I'm a terrible person

I have now poked four of the five stories from the June NaNo Project.

And I love them all.


The Revelator is finished and off to the Salt City Steam Salty Dog Contest.

De-Wolfed Ben has garnered a bit of crit from the Hubby, but really nothing major. He liked that one a lot, and thought the end was good and didn't fizzle or come too abruptly.

I should be getting crit on Chambliss's Story from my Writing Buddy soon.

George and the Meerkats is just a fun little story. It's my fifth entry in my spaceship crew saga. I sent that one to my Writing Buddy this week.

The only one I have yet to look at is Cat-Hoarding Dragon, and I did sneak a peek at the ending just now. Eheehee. I am amused.

That one, however, is going to take a lot of work to beat into shape. It started in first person, and then I realized a few thousand words in that it wouldn't work in first and switched to third. It's got three POV characters and is already banging on 9000 words. Which means I've got a bare thousand words to play with if I want to send it to Beneath Ceaseless Skies. Considering the fact that I rarely write secondary-world fantasy, I really do want to send it to them.

Fortunately, the other three I have left won't actually take much to complete, I don't think. They're pretty solid as they sit, and I am well-pleased with the results of this NaNo round.
