Ah workouts and writing...

Yesterday: Smith machine squats.  Smith machine lunges.  Leg extensions. And another exercise I forgot the name of.  Sore muscles...but it hurts sooo good. 

Today will be cardio only, I suspect.


The fic that will not die keeps growing....Sitting at about 4,000 words, which for me is huge....Maybe I'll start posting it as chapters...LOL.

And now, off to the gym!

4000 words? My chapter outlines have more than 4000 words. ~_^

Some of us write novellas for chapters, some drabbles, I guess.


For me, that's huge...I'm a flash fic person, mostly... most of what I write runs in between 400-800 words...Just call me Ms. Vignette....LOL. Ive written over 301,000 words of Inu fic, but in delicate little bites. This story's going to end up somewhere between 5000 and 7000 words and for a person who writes in my mode, that's a lot...

Outlines? (runs and hides at the word....)

I can't function without an outline. I'd never be able to keep it all straight. My novel, I'm guessing, will be between 100,000 and 120,000 words. My short novel was almost 25000.

I do so love to ramble. I'd probably be more productive if I could keep it short like you do.

After the End did up being over 22,000 words, so I am capable of longer, but yeah, one thing about being succinct is that it gets hard to get long...

Oh, I occasionally scribble notes about what I'm going to write, but I have always sort of avoided detailed outlining...I do better journaling about what I want to write and I keep the key outline only in my head. It's a rather perverse habit, but I've been doing it all my life...wrote more than one college term paper first, and pulled the outline I had to hand in off of it. LOL!

I am glad that your fic is coming along. I can hardly wait to read it.
