NaNo2017 Day 28: It Is Finished

11:45 AM 0 Comments
I've interrupted my normal blog schedule to bring you daily updates from November's National Novel Writing Challenge

Daily Notes: This is it, my final NaNo post for 2017. With two days left in the month, I completed the first draft of Kiss of the Dragon. A little swell of emotion, maybe even a tear or two, is common when I type THE END on a manuscript. Today was no exception. 

It's been a fun ride, creating a world of dragons, fire, romance, and villains. And now I must set it aside briefly to let the tale "rest" before tackling edits. ::sniff:: I can't wait to share this story with you all, and I'll have a cover reveal before too long. And now, to go collapse and celebrate until it's time to head to the day job!

Favorite Line Written Today: 

Her stomach turned completely over, and he pulled back just enough for her to see the red glimmer flame in his eyes. He kissed her right in front of the others, teasing her with a soft, but insistent exploration by his tongue that weakened her knees.

About this year's NaNo, Kiss of the Dragon:

A firefighter breaks all the rules to rescue a beautiful woman from a fire--and that's just the start of his new and bizarre behavior. Saving his mate has triggered a power he never knew existed, one that could burn down his career and scare away the object of his newly ignited passion. Keeping his condition secret is the best way to preserve both, but how long can he hide the massive, fiery dragon lurking within?

NaNoWriMo 2017 Day 27: The Final Frontier

11:01 AM 0 Comments
I've interrupted my normal blog schedule to bring you daily updates from November's National Novel Writing Challenge

Throughout November, I'll be checking in daily with some quick notes, a progress meter, and to share my favorite line written that day! 

Daily Notes: Up and at 'em this morning, I started writing immediately and worked my way into the final chapter of the book. Cautiously optimistic, folks, that this draft WILL be finished by the 30th!

Daily Total: 2832 words

Favorite Line Written Today: 

Derek found a blissful rhythm drying and polishing without having to think about anything in particular. What a rare respite from the constantly grinding mental machine. Between his own chaotic thoughts and those of the inner dragon who liked to chip in here and there, his head was normally in full gear these days.
