I finally picked up a book. Night Secrets.
On another front, 70 Days of Sweat Writing Challenge starts the fourth round starting Nov 10 and ending Jan 26, 2009 with a 60K - 100K word count. I saw it on Alison Kent's blog last year but didn't participate. I haven't decided yet, but why not? I've written 75K during NaNo with 50K in about two weeks. I think I can do it. I'll decide right before Nov 10.
Does it count that I've been outlining several action sequences by asking questions on the NaNo forums? The answer is a resounding hell yeah! I posted Close Protection / Bodyguard Tactic and Weapons for realism. The scenarios I wrote are bare bones of what I had in mind.
Off to read and procrastinate more before going to work.
Have a great day!

Last night while surfing the NaNo forums I found a link that determine your typing speed. TypeRacer is an addictive game where you race against others typing a short selection.
Today I picked up a stack of pre-ordered books. I don't know which one to start on but I need to get at least one finished before NaNo starts.
- Night Secrets by Cherry Adair
- Destiny Kills by Kerri Arthur
- Ultimate Weapon by Shannon McKenna
- Darkest Touch by Jaci Burton
- All I Want For Christmas Is A Vampire by Kerrelyn Sparks
- Fallen Angel by Margaret and Lizz Weis
- Brimstone Kiss by Carole Nelson Douglas
- Silver Bells anthology by Fern Michaels, JoAnn Ross, Mary Burton and Judy Duarte
Man, it's tough because #1-6, #2 being a start of a new series, are from authors I've been waiting for a while.
On the NaNo front, still organizing said scenarios.

National Novel Writing Month starts on Nov. 1. This is a month devoted to writing a 50,000 word first draft of a novel.
I've got a little time to hash out a few things for my Nano. So far it's tentatively called Sub Rosa: Collateral Damage. I'm trying to write this so it bridges the big gap between Sub Rosa: Ghosts of the Past and Sub Rosa: Allies and Renegades. I think I've finally found a way to wrap up these stories.
I still have to flesh out a few things and hopefully get an outline together.
