I don’t have the time to make quality blog posts.
It’s sad, but true. And I’d rather make no blog posts than make shitty blog posts. So while I’m up to my buns in school-work-family, I’m going to mostly keep this blog limited to the “8 Sentence Sunday” posts I used to do. Those were neat, right?!
Along with recognizing how little time I have for writing, I decided to stick to a single story until I finish it OR DIE TRYING. I went with The Lightning-Maker’s Daughter because it’s the one on my mind the most often. I have the proto-synopsis posted somewhere around here.
Anyway, with no further ado, my 8 sentences for this week!
The door to the laboratory swung shut, and Mattie eyed the ON lever. Prue could drag her to a ball that was just a dressed-up flesh sale, but she couldn’t keep Mattie from bringing her theory to life.
Mattie grasped the lever with her ungloved hand and pushed up. The lever clicked as it engaged, and Mattie prepared herself for the sounds of the coil coming on.
She waited for ten seconds—ten long seconds in silence and electrical inactivity— before she slammed the ON lever back down to its OFF position. Maybe there had been further sabotage that she hadn’t seen. Maybe being underground interrupted the energy flow she needed.
Maybe her thesis was flawed.
I’d say “winner winner chicken dinner” but I’m eating turkey, so…
1,515 words today. Total? 50,020!!! Woohoo!
And now begins ElMoEdYoCraNo. See ya there!!
1,318 words for a total of 48,505.
That’s less than 1,500 words to go, people!!
P.S. I didn’t write anything today and I will probably succumb to a food coma soon. Tomorrow!
No writing for me today. It’s family time, and also homework time. I have finals starting next week, which means my NaNo vacation is soon ending. Boo!
2,635 words for a total of 47,187. Woohoo!
Hey. You know how I said I was woefully behind?
I wrote 7,509 words. HOLY CRAP, RIGHT?! I was on a roll!
So now I have 44,552 words total. I was thinking of trying to make it to 45,000, but I was too tired to make any sense. So I’ll just get that 500 words later.
This happened today:
Dirt Bag Muse: “Sup. How’s NaNoWriMo?”
Me: “Oh you know, it’s going–Wait, what are you doing here?”
DBM: “I got a new idea.”
Me: “No.” Continue reading
Hey, you remember how on the 21st I didn’t write anything at all?
I did it again.
I have a halfway decent excuse. After 6 months of deployment in some sand-filled shit hole, my husband is home! Hooray! It’s a celebration!
But you don’t have to show Charlie Murphy your titties if you don’t want to.
So anyway, yeah, I spent the day doing family things. Because MY FAMILY IS BACK TOGETHER!!
But uhhhh I’m like 3,000 words behind now. So tomorrow is going to be a crazy write-tastic day.
