Countdown Series #1 and #2
Project Goal: To get a first draft of two novels at an estimated 20k each which makes it a total of 40k.
Stage of writing: First Draft
What inspired my current project: I read a story on tumblr and read comments that said someone should write a story based off that topic. The suggestions and my desire to expand on it inspired my own version. It's sci-fi but it takes place in the not too distant future. lol
Week's Total WC: 9852
Total Story WC: 42,406

Victoria took on an icy look, "Well if you didn't want to come, you didn't have to force yourself."
I stopped myself from rubbing my hands on my thighs, "Grace didn't exactly give me a choice."
She softened a bit, "Yeah she can be like that sometimes." After a moment I wondered if she was still mad but instead she said, "Well if we're that bad of company for you we can all go our separate ways after this."
Turning around I gaped, that wasn't what I wanted. "Wait!" She turned around looking at me hauntingly. I was going to have to tell her the truth. Defeated I said, "Look, Dylan is interested in you guys. I was trying to find a way to get out of his way." I rubbed the back of my neck, "Apparently he thinks you both are more interested in me than him."
Victoria turned red, "That's absurd."
Relieved I laughed, "That's what I said." I stood a little straighter, "I just wanted him to have a little more one-on-one time with you guys so I was going to have a little get away afterwards."
