Going's on

Well, my new goal for the end of the month, which is coming up next week already (sheesh!) is to complete 15,000 words in Big Chief my YA book. I am nearing the 12,000 word mark on it and I would like to be, by my estimation, close to half-way done before the end of the month. Then I will feel like I could make the mad dash into NaNo with a clear conscience. Not as clear as having the whole thing done, but I can deal with half.

In other news, I recieved my copy of A DemonMinds Halloween. It is actually pretty well done and I am happy to have a story in it. Solitaire, and Other Games Children Play was a story that I enjoyed writing, perhaps more than 90% of the other stories I have written this year. Felicity Dowker has a story in it as well. I haven't had a chance to read that one yet.

Oh, and just for fun I included a picture of my library, it was a must have room that we put into an addition on our house. It is made from walnut if any of you were wondering and yes, I did all the work myself. Even the fireplace surround is custom made. Two walls are solid bookcases, there are two leather chairs on the opposite wall and the exposed walls are painted a classic library red, which my wife will tell you was worth it even though it took several coats to get even coverage.

CONGRATULATIONS! And a very nice library indeed.

Thank you.

I would have liked to make it bigger, but she wanted a place to sleep. . .

Beautiful woodwork--a skill I wish I had.

Cool library! The fireplace gives it Masterpiece Theatre feel : )

Congrats! And why would you want a place to sleep? Better yet, sleep in the library! Fabulous work!

Wow, I am insanely jealous of your library, it's the stuff fantasies are made of. Just gorgeous.

I haven't received my contributor copy of DemonMinds yet, but then, it has to wing its way to me here in Australia, so it'll take a wee bit longer. Can't wait to read your story. :o)
