julnawrimo 2010

I’m participating in Julnawrimo. I did last year and thought I’d give it a shot again this year. Toward the same end. Different book. This time I’m working on finishing up the latest round of rewrites on Midnight’s Heir. This is draft five, and I’ve been working on it since at least November. October? I’ve taken my time with it – swept through it once before getting down to the nitty gritty.

Generally my word goal for the year is 150,000. But I set my meter to 140,000 for this because that’s about where the word count should end up. Pretty fat. I’ll have to trim it way, way back. (Midnight weighed in at around 90,000 depending on how you do the count.)


I have written 96,000 of 140,000 words.
I am now 68.57% done!

no frills wordmeter

eta: not sure how or why the counter posted like that. sheesh!

Appalachian gothic fiction writer - my works reflect a love of literature flavored by the darkness and magic residing in these ancient mountains. In my spare time, I'm a Simmer, I tumbl, I journal, but I always have a very strange sense of humor. I have lived away from the mountains and lived deep in the mountains. I currently live in Central Kentucky with my lifepartner and his cat. The mountains, their culture, their superstitions, their particular magics, will always be in my blood.
