We interrupt your regularly scheduled #WriteMotivation update because X-MEN TRAILER!!
Days of Future Past was one of the first X-men stories I ever read, one of these children’s novelizations that were published back in the early ’90s. It was a heartbreaking story, and I hated reading about how many of my favorite characters had died in the future. Even so, it was a good story, and I’ve been really, really excited for this movie ever since I found out they were adapting Days of Future Past.
The trailer scenes between Magneto and Professor X in the future are just killing me. I’ve always enjoyed their dynamic in the movies, and it’s so nice to see something that looks good with Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen after the awfulness that was X-men: The Last Stand.
Anyway, on to the update!
– Write 10k on NaNo novel.
Stretch goal: Finish it.
Woot! Managed to hit 10k yesterday. Apparently I need to write more fight scenes and characters snarking at each other; they’re great for the word count.
On the upside, I also figured out what happens with the last major plot thread I hadn’t quite ironed out. On the downside, that pretty much requires me to add an extra 3,000 words to the story, which means there ain’t no way this is getting finished in March. OH WELL. We’ll see how far I can get before next week.
– Edit 5 more chapters of MGG.
Stretch goal: Finish paper edits.
I’ve edited three chapters now, woo!
– Write all Ferret A-Z posts.
One’s scheduled, a second is mostly written, and two more are outlined. I need to pick it up on this goal.
– Read 2 books.
I’m 63% of the way through The Lotus Palace, still 15% of the way through The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, and have added The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe to my list. THAT ONE’S FOR YOU, JESS.
ONE WEEK LEFT IN MARCH, PEOPLE. LET’S DO THIS THING.
