Book of the Still

I suppose it's the last day now

Miraculously, and with only a little bit metric shedload of creative accounting in adding in words from fics that may never get finished, I have only 683 words to go, which I suppose means my average is almost exactly on target (a complete misrepresentation, as almost all the writing I've done has been in big bursts over a night or two).

How's everyone else doing?

Also, I watched Elizabeth: the Golden Age instead of writing.

I didn't get my 666 words written yesterday. Well, I didn't Monday either, but I figured 2000 words Sunday night would count for three days. And Tuesday I did manage 700 words of probably trash, so I'm not that behind.

But instead of fleshing out the stubs of ideas that I had Sunday, I tried coming up with something new: a new story, which I'm trying to synthesize without really knowing what happens yet, & I want it to be as a comic-book script. It's giving me hives. I have two potential plots, I'm thinking about page layouts, I tried to make up a new superhero(ine) & can't quite name her...some form of Talabarte, perhaps—all this nonsense I put in my own way. Maybe I should just stick with prose for this month.

So, whatcha writin'?

It's Hallowe'en in my time zone, which means two things:

1. We really need to clean our house before that inspection next week.

2. One day until the 666words challenge begins!

So if you have a project in mind, this is the time to tell us about it. If, you know, you're comfortable discussing drafts and so forth.
