Demure or something
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: 2402 (good)
    Present total word count: 22,495



    Things accomplished in fiction: A little more back-fill and juggling; this one opens from several POVs in three different places ... trying to streamline without cheating. But now I'm moving forward again - to an awkward supper where the hostess is in hiding, and might be going mad.

    Next up: The inspector milks the hostess for information - about the axe murders, yes. There's got to be a concrete link to the strange church out at Chapelwood, and he's determined to sniff it out.

    Things accomplished in real life: Neighborhood jaunt with dog in the snow; cooked a hell of a lunch; printed and sent off a reprint contract; emptied my inbox; not much else - but the day is young.

    Other: I'm stopping a little early, because I have several loads of laundry and a few other household-maintenance-type things to do this afternoon. Such is life. I got a good wordcount in, so I'm at peace with it.

    Snowdog other:



    Number of fiction words so far this year: 55,906

SNOW DOG!

In Chapelwood, where, geographically speaking, is Lizzie? New England?

She starts out in New England, but ends up in Birmingham :)
