Fast Draft Day 016

I admit, I’ve been getting a little discouraged with these 1K days.  That’s not “Fast Draft.”  Plus the month is almost over and I have at least 1/3 of a novella to write yet.  Then I remember that I have made great progress this month, and if I need an extra week or so in May to finish, so be it.  I’d rather have a solid foundation to revise than a bunch of crap slung on the page.

Speaking of which:  does anyone want to do a MayNoWriMo?  I’m not sure if I can commit to 50K in May, but I’ve had a few people ask me about it on Twitter.  I’m considering it — but I do wish I’d already finished BGW.  (By the way:  Coyote Con is postponed indefinitely because of Deena’s health.  We’re hoping to take a look at our fall schedule.)

Today’s words: 1,235

Total:  26,241

Snippet:

“I am a creature of magic, blood, and yes, violence.  The dreams we shared are only the beginning of my true self revealed to you.”

“Then show me some more.”

P.S. I won’t be shooting for Dark & Early tomorrow. I’m just too tired and too stressed at the Evil Day Job. I’ll shoot for a fairly early day on Saturday instead — and hope I can squeeze in another 1K over lunch or tomorrow evening.  If I post a day 017, it’ll be late as a result.

  1. with every snippet this story is pushing every single of my reader buttons! Hope you get unstressed soon. If you were going to do Maywrimo I would try to join in

  2. If I can use the progress I’m making with ROW80 for Maynowrimo then count me in! Maybe with the added incentive of working a little EVERY day. Instead of just on my row80 progress report days. *sheepishg*

  3. Count me in for MayNo. I need to finish the revisions on the vampire novel that I was supposed to have done by 31 March…. :roll: Life, she does throw the curve balls ever so well….
