The Writing Front
A Forlorn Harvest
WC: 23,000 first draft
After a few days away from the manuscript I came back today and put in 2200 words, bringing the total to what you see above. I won’t claim that this isn’t a problem riddled document or that it reads terribly well. Right now I am just trying to get words onto the page.
Even though I am 2K short of the minimum 25K goal I do believe that I’ll try and print this manuscript out tomorrow. Then I can sit down and see what is going on with it. It has always been difficult for me to edit on the computer screen. I find I do a lot better if I have the document right there on paper where I can see it all at once.
In somewhat related news, I spent part of last night working on a creation story for the Limb Knitters. I’ve always had a vague idea about their origins but nothing firmly set in stone. It turns out that the exercise was useful even though I am not sure that the Limb Knitters will make a major appearance in A Forlorn Harvest.
As for other writing efforts, once can peek in on some of my homework for the World Building class over at Playing with Genesis.
So far the main effort has been devoted to housework and writing for the novel. Here in a bit I’ll hit the gym for the first workout of the week followed by lunch. For some reason I feel a bit weak and punchy today, not sure what is causing that.
Aside from that, not much else to report.
