Progress Notes

Further Tales of Episode #109
Logged in another 2.5 hours since last time. We are now at:

5,752 / 7,500

Yes, the final count changed.

Why?

Well, I'm roughly 60% into the story. I seriously doubt I'll finish it in the next 300 words.

So we go to the next possible final count: 7,500 words.

Of course, we'll revisit the count the closer we get to that number.

A Lesson From WonderCon

The lesson smacked me three times. Once from Greg Rucka. Twice from Peter Beagle, at two different panels.

The lesson was this: You are a writer. Write. Don't wait for the muse. You write even when the muse isn't there. Even when it feels like, as Stephen King put it, you're "shoveling shit from a sitting position." You put in the time. Because a working writer makes money from the writing. And if they wait for the muse, they will starve and not be able to pay the rent and the bills.

I find it interesting that I can read the same advice in tons of books and articles and it seems to go in one ear and out the other, in a manner of speaking.

But hearing it directly from someone suddenly makes all the difference.

Thank you, Greg and Peter.
