I am off to work very soon, (GLAHHHHHHHH, meetings), but I thought I should write this first.

I'm still alive!

Yes, I am still puttering away at my novel. And despite the fact that the story seems to have no end, I am still fully capable of pulling a yesterday, and writing a couple of scenes that amuse me, and do not advance the tiny plot in any way whatsoever. *sigh*

So, my word count is 63,115, and I still don't have them planet side. I mean, you have to admire such exotic fail, in a way. I start a story with two images, stick another one in the middle so there is time between explosions, and by the time I actually write the darn thing, it's obese with characters. I need to stop worrying about the passage of time and just kidnap the kids already. Dum de dum de dum...

And most of the novel is just, silly. *sigh* But today I get to- *evil laughter*

Isn't it funny how much we worry about the passage of time? I'm like, "Ok, today these characters have to kill time because they can't do THAT until those characters get THERE."
Blarg. I decided just to hell with the whole timeline. MY CHARACTERS ARE TIME LORDS

*ahem* Anyway have fun today :D

I lost track of time even before my character did.
And sometimes it's night time and sometimes it's day time and sometimes it's both in the same sentence. Because continuity is for n00bs :P
