Smash!

I’ve hit a wall. Well, sort of. I got to about 235,000 words in my Emo Space Dudes story and realized that I’ve kind of painted myself into a corner with part of the plot. I’m still pretty excited about the story overall, though.

I sent it to a beta reader, so I’ll see what happens. In the meantime, I’ve been watching/reading a whole bunch of really disparate things and they’re all starting to mush together in the back of my head, hooray!

And that’s about all the excitement that is exciting, other than someone just brought me dinner. Yum!

225K Down!

I’m closing in on a quarter of a million words in one document. More specifically, one story.

I have no idea how it happened, but there we are.

I think I’m going to need to send it to a beta-reader sooner rather than later, because I’m not sure if I want to keep certain parts of it. I’m pretty happy with it over all, honestly.

It’d be nice to have an actual title, or even just a working title.

As of 10:12 PM PST, on August 13, 2017…

I have reached 200,000 words in the first draft of whatever this is that I’m writing.

Two. Hundred. Thousand. Words.

It’s not done.
I don’t know what I’m doing.
I don’t even have a clue as to what it might end up as.

But you know what? I don’t care.

I’m just going along with it and I’m letting it happen. It’s only the first draft. It’s okay if it’s not perfect when I get to the end, because I can fix it.

Onward to 225K!
