Sept the Twenty-Sixth
According to Scrivener, I’m just shy of the 2,000th word of The Face of Fear. Holy shit this is fun!!! I fucking love this, Journal, I can’t believe I let so much of my life go by without letting myself write down what happens in The Hillside Commons. It’s… it’s fuckin’ inane to me!!!
So yeah, I think it’s safe to say I had a good four hours today, Journal. At first four hours seemed like a lot of time to spend writing (well, typing), but that’s how long Mister Stephen King works on his books every day so… yeah. I got goals, Journal, and that ‘man is a ‘man who also had (probably still has, who am I to say?) goals, goals that he reached. Role model as fuck. My only question is: is 2,000 words a lot for four hours? Or is that, like, hardly anything at all? I’m tempted to do the math to figure out my words per minute, but at the same time I feel like that’ll only disappoint me. Numbers often do; can’t stand lookin’ at numbers.
Anyway, I think it’s safe to say I’m all written out for the day. I’m going to… I don’t know. Take a walk in the woods, maybe? Or just up the street a little ways, I don’t want to stress my feet out too much. The cuts are pretty much sealed (I was lookin’ at ‘em, pretty gruesome) but that doesn’t mean they can’t reopen.
Also, before I go, I think I’m going to start doing a new kind of Journal entry, to keep track of my progress on The Face of Fear. A writer’s log of sorts. I’ll keep them separate from the normal entries, and I’m probably going to still be doing the normal entries too, don’t worry. But yeah, Journal. The first two subchapters of the pro–… the Prelude are drafted. Going to do number 3 (and 4, if there is a 4) tomorrow, and I’m probably going to start Chapter 1 too! Or maybe I’ll just finish the Prelude when I get home, idek. Part of me feels iffy about leaving off in the middle of a chapter like that (even though it’s the prologue chapter), but we’ll see.
… … …
Say thankya, Journal. ‘Preciate ya. Long days and pleasant nights~
