Exactly 20 words per post (before this one).

I rounded for inaccuracies because it was an appropriate guesstimate.

That probably also includes words I've quoted, though.

What did you write?

Edit: Also, doesn't 31/366 look like January didnt do anything to the year?

Working on a new novel, an idea that I've been kicking around for a looooong time. Not going in sequence, and using lots of time to sketch out ideas, outline, brainstorm, organize. I have something like 28,000 words so far in just over a month, would be happy if 5000 are usable.

Yeah, there's so much time left in the year, it's ridiculous. Still not even 1/10 of the way in.

Since the Chinese are on holiday or dying from the plague, I decided to take one more pass on book three. It turns out it really needed it, but I think I'm happy with it now.

Still going strong! Now at 54 days, put another way:



I'm actually going to refocus a bit and think about turning one "chapter" I've been working on into a short story, sort of like a proof-of-concept for the whole thing. Might share that. Submit it somewhere. idk.

If you're looking for readers for any of your stuff, I'd be thrilled to give it a look and give feedback.

So one thing I think maybe I haven't shared before is that for the past year, I've been working towards submitting a packet for the NBC Late Night Writers Workshop. Have been taking a bunch of classes -- a few online courses with The Second City, plus a few local ones at the university and the local improv troupe.

Anyway I finally submitted my packet last night and I felt like it was strong enough to at least get a notice. I know that they rarely pick anyone from their first submission and anticipate applying for the next several years. Felt good though.

thank you Argo! I don't expect to get selected, but I am hoping that it's strong enough that they'll remember my name next year
