The word mines might look like this.

It’s week five of Clarion West, which means it’s week five of the Write-a-thon too. There’s still time to sponsor me!

I might actually meet my writing goals for the write-a-thon this year, for the first time. Mostly this is due to setting more realistic goals, but I’ve also been productive in the word department. The first of the two stories I promised myself (and the world) I would write clocked in at almost 11,000 words. Which of course means it will be impossible to sell–but that comes later.

Today I start on the second one, and honestly I suspect it will be on the long side too. Hopefully not AS long. Want to cheer me on and also receive a 100-word story on a postcard? Support Clarion West by sponsoring me!
