NaNo 2009 - Snippet!

Oh, my, has it ever been an age since I posted... well, you know the story. Busy, busy, busy...

Anyway, against my better judgement, I'm doing NaNo again this year. But just for the insanity part. :D

My villain just did away with her first victim, and I thought I'd share. Enjoy the evil!


At first, he thought she’d missed, because he didn’t feel anything. But she wasn't acting like she had missed. She was just sitting there. Watching him. And looking thoughtful.

Then he saw something drooping down into his field of vision from above. He could barely see it if he crossed his eyes and looked up, but there appeared to be a miniature dart embedded in his forehead.

“What the… what is that?” he asked, his voice sounding far away.

Wynonna gave him a thoughtful, assessing gaze that sent chills down his spine. Or maybe that was something in the dart. It was hard to say really.

Finally, she answered him. “A prototype.”

And that was the last thing he heard before the dart dissolved into a small cloud of nanobots that bored into his brain.

nice to see you arthaey! are you doing nano this year? how is your re-write coming??

Yup, I'm doing NaNo again. Struggled the first week because I had no story ;) but now I think I'm on to something.

I have a lot of notes for things to change and/or add to last year's story (which wants to be a trilogy, apparently), but I haven't actually rewritten it yet.

Thanks for asking! :)
