Overnighting in the Indy airport. We had to be here at 4:30am for our flight, so we just had Joyce and Jeff drop us off after dinner. Leaving so many people behind makes me a sad girl.

Despite having had only about 18 hours of sleep in the past six days, i am too wired to sleep right now, and a brief scene I did with Wally at about 4am has been skipping around in my brain ever since, so I'm working on writing it out. As always, my music playlist is giving me some ridiculously good prompts, and I think this snippet will be a decent one. Lots of good moments this con, and I think my writing brain may be getting a surge of motivation after this past few days.

So I just tried that Analyze Your Writing Style thing, but I gave up after I got Douglas Adams, James Joyce and Margaret Atwood out of three different journal entries.

Con was good and happymaking and, as always, too short.

Spoils: A rubber "Zombie Awareness" bracelet, 5 new buttons for my hat, a new toe ring, a lovely bit of leather for costuming, a new tail (Rank 2 now!), a messenger bag, a book (which is really interesting!), and a t-shirt in my favorite style (raglan with 3/4 sleeves) that says "Sin like you mean it".

Since last we saw our intrepid heroine... )

It was a good Con. There are almost always people at Con/GCL that I want to punch in the face repeatedly, but they are vastly outnumbered by the walking piles of awesome that I only get to see once a year.

Also, this is the part where I reiterate that pretty much the only thing I miss about the Midwest on a regular basis is the people, but there are SO MANY OF THEM THAT I MISS SO MUCH ARGH. *throwing mad love at Con people* [/mushy]

The Utah guys will be with us until next .... Sunday, I think. Today is my last day off before I go back to work, and I expect most of it will be spent in the "I just got home from vacation and the refrigerator is empty" vein of errands. I might even unpack, rather than letting it go til we've been home for a month.

Or maybe I'll just go spelunking through the GCL database to make sure all the little tweaks got made right.

Or maybe this weekend kick-started Gaelen's backstory again.

>.> Guess we'll find out. <.

So, as may have been surmised by the fact that I never posted anything resembling "Holy crap I did it," I did not in fact succeed at writing 50,000 words during the month of November.

In fact, I actually got distracted on November 15th and wrote nothing further after that. (Though I did post three samples here back during November.)

However, I did write just over 24,000 words between November 1 and November 15 - roughly 90-odd pages, as far as Word is concerned.

I've been contemplating dusting it off and working on more of the story - however, before I do that, I'd like to get a bit of editing and review done on what I do have already. So if anyone's interested in reading and editing 90 pages worth of a slightly whacked-in-the-head vampire's history - or even a smaller section of it; it's written in smaller 2k to 4k word chunks, mostly - let me know. (And if not? Totally understandable. Hehe.)

Disclaimer: Sorry, but I'm not sending my lady's whole backstory to any other GCL players. :) No hard feelings.

Note to self - you are a hyphen abuser like whoa. (See? See? That was an unnecessary hyphen there!)

Gotta work on that. :P

(Hey, at least I'm not abusing semicolons.)

Edit: Holy CRAP. *throws her pen across the room* I LOVE THIS.

Lord, I haven't written real honest-to-goodness fiction in .... years. And this is going so damn well it boggles me.
