Shiny Idea Update

So I thought I'd jot off a brief Shiny Idea update, because we have indeed run off together. :-)


Word Count Thus Far: 2,087

Character Deaths: a pile of dessicated bones and mention of a before-the-story-started murder. Does that count as two?

Strange Winged Creature: 1

Times the Author has Gotten Disturbed: 2

Next-to-Last Sentence: It seemed that she sighed, though it came out more as a rush of air, hot and tinged with flame.

Thus far it seems to be going well. We'll see how long that lasts.

Did I mention this story is weird?

I believe all stories should be weird. I love your break down.

Joanna said...

Cate, I agree. And so does all the rather peculiar works of fiction I've managed to produce thus far. :-)

Thanks for visiting!

Oooo! Yay! The stats sound absolutely wondering, and if you have disturbed yourselves twice, that means it must be good. ;P I love the sentence btw, it bodes beautiful things for this story. I hope you can keep it up, because I am so excited about it!
