A Good Day

Day 1. 0 pages, 0 words.

Again, nothing much to report. I’ve started chipping away at the short stories. Some of them are a mere half-page of notes, others are already in excess of 40 pages. I’m not sure whether the ones I have started here on the blog – most notably The First Feast – should be finished here. I guess, out of fairness, I should publish them here.

Some others, like Black Honey Wings, are already complete and need nothing more than a once-over for continuity and basic writing quality. Which I hope is pretty equal between the blog and my books, but who knows?

Others still, they will be entirely new creations.

I’m also not sure whether I should put a running word count and timer on the blog for them. I don’t know if 70 days will do it. Short stories are a new animal. Plus, they’re all in separate docs. Perhaps, when I finish one and move it across into the final publishing template, I’ll throw a note here. But I guess to make that worth doing, I’d need to add a Day count.

Ahh, what the heck. I’ll put one on here. Just keep in mind, the 70 day deadline does not apply.

Today is a good day.

    *pained silence*

  2. I may have a bit of a mercenary heart but I don’t know about fairness, still, with regards to posting the rest of the stories you started on the blog. I think your fans are of the polite sort that won’t tear you up for not posting, and the parts you’ve posted here serve more as teasers, I think. Think of them like a really long trailer. 😀

      Yeah, I think the only unfinished one was The First Feast, and you folks – my constant readers and commenters – are the only ones even slightly invested there.

      Plus, I will probably make a few changes and upgrade the bits I posted, not altering them so much as augmenting. So it might be nonsensical to post the last parts here on top of the old ones.

      • I can’t wait to see it finished, though, so in that sense I’m now talking against my best interests. If you don’t post it here then it’ll be a longer while ’til I get it in my hands as I’ll need to wait for the book to come out! 😀

        I still stand by my words though. Professional ethics demand it.
