Sometimes, I seriously wonder why I bother writing anything down, if the intended recipient is going to pretend it was never written at all. Literacy might as well not exist any more, it seems.

Off to Tassie for Christmas and New Year.

Verdi is going to be alone for a little while until ironicshell and friend turn up on Boxing Day to feed and water him, and then Kelly arrives to stay on the 27th.

Call Emma's mobile if you need to.

Not quite so old as the last post; again under the cut. I would have submitted it to Erato, if there were any hope of it being published again in the near future: so instead, here it is. Contact your local AICSA choir to look at the full ROCS newsletter (“What's the SCOR?”), which should have been mailed to your society's address sometime recently.

Greetings! HA HA HA HA HA!

Here’s a “golden-oldie” from the depths of time, underneath the lj-cut. Originally written for the RMPS “members-only” website, this is its first outing in public.

My little plan to hit 100,000 words was derailed by needing to sleep on the night of the 29th; at that stage I had reached 86,000, and I really needed to be closer to 91,000. I wrote about 7,000 words on the last day, but there was no way I was going to be able to write 14,000. I had given up on the idea of a sprint to the end by about 8 pm, and went back to my usual style this month, trying to write a reasonable quality of first draft, rather than slavishly chasing after the word count.

Very lengthy novel stats under the lj-cut.Collapse )

If I printed it out as a paperback novel (my PDF is set to have approximately the same line/word count as a paperback) it would currently be 340 pages. And I'd say I'm only halfway there!

Except the word validator on the website subtracts 300 words compared to the word count in TextWrangler.

So, I only need add about another 100 or so words in the next 11 days.

No sweat.

Not feeling terribly inspired today, but will press on regardless... Maybe I'll go and write the "bloodbath" chapter.

And I'm writing on two different fronts, having realised after writing a page or two of dialogue that it can't have happened yet. So that will have to go into a chapter entitled "LATER"...
