Day 25 NaNoWriMo update – Book excerpt

Hi all! Thanks to those who still manage stumble onto my blog! I have been so busy with getting this novel written and done by 11/30/09! I am behind in my other projects like book reviews, but I am chugging along quite nicely with this! I am about 10k away from goal! So with that said I decided to add an excerpt here for ya’ll to read! I could set it up, but I decided not too. Please enjoy! And comments are welcome! (FYI-this is a first draft w/out editing lol.)

“And then what? Do you honestly think that they will help us?”
I looked to who spoke and saw that it was a young human male. I saw red, just because I was a bit pissy. I probably needed some blood, but that would not help if I vamped out on the humans. Sometimes having a demon inside sucked super hard!
“I have no idea if it will work, but quite frankly I do not give a shit! We need the help. And we need their tech. They are more advanced than both of people.”
I looked at him until he turned his head. Great I was showing dominance like a damn animal. I have not been this thirsty since I first woke. While the Nasarii needed the blood, they did not crave it like I did. They actually created a blood substitute in pill form with the help of the humans sympathetic to our plight, but with my demon essence well mine was a craving and a need.
Most days I can ignore the craving, but ever since we allowed the humans in our inner circle there were times I would go all predator. I did try the pill supplement, and while it helped it never really stopped the need. I know what I needed but I was reluctant. I needed a blood donor or more appropriate a blood slave. I could be sustained with a Nasarii, but what I really wanted was a human male. Siona knew what I was going through as I confessed it to her. I even told Jasen who of course was ready to let me suck from him, but I was not ready to go there yet.
I hated this weakness but I knew I could not go too long with out the real deal. I think it was the predator in me.

Day 14 NaNoWriMo Update


I am proud to say that I am at the halfway mark with my novel. I am at a little over 25k words. I am excited because this is the most writing I've done on a single project and it feels good!

There were a couple of days there were I wrote but my word counts for the days were less than 200 words. I could have been disappointed, but I realized that from day 1 I was always over a bit by my daily goal of 1667 words so writing the small amount did not hurt me. It also made me realized that no matter what I was still writing.

That has been my biggest hurdle. I never complete a writing project because I let things like life intrude. So far I am realizing I can do this writing gig, if I put it in my head to write. I am also finding it easy to bust out anywhere from 7 to 9 pages a day. Before that would have been a serious struggle.

They say it takes 3 weeks, 21 days to form a habit. This is one habit I want to keep. Seriously. I enjoy writing, and this has been a dream of mine since 1989 when I graduated high school. Well one marriage, one divorce, 2 kids later I am finally realizing my dream and it is all thanks to National Novel Writing Monthly!

Just a Random Thoughts Post


As I sit here and wait for "V" to come on, what if there really are aliens out there, just waiting for us? I do have an active imagination, but sometimes I think it goes over board.

A couple of years ago, when I was in my twenties when I got into a Astro Bounce with my friend. I had never been in one and we both decided to try it. There were kids in there too and we were having a blast until the damn bounce started losing air. Us adults tried to leave first before the kids, but me and my girl got stuck in the entrance because the kids decided to bumrush us and get out too. Let's just say I peed a little from laughing very, very hard. I was not even breathing some of time as I was just laughing like a little kid. Good times.

I have a job that requires large amounts of caffeine in order for me to keep my sanity. Even during Princess Mode (some of you know it as pms). But even with copious amounts of Coffee, people still amaze me with how friggen rude they are. I answer the phone, why in the hell would you start yelling at me? I finally had it today and had to tell a man point blank that I was not the cause of his distress and in order for me to help him he needed to stop going off on me. I said it very pleasantly, but I had to go there. I got him to where he needed to be, but I had a headache after wards.

I love twitter! I love being random and tweeting in 140 characters. But I am way pissed that a guy is now getting a TV show from his tweets. WTH? Ok maybe he is funny, but still, maybe I need to kick my tweets up a notch? Hmm.

Day 7 NaNoWriMo Update


Hi all! Can I just say that NaNoWriMo has taken over my life! SERIOUSLY! I am writing about 2k words a day, and to add to my writing workload I also decided to try my hand at a submission for a publisher, so I've written a story that I finished today. It is supposed to be limited to 5k and I am over it, by 500 words so I will be editing it. I am quite proud of myself. In the last 7 days I wrote over 20k words, though I am not counting the short story into my total word count as it is something I started already, and per the rules of nanowrimo, you can't do that. But regardless, this is something I want to do. Anyhoo I decided to try my hand at making a book cover for my nanowrimo book witch is slightly futuristic/sci-fi and I used one of my photos I took of the night sky, and changed the color a bit. I kinda like it, but I am not graphic artist and I do not have photo shop, but something that came with my computer. So enjoy this awesome book cover with my pen name if I ever do become a published author. (not really, but I felt the need to show off a bit lol)

What exactly is a McRib?


That is my question, though if I think about too hard I might never eat one again. But seriously is it beef, chicken, or pork meat product? It is shaped like a riblet, yet I know for a fact that no bones touched that meat.

But even with these questions, I still crave one every time they decide to roll these out. The tangy sauce, pickles, and onions on a fluffy bun. My mouth waters just thinking about it!

For a long time I refused to eat them on the grounds that McDonalds did not know ribs. But oh was I wrong. And this is also a great marketing campaign. Only come out once a year for a limited time for something. I really hate them for that.

So while I do have serious questions about the meat that is a McRib, I will still enjoy them for the time that they are out.
