Yesterday, I wrote 1825 words, bringing the total to 40,502.

Today, 2145 words have made it into the file, bringing me up to 42,647.

Yesterday, there was a completely gratuitous fellatio scene. OK, it wasn't completely gratuitous. It also wasn't very explicit. Today, there was no sex at all, but there was sobbing and whining about the past. And laser-armed motor-trikes. And power armor, which is, you know, not what you expect to see in a fantasy story, but this is science fantasy, so, you know, whatever.

This story has gotten weird, but not weird enough to be salvageable in its current form. There are bits that I might plunder in the future. I need to discipline myself better, set boundaries and not run merrily past them. Either that, or just jump off the deepest end of the mental pool like some sort of deranged love-child of William S. Burroughs and Hunter S. Thompson channeling Maldoror while buggering Michael Moorcock.

Hehehe. "Moorcock".

I'd love to read that!

So far, every word I have written this year is all BACK STORY for what I need to be writing but can't get to until I clear it all away. So yeah... NOTHING I have written this year will be likely to be ready by ANYONE BUT ME. Ever. Because... it's all just development of characters. Really fully developing them. WIth loves and fears and likes and dislikes and desires and hopes and dreams and angers. The real story is what I started to write 2 years ago, and it's waiting for me to catch up to it.

So, maybe the deep end is where your story really *starts*.

Yeah. I may go all out once I'm done with this one. Start over, and make a hallucinogenic pansexual adventure through time or some such thing.

I think that you may have shown me some first-season episodes of it, and I did like it quite a lot. I did not see this episode, however, and did not recognize it. I mentioned that many of the cast members had made it on to Childrens Hospital, which you hadn't seen.

That sounds really interesting - love to read it when it's done!

My own NaNoWriMo project is progressing more slowly... I've done around 20,000 words thus far this month, so there's no way I'm going to hit 50,000 by the 30th. But I figure it's still 20,000 more than I'd probably have written otherwise, plus I feel like I've regained some momentum, and hopefully will be able to keep working on it more regularly after November finishes than I was doing before.

Oh, it's crap. If you insist, I'll send it to you, but I promise you that it will be a waste of your time. I'm using it as a beginning to get the million crappy words out (I've already started, but I'm pretty sure that I've got at least a half-million to go). Like I said, one thing I've learned is that you either have to let go completely (which I did not do) or remain within your self-imposed boundaries more stringently (which I also did not do). Going half-assed makes for crap. Which makes this thing crap with mildly porny bits. German crap, if you will.

OK, I have had second thoughts about my analysis. I still maintain that the novel is crap as it stands, but I don't know for sure if there might be something worthwhile lurking in it. If you want, I will send you a PDF of the novel, and you can tell me if (with suitable rewriting to make it, you know, good) you think that it's worth my time to revise and pursue. I warn you, though, if you do that, then I will be asking a bunch of stupid questions and expecting brilliant answers to them! ;)

Think you might feel inclined to have a look at mine once I finally finish the first draft? I'm reasonably sure mine is not crap, but it's going to need a fair bit of polishing before it's ready to start shopping around to agents and publishers, so I'll definitely be looking for beta readers who can give me feedback to help with that. And while I'm trying to write it in such a way that you don't have to be familiar with Celtic mythology to enjoy it, there are definitely some in-jokes that those who are will get and others won't...

Sure, I'd do that. Seems like a fair exchange.
