WABWM: Wed, Sept 26, 2012

7:53 AM

The way I’m feeling, not even the cat would have dragged me in. But whatever.

Cady awaits, and today’s scene, while requiring a replot, is going to be fun to write. I know the core bit, and I can’t wait.

STARTING COUNT: 58,115
GOAL: 1500+
STARTING SCENE: (was The Charity Of Demons. Replot rips that line out entirely, so my title will change, too.)

Get ’em! That’s my plan.

Hope you do, too.


11:48 AM

700 words, and I’m out. I am going to bed, and I will get up when, and only when, I am recognizable as a human being again.

Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, you cannot beat physiology.

Write well.


END NOTE: FOR A WHILE, I’m going to post my daily WABWM run in the forum as I’m writing. When I’m done, I’ll copy my own run, bring it over here, and folks who would prefer to play on the blog can post here.

This is NOT the permanent state of things. I detest duplicating effort, and at the end of the trial run, I’ll decide which of these two formats does better for me, my readers, and the writers who are playing.

    I just want to say that I enjoy having all your thoughts in one place. From a purely selfish/reader/student point of view, it’s just one click in my morning, coffee-driven routine…instead of a few clicks that I (gasp!) have to think about. I like seeing something new, even if it’s small–makes me feel more connected. (And no, it’s not all about me–but maybe I’m typical of many readers.) I also think it’s one of the reasons for the appeal of some of the very successful blogs (like John Scalzi’s Whatever blog)–something new every time you click.

    Hope you feel better tomorrow, Holly!

    I got 424 words tonight, and the Princess is well and truly trapped.

    Today was one of those days where the Muse is rolling his eyes as I make my new (replacement) revision scene card and saying, “Can we get on with it already? I KNOW what’s going to happen.”
    But I made my scene card anyway. Then I wrote six pages of new revision words.

    Scene: Carrying the Moon on his Shoulders
    Totals: 93,984/115k words revised plus these six pages.

    Sometimes I feel overwhelmed by all the fuss about publishing and I worry how I will even begin to find my way through Amazon and reviews and Twitter and all the rest. Luckily, that all goes away when it’s just me and my words.
    I guess it’s one of those things I need to face one day at a time.

      And I hope you’re feeling better soon, Holly! Writing when sick isn’t much fun at all. 🙁
