Sometimes, the fear of losing something overrode the rationality of safety.  )

Good afternoon!

NaNo is through, I was successful. Now it's time to see what's on the list for December. I have several busy weeks ahead. Shopping. Wrapping. Job hunting. Cleaning. But I'm definitely planning on a lot of writing.

I'm focusing on two fics for sure, with others trickling in on the edges for the sake of variety.

First and foremost, I'm working on finishing my m/m urban fantasy romance Shady Hill (title subject to change). This one has gone through several plot revisions but I now have a clear picture of how I want it to go. I'm about four-fifths of the way done with the first draft. If I can stamp complete on this, I'll be a happy writer.

I'm leaving East of Eden edits for 2015.

I hope to write and post some ficlets, too. Little glimpses into all these stories. I don't want to waste this opportunity to get some writing work done.

You can always ask me about the progress of anything I haven't mentioned. I don't mind one bit. :)

As I work on building my profile and my fics, I've finally managed to come to some decisions. :)

For NaNoWriMo, I will be focusing on Break of Day, Part Two. Huzzah!

I will be editing/tweaking/smoothing out Aftermath and I will be self-publishing that in 2014. Yay!

And I will be editing, re-drafting, and seeking beta/editors for Synesthesia, and that I will start submitting to agents/publishers, etc in 2014 as well. Moving on up!

My new fic finally has a title: East of Eden. This will be my first ever pure romance. I'm excited about it!

I'm a few pages short of finishing Nycthemeron. Great news! Now I just have to pick which book I intend to work on by hand-writing next. So many decisions.

Good evening! Firstly, I'd like to say congratulations to a near and dear friend of mine. He was married today and I'm incredibly happy for him!

Today, I'd like to post a character highlight since I haven't done so in forever. I've also chosen a character from a series I don't give much love to, and I don't know why since I love the story so much. Ahem.

S'raiya had never wanted to be a hero, had never dreamed of being some damsel's knight or defeating fire-breathing dragons. )

I regret to inform you that Aftermath was rejected for publication. So, I'll be returning the remixed chapters to their previous position on my website and I'll start posting them again. We were on chapter five, I believe? 

I was especially pleased with how quickly they responded, though disappointed I couldn't receive a more specific reason why other than my "manuscript is not what they are looking for at this time". I understand that they are busy however, so I'm not annoyed. It would be nice, however, to get some genuine feedback on my manuscript. Alas.

Back to the drawing board in search of potential publishers.

In happier news, Flash Fiction Friday returns on Friday! And this time, there are no content restrictions. *grins*

I got to pondering today, as I struggled to stay awake after a long day of work, and I started thinking about my original fiction.

Why?

Because so many of them fit neatly into the same worlds, especially those that you might not expect.

So I thought I'd share these connections with everyone. I thought someone might be curious.

Finally!

I have found success in my rewrite of The Requiem of Janus and I must say, that I approve of the new ending way more than I did the original ending. It just makes more sense now, and feels more like a romance with the changes I've made. I think you guys will enjoy the changes more than the original.

Of course, now I just have to wait for my editor to give the thumbs up or down in approval. I'm hoping it's a thumbs up. I don't know if I have the creative effort to think of another ending.

In the meantime, I'm going to work on some of the fics I abandoned temporarily.

First on the block? War of the Animum and Hourglass. I just finished up chapter seven, and now I'm working on chapter eight. I figure I'll finish chapter eight and nine (possibly ten if I can) and then get to work on some fanfiction. I know I've been neglecting that seriously.

I have the opportunity to write a scene with Sleet with someone other than Frost and I find myself wondering. Who would my readers like to see him with. Beryl? Raven? Tungsten? Ashur? Why don't I list Adair? I can't tell you yet. He's not dead, I promise you that. But he's not in this running... bwa ha ha.

Ahem, other than that, I'm going to focus on The Beautiful Lie next, as well as The Butterfly Effect. I want to try and finish Ties of Blood as well.

I've also finished the rewrite of Aftermath so as soon as I get done with my Erland series rewrites, I'll start sending that to my editor as well. I haven't heard from her in awhile so I hope she's doing well... *frets* 

I plan to pick up the Walking Delusions rewrite, as well as the Fallen Angel, Fallen God and The Finer Points of Thievery additions soon so I can get those out to be purchased. Still looking for folks to commission on that front.

Whew. So much to do. So little time. lol

Here I am, trying to get back on track with my fic reviews. This time it's another original fiction. Semi-complete, Aftermath was my entry for the NaNoWriMo 2008. I was supposed to reach 50K by the end of the month of November. Instead, I reached 65K by the 15th. I'm pretty proud of that. To me, the plot behind Aftermath is one of the best I have ever come up with, and I plan to enter it into a contest once I go back and edit and rewrite several chapters of it. Including adding new scenes.
