so speaking of taking over the world...one of my characters is dreaming of that. what a fatal dream. people who have that dream always meet their doom. kind of says dream big but not tooo big. anyway, I was writing a scene tonight and had to rely on good ol' google maps and google earth. I was checking routes and city layouts for a city I haven't lived in for MANY years. thank goodness for things like those nifty tools. otherwise readers in that city would be like man, she's way off. I love weaving fictional things into real places. it gives readers a connection to a city they might not ever have been to or readers who actually live there a feeling of hey, that's right near me! all this sounds really dumb but perhaps it's because my mind is tired from writing and staring at those damn google maps.
is this pic related?no but it's funny as hell. anyway,I am now over 30k words in my NANO word count. this is going very well. I fixed my plot hole. a new character stepped up and took care of it just as nice as you please. but one thing, my ms has gone from a paranormal romance to more of an urban fantasy with strong romantic elements. and my bad guy(who is a frickin evil dude from real life) is yearning to become likeable for his own nefarious reasons. I hate to kill him. he's creepy though. can someone be evil, I mean really evil but try and show that he has another side? it's weirding me out. I didn't think he would go this direction when I decided to put him in but he did. crazy characters. doing things that are out of character for them! 11 days to go on my journey. how is anyone else's NANO journey going?
