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: 1972 (2-day total)
Present total word count: 53,208 words
Things accomplished in fiction: BIG CLIMACTIC SCENE. Nothing left to write but the wind-down.
Things accomplished in real life: Daily jaunts around the neighborhood with the dog; afternoon lunch with Mary and Nene yesterday - which ate up pretty much the entire afternoon, actually; took Greyson to the groomer and then picked him up by myself (long story) but he actually did great without company in the backseat, thank God; did dishes; did laundry; went to the post office; kept inbox at zero.
Other: Let the record reflect, I did write yesterday, keeping the streak alive. I just didn't get around to doing it until late at night, and then we were watching this week's episode of Justified and then I sort of just forgot to update. These things happen. But the streak LIVES.
Number of fiction words so far this year: 14,190
