Quick update because time is short. I suppose that's part of it being summer. Plus, I let myself get distracted too easily! Anyway, my word count for last week was 3371 which puts me at the 50K mark-- my original goal. I also spent a little time yesterday plotting out the last few chapters, so hopefully, I'll be done in another 5K words or so-- ideally within the next two weeks. I'm past ready to be done with this one so I can start my rewrites on Headphones.
I might have gotten more written yesterday, but I spent my morning on a 1000 word blog post. If you're interested, you can find it [here] at Bratwurst Times, called Silence Isn't Golden. I guess they're right when they say writers gotta write!
Headphones was an experiment, a story written in "snapshots", a serial, a comic in word form-- call it what you will. It ran for one year plus one day-- January 1st of 2015 to January 1st of 2016. It was the story of a group of friends who took in a damaged girl and helped her find herself. But on the way, she helped them fill the holes in their own lives. I've pulled it now with the hopes of rewriting it into a book. Each day was matched with a music video and each month's mixes are still here. So if you've stumbled in, enjoy the music, and hopefully I'll be able to post updates occasionally!
