I imported my 78K word mess into Scrivener (which I just bought, and love, and hope to marry one day) and managed to get 4K further down the road.

Eh... 53 words.  I'm hoping to get at least 700-1000 before I go to sleep tonight.  But my chair is so comfy... and warm... maybe I should get a stone chair so I won't fall asleep.

6k on Bloodmender last night, we're now up to 84k. Two good scenes written (IMO) and we're moving toward the climax of the trilogy. The end of the first draft is in sight.

My favorite line from last night:

I got 2k added to 6k, in something that i think i could finally work with for a while. I just hope I can focus on this and not let it break down, as my earlier attempts on longer works have.
I will finish one of my stories that are swirling in my head! Maybe. :P

3k last night. If I can hit that a few more days this week and the upcoming weeks in August, plus a Saturday at some point, I think I might be able to finish the first draft of my fantasy WIP!

Blasted through about 2400 words today. And by blasted, I mean polished, which is a completely different word but oh well. So nice to be working on my chapters after a few days of doing nothing.

Now up to over 100k on Bloodmender, based on a good set of scenes last night. I realized today I'm actually only 4-5 big scenes from the end of the book, which is encouraging! At this rate, it'll probably end up at 130k plus by the time I'm done. As I revise the rough draft, I'll probably shave at least 10k off that, and my editor will probably take off another 10k, minimum, so this one will end up right about where Demonkin did.

Then I can actually take a writing break for a few months and catch up on TV, anime, and finishing Uncharted 4.

1,117

None of it prose, sadly. All of it bio stuff for each of my POVs. Got some good random points that make them feel real.

Wrote ~7k this week on my WIP, half of it today, for an average of 1k per day and even got some nice scenes  :D

Now I'm off to watch to the game  ::)

Up to 110k. Three big scenes left to right, then the denouement. I think I could finish this book by next weekend.

I should have used that momentum to keep writing for two more hours.

Holy... one of the worst games I had the displeasure of watching in my entire life  :-X
