Sept Dare Day 25 - Hacking Away 1500 Words Or So

The days are blending together. I write a flash story and sent it out to publisher, but maybe I did that yesterday....

I did a lot of snippets, a lot of them on scrap paper. Chapter 12 is still going slowly. Chapter 15 decided to shape up a little. And the end started rolling out.

I could write a couple hundred more words, but I think I need to wash my hair instead. (Personal hygiene is not the enemy of the writer....)

(EDIT: and of course I got out of the shower and had a whole new scene from a different chapter live in my head, so there I was dripping wet, scribbling madly at 3am. Hey, when things catch fire, they catch fire.)

Good luck with the flash fiction!

Love the new header on your blog. :)

Thanks!

I actually went to the new design a while ago - it's one of the new more flexible Blogger designs.

I did, however, make the layout a little wider the other day, so that the embedded video would fit. (I'll probably tweak the sidebar a bit, later on.)
