  • Fri, 20:35: And there's Pinch One, done. *buffs nails* I can, on occasion, turn a phrase. #amwriting
  • Fri, 21:27: Did I say something egregiously offensive today, or did I just get boring? I seem to be bleeding followers.
Over My Head

There's an END at the bottom of the Coffee Story.

It came in at just under 4200 words, so I've got some whackage to do, but anyone can cut 5% of the manuscript and still have it be good, if not vastly improved thereby. I will completely ignore the fact that I usually add words rather than subtract them in edits and just sit here and be happy that my first draft is done.

Now I have a week to beat it into some semblance of shape. But all in all, I'm happy with it. Alex is a delight to write and I always have fun with him.

And then I get to start on the cyborg story. After a brainstorming session with my Writing Buddy tonight, I at least have a semblance of Plot for that one; it's due the 15th of September. I'll spend tomorrow on edits for the coffee story and outlining the cyborg story.

And someday, I'll put the final finishing touches on the cat-hoarding dragon story as well. That one got back-burnered because Deadlines, but it's nearly done.
