Here's today's progress on my witchy art-deco horror novel about Lizzie Borden thirty years after her parents' deaths - now featuring ghosts and non-ghosts alike, anti-Catholic conspiracy nuts, supernatural political shenanigans, the mafia, and a Bonus! space-worshiping murder cult hiding behind the KKK:

    Project: Chapelwood
    Deadline: October 1, 2014
    New words written: 2853 (good)
    Present total word count: 7828

    Things accomplished in fiction: Introduced two of our new heroes, who are beginning to realize they're up against worse than small-city dirty politics.

    Next up: Back to our Boston inspector, who's arrived in Birmingham. His credentials will get him an audience with all the usual official folks - but he's walked into the aftermath of a local election, and who's in charge of what is suddenly unclear.

    Things accomplished in real life: Neighborhood jaunt with dog; lots of email, but achieved inbox zero; started some boring writer business.

    Other: Now I need to sit down and write an emails asking for favors. It never really gets any easier, I tell you.

    Aggravated other: Why the hell do Person of Interest and Justified have to come on at the same damn time every week? I mean really. (Watched Justified, will have to catch up on Person later. I hate catching up on things later.)

    Dubious other: I did Maplecroft on about 1200 words a day...and it really felt good, like I was taking my time and the pace was right. This one's moving faster, and I hope I'm not rushing anything.

    Number of fiction words so far this year: 41,239

Justified is repeated later the same night on Fx (and possibly right before the new episode the following week). I watch one and DVR the other.
