Well, Psychic is in the final stages of the first draft, and I've officially reached the 50K line for NaNo. All I can say (as much as I love my book) is: finally!!!

On that note, another Twilight fanfic is underway: A Cullen Story. This is basically a redo of the classic 1984 movie, A Christmas Story, but with a twist...

Jasper Whitlock is a ten-year-old boy who is living in Indiana with his half-brother Edward and their foster parents Carlisle and Esme. Jasper, already grumpy from the cold weather (he's originally from Texas) and being ignored by the pretty neighbor girl Mary Alice, decides that the only thing he wants for Christmas is a Replica Stonewall Jackson Civil War Confederate Rifle BB gun. But everyone from Carlisle and Esme to his school teachers to Santa says 'You'll shoot your eye out!' What is Jasper going to do?!

I should be posting the first chapter within the first few days of December.

Official Pics

Okay. So, here are the "official" character pics for Psychic.




Benson Twins:
(...and Jasper. And no, this did not have anything to do with the whole Twilight thing.)
The Professor:
Well, here's what I've got right now. Tell me what you think, I can't read your minds. I leave that to Steph.

For Those of You Who Want to Read it...

Wow! I just installed a map for the blog, to see where you guys are all coming from. There's Germany, Slovenia, Brazil, Czech Republic, Finland--that's pretty darn cool.

So anyway, I'm about 52 pages (MicrosoftWord) into Psychic, and the plot bunnies are biting me in the butt. One word for you guys: plot. It's a serious pain in the buttinsky, believe you me. If you want to read it, then go to my LiveJournal page; it's on there.

In the meantime, more boring banners, because I can't seem to stop making them:

(TAPS: When 'home just isn't good enough.--cheesy, I know, but it was like 1 in the morning; I got bored.)

(T.A.P.S. Transylvanian Academy of Psychic Senses)

(She just doesn't LOOK homicidal--Carrie.)

Psychic Update/Covers

Another update. The first 5,000 words have been written. So far it's all about Bridge at the IPS (International Police Squadron), but it's turning out much better than expected. I even have a great bomb-diffusing scene. I finished the book cover (early draft, anyway) and I'm waiting for it to get to the good part. Here's some more posters (since you're all sick to death of them by now):
(No. 1: my first draft; not using this one much)
(No. 2: not using this one much either. It looks like the cover to a museum guidebook.)
(No. 3: yeah, I'm using this one.)
