Progress report

70 Days of Sweat, Day Fifty-Six: 1,000 words.

Total: 45,100 words.

Current story ("Liar, Cheat"): 4,000 words. And this story has a congenital defect, so I'm putting it into cryogenic storage until such time as my skills develop to the point of being able to extract the good bits and graft them onto a viable organism.

In other news: The Bone Key is one of the best books I've read this year. I'm only a few stories in, but it would take a screw-up along the lines of the book actually setting itself on fire to make me dislike it at this point. It contains exactly the kind of writing I consider to be AWESOME. The best characteristics of Lovecraft but with all the wrongness of Lovecraft totally fixed, plus more excellence piled upon it. I beam admiration at Sarah Monette.

Fitness report:

Oh, dear, do I ever feel your pain on this count. I would rather not admit to how much fiction I've got on ice...

On the other hand, the most recent story I'd submitted to writers' group (which is now submitted to a publisher), contains parts of two stories that I never really figured out how to write, until I realized that with a bit of nudging, I could actually make them both part of the same tale.
