A Request for MLE & Progress on ST

Sometimes the Universe acts in mysterious ways. Today I got a request for a full (MLE) from NCP. I still have a few days until my crit group gets the chapters back to me before I panic and send it on the editor. But, hey, I can look at it like this: I'm 50/50 with one "R" and one full request on only two queries.

I dun good. :-)

And, over the next two weeks I'm also participating in Fast Draft (by Candy Havens), and this is day one. So far, I've written 8 pages out of my required daily 20, and my goal is a 70K first draft mss I can then expand upon in edits. I'm still not sure about a title yet, but I'm leaning towards "Forbidden Pleasures," which I like very much for the characters (hint: the heroine is a feisty support character in MLE). So I'll be working double-time on both stories. Here's my total for FP:

2,000 / 70,000

And about my progress on ST . . .

He faced her, his tone cold. "Pleasure and pain are two facets of the same gemstone. My business is to know each to it's greatest intimate effect."

Okay, back to work now. ;-)
