Really wanted an afternoon wrap up today, so a 10pm finish isn’t ideal. The fact it’s not the finish and I haven’t started, somewhat less so. But right now, the inside of my house is close to the temperature outside, and I need to get the gas line refitted soon to undo that. As a result, I’m spending a lot of my days in bed, and working from the laptop. Today I managed to reverse that and spent most of the day on my PC, but hey, I have video games I want to play and this is the first chance I’m getting.
When I do write though, TSS is going to hit 80,000 words tonight. I was rereading my blog posts from late September and early October the other day, and past me had no inkling I’d pull that off. I had the 31st deadline for the draft, but on the blog and more so my journal, I was hedging that bet hard. Now, even if I manage to not write today or the remaining days, I have near enough a complete manuscript. You could even copy and paste the old ending onto this new one and call it done. I mean, I won’t, but you could.
On January 1st, I’m switching right into WHT. No break or pause, it’ll be a clean transition between the two projects. It’s quite exciting to think about. This has been a hell of a year. I can’t wait to grow even more in years to come.
