So let it start already.

Well, Good Morning.

It's a new day and the start of a new week. I've made up my mind that I'm going to finish Emeralds rough draft in three weeks. 21days is all I am giving myself to take the first half and finish it. Not long, but I don't like long goals. I think if I push myself with a short goal I have a shot of getting it done.
See when I set out to write Sapphire I put a goal of the end of the year. Mind you I set this goal on November 15th, 2007. I had the rough draft and spellcheck done by December 15th, and then had a full first revision done by the 27th. I took three days to make minor changes (the formating I did was wrong so it took a bit of work to take all of my Italics and underline). On the 31st I celebrated a complete 80,000 word manuscript.
Since then I've edited it, changed it and it is now around 100,000 words. (give or take a 1000) Emerald is Sapphire's second. Right now it's around 45,000 words and about half way there. So I gess my word goal would be 90,000 for Emerald. I'll find one of those tracking things to add latter.

I have had a crative bug biting me for the last two weeks on an idea I got from a board I frequent. The idea came from two words in diffrent sentences and I just looped them together and walla IDEA! What are the two words? Vegas........escorts. See, not the kind of thing to give to much away. But alas my idea is born and blooming.
I can't give to much away right now but here are the two words I'm using right now "Paranormal" and "Pimpping".
Don't laugh, it's a good idea and it's not a comedy! (I can't seem to be funny) Well, for now I'm just looking into it. I'm going to finish Emerald then work more on Elements of Passion (my Fae story) then start writing the 'idea'. I have reaserch to do first on it, so I'm nost sure where to start.
I'm off to start for the day... Well, I have kids asleep and the big ones are in the back yard where I can see them from the computer! I love my sun room!
