Premature what??

j

Blade Hunter progress:
59,496/80,000 words
291/390ish pages

Disaster because I am fast approaching the story's climax!! Grrh. I hate it when that happens. And I did say 70-80K to my editor though she did write down 80K. Darn it.

I figure I have another 50 pages of story to go and I guess this is the first draft and I tend to build my book up like putting flesh on a skeleton but still...

So I'm pleased that the book is almost typing itself at the moment, but a little nervous about the reduced number of words on the page. Grrrhh..

Did I say grrrhhh???

I think you did say Grrrh. Good luck! I know you can do it and I can't wait to read it FBA!

Love those photos :).

It honestly doesn't sound like you're way off with that first draft at all. And it's damn nice to be going with the flow ... want to send some of the magic this way??? :)

Did you get the email story I sent you yesterday about Scarlett? And did you know David is now starring in "Close to Home" this season? He's playing a much "harder" character - civilian prosecutor who's shaking up their ADA's world as the new boss. From NY to Minneopolis and he's got his eye on Annabeth. I just caught the premiere the other night. NOW it might be worth watching! Glad he's got another TV run. :)

You'll be fine with your story - subplots help, more sex, I'm with Loreth Anne, want to send some of the magic over to MJ??? lol!

LOL, more sex!

No I didn't get the Scarlett email. And no I didn't know he was in Close to Home. Sigh. Must get one of those recordable DVD players!!!
