Here are the recent stats for the fabulous urban fantasy adventure about a neurotic vampire/thief and her wealthy blind client, now with Bonus! half-Cuban drag queen and military intrigue:
New Words Written: 3482
Present Total Word Count: 54,319 words
Goal: 95,000 words by December 12
Darling du Jour: “So he stood in my kitchen, leaning over the bar and glistening with sweat — and a dusting of leftover glitter. That stuff really is the gift that keeps on giving.”
Things Accomplished in Fiction: Discovered backstory and may have offed somebody’s parents, accidentally. Then again, maybe they’re fine. Also, got a refreshing phone call from the client, who seems to be as hale and hardy as a blind dead man can reasonably be.
Things Accomplished in Real Life: Day-job work all morning; grocery shopping; delivered a couple of books to the staff where my event will be held next month; went to bank; did laundry; made phone calls.
Reason for Stopping: Time to go get that laundry out of the dryer.
