Row 80 Check in #1

Greetings all,

I've been quite busy with new projects, both comic and novel related. I haven't been this productive or busy in years. It feels phenomenal to actually finish projects, to break through and see them polished. I've made the changes necessary to actually produce work. I've moved from just talking about the writing, to doing. I know this may seem insignificant, but being resolved to write daily, and to truly move forward with a career in mind, took far longer than I care to admit. I'll put up a few posts about this soon.

Anyway, on to some quick stats.

As of today, I was supposed to be at 6,000 words for this ROW80 which stands for Round of Words in 80 days for those who do not know. It is a simple competition. Write 1,000 words per day for 80 days, and BOOM, you have draft 0 of your new novel complete.

I am currently sitting at 4,700 words on my manuscript, which leaves me a tad behind. The reason for this is the 7,000 word outline I created during the first days of the competition. This is an effort to ressurect Augmented Genesis. It is a sci fi novel set just past the next technological singularity, and deals with biological implants, augmented reality, and solar storms. Fun stuff.

Anyway, to my other ROW80 associates, I hope your manuscripts are going well. To my fiends, go and kick ass.
