Flawless Victory today.
I completed 648 words toward my scifi thriller, and 2885 words toward a short story. Total: 3533 words. Sweet!
The short story is entitled In Your Sleep. I wrote it for the second volume of the Machine Of Death anthology. The first volume made a big splash last fall when it went to #1 on the Amazon list. I’d heard of it before, but hadn’t realized they were doing another volume until today, when I heard about it while listening to the Sword and Laser podcast. I immediately went over to their website and was intrigued by the concept. Then, after a couple hours thinking about it at work, I hit upon a concept that I thought was money.
Tonight, after I got home, I did some writing toward the scifi thriller, but I got bogged down. So I said “Screw it” and switched to the MOD story. I cranked it out in a few hours, then proofread it and sent it off to the submissions people.
I guess we’ll see what they think.
But, whether accepted or not, I made my word count for today, so I’m on the way toward meeting my goal of 30,000 words by the 15th. Sweet!
