OK, friends, I am counting on everything working out, so I can launch "The Long Walk." It's part of the learning process for me and the precursor to "La Bruja del Barrio Loco."
In fact, I deeply admire anyone who puts out a story a day. Holy shit. I asked my friend Yankee how he was able to write for hours because it is exhausting, but he publishes one daily. He says you get used to it. Trust the writing process.
This morning, I put in my hour into The Harvest, my novel draft, but I realized if I am to finish this month, I will have to write at night, too. It's June 11th, good Lord! A lot of times, my energy is shit in the evenings, but the desire to finish this draft is greater. (Plus, I didn't want this piece to be 500 pages, heck more than 300 pages, but it's not going to be done at 300 pages, like I thought.)
And, sadly, that is all the time I have. I need to create a sheet for one of my classes, and to review the story "The End of the Whole Mess" by Stephen King. It is a really interesting dystopian piece of literature that has no glimmer of hope.
All my stories have a glimmer of hope. Wait until you read "The Long Walk".
Keep writing and celebrate your victories today! #Resist
