"The Latest Happenings" or "Hello, I'm Still Here"

I just hit 16,850 words on the novel I started on the 13th. That's 1/3rd of the way to the minimum word count of 50k. I think I like what I've been writing, but it's been like pulling teeth. I'm writing much slower than my usual 750 words per hour, and I've been doing a lot of thinking away from the keyboard as well. If I have a few good days, I'll hit the 25k halfway point early next week, and then I'll feel less anxious. Even though it logically shouldn't matter that much, it feels much easier to me to write on the downhill side of a book.

Now I'm going to go and write a few movie reviews for StreamingHorror.net. After missing a week, I'm going to try to get at least a MWF posting schedule going. I'm also working on revising last year's 50 reviews for Streaming Horror: The Complete 2011 Reviews. So far, I'm really enjoying reading over them.

Have you read my interview over at PennyDreadnought.com yet? Do so if you haven't. It's not your standard interview, as one would suspect once one learns that the interviewer is a man with no flesh upon his very face!


  1. Pulling your teeth on your own is really not advisable.

    1. You know who else didn't always do what was advisable? Jesus.

      Think about it.
