659 words, for 12762 total

I may get more done tonight... I'm not certain. I have a great setup going, and I'd love to follow it through. I suspect it will lead to the first kiss between my H/H, which is always fun to write, but I've thought that before and the hero didn't cooperate, just shut the whole kiss thing down hard.

In any case, the problem is this: Yesterday, I got edits back on my secret baby cowboy story, "A Change of Heart" and I really want to get cracking. I also have some other projects that need working on, and this NaNo fantasy story was only ever meant to be 20,000 - 30,000 words, which I'll hit easily before the end of November. So... I may not officially "win" NaNo for the first time since I've done this crazy thing, but I will get a complete story out of it.

Simple fact is this: I can't quit working on the contracted stuff in order to achieve 50,000 words, no matter how much I'd like to.

Still... I haven't given up hope yet. Some days, the words just flow like crazy. If I have enough 3,000 word days, I'll hit the goal I want.

And, now... off to editing this book:

Good luck! I started a cowboy story for the last Round Robin I participated in in my last crit group. I was thinking of pulling it out and working it into something. Maybe nothing more than another Round Robin for my current crit group, but it's got a soft spot in my heart, too. We'll see.

Hey! It's a joy to be "stuck" working on contracted stuff. ;-)
