This post is rated T for happy thoughts, crushes and occasional insanity.

Today has been happy surprises after another. Glimpses - a short stories collection by Lynn Flewelling arrived today in mail and well, I GOT A DRAWING OF MINE IN IT. (I knew there would be - that piece of info was published ages ago, but it didn't feel that real before today) There it was, sitting on a page, looking pretty and professional and real. I read the book so very quickly and it was all about awws and oohs. Pretty little thing. Gah, I can't really believe it that me, silly little me that gave up on art few years ago just to pick the pencil up half a year ago and the first thing I do is to draw a picture, get it printed in a book by Lynn "this is just too cute" Flewelling. I don't think I thanked her loudly enough. Hardly got my words resemble words in the mail I sent to her... Glimpses is now waiting me on my pillow so I can stare it a while before it's time to go to sleep. This can't be real.

Got a beta. That's it. If you read this, dear beta, know you're appreciated. Finally Every Day Play can get finished. It's been waiting since the summer and the first snow is expected before the end of the month - Winter is coming D:

I really got a crush on X, the main character I gushed about in my latest post. She's haunting my drawings: four pictures of her exist already and she's been "alive" for a week. Just have to get her a love interest- Okay, I'm not really that sure there's going to be any romance in Nano -10. It looks like there's going to be a junkie getting her fix than any real love, but it'll be fun to write anyway.

Can't wait for the writing to start already!

This time there'll be no reason to be terrified that there'll be no plot whatsoever: I found a plot-bunny hiding in a corner a few days ago and after a short visit to TvTropes it's ready to get going and pretty much finished. Well, as finished and carved in stone that a nano-plot can be. I don't now how it all will end, but I sure as hell know what my heroine wants. And if she get's her will there'll be something just short of an acocalypse. And I like the sound of this. I really do like blowing stuff up.

I have the silliest crush on my star puppet. I just can't wait to get to know her better. She's not my usual clisheéd heroine, has some backstory and backbone to her and is a mad android/humanoid/mess who'll be sure to prevent the story from lacking action. I is so excite! I have no idea why tattoos and fauxhawks are suddenly a good thing, but I don't care. I love the way she looks.

My first nano (-07) was melodramatic piece of historial inaccuracy (with a male lead). Nano -08 got the facts right most of the time and had more of a plot and was a murder mystery where the murderer got away (with a male lead). Nano -09 was about to get epic but didn't have the time to even start before time was over and the finish line was crossed. It had a fantasy setting, an anti-hero, a male lead and dragons and this year I'm trying to include hopefully two of them.

In nano -10 I'm aiming for a world that is rusty, broken, burning and dying and it's going to be scifi. I haven't really worked out how the world is built - where's the part of it that isn't all about empty houses and broken glass, but virtual realities and spaceships? Where are they who are the reason my main character even exists? I'm not worried: I have a week time and enough of plot-bunnies.

Why can't it be Nanowrimo-time already?
