As of this writing, I have 1,637 words left to cross the NaNoWriMo finish line. Of course, I have had to completely restart my novel, so I pretty much just have Chapter 1 complete at the time of this writing, but at least I know where it's going now ... even though it's somehow morphed from a Lovecraftian horror with Pulp aspects into a romance with erotica elements and a series of Cult-related murders in the background. This work will also feature my very first sex scene that doesn't involve robots. So, yeah, this is taking me by surprise. But oh well. If Sebastian and Lucas want to have hate-sex like a pair of horny Bonobos, who am I to argue? It's not like this first work is really going to be read by anyone, so I can experiment a little, right?
That said, I may possibly be posting here for those who do want to read and/or critique what I have. I'll be continuing with this novel through out the year until it's done, working on it in between finishing "Polyhex Candidate', and a couple of other stories that have spawned in my headspace this month. One is a continuation of "Nightingale Effect", wherein Smokescreen is reprogrammed into believing that he is (and always has been) a Decepticon and needs to act as shrink to all the crazy 'Cons. The other ... well, I've had this odd little notion for a what-if story. What if Megatron had failed to kill Sentinel all those years ago and the Decepticon movement had died with him? It's a dark idea for an AU TF history, taking the Council's corruption to the logical extreme and making the Autobots the new rebels against the Council.
But Polyhex first. That needs to be finished before anything else.
