My novel's first draft, which has lain untouched for almost two months, sits at 14,584 words. My new plan is to write 1000 words every weekday and 2500 words every weekend-day until this first draft is completed.
The working title has been The Other Dead Guy for a while. I'm also considering Dead and Alive and Deadlife. Or The Deadlife of Alex Cropp. I shouldn't even be thinking of a title yet. The themes are still clanging around in my skull. All I have after a few years of considering the story is characters, settings, a plot, and some crazy description.
Oh. I guess that's a story. Except that it's mostly in note form, or still in my head. I need to remedy that.
