NaNoWriMo 2009: Day 13, Update and new “cover”
I’ve altered the DOUBLE BLIND icon for LJ, which no one will notice but me, except that maybe this time I had a harder time fighting the lighting/spotlight feature in Adobe. All I really wanted to do was change the Ace of Spades to an Ace of Hearts because DUH it should have been that all along. I also, because I could, altered the Curio page. The main Curio page is still this
But I also played with the "cover" that I’ve posted on the NaNoWriMo site (along with the blurb which I already suspect is inaccurate), and here it is, for your viewing pleasure.
What I love about that mock-up are all the little inside bits. That’s the Bellagio fountain, which is a scene, and the dice are important, as are the chips vs. the dice, and the Ace and the Joker are deliberate. Le sigh.
Current word count is 70k something. I want to finish the scene I’m in, then I want to get into the last act, which I feel like I should have been in about 15k ago, but this is what edits are for. The story has not at all behaved as I thought it would. I thought it was going to be Ethan whom this brought to his knees, not Randy, but looking back now it’s amazing I thought it could be any other way.
I also got edits last night for Hero, which means I am now officially two projects at once. Add in Anna’s birthday this weekend with parties on both Saturday and Sunday, and we’re looking at a whole lot of not writing between now and Monday. Which isn’t my favorite thing in the world, but we’ll cope.
That’s the state of the me. Now going to admire my cover a bit longer, then get back to work.
