“He closed his eyes and crossed his heart as it was pulled in different directions”

I’ve taken a liking to having a candle lit when working. This one is blood orange+citrus (but isn’t blood orange a citrus?). I also went straight to the keyboard again as my goal line approaches. I got about 4 pages typed in today, which is about 8 #handwritten

“He turned back to the desk and tossed [the file] down before rubbing his eyes like a pestle to mint leaves and sighing”

The plot thickens

“Spit’s was a grubby, squalid place on the edge of East Unck. Some may even call it sleazy”

I made up a place and called it Spit’s. Straight to the keyboard today, in an effort to put out more while I have the chance. Good thing, too, because there would have been a lot of crossouts had I been on paper. Back to it

Note to self: be more expressive with this

That’s the plan. Tomorrow is April 4th! The heat is on! Time to climb that goddamn mountain

What’s that saying? When one book closes, another one opens? Pulling a lot together tonight in outlining. Feels good – yesterday I found more issues than solutions

I’ve been working but not updating the last few days so I’m gonna have a few today and tomorrow.

Yesterday was a lot of logistics and researching. I’m learning the bounds and necessities for my characters and it’s been enjoyable.

“Look: taking a step back doesn’t mean taking a step away”

Transcribed about 9,000 words tonight. Back to writing tomorrow.

“I found a fortune cookie on my desk today. All it said was ‘stop while you’re ahead’”

A line from a character I never expected to count but is really endearing themselves to me. Turns out there’s more to people than you think even when you’re the one creating them. Burning it down tonight…transcribing a bunch after sitting on my ass too much
