So Much for That...

Well, crap. Didn't get the round story done. Now I'm behind on my timeline for the monthly goals. Crap. Double Crap.

But, the good news is, I have worked on it. And it's really, really cool. If I do say so myself. And I do. Now the problem is I want to just keep going and going and going. How will I hand it over? It's kind of an addicting world for me. Crazy people all over the place, those are the best kind to write about.


  1. I suggest you write till you've run out of time. Did we say you was only allowed one chapter?... Maybe. But we didn't specify how long the chapter had to be.

    I think you should go right up to the point where you go "and then all hell broke loose!" Or an equivalent, and stop there.

  2. Just hand it over. You'll get to work on it again in seven months or so. Really, it'll go by faster than you may think.

  3. Remember - it doesn't count as collaboration if you do it all by yourself. :)

    Think of it this way, handing over the round story now is practice for when your son goes off on his own later. Sure, you just want to keep them both forever, but sooner or later you've got to let them go. It'll be okay, really, it will.

    Besides, you have your own (non-round) novel to be working on. You remember, the one you owe me pages from.

  4. Remember, Jenny, you're the one who always says it's easier writing someone else's story. Maybe that's why you don't want to let it go. Let it go. I want pages of FJR, too, ya know. Your story is great and you'll get there.

  5. No, Whit! Don't encourage her!
