I'm like one of those scarily powerful Bleach characters, or that annoying love interest. Right when you think I'm gone - SURPRISE.
Anyway, I did come back for a purpose. Camp NaNo.
Among other novels, novellas, and worthless connected short stories about villains in Limbo, I'm writing a book whose working title is Manipulation. (Actually, I'm thinking about calling the trilogy that, and since I despise it when first books are called the same thing as the series name, I'll have to change it. That'll come later.)
Basically, I've been writing it for nigh on four years and I was hoping NaNo could galvanize me into finishing it once and for all, because I'm tired of the stupid thing.
Unfortunately, I'd already written 150 pages of it and it all needed to be edited. So, effectively, half of August has been taken up in editing.
Except it was less than half, because in between edits, I was finishing up other edits on this other book I wrote, Bitter Magic, the link to which I may or may not post sometime, depending on how it places in the contest for which I wrote it.
Back to Manipulation.
Today marked the day when I actually finished editing. The plot is cleared up, I have my plan of action (mostly), and I'm ready to write.
Evil Twin: I'M SO STINKIN' EXCITED, Y'ALL - ARIADNE IS EPIC AND I ACTUALLY LIKE MY CO-HERO AND I HAVE THREE WHOLE VILLAINS-
Sorry. My alter ego keeps shouting at people. I'll try to put more duct tape on her next time.
But, yeah, it's pretty exciting stuff. I may post updates and I may not, depending on if I can actually remember to do it. I may even post a little synopsis and/or rant about the characters. (Characters are always, always my favorite part. And I've got Jack Frost in this one. JACK. FROST.)
Eh, I had more to say, but I think that's it. Wish me luck on finishing this baby by September.
