Generally, I do a post about what I hope to accomplish, but I’ve been disappointed in my output lately, and so I decided to try and write on Wednesday and then blog any success on Thursday. The good news is, there has actually been success. Let’s go to the bullet points:
- I got to page 6 of the rewrite for Issue #2 of Girl Who Loved a Zombie. I had the first 7 pages written out a few days ago when I realized I had an superfluous character, so the rewrite was to cut the character and tighten the story. It worked well until page 6 when I realized the character I was writing is meant to be a parallel. So, it stalled again, but only for the night, I think.
- I wrote about 300 words of a new short story, which is about a spotlight with an identity crisis. I am literally writing it because I was explaining the layout of a town near the one I grew up to a friend and said the phrase, “In defense of the old stoplight,” which cracked up said friend, and he said it would be a great opening line to something, so now it’s a short story about a stoplight with an identity crisis. Thanks, Travis.
- I finished the final arc of Cable & Deadpool (you can see my very short review on Goodreads), which probably won’t mean anything to you if you don’t read comics, but trust me when I tell you it was a strong read all the way through, and I just want to hug everyone in that book.
- Someone bought a copy of I Should Get a Free Dog, which is always lovely. I would like to use this space to remind you all I do have a much newer short story available if you’re interested (not a subtle hint; I blame Deadpool).
And how was your Wednesday?
