I finished the weird story. I went on about 1k more though I think I will be able to trim those words in my edit.

As I wrapped that story up I realized where it fits in the grande scheme of all of my projects. Of course it is set in a world in which I have all ready written. I can't have a stand-alone to save my life.


Anyways, have a snip....

She sits at a table in the corner. Alone. She faces the window, hopes to glimpse the one she is waiting for. A pale madonna, taking long hard drags on her cigarette. The smoke curls from the lit end up towards the ceiling. Towards a Heaven that no longer exists. She exhales. Her lipstick catches my eye. Red. Bright red. Like life blood. I wonder if her lips taste as sweet as they appear.

She pushes her hair back behind her ear and I can see her neck now, pale skin, almost translucent. Her veins call to me. It would be nothing to call her over, to breathe in her scent. To take. Just a small sip.

Thunk! In front of me is the cup of canned blood I ordered. I look up at the Bartender. His name is lost in a fog of memories. He is the Bartender. He glares at me.

"No hunting in my bar, Jacob."


Good night lj.

Been a few days since I posted here. RL has a habit of rearing up like this.

So the projects...

I took a few days off due to the RL stuff. As I was nearing sleep the other day I scribbled down a lil idea that has exploded into a larger scene. It is not what I usually write. It is first person present tense which, I admit, I hate reading. I am not having trouble writing it. It is almost finished. I think another 1500 words or so and I can call it done and ready for Beta Readers. I think I have three betas. I might want a couple more I don't know. I have a couple markets in my submit it to list.

Bastard Prince is being poked at. I am going over the outline again because I deviated. Again. Ahh this is going to be a long time project for me. Ahh well.**throws hands up in the air**

Island Story 1 I am going back over my outline. I think I figured out my MC's motives which has been giving me massive headaches. I do love my is;and stories. So light and fluffy. Like well cooked scrambled eggs.
Please, don't ask why that even fits. It just does damnit!

Island Story 2, tentative title The Forbidden Island previously known as NaNo Thing 2009. I haven't really done much with this one just yet. Some editing here and there, and re-reading for the sheer fun of it. I enjoy it. I think this is a good thing.

Windwalkers Oh gosh this is a pretty one. Nice and shiny.

Editing:

I am attempting to edit the Harp Story. Again. I have my eye on the L. Ron Hubbard's Writer's of the Future contest. I don't have anything to lose.
