Doing a Hard Push on Bashtyk Nokyd—Words: Passed 11,387

Bashtyk-Nokyd-Take-OneI started writing at about 5 AM today, and have made it to over eleven thousand words total.

Hit a while there where it wasn’t work. Where the story flowed for me, and people did the things they did, and surprised me.

My folks are in an interesting spot. Melie is in trouble, Shay is down for the count, the entire crew is getting ready to jump blind—twice—to coordinates none of them can validate.

And someone is trying to kill them.

Writing-wise, THIS is how you define a pretty good day.

Oh, I do. I bought a copy of “Fire in the Mist” brand-new in my teeny-tiny bookstore because it was next to Mercedes Lackey. It took me a while to get hooked on the worldbuilding, which these days is my favorite thing about a good series, but I got SUCH A THRILL when my fourteen-year-old self suddenly figured out why “Seven-Fingered Fat Girl” was a complimentary name. 🙂

Well, after reading your books with mild to moderate to wow-that’s-good enjoyment (chronologically 🙂 I had to come find your blog because HOLY HELL I HAVE TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT ON THE LONGVIEW. And around the Longview. And because of the Longview. This may or may not improve your writing day, but it’s been improving the heck out of my reading ones. So thanks. 🙂

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
