I originally titled this entry “Back t the Grindstone,” but I thought that was a kind of a crappy title–which it is, isn’t it? The Dare is not supposed to be a grindstone. It’s supposed to be fun. And luckily, it is. I’m pretty stoked to work on my semi-secret project with Jeff (my brother), but it’s got a bit of a lead-time, and I’m making tons of promises when it comes to delivering my Stealing the Sun series. So that’s the mainline path for now.
And this is still a lot of fun to fiddle with.
More on Brigid’s double play in a bit, but let me say here that now I’ve been working with the currently titled STARDUST a bit, the alien environment is getting a little easier to slip into. That’s helpful because, since this was my first day back from Las Vegas—meaning I had a few odds and ends to catch up on (both “work” and personal). Results for the day were pretty good, though: Finished blowing out an entire new chapter. Add it up and it counts to about 1,150 new words and a couple hundred “recycled.”
With luck I’m set up for a pretty good run tomorrow, though.
Total Dare Word Count Now: 11,500
Total Book: 14,800 words
Brigid Update: From what I can tell via twitter posts, Brigid is now in the process of showing me with putting not one, but two novels in the air at the same time. Yikes!
Full mug of tea, half a sleeve of thin mints, 1600 words on the Novel I’m Not Supposed to be Writing. Not bad for a Wednesday afternoon.
