First 2k of the Year - Written

I am managing, somehow, not to post my first few hundred words or so. The only reason: it is very early in the morning, I have gotten little sleep the past few days, and I fear sparklepeaches catching all my inanity and sitting there, laughing at me. <-- Is inanity even a word? No, I think I am looking for "inaneness". Regardless, the first blush of what you write is always colored with your hopes and dreams, and upon later reading, makes all the spit dry up in your mouth. I've decided NOT to post anything which would horrify me later. Beside this rambling post.

It was weird stepping into another world. I realized how little world building I did for this, or at least for the world that they will inhabit for the first 1/4 of the book. You see, this world my characters are in is DOOMED! Doomed, I tell you! Everything is going all to hell, the characters barely recognize their own world, why should I? I'm going to concoct horrors on the fly. It should be fun.

Oh, and for those of you (ahem) who have voted for Road Dogs - that might not make the June/July book. I am having all kinds of visions for the Unicorn Hunter story. I've already filled about 8 journal pages of scenes and notes. I have only a few typed pages and very few notes for Road Dogs. Fear not, though. The boys from the wild west are surely on the road as we speak. Doing good deeds and making up for their atrocities. Luv, Sammich.

ETA: total word count for the day increased to 5140


  1. Three cheers for a good start to 2010!

  2. Yay for you, Sammich! Still, I want Road Dogs!


    Write your Unicorn Hunter quick, k? :D

    *'normous New Year hugs*


  3. Wow, I can't be bothered to start until monday. Good going, Bettielee.

  4. Thanks, Lee and Lindsay! and Adam... don't pout! I'm workin' on the plot a little. It's a straight forward action/adventure fantasy and I don't want it to suck, and I don't want my bad guys to be tropes.... I'm workin' on havin' a rogue demon after them. Fear not...:)

  5. Ok, I'll be patient. ;-)

    If you want someone to bounce ideas off, you know where I am. :D


    PS - I LOVE stories that invole long ass journeys. It's as if the world becomes a character of its own. :)
