Project X: The First Draft is Done

It’s done. I’m fried and overwhelmed and I just had a good cry about it. Of course.

My head feels totally empty. I tried to come up with something more exciting to say, but I am fresh out of everything.

Project X: The Light at the End of the Tunnel

I think I’m just a couple thousand words away from completing my rough draft. The trick will be not to hurry though it so that I can be done. But I think it’s good. And I think the ending is going to be very satisfying.

I’ve tossed the everything but the kitchen sink into this project, bits and pieces from everything I’ve been working on and loved up until now, reconsidered and reworked into something that I hope just fucking crackles when you read it. And I want this last story to be all full of electricity, drawing connections between everything you read before but in new ways.

I want to be as good a writer as this material calls for.

That’s all I want.
