Writing in Public: Day 26, Month 03

The last couple of days were unproductive to the point of writing so little it didn’t even bear making a post about.

Today’s been a bit better. This morning I finished with the rough draft of the Penumbra “Hyperspeed” story. Total length of the rough draft is 4,549 words, with 3,840 of that written today in the space of a little over two hours. Proof that I can be productive when I set aside some time to just sit and do nothing but that. Now, like any rough draft of mine it’s ugly and shouldn’t see the light of day. But, the story structure is there as are most of the basic character and plot elements. All that’s left is to rewrite it to greatness. Easier said than done, but revising and rewriting is not the insurmountable task it was even a few months ago.

Spring cleaning outside took up the rest of the afternoon and evening, so unfortunately nothing more was done on the Spindles Fairy Tale entry. Hopefully I’ll get back to that on Monday.
