Nice! Go story go!Today I worked on the connective tissue, filled out some of the overly sparse sections, and moved the story just a tiny bit closer to the end. Net increase of about 500 words, with word count sitting at almost 3200. There’s one more scene I need to finish (the final one) before I have a full draft. Then I can do a complete beginning-to-end run through before I submit it. I already know where I’m sending it first.
Right now I’m not sure how to count the stories I originally started last year for W1S1 purposes. I guess it depends on how far along the story was when I left off last year. I might just keep track of those ones separately.
Same — anything at whatever stage of not-done counts until it is done. For me it’s largely because if I want to work on something and don’t count it, I’ll be inclined to decide it’s the goal that doesn’t count instead. Which doesn’t particularly help matters.I will be counting stories started last year (or, uh, five years ago),
Two points to Tamlyn!That said, finished my Sisyphus draft. So am officially on:
Drafted stories: 1/12.
Edited stories: 0/12.
Also got off my arse and resubbed a story that had been sitting forlornly since its last rejection. Didn't have much success finding markets for other sitters.
I had a day of what-are-words, but just now a surprise 100 words on the baby-niece story. Sneaky stakes and conflict, so that’s fun. Sisyphus story is still sitting, and I haven’t attempted anything yet as far as subbing. Too many spoon-drains lately, but hopefully soon.
