Kiss Me, I’m Irish











{November 1, 2008}   One Hour Down

(My Original Blog Post: http://tm2ts.sarahsmidnightfantasy.com/2008/11/01/one-hour-down/)
Well, I’m one hour into NaNoWriMo, and I’ve written 785 words. :w00t: Great start, I would say. If I write for five hours a day, that would get me to, hmm, let’s see:

785 x 5 x 30 = 117,750 words

Holy crap on a cracker!!

Yeah, I don’t think I’ll end up with that, but, :w00t:, that’s a great start. Now, though, I think it’s time for my bedtime. It’s 1am here in Topeka, tomorrow is Saturday, and I’ve got 2 sick kiddos 😦

Oh, and I’ll be nice 😛

Current Title: Panther Dreams

Brief Synopsis, straight from my NaNo page:
Two were-panthers finally find their way in a world that’s unusual, yet common.

Excerpt:

This was the day that Adrienne Karahalios always dreaded. Bill-paying day, checkbook balancing day, invoice-checking day. Who’s brilliant idea was it to make that day always fall on the first day of the month? Seriously? There had to be a better way of spending the first day of every month when you own a business, other than this. Well, at least she only really had to do it once a month. It might be boring as hell, but at least it was usually a good excuse for locking out the world. It gave her less time to think about Osias Kallas and what the heck he was doing back in New Orleans after swearing never to return.

Adri shook her head, her black hair curling slightly in the humidity as she did so. Even with the air conditioner on full-blast, the room was stuffy. She leaned back in her leather office chair, comfy thing that it was, and took a deep breath. It was great to be back in New Orleans, back with her friends, and the ones who became part of her family, but Osias returning was throwing a wrench in her life, her plans, everything. She closed her icy-blue eyes and tried to block out the thoughts of Osias. She needed to get this paperwork done so she could get back to the fun part of running her boutique: the customers and the thrill of a sale.
