No Tomorrow: Day 22

Today, I got the bright idea to write outside.  It was a nice, sunny day, so it seemed like a good thing to do.  Ah, but it backfired.  It was such a relaxing day that I found myself relaxing more than writing half the time.  Still got a solid 1,600 words out of it.  Unfortunately, I still have at least another two thousand to go.

Aw, crap.  It never seems like I’m getting enough words written in the day.

No Tomorrow is covering just a week of story time right now.  That is, in the universe of the story, only a week has gone by since the first page.  I don’t have a specific time scale in mind.  It could be a month, a year, a decade.  Still, I’m well over a hundred pages into it.  I would have thought that more time would have gone by.  Joke’s on me, I guess.

The word count I’m aiming for is still a hundred thousand words, but that I’ve covered just a week of story time, I think I might have to add another fifty thousand on top of that.  That’s nothing set in stone.  It’s just a possibility at the moment.

On top of everything, I’m going back to my day job of tutoring tomorrow, which, of course, means I’ve got a few hours less each day for writing.  Having the whole summer to myself was nice while it lasted.  This was really why I wanted to get the first draft done by the end of July, so that I wouldn’t have to worry about it alongside getting my tutoring work done.

But hey, shit happens, you know?
