Checkin' in on 30K

Current Word Count: Endways of the Gods

Listening to: Sleater Kinney - Dig Me Out

Greetings, Fearless Readers! I've reached the 30K mark, and surprise, surprise! I'm right where I want to be! There are three "acts" to this book: The Gathering of all the Favored (note the capital, it's important!), The Exodus, and The Quest. The Quest will have the lion's share of the glory, of course, but I'm right where I wanted to be at this part.

I'm getting a little OCD with the record keeping. It's nice seeing all those pink boxes that signify a writing day add up on the calendar page! I'm trying to keep it to only one day off a week! I've discovered: the more I goof off, the more I goof off. The more I write, the more I write! Daily goals and consistency is the way to go for me.

And I had a realization on Tuesday. In exactly one month, I will be 39. This will be my last birthday. I refuse to turn 40 - I've decided I'll be $39.95 plus shipping and handling for the rest of my life!


  1. Congrats on the 30k, Sammich!

    A 39 year old sammich, eh? Still nom. ;-)


  2. Must be about time you start sending stuff out into the big wide world, huh? ;)

  3. I love it...
    the more I goof off, the more I goof off. The more I write, the more I write!

    That is so true!!!

  4. Thank you Adam! :) - and yes, it is time I start sending things out into the world. I hope I make sense to the world...

    HMC - ain't it tho? sigh..


  5. It's so easy to goof off. BIC=Butt In Chair is my new mantra. :-D I loved that last paragraph. $39.95, too funny. :-D You're still young! :-D
