More procrastinating: The Million Words.

Collapse )

Because good enough isn't good enough, and there's that million words of shit to consider, and then there's John Gardner's advice to aspiring novelists to always, always keep in mind. "Great. Now go write for ten years."

Or, as I keep chanting under my breath: "Right story. Right desk. Right day. Write better." It's the only decent advice I have to give.

I may as well take it myself.

Progress

851 words that I don't like very much, but they move the plot.

My ISP is freaking out all over the floor. I presume they've tightened their filters to counteract the worm explosions, but the immediate result is that *no* email is getting through.

Sigh.

I'm going to go get a drink. And when I'm done, I'm going to drown the internet idiots who set up this latest series of stupidhead DOS attacks in the bucket.

Anybody else want some?
