Current Word Count: I haven’t a clue!
This one… well… it’s not about Clint and Stevie anymore. They’re going to be the Spring, and my final, contribution. I decided instead that I wanted to write about a tattoo artist. D.L. Hungerford asked if someone could write an accountant into their story so Mandy and Val can get a little time off and not have to worry about paychecks.
So my MMC is Eddie, a tattoo artist who runs a tattoo parlor in one of the basement shop spaces, and my FMC is Hope, a down-on-her-luck accountant living in the crappiest apartment building in Anteros – only about 1 step up from living on the street.
As if it wasn’t bad enough she’s just a few dollars shy of living on the street, Angelo, her shoulder angel, and Lucia, her shoulder devil, have been fighting non-stop for the past several weeks, and they’re driving her nuts.
Fortunately, no good deed in Anteros goes unrecognized – especially not by those who have been helped out by Val – and Hope ends up with a free cup of hot cocoa for returning a pair of gloves.
The rest, as they say, will be history, and there will be twists and turns for both pairs. I’ve already had a few surprises, and since it’s NaNo right now, I’m in the middle of at least three projects – this, Dawngard, and a little bit of character development for a C-plot in one of my other WIPs. Because I’m working on 3 projects right now, my works are all jumbled together, and I’m being lazy about separating them to put them all in their correct files to see where my word-count is. So you’ll just have to trust me in that I have a lot of words written. When I get past NaNo, I’ll give an official word-count update.
