A side effect of NaNo: I feel like my daily correspondence writing (e-mails, blog posts, et similar) has gone to poop while I've been working on this novel. It's like I've used up all my writing gas on the WIP, and the car's sputtering into the station even writing a grocery list.
But...I officially passed the mark of the most words I've completed on a WIP today. Squee!!
Switching gears--you know those people that make you feel cooler by association? Well, Lisa and Laura Roecker fall into this category. Their book, A Kate Lowry Mystery: The Haunting of Pemberly Brown just got acquired, and I cannot wait to read it (but I will have to as it isn't coming out until Spring 2011). And after a little perusing of their website, I'm also counting down the days until their WIP, Pride and Purity, is acquired because I HAD A SIMILAR IDEA (only not YA genre) for the flipped gender roles in P&P ten years ago. I outlined it, but I didn't write it. I am glad that someone with a proper snarky, hilarious voice is, though.
I digress. Proof of how cool they are...they are giving away a Kindle. When they could have kept said Kindle for themselves. something I would have done
Head over to their blog and leave a comment to win a Kindle.
