New Project Update

Meet the new project du jour destined to occupy my evenings:
Black Candy Draft
Projected Total: 80,000
Total Words to Date:9,466
Words Done in Previous 24-hour Period: 609
Deadline: July 23rd

Yep, I’m taking another stab at the problem dubbed “Peter Doesn’t Have a Finished Novel.” This became the most likely candidate because I have a basic outline of what happens (care of the sketchy-novella-length draft I wrote at the start of 2007) and it’s total comfort-zone writing (Noir SF with squicky sex). I may have overburdened this with to many ideas for it to actually work as a novel-length MS, but I figure it’s the best starting point I’ve got to get a feel for writing at that length.
