First off – I can finally say that I got a contract for The Holes in These Wings (a working title only) I wasn’t allowed to say until the contest was over. I’ve had to keep this to myself for the past week.

That has been next to imposable. LOL

458 today. Not bad. Mind you not on the project that I should be working on, but still.

So with the amount I wrote on Monday that brings me to 1398 for the week. I don’t think that I am making my 2500 K by tomorrow, but I have time to make it up.

Congrats!
"The Holes in These Wings", huh? Can you give us a clue about the plot or characters or anything?
What was the contest/ I guess I missed that.
Sorry for the late response!

I never thought my first novel would be a romance
The Holes in These Wings is a paranormal/sports romance. A hocky player comes home to Boston looking for a traide to the team he was a fan of as a child. Before he can even meet with the team he is injered in a car accident. The first person who stops and tries to help is his exgirlfreind.

she is sort of his gardian angel - well she has wings and can be with him intangably. That said she is *not* an angel- she does unangelic things fairly often. But she is angel like.

Right now I'm sort of bogged down with the two chapters I know it would be hard for me to write...I kind of hope to get them out of the way in the next week or so and then I think it will be easy to write.

Re: I never thought my first novel would be a romance
Oh, this is too funny. Not you writing a romance, per se, but the weird coincidence. On the Lost Genre Guild list (spec fic), a few days ago, Alice Roelke posted,

Subject: OT: I Never thought I'd be a romance author
This morning, I signed and returned a contract for my 33,500 word
romance _Peaches In Winter_ to MuseItUp Publications.

I'm still reeling and excited about it!

I never thought I'd be a romance author. I thought the only choices for a romance author was to write 1) sex, or 2) religious fiction. I wouldn't do the first, and seemingly couldn't do the second...

And so on. What about the similarity in those subjects. Must be something in the air.

If you have trouble with the two chapters, I wouldn't worry about it. Get them down somehow, and let the draft "gel" in the back of your mind. Just move on to the rest of the novel.

Good luck and congratulations again!

Re: I never thought my first novel would be a romance
that is funny. This story started with the image of a guy trying to get rid of back spasams without taking medications. Then I had to come up with a reason why he would be doing that.

Someone had pointed out that all of my sports couples were relitivly 'problem free' so I thought I was starting on a short story.

But I'm about half way though now - I think it will be about 70K and I got through the first of the two chapters that I know I will have trouble with today. I will be working on the second one tommorow and the day after - I hope to have that one done by next Sunday then I think it will be easy again.

Oddly enough the sceen in my head that started it all in chapter 18 and I am on chapter 13 now LOL
