Yay NaNo! I’m still not quite finished with Book 2 yet, but I’m getting very close. I can sense I’ve got too many scenes, but I give it the first draft shrug and kick it into overdrive. That’s the way it goes you know. Besides, those extra scenes can give you new ideas that you can incorporate elsewhere.
Since I won NaNo, I’m also looking to pick up Scrivener, which is 50% off for the winners. I’m never the sort to pay full price for anything if I can help it. But I don’t go as extreme as attending that event called Black Friday. No sir-ree bob, not me! I do the Cyber Monday, if I do anything, which is kind of weird to call cyber. But I don’t think anyone can think of a better name, so it’s stuck that way.
Finish line edits on SHADE. Achieved!
Read at least 2 new books. Making progress. I started a book called Gone Girl, but I’m the sensitive type when it comes to language and crudity. It’s not that this book is extreme by any means, but it kicked on my offend-o-meter too many times and I moved onto The Night Circus instead. But if that sort of stuff doesn’t bother you, I think the book is fairly well written, at least based off the 3 or 4 chapters I read. I think it’ll turn into a decent story.
I did manage to get a hold of a copy of Matched from the e-library, but it’s an epub which means Kindle no likey. I’ve tried finding any other medium that doesn’t involve reading on my computer (cuz that just ain’t happening). There’s a chance I can get it to work on my phone, but if every there was a strong case for sticking to the Kindle only, this would be it. I guess I could buy it, but I hate to buy stuff I’m not sure if I’ll read again in the future. #firstworldproblems
October NaNoWriMo Prep Work. Achieved! NaNoWriMo Challenge. ACHIEVED!
Edit/finish the short stories I do have. No new progress.
Time for the whole reason in my hectic and somewhat shenanigan-filled life that I keep on trying to blog, the WIPpet. When last we left Logan an angel was there to either help or destroy him. Some background info, though Logan was raised by a human named Gentry, of his biological parents, his father is a full-blooded infamous demon and his mother is half-demon, but also just as infamous to the angels.
“Who are you?” Logan finally asked, hating the silence, and especially hating the way those sapphire eyes scoured him.
“Vincent,” the angel replied.
Tension immediately left Logan’s body. After all this time, they’d finally found him. “Then you are my father’s friend,” Logan said, sighing relief.
“Your father is a terrible demon and your mother is something worse. They are no friends of mine,” Vincent snarled, folding his arms.
For a moment, all Logan could do was stare. Was there more than one Vincent? He had to ask, but first, this angel stood in need of correction. “My father is named Gentry and he said you were supposed to help us.”
“Help you?” Vincent laughed. “My only interest is in helping the world. Imprisoning you for eternity rids the worlds of two horrors.”
Logan clenched his fists. “But I haven’t done anything wrong.”
“You are your mother’s son. That’s plenty wrong.” Vincent narrowed his eyes.
Logan stepped forward. “I’m Gentry’s son! And you can’t hold me accountable for what my mother has done.”
“Maybe not,” Vincent admitted. “But we’re willing to sacrifice your freedom for the safety of our world.” Vincent knocked on the wall. In almost an instant the door appeared and Vincent exited. Logan tried to followed him through, but found only wall in his path.
Do you think the angels are justified in imprisoning Logan because he can potentially be just as dangerous as his biological parents? Do you believe the ends justify the means? And how are your goals coming?
