Day 55. 175 pages, 86,254 words.
This is my 990th blog post, and I have 15 days left until my line-in-the-sand deadline (or deadline-in-the-sand) for Molran’s first draft. I have a sneaking suspicion I may not make it. So much to do lately and so stressed out that things just aren’t happening. Plus, as proud as I have been about the consistent non-bloat size of my first five books, this one looks like it’s going to be bigger. The early chapters were too big, too many. Maybe they can be cut but that will be sad.
Up to the editors.
I wanted to finish Molran for post #1000, but short of a solid week with absolutely nothing to do but write, eat, and sleep, that’s definitely not going to happen.
Danged if I know what I’m going to do for the millennium, either. I get the idea it should be something pretty damn special but I have no ideas. Maybe an Edpool- / Witty-Retort-hosted Oscars-esque retrospective on the last thousand posts…
Yes, that has potential.
To be continued.
