Another 5K week on Petra Released. Magic Meter says,
Completed the first act, and am now embarked on a second act that’s pretty much a complete mystery. I know where I want everyone to end up, but I have no idea how I’m going to get them there. I’m sure I sound like a broken record by now, but this really is happening every week, and it’s scary. Every day I go to the keyboard fearing that I will face a blank screen for two hours. Every day I manage to bang out just a little bit more, but in truth, it feels like I’m just delaying the inevitable, that sooner or later, my luck–or inspiration, or whatever it’s been so far–will run out.
Yet I press on. Like I have a choice. (No whammies! No whammies!)
(Yikes. Did I really just type that? I must be more stressed out than I thought.)
Maybe if I get a minute, I’ll ask my muse. I seem to recall having a similar conversation with her during the drafting of Petra. Here’s hoping she’s as forthcoming this time around.
Since I’ve hit the 40K mark, I’m officially working on a novel now, according to SFWA rules. So that’s something.
No updates for Write Club.
Anyway, onward. (No whammies!)
