Here we go, T-Minus 10 days and counting!!!

The Total word count is unofficial. I got rid of 417 words this morning, took a printout to work, and was feeling pretty discouraged close to the end of the day. On the way home, I rearranged some things in my head, tweaked a little of what happened when, and combined a little of this and a little of that. When I got home, I closed the door to the writing room and gutted the shit out of the story.

That’s why I’m doing this. ¬†Earlier today, I was convinced that I’d never be able to pull it off. That I was going to fall on my face out there come April 1st, right in front of people I admire.

Then I did something about it.

There’s going to be a bit of give and take while I smooth out the edges but, I’m feeling better about it now than I was, even 5 hours ago.
