I made my November goal for Ghost Girl! 15,000 words, 25%. Woo-hoo.

The story's taken off in a different direction than I expected, but that's always a good sign. I maybe get to do a little research this weekend, and then we get to the next exciting bit. {rubbing hands together, twirling mustache} I also unexpectedly came up with the beginning of another book last night. This is not the way I usually work, one book at a time, but I'm paying attention to it. It's a good beginning.

It's supposed to be -9 F tonight, which is damned cold. We haven't decided what to do yet, but I can promise you it won't be outside.

Speech done, check. Photography portfolio almost done. Work progressing apace.

Queries...still waiting. Wait wait wait wait wait. This appears to be a normal part of the process, so I shall continue...

Great job on the word count, 1/4 there already!!! Glad to hear the story is breathing on its own, that's always fun.

Also interesting about the new it along the same lines as your last few?

Thanks, Karen. Joint celebrations are good with me!

Though of course it's back at it today. How about you? :)

Thanks, Cindy!

The new one is also YA, but quite different in tone. Always good to have a little different, a little the same. {g}

You have a mustache? {puzzle}

Karen Mahoney said...

*sigh* You're right... The celebrations didn't last long. I've been nose-to-the-grindstone ever since. I've almost completed my first novel - should've done this YEARS ago! :)

The mustache only appears when I'm being evil. It's a magical mustache, you see.
