I really need to try to insert more positivity on this blog, because I feel like I'm really just either whining about how writing is haaaaaaard (because being, say, homeless or working twelve hours a day digging ditches is just a breeze) or complaining about things.

That day, however, is not today. So if you're in a squeetastical mood, you may not want to read what I have to say.

2. Squee Kill #2 - Thanksgiving, even less grate askhully (culturally).

In which I kill your squee and your turkey leftovers. )

Just a quick word update to keep me honest. So far, having two projects is a bit like having newborn twins. If one isn't acting the hell up, the other is. But on the plus side (and totally NOT like babies) when one gets too fussy, I can put it down and go play with the other one for a while. Though I hear that as far as parenting goes, that's not a really good tack to take.

One of my stories is doing better wordcount wise than the other, but not story wise. It's weird. I have more words on the first because I've been drawing out a lot of details. The other isn't as filled with useless descriptions because I know where the plot is going (sort of).

Word Count: Bound For Canaan
8485 / 50000

Word Count: The Bronze Orchid
6721 / 50000

So, I decided to do both ideas. Yes, that's right friends and Romans, I'm going to be writing not one, but two novels for NaNoWriMo.

I know that this is a bad idea and is proof that I have no idea what I'm doing. I am AWARE. KTHNXBAI.

Word counts:

Bound for Canaan (Novel #1)
2000 / 50000

The Bronze Orchid (Novel #2)
980 / 50000
