The Trouble with Tribbles and other stories

Mood: horrified, and yet intrigued.

Some things about my NaNoWriMo:
32235 total words this month, 11092 of which is my chick lit novel/written in the last 3 days.

I'm keeping a running list of things I want to change in editing. Starting with the protagonist's name. Let's just say, I remembered that "Jon & Kate" exist. Now "Kate" is ruined for me as a name. Well, hell.

I also realized that my story doesn't have much plot beyond the romance, so I've been trying to come up with, well, something else. After some brainstorming I decided to throw in family problems, because that's what I do best, and maybe a murder or two, because that's what I do second best. Killing off characters, that is. Not actually murdering people.

I'm within 500 words of writing the first sex scene. I'm a little nervous. Much like a virgin, touched for the very first time. Sorry, I couldn't help myself.

Also... my protagonist will probably bond with one of her love interests over their mutual love of science fiction. I'm picturing a sex scene in which they talk about their favorite science fiction stories/movies, and when they climax they'll yell out, "Tribbles!" I think I just ruined Star Trek forever. Sorry.

hahaha, I'm glad! (I'm actually serious about writing that sex scene, too. I don't know how it'll work... but... it has soo much potential.)

Thank you for the permission! I DO like your name... I might just use it. :D
