writing new amsterdam

words are very unnecessary. they can only do harm.

I got a little over 4,000 words on the chapbook story today, which I will probably be calling "Twilight," because I can't come up with a better story. I was aiming for 5K with it, and since it was at something just under 3K before today's writing and is now a little over 7K, you can guess that I'm probably not going to hit that target.

It grew a bunch of subplots while I wasn't looking, which is mostly the fault of stillsostrange and tanaise. And frankly, it's kind of self-indulgent, but if you can't self-fanfic for the chapbook story for a limited edition of a novella in an established world, where the heck can you self-fanfic?

I'm having fun, anyway. And it's nearly writing itself.

I think I have like three more scenes to go. If I pull an all-nighter after I pick up the farm share and have dinner with my Mom, I might even finish it tonight, which would be exciting. Because I would like to be done.

I'm really enjoying having a good writing day. Those don't happen as often as they used to.

Maybe I need to be self-indulgent more often.

Unfortunately, very few people are actually willing to pay to watch somebody masturbate for 400 pages.

I can get away with it on this project because the only people reading it will be hardcore fans, who will appreciate the fanficcy nature of what I'm writing.

I can't count on more than a hundred or so of those in my readership, however....
Yay for having fun with your writing! I'm looking forward to reading it.
Woohoo! Can't.wait. I've already pre-ordered.
