April Fool in big black letters on a Dead End sign

Here’s today’s progress on my comedic murder mystery about an inconsistently clairvoyant travel agent who prevents a Seattle detective from participating in a plane crash – and together, they fight crime! Now with Bonus karaoke parlor tricks, a snarky best friend in a cast, and a fish named Brutus:


    Project: Far-Fetched
    Deadline: September 8
    New words written: 2625
    Present total word count: 15,801


    Things accomplished in real life: Walked the dogs; cleaned the whole house; did several loads of laundry; picked up my contacts; went to the post office; lunch with a friend; started playing We Happy Few with my husband and it’s buggy/glitchy as hell sometimes – but overall a fun game so far.

    Things accomplished in fiction: Klairvoyant Karaoke!…wherein our heroine takes requests for personal objects, and chooses/sings a song for their owners based on whatever her feeble clairsentience tells her when she handles them. Practice makes perfect, and her skills are gradually improving.

    Other: That’s not a multi-day total, but I flaked out yesterday and didn’t get any writing done. I’m trying to average at least a thousand words a day, but I really need to work faster if I want to finish this early in September. Eh, I can do it. I just have to buckle down and make it happen. If the rest of my life would quit getting in the way, that would be awesome.

    Number of fiction words so far this year: 40,709
