I’ve spent much of the weekend editing Ulrik, cutting here, adding there. Right now I’m printing a full second draft of the manuscript to give it another thorough reading, then another editing. I just thought I’d post a new word meter since I’m currently over my stated goal of 100,000 words.
With no newspaper or magazine deadlines this week, I’m hoping to make good progress in proofreading.
This morning I also got an idea for a Western novel. It isn’t fully developed yet, but the basis for the story is there. A little fermenting and some time and it might be worth something.
The New York Times had a nice piece on zombies today. They quoted nice folk like Brian Keene, Bryan Smith, Monica Kuebler of Rue Morgue magazine, and Don D’Auria of Leisure Books. I should provide links to all those people, but I’m too lazy.
