I am completely addicted to my new story. I have over 13,000 words done already (that’s 1/4th of the way towards completion for NaNo and close to 20% completed for publication). I am definitely anticipating having to go back and pad out some of the scenes for word count and to meet the romance genre’s standards of description (romance novels tend towards more description than I normally have in my dialogue-heavy writing), but am happy that this is a complete-able project. And it just renews my love of writing. I could definitely do this for a living… provided I could make a living do this. Because, you know, I like to eat. Although I could stand to eat less; I will admit that.
