      P.S. I left a comment on the tour page!


  2. February 21, 2010 at 12:12 am

    I created a new discussion sidepage. Figured we need it. ^^

    OK–(thanks Aheila–you must think i’m an idiot) I finished Valentine’s Big Day, #7. Rory tells Ted and Val she’s pregnant;two of the three are getting engaged!


    One chapter left… 😉

  4. February 20, 2010 at 7:05 pm

    HELP. Aheila. when i tried to create a new page–valentine-7–i couldn’t get the script to work. it looked like and i noticed some other options weren’t there either. I noticed there was a trash next to one of your stories as well(i hope i didn’t do that)…am i doing something wrong?

    • February 20, 2010 at 7:37 pm

      Every thing seems fine. The options “edit” “whatever” and “trash” appears automatically when you hover over a page’s name. Unless you then click on trash, there won’t be a problem.

      Your page seems to be in there saved as a draft. Just go to the page list and click on Antonio 7 and you’ll be able to access it, finish writing it and publish it.

      If you still hit a wall, let me know. Worst case scenario, I’ll give you my email and post it for you! 😉

    • Antonio Rich
      February 20, 2010 at 7:41 pm

      WOW. the trash thing–don’t worry, i over-reacted on that. I have no idea what’s going on w/script…em surrounded by hmm…that’s a new one me…? I’ll experiment…

      • February 20, 2010 at 7:52 pm

        experiment? boo

      • February 20, 2010 at 7:57 pm

        Have you accidently clicked on HTML display by any chance?

        When you are writing your page, upper right corner of the text field, there is a “visual” and a “html” tab. Click on “visual”. The script will disappear and you’ll just see the formating. The tool bar will also come back. 😉

      I just say the first part of your story and loved it Aheila. How did I miss it?

      • Marsha
        February 19, 2010 at 9:38 pm

        OOPs that’s saw, not say.

    February 19, 2010 at 1:26 pm

    Just in case somebody new drops by… 🙂 THE COMPILATION PAGE FOR “ALL” STORIES IS: http://thewriteaholicblog.wordpress.com/nastyromo/ I worry that Suzanne, Aheila, Mud, Alyssa aren’t getting all the “views” they might if they were on the NaSty site…OK–I need to shut up and finish my story… 😉

    We might get some people interested in the BMS Book Club…Jenn asked me about it on the spoiler page…I told her we would probably give the page more attention and discussion in a few more days after our projects start to finish up. THEN we can give it the attention it deserves and invite people over (we gotta clean up…Phil, are those your socks on the floor? Suzanne, I’ve stepped on the tot’s toys three times today…Kylie! put some pants on! we have company coming over, young lady).

    • February 19, 2010 at 2:49 pm

      FYI: I post my stories on my blog first and here a few days later so don’t worry about my views! 😉

      Looks like you bullied us again “godfather Antonio” I see many new parts up there now.

    February 19, 2010 at 1:34 am

    I would like to yell at you all. I’m having writer’s block with the next chapter of Stars. It has violence, and one seriously pissed off Beetlejuice. All of you have made me extremely happy with all of your comments. Do you know how difficult it is to write a dark chapter when you have a freakin’ sunny disposition?!?!?! Everyone I’ve talked to so far has suggested I think of something that makes me angry. But as soon as I look at this page or think of all those comments, it goes straight to hell in one adorable hand basket. Okay. I’m done now. Back to freaking out about the hole in my mouth.

    • Antonio Rich
      February 19, 2010 at 10:08 am

      I think there is some “NaSty” fatigue going around (Laugh!)…I kind of thought that would happen after Valentine’s Day…a WHOLE month of romance writing is ALOT! The stats say we over 2,100 views! But–most of that is the discussion pages lately…not as much in reading/writing…I think we are all a little destracted by life and…oh, a little something called Black Magic Sanction! (Hah!) I’m going to buckle down and finish my story, VBDay, this weekend!

      IDEA: Kylie-chan, i was thinking about Kim and Alyssa’s chibis…I was thinking maybe Kim’s godmother needs a little “somethin’ somethin'”…some bling…how about a tiara or crown or headband, necklace, jewelry, a staff, a wand…something to differentiate her from ours and ellevate her status…Alyssa–how about giving her a “familiar” a little “Jenks-like” winged being of some kind. just an idea…

      KYLIE-CHAN—running-screaming-downhill racing(watching ALOT of Olympics)-death-GLOMP!!!

      • February 19, 2010 at 10:50 am

        Personnally, I’m done with grading papers (which monopolized my free time last week) so there is another story coming this weekend (The Spell) and Tiffany’s song is beginning to take form as well. And may be, MAY BE, a few other chapters of The Virgin. May be!

        So this week’s respite is definitely not the end for me either! ^^

      • Kylie Ru
        February 19, 2010 at 12:40 pm

        Kim wanted some dark glasses, and I could add something else as well. I’m going to try for that hat again . . .

    • Phil
      February 19, 2010 at 12:55 pm

      Kylie-chan, I would love to help you rediscover your dark side, lol, but I’m still grinning ’bout the chibis! 😀 I can’t help myself. They’re freakin’ awesome! 😉 So I’m in a happy state, no not NY, anyway it’s good for me ’cause I’m writing the rest of La Sorciere with a lighter side … at least I think it will be light. Who knows???!!!

      • Phil
        February 19, 2010 at 1:01 pm

        ps~ I saved all the chibis to my contacts, the ones I have email/websites for. All are in a permanent 😀 file. Oh, the colors add to the awesomeness!

      • Kylie Ru
        February 19, 2010 at 9:57 pm

        *wriggle happy dance* Phil-kun, I will glomp you now. *GLOMP-OF-DEATH!* MWAH! That was a kiss, right there!

  9. Kylie Ru
    • February 18, 2010 at 7:13 pm

      *glomp* You rock :)!! I love Suzanne’s steam punk outfit, love my pink hair, love them all!

      • Kylie Ru
        February 18, 2010 at 7:31 pm

        *squeaks* I’m so glad you like it! I’m rather fond of your hair ^^-

      February 18, 2010 at 7:41 pm

      ~double glomp~ I love the brass goggles. They are all super cute.

      • Kylie Ru
        February 18, 2010 at 7:45 pm

        Yay! I love the goggles, too. Thank you, thank you!

    • February 18, 2010 at 10:12 pm

      Ooooo! Suzanne’s came out really well, especially. We got witches, weres, and zombies…i keep thinking we need someone to be a chibi vamp…maybe alyssa or phil?

      • Kylie Ru
        February 18, 2010 at 10:56 pm

        Phil’s is done. Maybe Alyssa. I don’t know. She hasn’t gotten back to me yet.

    • February 18, 2010 at 11:48 pm

      Kylie chan these are great! Sorry for not coming back to you sooner, I couldn’t get into wordpress last night after work. Even Kim’s Drama!!! It was TERRIBLE!

      LOL, I’m all for bat wings! If you need a better description then I’ll add that I have really long hair, that I wear in a braid or something. And the glasses of course, lol.

  10. Kylie Ru
    February 18, 2010 at 6:37 pm

    Just waitin’ on word back from Alyss-chan. All the others are done.

    • February 18, 2010 at 6:53 pm

      Cool! Can’t wait to see mine 🙂

  11. Antonio Rich
    February 18, 2010 at 10:08 am

    Hey Kylie-chan: idea: if your looking for ideas on Suzanne’s drawing–maybe a giraffe is hard to draw(LOL)–since she’s kinda our “steampunk gal” maybe you can put her chibi in one of those period piece dresses carrying a parasol/umbrella…? Just an idea.

    • Kylie Ru
      February 18, 2010 at 10:35 am

      Antonio-kun! *glomp of DEATH!* (that’s just a very enthusiastic glomp. which may cause death) That is pure genius! I had no IDEA what I was gonna do for hers. Suzanne-chan, that work for you? Oh, and Alyss-chan! I’m kinda stuck on yours, too. I’ve got Marsha-chan as a werewolf, and if I did a wolf for you, it would look the same. If you want to be all animal-like, I can do a fox, cat, mouse . . . I could give you wings, too.

      • Antonio Rich
        February 18, 2010 at 11:52 am

        Hmmm…well, Alyssa’s in africa…maybe you can experiment w/spots or stripes…how about a bat chibi? with some crazy folded bat wings?

      • suzannelazear
        February 18, 2010 at 2:12 pm

        Love the idea. 🙂

      • Kylie Ru
        February 18, 2010 at 4:31 pm

        Sweet! I was pretty sure Suzanne-chan would like the idea, so I’ve already got it penned. Got Tiffany-chan and Kim-san penned, and once I hear from Alyss-chan, I’ll make the changes and pen that one, too. Then I just need to color them, and I’m done!

  12. February 18, 2010 at 5:20 am

    Phil’s La Sorcière Part 2 link has been added to the compilation page.


  13. February 17, 2010 at 10:04 pm

    Hi guys!! I figured with the first 7 chapters out there at Harper Collins it was time to start our “book club” discussion group for BMS!! So…you’ll notice a new page up top 🙂

    • February 17, 2010 at 10:25 pm

      EXCELLENT! (I’ve already read BMS about 6 wks ago, and I’m ready to re-read the book to prepare for writing review(s)) So–I’m chomping at the bit to talk BMS (1st 7 chapters for now). I think an open forum is cool, but I would encourage people to form questions to herd us all into a group response…ie–what do we think of Al in the first 7 chapters? What do we make of Ivy/Glenn? That kind of thing…

      Thanks Tiffany!

      • Antonio Rich
        February 17, 2010 at 10:29 pm

        Oops! I keep forgetting to log out. Hey, I want to float the idea of asking Kim to create a 3rd side page(and delete the first). I think it’s mutually beneficial for both us and Kim traffic wise…Thoughts?

      • February 17, 2010 at 10:43 pm

        That would be the ideal place for it. But if we ask her to put a side page it would have to be discussion for the whole book, right? Unless you want to ask if she would put a few?

        Or do you want to have mid-book discussion here and then whole book discussion there?

    • February 17, 2010 at 10:51 pm

      Topical discussion is a cool idea! I love it! I can edit the page to note specific topics of interest, as well as say to post whatever is on your mind about it. Maybe you would be a good person to come up with chapter groupings that make sense (i.e. 8-?? for the next one) and discussion topics for each group of chapters, since you’ve read it already (lucky!!). You up for it? 🙂

      • Antonio Rich
        February 18, 2010 at 10:03 am

        oops, Tiffany, i met the NaSty discussion page. sorry about confusion.

        book club page – totally cool where it’s at. i asked kim about a bk club page already and she said she would prefer we do it like we’re doing it.

  14. Kylie Ru
    February 17, 2010 at 9:15 pm

    Antonio-kun, totally, on both accounts!

    And I’m totally stoked y’all like yer chibis!

  15. February 17, 2010 at 7:35 pm

    Both links have been added/updated on the compilation page.

    Phew! I’m finally done with grading papers.

    • Antonio Rich
      February 17, 2010 at 10:31 pm

      Thank you, Aheila. Hang loose, have a beer (or a beverage of your choice?) and watch some Olympics maybe… 🙂 Be good…

      • February 18, 2010 at 5:17 am

        Come the weekend, I swear I’ll do just that. But for now, I’ve got work to do! 😉

  16. Antonio Rich
    February 17, 2010 at 6:20 pm

    Hi kids! 🙂 OK–finished part 6 of Valentine’s Big Day…here’s the address (probably will be moved soon by the lovely Aheila):


    Ted’s viewpoint and Rory and Val’s first date…

    OK–I’ll be back in a bit…

  17. February 17, 2010 at 5:31 pm

    Right, i’ve done a remake of the post I did earlier.

      Hey kiddo, i gotta question: I’ve named so many of my characters after you guys, and now i’m a little stuck. here it is–would you mind if i gave your character, Kylie, a love interest in my story? No worries–nothing that would embarrass you, i promise–it’s just that…it would make things work/come together nicely for me storywise…

      PS–do you like my idea to, in the future, refer to participating authors as NaSty Godmothers/Godfathers?

    • February 17, 2010 at 3:52 pm

      If you think about it…there’s a NaStyRoMo story in that…. LOL

        February 17, 2010 at 4:01 pm

        Yeah. If Stars was a romance. It’s skirting the edge of romance, but it’s more friendship. The next one sequel a romance, though.

      • February 17, 2010 at 4:29 pm

        *laughs* I think it’s brilliant.

    Well, gosh, you guys really know how to make a girl feel totally awesomesauce of herself. Alyss-chan, that is an awesome ideas. Actually, I was thinking along those very lines! Well, almost those lines . . . it was a tangent parallel to those lines. And I was gonna draw a Kim chibi. With a hat!

    • Phil
      February 17, 2010 at 12:40 pm

      And awesomely awesomesauce you deserve to feel, Kylie-chan! 😉

        February 17, 2010 at 3:04 pm


  23. February 17, 2010 at 6:03 am

    Attention NaSty Nine!
    In view of the website, I’ve got a few ideas. Firstly, I’ve got a page for the original NaSty Nine. In view of Kylie’s VERY COOL AWESOME AMAZING *cough* focus *cough* chibi’s coming out, I was thinking that each of you can write a (if you want to) a small ‘summary’ or introduction of yoruself. Soemthing like:
    Alyss was stalked into doing NaStyRoMo by Antonio. She writes fan fiction when she’s not bowing under peer pressure and posts the occasional blog post. She started writing when…
    Something like that.
    Then, i’m going to have a page for Kim Harrison and the Hollows, just a general page that says – This woudlnt’ have been possible had it not been for Kim Harrison, author of The Hollows. I’ll then give a short summary of her (most probably nicked and modified from Wikipedia) and then once again proclaim our undying loyalty and thanks, lol. If Kylie’s going to draw the fairy god mother picture i’ll put that there as well (as well as links to her website ect).
    Then, when this is all done, I’ll put all our stories up there. 🙂
    So, what do you think?

    • marsha
      February 17, 2010 at 7:42 am

      I like your idea Alyssa. I’m a pretty boring person,(though I prefer stable and calm). But since Kylie is going to make me cool and skinny, they don’t have to know that.

      • February 17, 2010 at 7:45 am

        Exactly, lol. 🙂 Even if this was your first attempt at writing, just say – spurred into writing by Antonio’s NaStyRoMo, Marsha now enjoys…
        Anything along that line. 🙂

    • Tiffany
      February 17, 2010 at 12:51 pm

      Sounds like a great idea!

    • Antonio Rich
      February 17, 2010 at 6:57 pm

      I just finished a writing session, so my brain is “mooshy” but–yes, a mission statement and individual statements are cool (when i can get my brain into drive again)…I’ve got some ideas about a plan of inquiry to be made to other authors, etc eventually (I like the model Kim has put forth: a writer sanctions “play” on his or her website among like-minded people, and eventually we link all these “hep-cats” together in an ever growing circle.) but–more on that later…

      it is SO weird to play catch up, scrolling upwards!

      anybody write today? This discussion pages numbers are “sky-high!” But–and this is a big BUTT–heehee–but, not alot of reading of our stuff! I still think it’s good to go back to Kim’s side pages and let our lurker peeps know we’re still alive…

    February 16, 2010 at 9:40 pm

    Oh yall I had the worst day! I don’t care how good you are, but when you spend 4 stinking hours sitting at a conference table with the FBI you get nervous! I have a mess to clean up there, not my mess either. Talking to Kim and reading your posts has made me feel better. Kylie how cool! I’m gonna be a werewolf, love it. I have a chin length golden blond bob with bangs. You can do what you want, just take those damn 20 pounds off!

    • February 16, 2010 at 9:57 pm

      Damn sweetie, that sounds like a terrible day! I can only imagine how nerve wrecking it must have been. I think you need a group hug. Who’s with me?

      • Kylie Ru
        February 17, 2010 at 12:08 am

        She needs a group glomp!

        And thank you, Marsha-chan! I will definitely take those 20 pounds off. And then some.

    • Kylie Ru
      February 16, 2010 at 7:32 pm

      I was thinking of drawing an elephant on your shirt, but I like your idea better. I guess this means I have to color them. Maybe I’ll do it on the computer. Then I can put them all together.

      • February 17, 2010 at 12:14 am

        LOL, You can also just draw me as a girl with a horse on her shirt. 🙂 Red hair and glasses, lol. Those are my trademarks. What ever’s the easiest for you! The other drawings are brilliant Kylie!

    February 16, 2010 at 7:04 pm

    I could draw little dolls . . . or chibies. I just need animals for all of you.

    That would be brilliant!! I was thinking that I’m going to put a page up for the original NaSties (The Nasty Nine, LOVE IT!!!) and we need… Pictures or something of ourselves. Chibis. 🙂 That would be great!!

        Mud–a dog of some kind?

        Phil–green elephant

        Marsha? werewolf?

        Tiffany–rock chick

        Kylie–obviously a Ninja!

    *laughs* well done to us on the hit count. Right Nasties, we have a webpage. At this stage, there is absolutely nothing on it, I quickly just created it.
    Let me know what you want to be on the front page ect. I’ll work on it during the week. Like an introduction, telling people what it’s about, how it started ect. bounce ideas around, I’ll put it together and create it. 🙂
    the webpage will be:

      February 16, 2010 at 11:29 am

      Dude, as the original “Nasties” we HAVE to be on the front page. Lol, we are Nasties. Wait, do we want “Nasties” or “NaSties”? And thanks for providing us an official webpage! I feel so famous :3

      • February 16, 2010 at 12:18 pm

        I think NaSties is best. It sets us apart from lower nasties. XD

      • February 16, 2010 at 1:22 pm

        I think the original NaSties are: Me, Ahelia,Marsha,Kylie,Phil,Suzanne,Tiffany,Alyssa,and Mud, I think. Or–“The NaSty Nine.” If I’m on the front page, I want it to be Kylie’s cheerleading picture of me!(LOL)

    Guys, I was checking the stats–do you realize since Tiffany started the NaSty wordpress site(feb 2nd), there have been almost 1,500 views! I know we’re bouncing alot between each other’s stuff(and each view of this discussion page counts as well), but still that’s alot! And, I think if you add up all the “replys” and “comments” from Kim’s side pages, 3rd party sites, and NaSty sites, we are approaching 800 replys comments, something like that!?

    New NaSty story up on my page.

    I’m not sure how that happened but I was dyeing my hair and this story jumped me. It might be a cousin of Ninja Friday. Anyhoo, I wrote it while the dye settled so it’s really a spur of the moment thing. And NaSty on a whole new level, I think.


  40. Antonio Rich
    February 15, 2010 at 8:44 pm

    This discussion page is so cool. But, I’m worried Kim will think we’ve abandoned her side pages/web site…One of the cool things(for her and us) is the extra traffic to her site(i’m sure they keep track of those things–views i mean). Maybe we should bounce back and forth a bit(plus, i think we have alot of lurkers/readers who link up from her site/the side pages)

    Hey Mud–how about one more story? PleasePleasePlease…

    Kylie-chan–how you doing sweetheart? are you writing/drawing anything?

    Robin(Seattle)–if your reading this stuff–thanks! But–write something!

    What happened to JanisH?–I thought she was submitting something? Did I miss it?

    OK–I’ll shut up now 🙂 Be Good(it just took me an hour and 1/2 to shovel my drive–again! Tired!

    • February 15, 2010 at 10:22 pm

      We should spam her post tomorrow with a bunch of “We love you”s from the NaStys. Very NaSty! 😉

      • February 16, 2010 at 1:31 am

    February 15, 2010 at 6:23 pm

    Okay, I hope it’s not against the rules to try to get our NaStyRoMo stories published. I found out last night that subs for the “Steampunk Reloaded” Anthology closes today (edited by Jeff VanderMeer). So, I submissted “Why you should never, ever, toy with the affections of a girl with a mad scientist father.”

    One of the rules was that is was supposed to have been published within the past ten years, on any website or in any print puiblication.

    So I wrote: At about 2,000 words, the story was orriginally part of an online compilation of otherworldly love stories created for “National Short Story of Romance Month” (NaStyRoMo), a project created by Antonio Rich.

    Sound nice and official?

    Thanks 🙂

      Well, that was the fastest rejection ever. Sigh. “that’s a great title, and it’s a lively story. But it’s not quite right for the anthology” I’m not sure if I’ll everbe able to decipher rejection letters? Was it too comercial? Riddled with mistakes? Didn’t like the MC’s name? Oh well, I’ll find a home for it eventually, lol. The person I wrote it for is all for publishing it, lol (she was very cheered by me sneding her ex to africa, even if it was a story, lol).

  42. February 15, 2010 at 4:36 pm

    Almost forgot to say – I have a new Nasty part up. You know where to go. 😉

      • February 16, 2010 at 1:29 am

        Thank you very much Aheila!! I was thinking, should we make a webpage for NaStyRoMo as well?
        we can get our own address:

        Just say and I’ll set it up.

      • Kylie Ru
        February 16, 2010 at 1:36 am

      • Antonio Rich
        February 16, 2010 at 10:35 am

        Hmmm…That might not be such a bad idea, especially if we follow thru on inviting other authors/book sites to create their own side pages next year. It might be good to have a site where people could go and get info/tech help, etc…listen to me! Talking about next year already!

      • February 16, 2010 at 10:45 am

        *laughs* well, that was what I was thinking off… I’m probably going to be an ML during NaNo as well this year, so i’ll then let them know we’re hosting it and they’ll advertise us when they ahve their NaNo send off note. 🙂 Right, i’ll create the website.

  43. February 15, 2010 at 1:44 pm

    Before I forget…

    I know you guys swing by my blog regularly for the NaSty compilation page.
    A few days ago, one of Antonio’s comments made me realized that, contrary to my belief, you guys might not be aware that my blog was a writing project before NaStyRoMo hit it.

    In a nutshell, I write 1,000 words a week of a story that is going to unfold over the course of the year. If you should ever be so inclined, you can catch up with it at the this link:

    I’d be really happy to read your comments even after NaSty’s over. 😉

    • Antonio Rich
      February 15, 2010 at 1:56 pm

      I was with some friends over the weekend and I was “talking you up”(I’m surprised your ears weren’t burning), and they were following the links to your assorted pages(they liked your hair by the way!). So, there is some alchemy going on–people discovering new avenues, artistically and socially…as Martha Stewart would say “it’s a good thing.” 😉

      • February 15, 2010 at 2:55 pm

        How sweet of you! No, my ears didn’t burn but I guess I was just too involved with the papers I was grading. First papers from my first students and I am deeply disappointed by some of them. I’m under the impression that because I’m funny, about their age (some are actually older than me) and blue-haired, they are not taking me seriously. Too bad for them…

        Anyway, it’s nice to know you like my writing enough to talk about it. And posting a snippet of story a week is definitely a good way for me to stay motivated. Having readers is an incredible confidence booster! Let’s hope it’s enough to push me to finish my first novel (which is another project entirely… and in French so no teasers for you guys.)

    Hi guys! I can’t wait to get caught up and read what’s been posted over the last few days! I took a little weekend roadtrip and did some writing in the car, so I’ll post my next part as soon as I go back through it and type it up. I’m glad I’m not the only one wanting to extend this out – I’m still pretty far from coming full circle with my tale and a full work week looms in front of me in just a few hours from now :(.

    Speaking of wine (above), at dinner the other night there was a wine called “Scout’s Honor” on the menu, so of course I had to order it ;). I also found a jazz bar called Antonio’s :).

    • Antonio Rich
      February 15, 2010 at 12:09 pm

      Oooooo, a jazz bar! Once at a county fair, I saw a food trailer that was called “Antonio’s Italian Sausage.” I’m glad to see my name attached to something a lttle “classier.”

        February 15, 2010 at 2:18 pm

        I really liked this one, Suzanne! I think you’ve taught us all a little lesson about pacing: a beginning, middle, and end, all completed at a smooth, comfortable pace, with an economy of words.

        I’m so glad you participated. I think the vampire giraffe’s preference for eating seniors over kids(who taste like old socks) may, along with Kylie’s NaStyRoMo cheerleader, be my favorite things about NaSty so far! (LOL)

      I’ll pass on the wine…now if you are offering tequilla, count me in. Actually I’m not much of drinker either since one tends to make me sleepy.

    • February 14, 2010 at 6:25 pm

      LOL, the only thing I might still drink sometimes (if it’s cold) is spiced wine. And, I have a bottle Vodka in my drawer for those really strange evenings. But, i have trouble enough keeping my head together sober. Me drunk is not a good thing…

        I’m a huge wine drinker. Well, I’m French so you probably could’ve guessed that one.

    Oh, what’s up with the Nastyromo instead of the name of the person commenting in some of these? Can’t always figure out who it is, though we know each other so well now that you can usually tell. Lol.

    I just found all you guys here. Aheila, you’re a marvel. I don’t think i’ve ever used that word, lol. Anyway, I think I can give my fingers a rest and read more entries now. Antonio-kun, you asked for one more so I did it! 🙂

      I think the only time I use “marvel” is when I talk about the comics . . . .

        I actually own a heavy black velvet cape doubled with red satin. Perfect for cold summer nights. 😉
        I could be NaStywoman… or not.

    Gah! I’m behind in the reading department! I’m sorry. T_T It’s difficult to do school, work, read, and write at the same time!

    Aheila–I posted part 5 of Valentine’s Big Day. (Took forever to write this one!) If you think it can be moved under my name tab, I would appreciate it(takes up alot of room)…Thanks again. 🙂

    • February 14, 2010 at 3:36 am

      I’ll move it right away. 🙂

    You’re so talented Aheila! You can write and you do computers too. I’m thinking of taking some clases to see if they can teach this old dog some new tricks. Damn I was all caught up and now I have more to read. I am writing a bit more on my story as I can find time. We have a trhee day weekend so maybe I can get a new chapter done. I have a title, Incantata (Enchanted)

    • February 13, 2010 at 10:15 pm

      I have added another rambling chapter if any of you are having trouble sleeping.

      • February 14, 2010 at 3:37 am

        Great! I’ll just move your part 3 with the rest!

    Hi kids. Just kicking the tires. Nice, Aheila.

    I’ve had people ask me, already, what the plans are for next year!? If I had to say, I think it would be cool to show Kim’s example to other authors, blogs, reading/book sites, and ask them if they would like to participate. I think it would be interesting to see romance stories from different genres (SciFi,mystery,steampunk,traditional romance,YA romance,etc.). It would allow us to bounce around and try our hand at other forms. And–Also, create more traffic among book lovers visiting other sites/author blogs. A win-win for everybody. And, most importantly–FUN! Anyhoo, a long way to go for those discussions. We’ve still got more to do this year, right? 🙂

    • February 13, 2010 at 8:31 pm

      Every thing sounds pretty good!
      I do hope we have more to do this year. At the same time, I don’t want it to cause me to fail my blog project. I’ll have to write less stories with you guys if we do that again. 🙂

      I need to read a lot more stories.
      Will try after I go to play, but my breathing skills are getting worse.

      I do make comments on the page 🙂

      • February 14, 2010 at 6:26 pm

        Mud, I hope you are doing alright. Your problem is getting better with medication isn’t it?

        Not good – breathing skills are pretty up there in importance ;). Hope you’re feeling better soon…ok really soon!

        Take care M–such a bad time to feel under the weather…

    I have just posted some “prep work” for my next NaSty entry. All little something something for you to mull over until I post the story.

      Indeed! It’s hotter in here. It’s good for creative breeding! XD

    For your information, I have added the link to the compilation page on the home page of this open blog. So if you click on the little house, you’ll find the post that contains the link.

    This way, it won’t get lost in the comments anymore! 🙂
