Word Count: 1,000~
Extended writing session! I missed Thursday’s writing session due to work excessive work. So I decided to have an extended writing session on Saturday. I managed to write a full character window, and get about a thousand words done on Everlasting. I was joined by Codie who did school work, so I wasn’t alone. Writing went well overall with no major hiccups or blocks. I took a small rest between the window and writing on the novel. Honestly if Codie and I didn’t have errands, I’d probably continue writing. Maybe do some editing on Gerald or something.

Everlasting is feeling good again. And perhaps a bit overwhelming as I get to new territory and realizing I don’t feel like it is as well fleshed out as I like. Marla and Olivia are about to get out of the sewers and start interacting with new characters again and that is Dangerous because it means I have to make up what else the city is doing besides getting eaten by zombies or burning down. I also added some bible information. For example the equivalent of Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills is called Raol Drive in Qual City. It’s where most of the character windows are taking place right now (see below). Also thought up some new slang and a new piece of technology tentatively named wound gel.
While writing, Olivia I ended up giving her a semi-romantic connection to an NPC that randomly appeared. I think this will turn out to be really interesting and useful and I’m kinda proud of the decision. I think there is only a small chance I’ll regret it later! Whee.
Free Write (Everlasting Windows)
Character windows are turning out to be pretty easy, which I’m not sure is the point. I’m not always learning many new things the characters but I learn at least one thing and I think I better establish who they are. Plus it feels like I’m being productive for both Everlasting and still writing regularly for Free Writing! As I noted above, I’m also fleshing out the world somewhat as I write as well, although I’ll claim nothing in the character windows is cannon unless I want it to be… then again that is true of my novel as well, for now!
No work done. Still needs to be edited.
No work done.
No work done (that I remember).
So that’s from me!
