Wednesday Writing

So Wednesday is my official writing update day. I have so many story projects going on and I need a push to get some done. So I will be trying to post each Wednesday about how my writing adventures are going (and I may need a swift kick in the pants by you guys sometimes).





Current Active Project:

Here's The Truth (and you don't get a spoonful of sugar) - 10,016 words
the honest to goodness truth about creating the little tyrants that will run your lives. No sugar coating here!
 
Princess Bs - 34,317 words

Feelings that are long since buried are rising up again, but are her recent loss and his current life going to stand in the way of their happily ever after?



Other Works in Progress:

The New Old Home - 17,193 words
Everyone dreams of winning the lottery, but what would you do with that money? That is the question presented to Natalie, when she is at the lowest point in her life, she is presented with an opportunity to make any normal person's dreams come true, but all those winnings can't give her what she wants most.


Night Rider - 17,229
Alice is a recent high school graduate who is a very accomplished competitive rider in Hunter/Jumper, Dressage, and Western/Rodeo. Her parents had arranged for her to attend a private college on the east coast geared specifically to equine professions. However, Alice wants to focus on her studies in English Literature. When she arrives at the college she hides her riding abilities, but can she keep her talent and love of horses hidden?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

After being so excited for Nanowrimo this year, I don't think I am going to be able to make it :(  After a great start, everything just got crazy busy.  I do most of my writing at the office because there is just no time at home. Now after the election on the 4th, my boss has become very politically involved (he always was before but this is way more) and now I barely have time to get this post typed let alone a novel.  I will continue to plug away at it but there will be now 50K this month for me.

I do hope you all continue to be awesome and write those novels as fast as possible!
