Welcome to December.

Normal posting rules once again apply. One hundred words a day, come hell or high water, unless I'm busy or I forget or I'm depressed or something. Let's not kid ourselves here.

I'm gonna take a few days off of writing the novel, because it has been a touch whelming. But I'm going to have to jump back into it; fifty thousand words or not, the story isn't over yet. And against all the odds, I like this story.

Seriously, I had no idea where the plot was going most of the month, and I've been paranoid about ripping off Terry Pratchett, and I'm the sort of dude who gets disheartened really easily, but damn it, it's been a madcap adventure and I've had some fun. And my characters haven't. And isn't that what's really important? I took four people who've never done anything really bad in their lives, and put them through the suckiest day thay could possibly imagine. And it's just going to get worse! Bwa-ha-ha-ha! BWA-HA-HA-HA!

I admire your dedication to ruining the lives of your characters Ed. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
