I've written 39,973 total words so far, which puts me at just short of halfway of my final "goal" of 80,000. Of course, as I have said before, the goal is 30,000 on Familiar (1,000 words/day) or finishing it, and it's beginning to wrap up.
Bleh. I'm too tired to be coherent. I finished this over three hours ago, then watched the last disk of KareKano and then genedefect and I worked on wedding planning.
Vegas has never looked so appealing.
Picked up a few more anime things today, like the first and fourth disk of Kyou Kara Maou!, which I was sucked into by the attractive looking limited edition case. It is, unfortunately, not as good as it looks. Oh well. Er. Also picked up the second disk of Fafner, and the 'box set' for Avenger, and the Ghost in the Shell Official Log V.1 LE.
Anime queued up to watch: Wolf's Rain, Gunslinger Girl, Stellvia (in one more bloody month the last disk will be out).
Collecting: Fafner, Gankutsuou, Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex 2nd Gig, Genshiken, Kyou Kara Maou.
No SO3 for me today, but I did manage almost 3,500 words.
It's sort of depressing that my word count is only going up 2/3 of the rate it 'should' because I'm writing on two things at once. It's my competitive nature, I suppose.
MiaC... probably needs some serious chopping. I wonder if people will find the first 27,000 words boring. Time for a change of venue, anyways. I'm doing final exposition of the last things to happen, then a conversation scene, the characters split up, and the protagonist needs to handle a whole new set of issues, while trying to discover what exactly is going on.
I hope that this is not an idiot plot. I do have worries about balancing that sort of thing, because the writer knows what's going on - they just have to make a vague guess as to whether the characters would be able to figure it out, and it happens to be convenient to assume they won't.
