That’s pretty much all I need to say right there, isn’t it? Despite procrastination and a busier-than-expected weekend, I brought the second draft to a close at 37282 words tonight. One of three goals for this ROW80 round is now complete! And with a whole month and a half to spare.
I do need a break from it, though; I realised I was becoming frustrated with the story and the characters towards the end. I’ve started working on Friend of the Enemy [working title], and you can read a bit more about that, including a little background piece in the form of an in-universe text book, on my Short Story Saturday post. My WIPpet Wednesday posts will probably be from this one for a little while now. And I know, I know, I still need to get on to finishing the outline for Operation: Sugarplum.
Anywho, that’s really about it for this week. Have some mirthful music to start or end your week, depending on when you’re reading and what time of the week you consider Sunday to be. I was watching Legally Blonde while typing this up, so here is one of my favourite numbers from the stage musical based on the movie. Elle’s pretty awesome, but the stylist, Paulette, is my favourite character. The dialogue at the end of the song is pretty boring, but make sure you skip along a bit to the reprise.
And since I have nothing to say that can really top that, I bid you goodnight!
