Needless to say, I’m not finished yet — got around 8-10K to go, but I may well be able to punch that all out by Wednesday night, allowing me to eat guilt-free turkey on Thursday.

But man, today was rough in Olympic Cove. Bad, bad shit has happened to my boys, and I must take a break before I start crying and running amok.

My brain hurts, and I need two gorgeous redheaded sea gods to rub my neck and make it all better.

BUT. I’ve explained what Bythos and Aphros are doing with their pollution-cleaning coral, why they’re interested in the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, plus I’ve set up the potential for a dramatic face-off later in the story. That’s good for one day.

So, NaNoWriMo

Or as I like to call it, November. Because I’m a masochist with no sense of self-preservation, I’m continuing to work on Behind the Iron Cross whilst plowing into the first Olympic Cove book, now titled Storm Season. NaNoWriMo word count for the last three days:

Beginning word count: 12,009

Day One: 3,036

Day Two: 3,012

Day Three: 3,265

NaNoWriMo Total So Far: 9,313

Total Word Count: 21,322

And that doesn’t include the 2.5K I tacked onto Behind the Iron Cross in that time. I must now put on my artisan hat and fill Etsy orders. Selah.
