When you go, you’re gone forever

Here’s today’s progress on my modern gothic about two lady academics investigating the case of a mystery woman who was murdered and stuffed in a tree forty years ago – with Bonus! lovely ghosts, sinister messages from beyond, creepy small town shenanigans, and a New Southern Weird vibe (as inspired by a true story that happened way the hell elsewhere):

    Project: Cinderwich
    Deadline: April 30
    New words written: 1973
    Present total word count: 40,373

    Things accomplished in real life: Took the dogs on their morning jaunt around the neighborhood; went to grocery store (yet again, but it’s just around the corner); went through and responded to all necessary queries in the pass proofs for The Agony House; received/read through/rejoiced re: the last round of edits for The Toll [or so it is to be hoped].

    Things accomplished in fiction: Went looking for an unmarked grave in an abandoned cemetery. Get your stamping pens ready, because that one’s on your Gothic Cliche Bingo Card.

    Other: Over the weekend, the weather was nice so I got started on a little bit of spring yard work. At least the patio area now looks like civilized people are taking care of it, as opposed to a couple of slackers who just let everything die and then get dug up by a pair of dogs. Ahem. Next weekend [maybe]…the back yard, which will be quite the undertaking. It’s actually pretty big, and it’s a wreck. [We don’t have a front yard, per se.]

    Number of fiction words so far this year: 10,973

    Leider kann ich kein Englisch. WennSie wüsten, wie Google Ihre Post so übersetzt, Sie würden vor Lachen nicht in den Schlaf kommen. Aber es ist doch sehr interessant, Ihren Past zu folgen.
