Word count goals, FTW!

Two days into Camp NaNo and I am hitting my Word Count Goals! Go Me!

Things I have learned about my MC and his family:

His mother is a very imperious woman, when she says something is going to happen, it will happen or else.

His twin is a nice guy, and a little devious too.

His sister-in-law is one of those wonderful women that people like knowing.

His nephew is adorkable, and five years old.

My MC on the other hand is this weird guy who is part cold hearted bastard, part prankster who at some point had a painpill addiction that no one in his family knows about. And he's a hero.

Plus Dom and Damien (the twins) were these total troublemakers back when they were kids.

Quotes from Day Two:

(Dom and Damien, referencing Damien's five year old son and baby-to-be)

"How's Jack?"

"He's doing good, he can't wait until the baby's born so that he can find out if he's a big brother or a big sister."

(Damien, on their childhood)

"Back then I think we looked at a situation, thought about it, and then chose the path with the most excitment."

(Dom, age 12 following a long rant about his order of a chocolate strawberry shake)

"Of course, my brother wants a chocolate banana shake, can you make that too?"

Future quotes:

(Dom and his friend Kyle on Sheriff Delacroix's dislike of Dom)

"You know, it's your fault he ever became sheriff in the first place."
"How do you figure that?"
"You were the one who realized that Sheriff Bright murdered those teens."

(Jane Highband, Dom's mother, on Dom talking about looking for something to do)

"Seriously, you aren't a kid any more, there are no mysteries for you to solve!"

Me: So, you can trasfer to (our company's) Albuquerque office?
S.: Only if you want to live in Arizona.

S.: Curse you computer b**ch!
A.: We need to name it! It's so perky.
S.: We need to give it a happy name. How about Bertha.
A.: How about Sunshine Happyfeet?
C.: Let's go with Bertha.

Me: Damn you, Bertha!
A: What if someone named Bertha came to work here?
S: That would be terrible, we'd be all 'Die Bertha, Die!"
A: Not you Bertha, the computer.

So, I was digging for quotes for my website, and I found these gems:

Being an author is like being in charge of your own personal insane asylum. ~Graycie Harmon

Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia. ~E.L. Doctorow

Substitute "damn" every time you're inclined to write "very;" your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be. ~Mark Twain

To me, the greatest pleasure of writing is not what it's about, but the inner music the words make. ~Truman Capote, McCall's, November 1967

Write your first draft with your heart. Re-write with your head. ~From the movie Finding Forrester

It is impossible to discourage the real writers - they don't give a damn what you say, they're going to write. ~Sinclair Lewis

I have decided upon a new goal.

I would like to meet "Author Unknown" because he offers up the best quotes around.

In other news, I have a lovely cold and am taking cold pills with my regular afraid

"Life would be a whole lot easier if he just went dark and killed off all the annoying people."
--Harry Potter
