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: 3801 (YES)
    Present total word count: 51,263 words

    Things accomplished in fiction: Now it is time for the earth champion to fight the alien champion. The alien champion is a cross between a lizard and a bear and its name is Bob.

    Things accomplished in real life: Daily jaunt around the neighborhood with the dog; failed to meet the daily yoga quota, because I am in terrible pain, thank you, yoga; watched Greyson defend the back yard from a hawk (with lots of barking, no bloody battles, thank God); chattered via email with a number of useful folks including my agent; submitted an entry to the Con or Bust fundraising auction; maintained the Inbox Zero stasis.

    Other: One more big scene to write, and then the denouement. Holy crap - I might actually be able to wrap up a draft of this tomorrow or the next day. And yes, I overshot the goal. Maybe the final draft will be ... 55k?

    Number of fiction words so far this year: 12,218
