Sorry about the lack of a post yesterday. I was working late and when I took a break to finally write my blog post I saw that it was already after midnight so I scrapped it until now. Unfortunately, I don't have much to report. I continued to chip away the new second short story. I have finished the first chapter and I'm hoping to complete the second chapter tomorrow. The bad part is that I don't have anything plotted out after the second chapter. I might find myself staring at my white board again on Friday. I've got some ideas of what I want the problem for the story to be, but I haven't figured out how to solve it. Well, I know how to solve it, but it would only take one chapter, making this story way too short.
As for NaNoWriMo, I have somehow managed to stay on target. My word count total sits at 14,965 words, which is only 35 words behind where I should be. I think I can pick up those extra words tomorrow and get a little ahead. I need to be ahead if I'm going to pause on Friday for plotting.
My current plan is to write chapter 2 on Thursday, plot on Friday, start chapter 3 on Friday, finish chapter 3 and start chapter 4 on Saturday, and edit the first short story on Sunday. It will have been one week since I finished it, allowing me to come at it with somewhat fresh eyes.
The only major thing I think I need to do to it is come up with a name for a brothel. Do you have some suggestions for me? Please...! It's a succubus run and owned brothel where all the employees are incubus or succubus. I need a name. Other details: it's in a Victorian-style mansion on a quiet, oak-lined residential street. So subtle would be nice, but I also appreciate cheeky puns.
Finally, while at the grocery today, my O.H. tried his hand at the claw game and won me a Stewie doll from Family Guy! He is so cute and I love Family Guy, particularly Stewie and Brian. I don't currently have a Brian, but he seems to be making friends with my Devil Dog, which I received for Valentine's Day last year.
