Well, that's officially a month's worth of writing. I'm close to 45,000 words, which isn't too bad, but not as quickly as I got Rebel out. I'm technically on vacation with my family, though, so I'll use that for my excuse. 😉 Still, speed isn't everything, but I feel like this story's starting to come together now in a good way. I still haven't written the scene I got excited about a couple of days ago, since I've been having a really good flow, and I'm getting pretty close to it anyway. Hopefully I'll get to it tomorrow, though we're going to a Renaissance fair first. At least I have the evenings. 🙂

I'm getting super excited about this book, though. At this rate, I should have the first draft done in about two weeks, I think. Maybe sooner, but that might be stretching things. Then it's back to edit and to take my words and try to make them good. 🙂

He lunges out so fast with his leg that he catches me off guard, straight into my balls. Oh. My. Fucking. God, that hurts. I stagger only a moment, but it’s enough for him to wrench free and dive for his bedroom door. Gritting my teeth, I follow, but he manages to get inside and slam the door shut, followed by a soft click. I grasp the door and shake it, but it doesn’t budge. Locked.
