MINE!

My White Wolf SAS project came in. No doubt, it's a big one. 33,000 words in just about six weeks. Normally, I wouldn't sweat it at all. However, I have a friend visiting and a convention to go to between now and then.

However, my editor asked if I wanted a second author to help me out because of the word count and deadline. My first immediate reaction was akin to my cat, Isis, with a feathered toy in her mouth – snarling and growling while trying to yank it away – a very clear "MINE!" reaction.

My second response was to actually think about things. Pro-panelist listen to thine own advice. Don't take a contract unless you are certain you can get it done in time AND do a professional job. OK. Yes, friend and convention coming up. However, if I average a good 1000 words a day, it will be no sweat. My friend knows I need to write while she's here and I can double up days to make up for the convention. OK. Yes, I can take it.

But let me tell you, this is my first White Wolf SAS project and I do not want to share it with anyone. Sometimes, I can be selfish and I know it.

I totally understand. Rose-Bride was my first solo-project since my novel. I wanted it to be MINE MINE MINE!

That being said - if you need help, I'm here. Whether that's just an ear or to help out. That's what friends are for. :)

And I have no doubt you will rock it!
