February Round Up

February was an epic month! I'm so delighted and thrilled with what I managed to get done, the highlight being a 5K day on Sunday 23rd.

I wrote 19K on The Ammonite Affair, 10K on an untitled fantasy, and 3K on other works for a mammoth 33,103 words - more than twice my goal for the month!

I hit - or blasted past - every challenge goal on WriYe.

Much of this has to do with finding 4thewords - a role-playing game where you battle monsters by writing words. A little childish, perhaps, but it really worked for me in February. And why not have a little fun while writing?!

Works in sort of progress

I'm roughly 10K behind on NaNoWriMo, and I've just added a third project. I had hoped to focus on one, but I guess, what with everything I have going on, that was a long shot.

Only two of the projects are SFR. The other is Contemporary Romance. One was started prior to November - MERCURY DAWN - and I've just started a second that currently has no title.

MERCURY DAWN stands at just over 5K and I describe it as "ALIEN with kissing." The draft blurb follows:

Captain Corin Renzor is facing a court martial for disobeying a direct order when the research starship Mercury Dawn goes radio silent. Offered the recovery mission and a chance at redemption, he heads a crew of dishonoured personnel out to the edge of inhabited space, but they aren't the first to reach the stricken vessel…

For junker Skye Alexander the Mercury Dawn is the haul that'll clear her debt with crime boss Kai Loren. The last thing she needs is Corin Renzor getting in her way again. Especially when her heart barely survived the last time they met.

Neither can afford to let the ambers that still burn from igniting. Not when the Mercury Dawn is missing personnel. Or when members of both their crews are disappearing. And definitely not when the bloodied bodies start turning up. Yet they must put their differences aside if they're going to survive what's hiding in the spaceship's darkened corridors.
