359 words this morning, in the last half hour before attempting work.. Okay. Going full tilt into a godsawful Journey/Hardy Boys/Young Wizards Mary-sue mashup, with shades of Barb’s “Candles” thing.
No complaints, Barb. You started YOURS based on the last chapter of the old “Shadowed Soil/To Save A Sidhe”. It’s coming back full circle on you now. 😛
I used to really really like the 70s Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries show, and there was one episode set in Mardi Gras that always bugged the crap out of me, because it could’ve been done so much better and creepier. And I’m taking some of the absolute worst (and best, in Barb’s case) Journey fanfic I’ve run across as a secondary inspiration.
WRITE, DAMN YOU, WRITE!! BRING ON THE NINJAS!!! BRING ON THE OCCULT SERIAL KILLERS!! BRING ON THE INSANE DRAGONS & CONFUSED ANGRY ROCK BAND!!
Flying by the seat of my pants for NaNo. WOOT!!
