Heading into the homestretch

Quality night tonight. I’m thinking I might try to finish Act 1 before I leave vacation. 3 more nights to work on it. I am going to start rough drafting out the next act after I’m finished, although I might post a pdf of the rough draft for all the world to see. Have to decide.

Laundromat and bluetooth blues

Getting ever closer to the end of Act 1, and then I have to figure out what I’m going to do next: edit Act 1, or rewrite act 2. I think I’m going to head into Act 2, because I might have to do more rewrites in Act 1, depending on how it goes (although I feel that I won’t have to change much; I feel that it’s rough but still good stuff.)

Oh, and no one bothered me while I was doing laundry. But I got distracted when my bluetooth headphones started giving me problems, so I could have gotten more writing done if I had just ignored the headphones.

To curse or not to curse, that is the question

For me, cussing is a natural thing, but sometimes I’m not sure if I should write like that, especially in my novel. Since I seriously doubt I’ll ever try traditional publishing, I guess I shouldn’t care. Huh, never mind…

And a chase scene isn’t going to happen when I thought it was. Instead, Kyle gets his head shrunk by the Devil and Phil.

And this is despite the fact I spent the entire night beating my head against Linux. Writing and Masochism, a match made in Hell.

I wrote something, but started writing too late to do much good.

Yeah, yeah, I wanted to be further than this two weeks ago. I will get over it.

Ugh…

Stuck. I don’t think I’ve written a thing in a week. I have yet to surrender!

(snoring at the keyboard)

1500 words in the next two nights. I can do this. I’m just hoping that I get sleep today. If I can sleep straight through the next 8-12 hours, I’ll be golden when I hit the keyboard tonight.
