Some solid work on City of Lost. I’m flying by the seat of my pants here, but I trust the characters to lead me true. Almost 6K yesterday, and I finished Act I. I can’t imagine how it can be 20K. Every time I think about the word count demand for a play (can you say “amateur hour”?), my teeth start to grind. But I’ll push on and see what we come up with. I was rather frustrated by the end of the day, but walking back to the train after the show, I had a few ideas which I think might help sort things out.

Read Philip R. Craig’s Vineyard Prey. Very good. I like his writing. I figured out the who, but it took me awhile to get the why.

A bit of work done on Good Names this morning. I’m trying to get as much done as possible.

Show was fine yesterday, but I’m glad to be away from it for awhile. Next week will be tough.

My presence online will be sporadic in the next few days. The NHL Draft starts tonight and the America’s Cup Challenge starts tomorrow – both of which I’m covering for FemmeFan. My schedule revolves around those schedules – and I have to shift everything else – the other writing I need to do – around that.


Good Names – 29,012 words out of est. 100,000

  1. I’m not even in the writing business, or the theater business, but it does seem strange to have a specicfied word count for a play.
    Best of luck with the FemmeFan covering. Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. Hey Devon,

    Way to go on the writing progress. I set a schedule for myself with word count, and I am hoping for the best (That it helps me, and doesn’t make me feel hurried).

    Is 20,000 words too few or too many (I am not at all familiar with script writing). Or, is it just the fact that word count is different each time?

    Alrighty, have a great weekend!

  3. Good luck with the NHL and the American Cup.
