The day concluded with a staggering 2755 in word count. Was most pleased with myself. I spent most of the word count writing the first battle between the protagonist and the antagonists – there has been little forays up until this point but more of the taunting nature than an actual battle. Much to my dismay, the main character turned into a basket-case at one point and she’s having unrequited love issues.
Okay, I knew she would have love issues but I did not expect her to turn into a basket-case or simpering moron while lamenting. Certainly having issues with the portion about her unrequited love, not just for how she turned out. It is missing a spark for me. Some concepts that should be there, are not so I am quite certain that the section of verse will get re-written at a later date. Current word count is 19800. I should have tried for that last 200 but I was tired and just wanted to go home. Where I ended up watching a movie until I decided it was time for sleep.
Day 20’s plans have changed drastically over the past few days thanks in part to a malfunctioning water heater. Going on (at least) Day 4 of no hot water in my house but in an hour and a half, water heater installation should commence. Originally, the was a SCA event to attend – not going to happen now. With new morning plans, I was considering the Saturday afternoon write-in in Longmont but things are not looking so promising there either as there has already been some morning setbacks with the water heater – I tried to drain it. No dice as I need to undo the plumbing fixtures at the top first. Of course all the needed tools are with the family members coming over later to install the new water heater. So now that adds more time to the whole uninstall/install process once they arrive. Once the water heater fun and games is done with, I have some errands to write, writing to do (of course) and other household tasks to accomplish now that there is hot water available to complete them.
I would really like it to be tomorrow – Day 21 – already which will hopefully feature Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 1.
Anubis really needs to stop waking me up after 4-5 hours of sleep. About to use the keyboard as a pillow and take a nap.
