I almost didn't do it. It was late, and I was ready for bed. I'd already posted the podcast, and then I remembered that I hadn't written yet. Grrrrrumble. I debated for several minutes, then I finally pulled out my file and started typing. Now I'm at 2,469 words. That's what, 900 more than yesterday. That's a good, productive half hour's work.
I think this story is going to be really long. In the end it'll probably be a Novella. 20,000 may be a low estimate. I need to get to the inciting incident pretty soon if I don't want it to be endless.
I was also thinking that these posts may get tiresome too. I think I might try loading the word counter into the sidebar somehow, and updating it daily there. That way I can post about something else once in a while. But if you notice that it's not going up every day, get on my case, please.
