This early morning, at 2a.m., I woke up with this urge to revise Wolf Trek, my next short that is coming out next week. (Did I mention that I farmed out the cover for that story! Yes! I can't wait.) This story is one I struggled to finish, so it's a real accomplishment to have it done. Just now, in the revision process, I hacked off six pages. The writing in those eliminated pages is solid, but it will leave too many loose ends. Besides, I may write a part 2 to it. We will see.
So in that revision process of the current story, the "damn" versus "damned" internal debate came up. I struggle with when to use damn or damned, so like a noob, I looked it up online. Guess what? They are interchangeable, and both can be adjectives or adverbs. So, fuck it. I stuck with damn for spoken English and damned for emphasis.
So, it is almost 4a.m., and I did my due diligence. I am quite happy with the additions, and can't wait to launch this story into the world. I just have to find the right divider images for the book design. I am obvi looking for a wolf one.
I hope you all have a productive day. I will post more of The Harvest later on this evening because that novel draft will get done this month, damn it.
Dream, wake, and write, but write. #Resist
