Thing I've Learned #41: Karma Hates Novelists

Why is it that I have so much homework in November? Why? And why is it that now, of all times, my stomach chooses to revolt after months of peace? Why?! Because karma seems to have it out for us November novelists.

I am behind on my word count. This frustrates me to no end. Due to the avalanche of homework I was buried in and the rebellious nature of my innards, I was unable to write yesterday. And remain unable to catch up today.

But I have learned a few new things about my characters. One, Kit is an utter brat. He whines, he's a tattle tale, he throws fits when he doesn't get what he wants...brat. Two, due to my contempt for and vehement hatred towards Signore Della Volpe, I must say I'm horrified to discover that Illari is a younger, sweeter Volpe, with all the ambition and creepiness surgically removed. I have failed as a mother! Three, Kotari appears to be Prince Djem with shorter hair. For those of you who know what I'm talking about, then you will understand my horror. At least on point number two. Creeper, creeper, creeper, creeper, creeper.

Words: 13,661. Pages: 42. Kisses: More than last time. Sex scenes: 3, if we're counting implied.

  1. Alyssa has a blog?! heck to the yeah! high fives for the sex scenes. I'm considering putting one in. but, then again, I'm writing about teenagers. I feel so uncreative. but at least I'm writing! p.s. you're still beating me. and I don't have an insane amount of homework (just a crazy amount) or "rebellious innards," which, by the way, is the most brilliant term for "upset stomach" I've ever heard in my life. high fives for you!
