As much as I would love to actually have the epic Cho and Jane romancing that develops through encounters at bookstores... there was no real action there that could grab me. :\ Sooo two nights ago I came to the decision that I would do something rebellious. As you know from previous posts, I had planned on doing a Halloween story - it didn't happen but I did have a few pages written. I also started on another story where Cho gets kidnapped...

Well, I'm combining the ideas, working within the framework of my Crimson & Gold series, and running from there. Since I will be using some scenes already written (although already I've been changing and adding to them), my new wordcount goal for the month is 55K.

The muses still aren't helping terribly much in getting a lot written in any one sitting - I'm writing very choppily. But I feel like I'm finally on a path that will work for me. I promise no death fic, but I'm starting to worry this might see what happened in last year's NaNo and someone gets permenantly maimed. :p I'm trying to avoid that, though for sure scars are gonna occur. (Louisa has an inside scoop of what that is. ^_~

Also, new title: Roses are Red. I need a sig banner though. >_> Or/and a cover... *hinthint nudgenudge*

Also: I solemnly swear to catch up on word count by Monday, November 8.

I might be able to help with that, assuming I can get my desktop to work :)

Just give me the specs - what size, if there's any specific colours or images you want me to use, things like that - and I'll see what I can do.

Oh, and I have a little gift for you. Keep an eye on your comment_fic notifications ;)

OMG COMMENT FIC = AWESOME!

Sig banner max is 500x100px though I don't care if it's smaller... Otherwise cover size is supposed to be (*checks the website*) no more than 50kb. The website resizes it to 230x300px. When I made my cover last year I made it larger and let it resize. :p

Contents:
Well, title is of course important. ;)
Characters include all of the main cast (+ Hightower + RJ + Kristina in parts)

You can kind of include whatever. I guess kind of random objects/things of significance I know about at the moment: +Watch (anniversary gift for Cho *g*) +Photograph of curly-haired little girl (Kristina) +RJ's classic calling card :\

Sorry, it took me much longer than I assumed to get my computer fixed so these are coming way too late, but...





(alas, I couldn't fit the rest of the cast without making it too crowded)

Well, I'm glad something is starting to gel together - if it means making a mix'n'match of various story ideas and fics that you've given thought to already so be it!

Personally I'm pysched to read it (because HELLO MENTAL FIC = YOU WRITING IT = AWESOMESTUFFS)

Roses are Red - I like it.....and it doesn't instantly bring to mind sweetness and romance, but rather an underlying sinsterness (Red John may have spoiled the Roses are Red romance for me forever)

So yey for a building on word counting by Monday - and success for the end of the month - we're only six days in - YOU CAN DO THIS!!!
