  • Sat, 08:20: Remember how I said I was going to go over wordcount? I'm 17 shy of 7500 w/WAY more to go. ARGH. Well. Write now. Cut after. #amwriting
  • Sat, 08:27: I WAS going to set something on fire, but I don't have room. It's pretty dire for them anyway, so maybe I don't need it. #amwriting #context
  • Sat, 09:10: Stitching this thing together after a major plot change is fun. #not Why did I decide to do this again?
  • Sat, 09:13: Been banging my head on this thing for three hours. Nearly have a handle on it. Gotta figure out how to ratchet tension when help's coming.
  • Sat, 10:47: Oh, look, after excising a bunch of extraneous words and plot, I've blown through 7500 ANYWAY. *beats story* STOP THAT. #amwriting
Over My Head

I hate this story so very much.

But I think that's Draft. It is, at the least, END. That's 1400 words net on the thing on my day, and it's coming in at 8145.

Understand that the folks I'm writing it for want a soft 7500-word limit.

Also understand that I need to interject MOAR GHOSTS into the thing. Somewhere. Somehow. And it ends rather abruptly.

But it's a draft. I'm not real happy with it, but that's what editing is for. At least I'll have something for my Writing Buddy tomorrow.
