Went out to Mary’s again today, and this time, I actually came up with a better word count. Not as good as yesterday, but still well over a thousand words – so if I want to catch up to averaging 1k/day for 2013, I’m on my way.
So here’s today’s progress on my fin de siecle gothic epistolary, now with Bonus! ghosts, guilt, and the threat of elder gods in the aftermath of two gruesome unsolved murders:
Deadline: None at present
New words written: 1789 (ok)
Present total word count: 26,668 words
Things accomplished in fiction: If these people could quit being so afraid of each other and start talking, a whole lot of really helpful information could be shared. But also, this would be a shorter, less credible book, so…
Things accomplished in real life: Daily jaunt around the neighborhood with the dog; went out to Mary’s parents’ place; gossiped/hootnannied with other writers; not much else.
Other: The day is still young, yes, but I will try to get some Bonus! editorial work done on Ninja Planet this afternoon.
Number of fiction words so far this year: 22,681
