Sleeping Beauty

We traveled to see the in-laws today. We also picked up our weekly stash of comics, and Bryon tore down a chunk of prom (yes, the life of a high school teacher is glamorous.)

I spent most of the day comatose for tax purposes. Yup, I’m still recovering, and my body decided I need to really sleep. A lot.

So, today’s word count isn’t where I want it, but I’m grateful I have anything at all. I’ll take it.

16064 / 90000 words. 18% done!

I think I’m going to write something about Paradise Kiss sooner rather than later. I also have a few documents to get around for Wiscon that I’d better get on.

Oh, and where can I get a lady’s tux these days? For rental? Am I just going to have to muddle through with a men’s tux?

Finally, I am on Dreamwidth now. Under cathschaffstump. Um…it will be a mirror of Writer Tamago, so no need to go over there if you’re looking at this content. Unless you want to.


Trolling for Dollars

Okay, true believers. We begin the mad dash of writing 50K this month on the troll novel. We begin the troll novel with 13,461 words. We will need to add 1615 words per day to make our count of an additional 50K. It’s my hope to completely lay the pipe for Part One (the teen part) and begin Part Two (the college student part). At the end of the month, I should have around 61K.

Have I mentioned I really like writing Old Nick? Yeah? Well, for the record again, I do. The adult troll/Nick scene will need some polishing, but we’ll get there. We also wrote the missing cow scene. Remember, milk is important in Norwegian folklore!

Tonight’s word count meter, then.
