Recent photos, mostly creepiness

Day 10

It's day 10 and I'm way behind.  However, since I lowered the bar, I'm not worried in the slightest.

One good thing about not feeling attempting to blaze through 75k as quickly as possible is that I have time to pick and choose my words.  Some of the prose I've written so far is the best I've ever done.

I'm trying something new this time and still struggling to make it work for me.  Since I've found that I hate going back and revising things, I'm editing as I go.  The ratio is still off but I'm way more comfortable with what I've written so far.

The weekend is coming up and I'm planning on playing catch-up to a degree.

On non-writing news, I've taken some photos I'm fairly proud of in recent days.  I'll post some of them later.

Day 2

The first evening of writing went very well.  I knocked out 1700 words, a little more than my goal of 1500, and wrote the first two scenes of Stasis.

I'm going to try a little something different this go-round.  Since I have a history of not going back to revise things, I'll be doing the revision as I go this time.  It will slow down forward progress but the finished product will be more to my liking.

On a related note, I will be fleshing out the second scene a bit before pushing forward.  Fortunately, I'm on the cusp of a four day weekend and thus have a ton of time for writing in the near future.
