i didn’t do my camp nanowrimo today because i couldn’t think of any way to turn chrysalism into a story (but maybe i’ll think of something when it’s raining every day this week).
but i put at least 5k into the TSWFFTS rewrite
822 / 20,000 words
The plan is just to write a short story/flash fiction every day, so as soon as I finish, I can stop and work on other things. Unless I change my mind, I’m going to base each story off one of the made up words from Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows.
Today’s word was daguerreologue, but I really didn’t even touch the definition.
I was thinking maybe I won’t participate this year so I can work on TSWFFTS (just getting it all together so I can get the free proofs I won in November), but APPARENTLY there’s flexible goals this time so maybe I’ll just do something small in April and then something bigger in July.
Scrivener and the NaNo website aren’t exactly lining up. Muh. They’re both over 50k, so. Scrivener says 50,067, so that’s what I’m going with. (NaNo is higher)
;-; the last bit i wrote is my babies getting married. feels everywhere.
i guess i’m done talking about this now
I’m going to go exercise (bleh) and I might not be back before midnight so I’m posting it now.
I’ve realized that the alternate ending isn’t completely useless— having it, I realize exactly how much one event affected the whole ~canon~ story line.
because of this one event.
…Though, I can think of one person whose life is potentially ruined by the alternate ending.
But her life is sort of ruined in canon too, just… less so, I guess.
She can’t win.
Actually the regular ending is a lot sadder the more you think about it. Hm.
slowed down a little bit, but I’m ahead and even though I’m “slow”, I’m still getting more than the minimum. But I was getting close to 2k a day before.
I’m actually running out of plot in my now 23k alternate ending.
The alternate ending is forcing me to spend a surprising amount of time researching Princeton. Neat.
omg my alternate ending is officially more than 50% of what I’ve written this month.
