On top of the chain and safe from the rain

Demure or something
I spent the day writing about 3000 words across two different projects: One is the beginning of "Schrodinger's Project" from a month or two ago, which I'm finally coming back around to; the other is a continuation on my comic/sci-fi young adult project where a girl becomes a ninja and fights aliens, plus BONUS Bruce Lee’s ghost, a vintage Thunderbird, zenlightenment on the fly, and fat stacks of Cool Ranch Doritos.

That is to say, I got back to work on Ninja Planet.

Schrodinger's Project is technically a bit more pressing, but right now I'm really starting to itch for a full draft of Ninja Planet - because this thing keeps getting back-burnered in favor of deadline-driven pieces, and that's a damn shame.

For this one little interlude I have a tiny squeak of breathing room. So by golly, I'm going to take advantage of it. And since I can't talk about Schrodinger ...

    Project: Ninja Planet
    Deadline: Halloween [self-imposed]
    New words written: Not sure. About 2k.
    Present total word count: 37,177 words





    Things accomplished in fiction: Successfully cooperated with difficult cousin, in order to break into a cemetery.

    Things accomplished in real life: Daily jog/walk with dog who DEMANDED his jaunt-around-the-neighborhood this morning despite the freezing rain, bless his fuzzy little heart and massive fluffy mountain-dog coat of hair; garden clean-up, when it was dry enough to do so; some minor housework; desperately struggled to figure out how to begin the secret project.

    Other: Still not 100% happy with the secret project's opener. I'm not sure I have the voice right, but I'll keep plowing forward, and either it'll start to gel, or I'll figure out what I'm doing wrong. Sometimes you've got to quit noodling, and just dive right in and fuck right up.

    Bride of Other: I don't actually have the faintest idea how long Ninja Planet will be. 60k is a total guess, pulled right out of my ass. Could be 50, could be 80. I don't know. We'll see.
