Blurb: Silver Tesdal has a head for business and a mouth made for kissing, and banker Drew Lovato has his eye on both. But ever since he was dumb enough to let her go, she’s kept him at a distance. When the bank turns her down for a loan, Drew sees a double opportunity—he can finance her brilliant, unique idea to rock Happily Inc’s wedding industry and win back her trust. Continue reading

NaNoWriMo Day 13, Soup’s Off

soup's off cover

Observations: Today’s my “off” day so I actually wrote a little before getting out of bed and saved it to “the cloud” (please say that in your best movie trailer voice). And, then when I wanted to review it on my pc before uploading, well, the cloud wanted to rain on my parade, but I ain’t having it.

Also, I’ve momentarily switched back to the “classic” editor because I have too much to do to worry about disappearing green lines…or any other lines for that matter. When I have more time, I am going to play with it.

What the heck is NaNoWriMo? So, I guess there are some of you out there who don’t know exactly what NaNoWriMo’s goal is. It’s simple: write 50,000 words during the month. At the end, you may, or may not have a novel. It’s presumed that your novels aren’t going to be Hemingway or King or Rowling, because every day is an effort to meet a quota…I wonder if I can add these words. 😉 Sometimes you just have to follow where the spark is taking you, which I bet a lot of you do as you write although you don’t share it so we don’t know. That’s why I said that reading these installment could be like watching a bad wreck in progress. I don’t have the leisure (or ability) to edit your memory for what you’ve already read, so I’m pretty much asking you to keep reading and see where it goes…just as I’m doing as I’m writing.

When it’s going well, it’s so much fun. It’s the high of writing highs.

Disclaimer: If you read the above paragraphs, you know what’s coming: it’s a draft! It’s a daredevil passage to wretchedness. Read at your own risk.

Total word count: 20,436

I’m behind by 2902 words (and no, I didn’t include the ones above…dang); and look I could block one unit, make it a color and still have it appear when I publish. Love you classic editor! 😉

ps I will definitely have another entry today to perhaps catch up and get ahead? (Insert ROFLMAO) Let’s hope!

NaNoWriMo Day 12, Soup’s Off

Disclaimer One: Yep, can’t be a good sign if I’m anticipating multiple disclaimers, can it?

I’m using the new wordpress editor. ‘Nuff said.

Observations: The writing slogged on this section. Slogged, bogged, fogged brain. Something to look forward to reading, am I right? 😉

Like yesterday’s break, I’m going to eat and then try to write more and hope that helps.

Disclaimer Two: This is a draft! Read at your own risk.

Total word count: 19,184

820 words behind for yesterday. Something to look into. It’s not obvious how to make one word a different color. Not discovering it now.

Oddly you can’t read green text in preview. We’ll see if it shows up after publishing. So much fun! 😉

NaNoWriMo Day 11, Soup’s Off

soup's off cover

Observation: I’m almost frightened to go back and look at the two previously posted days because the typos in this one were so bad…and I’m sure there might be more.

So, you probably noticed that I didn’t write yesterday. It might have been a good thing because I came up with a direction to go in. Yippeee!

Update: I will try to write another passage for today so that I can closer to where I should be, but a cup of tea and sustenance are in order.

Disclaimer: A draft! Maybe a very bad draft! 🙂 Read at your own risk.

Total word count: 18046

for yesterday I would have been behind by: 291. If I don’t write anymore today, I’ll be behind by: 1958.

NaNoWriMo Day 10, Soup’s Off

soup's off cover

Observations: Honestly, I’ve been so busy today trying to figure out how to get my little rescue dog to me (without me roadtripping 1000+ miles) that I didn’t know if I’d settle myself down to write. Come on, what’s more important a beautiful dog….or NaNo? 😉

I am definitely writing for fun now. What are your impressions? Is this something, after being severely edited and molded, that you could imagine yourself enjoying?

My feeling at this point is that Sophie is only just beginning to come into her character. It’s a process of self-discovery.

Disclaimer: Yup, still a DRAFT. I have not read this one over. I apologize for that. I’d probably still miss a few typos…but not all of them.

And thank you to anyone who is actually reading this. You have my heart…well…not literally. 😉

Total word count: 16736

66 words ahead (ut oh, tomorrow’s get ahead day!)
