Oct the First
Two things before I get back to Noises:
- I don’t even know how long ago, a couple weeks? A month maybe? Regardless, at one point before I got down to working on the novel I was like, “I’m not stressing, if I don’t start before Oct the First then I’ll definitely start then.” Well, it’s Oct the First today and I’m well over 10,000 words into this bad boy. I say that to say this: fuckin’ killin’ ‘em.
- I just finished typing the third subchapter of chapter Monday and it was, literally, 1 word shy of being exactly as long as the first subchapter of chapter Monday. Weird, especially considering how I made such a big deal out of that the other day, making fun of it and such. Anyway, I added like 20ish words (as if that even makes a difference) and now I’m go’n’a get back to it because me journaling before I’m done novelwriting only serves as procrastination and that’s lame as fuck.
- Bonus third thing: I might not even do another normal journal entry after I finish writing today’s fiction. It’s not that I don’t love you, Journal, but I need to stay focused and keep on track! I only have so many words I can spill a day – in theory, at least… kind’a makes me want to sit in my chair and write for sixteen (or better yet, 19) hours just to see how much I get done, but at the same time fuck that shit because sitting in this chair makes my lower back scream at me – so I need to make sure as many of those words are The Face of Fear words as possible!
Wow this got long. It’s not even that long – not compared to my novel, ho’ho hey’hey – but still, it’s too long. It’s probably at least 300 words, and those 300 words could have detailed what Albey did after getting back from b… I’ve said too much. If I say anymore I’ll have to burn you, so I’m’a stop myself before I write something you’ll regret.
That’s right, I’m’a save you from a merciless defeat, and that is worth it to me. Word to Joey Cool.

Say thankya, Journal. ‘Preciate ya. Long days and pleasant nights~
