We be done? WE BE DONE!!!

50k have come and gone. Now...who actually HAS 50k words? ^_^

To all of those who took the time to sit down and write anything from a single sentence, to a paragraph, to a first chapter that couldn't quite get your rolling, to the whole damn thing, congratulations for putting in the effort.

For those of you who already read Neil Gaiman's blog don't click on this cut it's a lot of repetitive to you.

For those left I thought this might be helpful.

Subject:The Self-Explorative Journey? Writing About Writing, Like Thinking About Thinking.
Posted by:maltlick.
Time:1:33 pm.
So, being SUPER far behind in the creative proccess, today is "Where do I want to go/what do I want to do?" day. Sort of an outline, but also casting a wider net on the ideas that I need to deal with, and what exactly I need to do with them.

But then I realized that with all my ramblings, I run the risk of having lots of spindly arms of "concept" floating about, attached to the center body. It's been drilled into my skull that this isn't good. It needs to connect again and again. I kinda think that's horse huckey, in a way. It was then I noticed that there's a tenant of writing that wants to express itself with as little words as possible. How far would they go? Are they searching for their own name of God? One word which would envoke the pathos and grandeur of existence?

I don't know. But I'm pretty sure I'm not going to write a one-word novel soon.

Some of you may have seen this. It's a pretty hilarious and dead-on "guide" to writing an Epic Fantasy Novel.

Enjoy.
