Words With Wings
Wow, it’s Friday. Yay! Time to work! Well, write, which is working, only better.
Yet again, I’m fighting the urge to leave everyone and everything hanging and slip back into All Stitched Up and Devan’s world. Drugs and alcohol aren’t this good, or addictive. I sit around all day at the day-job thinking that I just want to go home and write. But I really should update, since I realized I haven’t since Tuesday.
Things are definitely going well. All right, that’s a massive understatement. I feel like I’m flying, they’re going so well. Tuesday, after posting, I wrote 4,212 (yes, after a full day at the day-job). Wednesday, I wrote 3,508 words. It’s taking a lot of self-control not to include the word ‘only’ in that sentence. I know it isn’t only, and I stopped because it was a good place, but there’s something about knowing it’s my lowest total so far that tacks an ‘only’ in there, at least in my head. In any case, last night, I totally shocked myself, pulling off 5141 words! Um, er, I wasn’t trying to do that. It just sort of… happened. I totally blame Devan, and I’m sure he’s one smug bastard about it too. I kept meaning to go to bed, then I couldn’t. I couldn’t make myself stop writing. And it was good stuff too (on the first draft continuum at least). That brings Stitched to a total of 23,205 words. In 5 days. Even I’m looking at that and thinking “Damn!”
There’s still a fair ways to go though, from looking at my outline. I’m not a quarter of the way through this, by any stretch. Hmm, this really is going to be a long first draft. Oh well, more time with Devan. YAY!!!!!! Yeah, okay, I like my Necromancer a little too much. What’s your point? I swear, you will all understand one day why I love this guy so much. Really.
Oh, and that new 10 Years album? Awesome is too tame a word. Right now, I keep going back and forth between Writing on the Wall and Forever fields, with a leavening of the whole album. I don’t think I’ve listened to anything else all week.
I’ve got some good stuff on deck for writing today, and it’s now demanding my attention. Must dash and bang on keyboard to make story. I’ll leave you with a picture though. Until next time!
