End of first week: June 28
So far so good, as the first week’s story was completed, critiqued, and into rewrites by the time I broke for a barbecue and zombies. The second week’s story is going to be a bit of a challenge, as there is a big ole’ holiday at the end of the week, plus, the story itself is a bit more complex. It’s harder SF and a more involved plot. Also, the first week’s story had a lot of the scaffolding built already, since I had been trying for a while to turn the basic idea into a novel. Finally, I decided the reason that it wouldn’t advance past 20,000 words was because it wasn’t meant to, and started trying to make it into a <10,000 work story instead. I think I was right.
