I’m afraid I’m abandoning my usual setup for these updates this last week of the Write-a-Thon, partially because I have to go to bed sometime, and partially because I have considerably less to update this week. My goal was to finish at least two mostly workable short story drafts over six weeks and, hey, I actually already accomplished that! Go me. So much patting on the back today.
I considered starting a third story during Week 6, but I didn’t have as much time to spend on it as I would’ve liked and decided it was a better idea to go back to the first story I finished (previously known as Operation Hail Mary, now to be known under its new codename Venus) and working on edits, particularly in regards to format. Half of the story is in iPhone conversations (in my head, it’s specifically an iPhone–apparently, I have a dreadful Apple bias, so sorry) and I’ve been playing with how I want those sections to look on the page. And while that’s pretty important to me, I have to admit it’s not exactly riveting material for a blog.
But, sadly, that’s pretty much all I’ve got for you today. Venus is out now to a few people who can hopefully tell me how to make it better, as is Codename: Army of Janes. Once I finish with final edits, they’ll be off to the markets . . . and the long, slow, and anxiety-inducing process of waiting will begin.
Thanks to everyone who donated and/or listened to me babble about writing here. More than likely, I’ll see you next year for the 2017 Clarion West Write-a-Thon, same Bat Time, same Bat Channel.
Oh, and your final Random Line of the Week:
I don’t know what a clown would do with a planet, but nothing good could possibly come from it.
