Here’s today’s progress on my fifth Clockwork Century novel – a book about teenage juvenile delinquents, hypothetical ghosts, and gangland mayhem within the walled city of Seattle … now with Bonus! zombie Sasquatch and the return of everyone’s favorite elderly cross-dressing Native American princess:
Deadline: September 15, 2011
New words written: 1794 (meh)
Present total word count: 88,359 words
Things accomplished in real life: Daily run/climb plus yoga; handed in day-job progress report for the week; cleaned entire apartment; went to Walgreens; went to post office.
Other: It’s a lean word count, but (a). I had a lot of other things on my plate today, and (b). I have to call it a day a little early, as I’m meeting some out-of-towners for drinks/supper in another half hour. I should probably brush my hair or something.
Relevant Links: Today’s linky goodness is as follows:
Glass of Fancy blog discovers steampunk – and likes Boneshaker well enough to put it in a little arrangement with Bioshock figures, which tickled me silly.
New Bloodshot review – Which I accidentally linked yesterday and called a “Boneshaker review” because that’s what happens when I blog too hastily. Alternative Magazine totally dug it. Yes, it’s a UK magazine. Bloodshot either just came out over there…or is about to come out, I’m not sure which. Thus the rash of extra publicity.
Do you want a Ganymede ARC? Would you like to read it before everybody else? While supporting a good cause? Because I totally threw in one of my ARCs to the Coilhouse fundraising auction. Go check it out!
