draft is done and editing is underway. i’ve included useful notes to myself, such as “make better.”

One day soon I hope to stop providing dull word count updates and just have like, “query letter is done,” and “i have an agent now, whaaaaaat’ but you know, those are still dreams. (I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have a query letter partially drafted, though. Anyone have some ideas for titles?)

About 800 words shy of 65k, which means I am almost officially done this chapter. I have one more to go and might swap it out with this one since this one feels very end-y. But holy moly. This thing is just about done.

60,000 words and this thing is almost done. ~2 chapters left to go. On to editing next. I can’t believe this is happening.

30,000 words in a month. Some of them even good words.

I’ve apparently been possessed by the ghost of another, better writer. Like, damn.

Well, fuck 2020. 2021 is a new year and a new book, apparently. 15,000 words since I started at the beginning of this month. So it goooooes.

i guess i’m writing six books concurrently now. damn it, why.

and i have an idea for a spinoff series. can’t we get one series done before writing another? no? cool.

oh. i guess we’re finishing the draft this weekend. 12k words in two days. good lord.

one more batch of edits and this thing is going out to agents.

been trying to hit 1k/day to wrap this thing up. or i could delete two unfinished chapters and just beast through 6k in one sitting. that also works.

broke 75k words! dreading the culling at the end of the book that will drop that number back down, but progress is progress.

why did i decide to write a novel again? rewrites are hell, honestly. but i can’t stop, which is a problem in and of itself.

i abandon mastodon for a few weeks and look what happens. well, lesson learned. i’ll never leave you again ❤️

legal pot has made this statement plausible: “you wanna make bellinis and get fucked up on chocolate tonight?”

had a dream i was watching arthur on pbs, but it had a lot more profanity, sex, and violence. i remember thinking it was weird that they didn’t bleep the curse words on a kids’ show.

yep.

similarly, a sexual harasser and sex pest with a fast and loose concept of consent proclaims himself to be the most feminist man.

listening to the burn it down episode of this american life, and this white dude claiming another white dude was absolutely not a racist even though he said some super racist shit and dropped some racial slurs.

aside from the obvious contradiction there, why does any white person have any authority on this subject..? why do they believe that they do?

“a sincere request from magic academy faculty: please do not use portals as magical glory holes. aside from the concerns around sexual harassment, it’s basically playing Russian roulette with your genitals. nursing staff have vowed not to regrow any more lost or mangled members until this has been addressed. you have been warned.”

well. i’m over the fucking moon today. i hope y’all have a wonderful day too.
