KO BABY!!!!!

HEY GUESS WHO JUST FINISHED THE ROUGH DRAFT OF HER NOVEL?????? (Which I have now decided IS Fire in the Belly.)

Today's word count: 7857 (NEW RECORD!)
Cumulative Write-a-thon word count: 99231
Average daily word count: 2918.56

OH YEAH BITCHES

I DID IT WOOOOOOOOOO! I haven't written anything novel-length since Throne of Nightmares in 2007. And I admit, I was scared - maybe I couldn't do it any more. But I just did it! And I finished my write-a-thon goal with a week to spare! Now to let it stew and percolate a bit, give my head time to clear, and the dreaded editing process will begin. I feel like this one will edit a lot faster than ToN (which took three years), because if nothing else I think I've grown a lot as a writer since then and have a much clearer sense of how I want to put this bad boy together.

Soundtrack for writing this was primarily from Serenity, Firefly, and the three Transformers movies. Yet in spite of the latter, my novel contains only one explosion, and it doesn't happen in slow motion. And no one runs away from it. So yeah. (What can I say... didn't much like those movies, but I think they have excellent scores.)

And yeah. That's all I have to say. Because my brain has now lost its ability to produce words.

EXCEPT OH YEAH YOU SHOULD TOTALLY PLEDGE MONEY NOW THAT I'VE DELIVERED THE GOODS! :D


Like what I'm doing? Pledge your support!


Favorite sentence I've written today: The rocks snarled like living things and then the world cracked, lightning and gunshot and bone but more visceral, a sound that touched her at the base of the brain and told her to fucking run.

Congratulations! I know how good it feels to finally finish something.

That favorite sentence is pretty awesome, but I think the "but more visceral" lessens its impact. /drive-by editor
