Here’s today’s progress on the new steam-horror fin de siecle project about ghosts, guilt, elder gods, and monster-hunting in the aftermath of two gruesome murders:

    Project: (tentative title) Maplecroft
    Deadline: None
    New words written: 878
    Present total word count: 4508 words

    Things accomplished in fiction: Started chapter two. Changed narrators, so was a little slow starting. Switching voices doesn’t come easily to me; and it’ll be another 10,000 words or so before I can slip back and forth between them easily.

    Things accomplished in real life: Day-job work; morning run (21 minutes); worked on Bloodshot rewrites. That’s pretty much it. These rewrites are eating my life.

    Other: I’m so tired of staring at my computer. So tired.

    Total Official Word Count of 2010: 27,564 words
