Re: How much did you write today?
guess who just finished their first draft!?!

*does the happy dance*

Congratulations! How many words is it? What is the story about? Now I'm curious too.  :D *joins in in the happy dance as well*

the first draft was just shy of 60k.  but, i'm a severe under-writer, so i suspect it's going to net out at about 90k.  for example, i've already added a thousand words -- and i'm only halfway through editing the first chapter.

as to what it is . . . um . . . gothic-sardonic-ridiculously-escalating-character-driven-grimdark-lite-thriller-with-a-mindblowing-twist-ending?

so, similar in tone to this demon-x story, but written in third-person-close, and in a more sanderson-magic-heavy version of a faction-laden-asoiaf-like setting.

for example, here's a sample of "unedited rough draft" stuff in one of the later fight scenes:
Refocusing, [ONE OF THE 'HEROES'] grunted and brought his fist down on top of the [BADGUY], his arm smashing down through [THAT SAME BADGUY] with bare resistance, and thundered into the stone floor below.  Dividing the man like a crushing portcullis, and nearly carving him in half.

[OUR 'HERO'] pulled his hand from where he'd buried it in the floor.  [THAT POOR BADGUY]'s gore, smeared along the hallway rug, pooled in the indented trough made by [OUR 'HERO']’s forearm.


that's about right.

Re: The King's Paws (with one holding a bottle of Peri Peri sauce.) *whew*

just popping in really quick to say "i still love you guys!"

work is absolutely CRUSHING me right now, and i'm working long days, weekends, all that, for the last month or so.  throw in us selling the house and moving at the same time and i am WAY under water.

luckily, in theory, all this clears up after september.

i'll be back more then.  promise.

Re: The King's Paws (with one holding a bottle of Peri Peri sauce.) hi everyone!  long time no talk!

just checking in!

i've got about two weeks left of this ridiculous stanford machine learning course, then i should be back to posting more.  i haven't read nor written a single word of fiction in months and the fomo anxiety is killing me!  it's making me sleep so awful, you guys don't even know.


i mean, this has been my life lately:

that's enough to make ANYONE anxious.

Re: [Dec 2017] - Alien/Eldritch Artifact - Discussion Thread
5 stories so far...
Is this going to be like previous months, and we get a bunch of them on the last day(s)?
I'm going to be nice and let you still write and submit on New Year's Day ;D

Some obvious misses from past months have been our regulars @Lanko and @Rukaio_Alter. And @m3mnoch, stop building work for a while and do some writing work 8)
