I'm rushing 'cause I've got a funeral to go to today in less than 1 1/2 hours and I still need to eat lunch and get ready.
...but I'm almost done :)
Favourite gross-out line of the day?
The trunk smells like... well, I can see why Eric thought a cat got cooked on the engine.
Favourite subtexty-description of the day?
Back in the trees, the chill wind has died down, as if the storm that almost-was is now rethinking where it wants to fall.
But unlike the rain, my mind is set. I’m going to do what I need to do. No more wussing out.
My word-count at this moment is 43,243. Low, but I know there's a lot of things that need clarifying during the editing process. I'm betting the first draft will come in very close to 44,000 words and with editing, I'm guess-timating it'll end up around 55,000 total.
I've already got a small mental list of consistency issues too... like changing all the mentions of Cherry Coke to Wild Cherry Pepsi, having Triss smoke throughout the entire story, Jackson's deck of cards needs to be shown earlier, and I have to weave more music stuff in places where I simply skipped over it to get to the next scene.
...and also I have to make sure the MC isn't strongly skewed towards either gender.
I also have a... quite disgusting *reference* question I need to ask a member of my writing group who, even if he doesn't directly have the answer, knows someone who will.
alcar...I'm lookin' at you ;)
How about you guys? Are you close to making your end-of-the-month-goals?
How about everyone doing NaNo June Camp?
Okay, time to shove something edible down my throat and get changed.
...there's been way too many funerals this past year...
