Any chance…? And I PROMISE I’ll stop asking after Halloween. That’s my cutoff. I swear.

Here’s recent progress on my modern gothic ghost story about a salvage crew trapped in a doomed southern mansion – now with a crunchy murder ballad center and Bonus! clandestine cemetery where the stones don’t match the bodies (and were never meant to). As inspired by a (semi)true local legend:
Project: The Family Plot
Deadline: January 15, 2015
New words written: 2070
Present total word count: 35,785
Things accomplished in fiction: Had a nice cup of coffee and brought one back for a friend; learned that maybe everyone is seeing things; everybody has a ghost story; someone proposed a chain saw.
Things accomplished in real life: Neighborhood jaunts with dog; weekend+ visit with mom; much eating at various assorted restaurants because I don’t cook; some shopping here, there, and everywhere; lots of laundry; transplanted a lovely gift into one of the outdoor planters, for it should probably be just fine over the winter; went to the grocery store.
Yardwork Other: Got basically all the last stuff DONE. I could stand to do some weeding, but that’s about it. I finished edging/trimming all the things, did some pruning, and so forth…and now it’s basically as ready for winter as it’s going to get.
Number of fiction words so far this year: 186,866
Bonus: ZenCat is hella-zen.
