1400 words today

I turned my attention back to the group story that still needs a name. Lizzie and the hat took care of a bunch of zombies, but the main focus was on Clovis and Gina.

They had to clear out a building where the virus is being loaded into vaccines. I probably need to go back through and ramp up the creepiness factor, but I like how it came out.

My favorite part was when they all got back together. The hat was absolutely manic, and laughing himself silly. I liked the part where he said, “If I had a bladder, I’d wet my pants.”

My heroes were forced to torch the building holding the virus, leaving one contaminated person inside. Since he’d never survive the virus, it was a bit easier for them.

I also revealed the big bad for the first time. This is the paranormal entity that’s behind all these shenanigans. She got away this time.

Still 1400 words isn’t too bad.

I also spent a big part of my morning monitoring that Facebook lounge post about Lisa Burton. It cut into my writing time, but all in all it was a good day. A good weekend for that matter.

Tomorrow, I have to go back to the job that actually pays me. I think I’ll call it a weekend and goof off this afternoon.

  2. You inspired me yesterday. I wasn’t going to do any writing at all, but when I read about your productive weekend, I had some description ideas for a couple of scenes in my whip. I covered the five senses and added a bit of dialogue to the last scene in Chapter one of my fantasy. I believe I wrote about 400 words yesterday. Thanks for sharing.

  10. I love the Hat. Sounds like you had fun with your scenes. Productive days, no matter what the end word count, are always a plus. At this point, I’d do cartwheels for 1400.
