And by some miracle, I hit my word goal. Anu was cooperative once I gave him no opportunity to bolt on me. He might not appreciate it but, he's much easier to work with when I have him leashed.
An excerpt, just to prove that I really am making progress:
Sevda looked worriedly at the door and back to the other djinn, who was still strapping an entire arsenal of blades and charms to his chest. 'All these centuries and this woman.. this human... this is what you're going to risk losing your head over? I don't think this is such a great idea, Anu. Even if you are bound to her.'
'She's the only one who's ever been worth anything and if they've hurt her..' Anu couldn't finish the thought. Not out loud but it carried on in his twin hearts, the agony pulsing with their beats. 'Bound or not, I won't leave her to be their pet and I'm not letting her die alone.' He wasn't letting her die at all, if he could help it. 'You know, that's always been your problem, Sev,' he said without looking up, tightening the blade holster on his thigh.
'What? My overabundance of logic and steadfast persistence in keeping my head attached to my neck?' Her arms crossed over her chest as her worry manifested in an aura of jeweled fire surrounding her.
Anu smirked darkly, his eyes blazing sapphire as his own powers swarmed, encasing him in pluming flames. 'No. Thinking.'

Sort of. It's a two-fold post. One, to make sure my feed is posting links to my Facebook page and two, I'm giving myself a goal for completing the two novels I've started. I'm going to lock myself out of social media until I've made my daily word count. This is it. Impossible? Maybe. Insane? Definitely. But I eat pressure for breakfast. You know.. after I've had my coffee. New Year's Eve, brace yourself. Sig and Anu are coming.

..I should stop playing around online and get to work. And you're right. As soon as I settle in to the back to school schedule and catch up all the requisite appointments. I do try to write on the go with my iPad but, environmental factors are putting the kibosh on that. What factors? Up until 2 days ago, the heat index was well into the 100's here and it kept tripping the heat sensor on my iphone and ipad. Bastard. But, I'm going. Sig and Anu are impatient. Old story ideas are rearing their ugly heads again. And new ones are clawing to be seen. On that note, Sig.. Anu.. meet Araxas. You boys play nice until I get around to all of you.
