I cheated a bit (counting this morning as part of last week), but I did manage to reach 12,000 words "last week". I lost a little sleep doing it, too. As for the content... Whoo, physical impossibility ho, and yay for five hundred words of description.
Mmph. I don't know how long this is going to end up being. There's some training to gloss over, a few more characters to introduce, and then we'll hit the primary conflict. Unfortunately, none of these things are really action filled, so I'm wondering whether it's going to be interesting when I'm finished. I guess we'll see.
I bent the guidelines, though. I should have paid more attention to the settei before I started writing. Oh well. It's, uh, mostly right. I hope.
I need more hours in the day, more days in a week, more weeks in a year - I don't have time for all of this. I haven't touched SRW in several days. Instead I played around six hours of WoW yesterday, watched more Battlestar Galactica, and read Left Behind. A couple of my friends from high school were in the area, so genedefect and I went out with them on Saturday too. We saw the Science Fiction Museum, which was ridiculously expensive but interesting, and hopefully a good time was had all around.
I've decided I'm going to put off reading the third book in Left Behind for a week, since I'm unnerved by the effect it's having on my mind. It's having the fannish effect in the sense that Christian-isms are suddenly appearing in my mind, I'm making jokes based on it, etc. I don't entirely feel comfortable with that, so instead I'm going to (hopefully) finish i.d. and maybe pick up something suitably pagan to clear my brain out. While I'm not afraid I'm going to suddenly feel the light of God and go crazy, I'd rather not fangirl over Left Behind. That's a place I don't want to go.
