In process, March 2010

Manners. First draft novel. 90% complete. When this is done, I think I will do some short stories as my daily words. I am sick, sick, sick of this pointless crap.

"Dolphin". Short Story. Editing. I decided that it was trying too hard, and took out any sentence that seemed overworked. This got rid of 300+ words. Then I sent it to the TPL writer-in-residence. I also let Ed read it, and he said he didn't understand what was going on with the experiment with the dolphin, and what George's goal was with the surgery on Honorine, so I guess I took out too much. Oh well, back to the drawingboard.

"Bezoar". Short Story. Third draft. Returned to this, made it a bit less disgusting.

"In a Nutshell". Short Story. 233 words of start.

"Mary Alice Goes to Hell". I had about 1500 words from January, and I finished the draft, which came to around 5000 words.
