Oh well. Day's not over yet. I've hit my weekly goal, but another 500 would be nice. Another 800 would be awesome, because that would kick me over 60K.
Speaking of wordcount, I poked through my not!Iron Man tag tonight and saw that my wordcount for the year as of July was 26,400. Add that to the 59,000 I've done so far on this story, since then, and whoa. I've never, I don't think, had a year this productive--certainly not since I started writing original fiction, anyway. And I'd like to say that I can take credit for it, but, really, the sad fact is that I can't.
Because, let's face it, y'all, the Muse didn't get jumpstarted until I saw Iron Man. And he didn't really kick it into gear until I had the brilliant idea of TWO, TWO Robert Downey, Jr., characters in the same story. And thus a novel, for this natural short-story writer, has been born.
Not that Alex and Ben bear much resemblance at all to Tony and Harry anymore, nope, they're mine mine all mine now, but we takes our inspiration where we gets it, right?
