. lol. Pretty intense. But fun. I'm trying first-person, which I have NEVER done before, so I'm learning a lot.
