And the most recent mission. Actually I spend a fair amount of time on the Nasa site. No really. I do. I blame the obsessions of my other half. And as if I needed to prove to the world how nerdy I really am deep down inside, yesterday I tweeted about Copernicium. Couldn’t help it. It wasn’t the periodic table per se, because frankly that’s just so much gobbledegook to me, but I like Copernicus. And its kind of cool.
Finally, as mentioned above, Romance Divas are holding the Not Going to the Conference Conference. There’s tons going on and I’m late mentioning it, but there is still time. (And all the posts are still there to read). Click on the banner. You can join today (its free and a goldmine of information).
(Linnea Sinclair’s presentation is particularly AMAZING! And there are more to come! SQUEE!)
So that’s it. Lots to do while I try to finish this rewrite. And most of it (apart from Copernicium) writing related. Kinda.
Here we are a couple of days into May and we’re having great and productive fun at Romance Divas with MayNoWriMo. I’m working on finishing Moy Tura Echoes and I’m a hair’s breadth from the end. Unfortunately the end keeps moving. I was aiming for 90k, but I’m now at 91k and still going. Especially as the characters have just changed the end. Or at least part of it. They tend to do that.
Particularly these characters.
So hopefully tomorrow. Hopefully. I really want it finished now. Pretty please?
I’m on a great team though, with loads of hard work being done. Yes, we’re largely making things up as we go along (what’s new, huh?) and that’s part of why I’m enjoying it I think.
Here an excerpt detailing where it all went haywire this evening…
She didn’t even cry out when his sword went right through her.

Born to protect women’s hearts, her own beats longingly for a mortal. Oops…
Ondina, one thousand years a goddess, doesn’t think much of mortal men. Probably because her sole purpose in life is to protect the hearts of women who don’t want to fall in love. And now one of those blasted men—Jack—has shattered her sacred chalice, trapping her in a mortal body.
Jackson Nichols, on the partner track at his law firm, is the first to admit he always follows his head. Never his heart. Dina is infuriating, messy, condescending, sexy, beautiful and…well, just about everything that doesn’t fit into his meticulously planned life.
Neither expects to find many redeeming qualities in the other. But when push comes to love, which will Dina choose? Her newly human heart…or one thousand years of duty?
