Let's Dance

I'm considering participating in "Write here, Right now" which is a Nano-spin-off for February. Jasmine may do it with me as well. If I do.....I think I'll use it to work on Tasliri. Or an LQ project. Haven't decided. Haven't really even decided if I'm going to do it. Hum.

"You know what they say, familiarity breeds...uh, well, contempt, but..."

The second draft of "Absence" is completely done, so if you haven't read it and you want to, email me.
I had sooo much pleasure writing the ending. I'm very happy with it. *pats* The whole thing still needs a lot of work, but right now I'm just enjoying fangirling about everyone and everything in it. I think I might add a few more, more action creature-kicking scenes. Maybe some sort of scene solidifying Jack and Georgie's....whatever feelings about whatever. I don't feel like I did a very hot job of developing their friendship. And by hot I mean "skilled", not....whatever it is you're thinking. lol.
Anyway this is just me rambling, but this is what this blog is after all. I like the Hounds, I want to extend their scene. I want to give Ian and Josh some more "screen time" but....I think that might be over-doing it.

What kind of food are you guys eating to get so cool?

I got The Hard Evil Scenes That Were Haunting Me done tonight. :D I'm very proud and pleased and RELIEVED.

It's amazing what a firm deadline and a bit of Green Day do for the ol' writing synapses.

You only pull off a shrug like that once in a lifetime.

I keep forgetting about LIGHTING! It's so irritating! Like they're in a pitch-black environment, they have lights but I NEVER mention them and act like everything has inner light. lol. Which is the case at ONE part.

I dunno, do you think it matters? Is it okay if I just mention lighting a couple times and then assume the reader knows what the situation is the rest of the time?
