Here Thar Be Pirates!  
*listens to crickets chirping*

Is it just me, or has LJ been unusually quiet for, oh, at least the last week? At least it seems that way. Hmm.

Writing on Consort is moving apace. A slow pace, but a pace forward nonetheless. (Clearly, I am in a strange mood today.)

Which rates the very first use of the word count meter!

I figure I'll start with a goal of 100K. That's always a nice round wc for a finished book. We'll see if I actually manage to stick to it. I kept Nemesis at 96K, so there is hope.

And look, an icon for Atrea! :D What would a new book be without new cast pics? It was hard to find a pic of a fragile looking blond woman with really blue eyes and the right intensity. Atrea is petite and small boned, but she also leads one of the baddest units of shock troops in the galaxy, y'know? Most people only underestimate her once.

I also reserve the right to change it if I find a pic I like better.

Here is a link to the cast icons for Nemesis. Beta readers may note that no character by name of "Maury" ever appeared in Nemesis. Rest assured, she will definitely be in Consort. I've known the entire plot for this book since before I started Nemesis, so, yes, as she was iconed way back when, you would be correct in guessing that Maury is a pretty important new addition.

ETA: Er...and for those of you new around here, yes, it has already been pointed out to me that these books are "the books of pretty, pretty people". Or frelling hot people. Whichever.

Hey, they can look however I want them to in my imagination.

My pretty cast should totally meet your pretty cast. Can there be crossover fic yet? Haha!

That would be so awesome! Hee!

No really. Amazingly awesome. :D

LJ has been quiet for the last two weeks. I figure people are out enjoying their freedom before school starts, or before their kids' school starts...
