Weekend Update #2
Over the MLK day weekend I wrote nearly 11,000 words, most of it on Sunday and Monday. I could do more today, but I’m at one of those points where I’ve fucked up my outline. Now is probably a good time to wait a few days to recalculate things and then go at it some other time. Maybe not next weekend since I have to go to the dentist and get a tooth dealt with. Maybe some time after that.
What fucked things up is that I decided to give my resident superhero Emma Earl a bigger role in this story. Except in this story Emma’s only 13 and obviously not a superhero. She’s not even a sidekick. I also wrote in Randall “Red” Reed from the 4th Scarlet Knight story (and the 8th one too) as Aggie’s boyfriend. Those things are helping to take some things in a new direction.
This is what I meant in that entry about first drafts being shit. This is shit, but I’m hoping to clean it up in the next round. Maybe I should just call Roto Rooter.
Goodnight and have a pleasant tomorrow…
