Playing Nice with the Protag

I am kicking my word count’s trash.

Also, chapter 1 is going to be really long. But I get to introduce new, awesome characters pretty soon.

Teague and I are getting along so far. This is a good thing.

It’s supposed to snow today. As long as it’s the big, fat, pretty snow, I think I can handle it.

Also sent an email to my friend who I commissioned to do a character sketch for me. She’s super busy, but hopefully I can get a picture of my protagonist before too long. :D

ALL OF YOU SHOULD GO TO WORLDCON. Still looking for a roommate.

Excerpt of the day*:

The man, scratching his mustache, glanced to her. “Yes Miss, what can I do for you?”

“I’m looking for someone. Do you know anyone by the name ‘Aro’?”

A dark expression plastered over the stranger’s features, giving him the same, cold look as the gardener. He grasped Teague’s wrist, almost forcing her to drop the bun, and pulled her uncomfortably close. “What under the Sun do you want with him?”

Teague pulled back, but the man’s grip was iron. “I-I’m sorry?”

“Only one man goes by the name of Aro,” he said lowly, the odor of pickled vegetables on his breath. “Now you tell me what you want with him.”

Weirs, chapter 1

*IT’S A ROUGH DRAFT OKAY.

  1. Snow usually helps me get in the mood to write. I think it has something to do with the fact that the outside world doesn't tempt me. It's far nicer to sit in my office with a mug of cocoa.
