Heaven on earth with an onion slice

Here’s today's progress on my comic/sci-fi young adult project where a girl becomes a ninja and fights aliens with much ass-kicking and many LOLs but not a whole lot of kissing (or any kissing, to be frank) plus BONUS Bruce Lee’s ghost, a vintage Thunderbird, zenlightenment on the fly, and fat stacks of Cool Ranch Doritos.

    Project: Ninja Planet
    Deadline: Sooner rather than later
    New words written: 1369 (meh)
    Present total word count: 47,462 words

    Things accomplished in fiction: The aliens are speaking with English accents. Blame the BBC.

    Things accomplished in real life: Daily jaunt around the neighborhood with the dog; morning yoga and ow I am sore; sold Spanish rights on Clementine, wee! (or rather my agent did, but you know what I mean); solved the mystery of the exploded bird; waited patiently for news that never came; kept inbox down to zero; made tentative plans for a writer date tonight with Mary, so that's my excuse for the low word count #BlameMary.

    Other: I've resolved to write something every single day if humanly possible. Even if it's only a few hundred words, regardless of whatever else is going on. I wish I'd started at New Year's, but oh well - there's no time like the present ... or no time like four days ago, as the case may be.

    Number of fiction words so far this year: 8,417
