This weekend was another busy one, with Eris’s Marvel-themed birthday all day Saturday. (Go say happy birthday to her!) Seriously, we started watching Iron Man at 10:30 a.m.
Also, there were mimosas. It was awesome.
Anyway. Goal updates!
1) Write 30k on the urban fantasy story. (And really, I should think up a title while I’m at it…)
My word count on the actual story is 17,733, and I think I’m about 1/4 to 1/3 of the way through. And then there are the three random short scenes I wrote (same world, same characters, post-novel continuity) that total about 4,500 words.
Why? Because apparently I can’t actually write a novel without writing random scenes about what happens AFTER.
And you get an unedited excerpt, as well:
“Why the hell should I help you?”
The werewolf loomed over me. “Because if you help me, I can forget you were ever here.”
Shit. Visions of a trespassing charge danced in my head. “You wouldn’t tattle to the wizards.”
“If it would keep them off my back so I can find this thing? You’d better believe it.”
“You’re bluffing,” Mick said.
His smile was almost genial. “Try me.”
Mick hissed softly.
I was about to be stuck between a wolf and a snake each trying to out-intimidate the other. Fantastic.
2) Read at least 4 books.
Pretty much the same place it was last week.
3) Revise first 3 chapters of TSB.
Same place it was last week.
4) Post 2-3 times/week on the blog.
So far, so good. I have two other movie reviews that are half-written, so I’ll have to finish them up and schedule them for later this week. (Plus, I’ve got a post for the RRFS blog that needs to be edited and uploaded.)
5) Finish crits on Cloudy for Eris. (NEW)
Done and delivered on Friday. 😀
