Here’s today’s progress on my comic/sci-fi young adult project where a girl becomes a ninja and fights aliens with much ass-kicking and many LOLs but not a whole lot of kissing (or any kissing, to be frank) plus BONUS Bruce Lee’s ghost, a vintage Thunderbird, zenlightenment on the fly, and fat stacks of Cool Ranch Doritos.
Project: Ninja Planet
Deadline: Sooner rather than later
New words written: 833 (plus some editing/revising)
Present total word count: 54,041 words
Things accomplished in fiction: It’s all over but the shouting. Actually, the shouting’s over, too.
Things accomplished in real life: Daily jaunt around the neighborhood with the dog; went and got my hair did; nice long phone call with Yanni; inbox kept down to zero, go me.
Other: DRAFT ZERO, Y’ALL. It’s a rough draft zero – the second half is particularly rough, I’ll grant you. But the book … she is whole. And I am happy. And now I’m going to get dressed up and go to Mary’s birthday party. [:: throws confetti ::]
Number of fiction words so far this year: 15,023
