Weekender (2)

Day 43. 151 pages, 69,120 words. Some overlap here, but going well.

Still very swollen and uncomfortable, getting to the point where I need to call the doctor to make sure they haven’t fucked something up. I deflate a bit while I’m lying down, but sitting and walking is painful. “Very painful”, the handy-dandy recovery instructions list as the criteria for calling. How fucking useless and subjective is that? I wouldn’t call this “very painful”, but then I have endured bowel surgery. And this is “frustratingly painful”, all the time.

Yeah, it hurts to walk because this is chafing season and my balls are about 50% bigger than I’m used to and have a fucking surgical incision on either side.

Fuck all this.

Anyway, I got a little tiny pointless session of writing done today, and finally managed to put my stats back in order. Weirdly, this long flatline followed by a spike mirrors exactly the previous book at the same point. I can’t promise I’ll be able to keep up the same momentum, but the shape of the metrics was very interesting. See the Book 6 and Book 7 lines below.

Still been overtaken by Fergunakil, though.

Molran will be hitting the shelves this coming week, I’m just waiting for my cover now.

    “What do you mean by ‘overlap’ there, Hatboy?”

    Well, interested reader, basically how I write this book is to take a wedge of notes at a time, copy it onto my phone, and turn it into chapters either on the phone or by e-mailing the doc to myself. Then I fold it back into the master doc.

    This time, it was so freaking long since I’d been able to open the master doc, I had a big block of chapters and notes, and I’d moved a bunch of stuff around. And when I pasted the chapters back into the master doc I didn’t have time to figure out which notes I had incorporated into chapters and which were still floating around, so I pasted the leftovers in and I suspect they’re now a bit doubled-up. With any luck that won’t happen again, because now I have all the remaining notes in my working doc, so they can be worked up into the final 8 chapters or so.

    I would definitely call the doctor, every person I’ve known to undergo this procedure previously was recovered in 3-4 days.
