Twenty Thousand

Just a mere three days after I announced I’d reached 10,000 words for NaNoWriMo I am pleased to announce that I have just cracked 20,000 words. Meaning that after starting the competition seven days late, I am just one day behind.

If I write 3,333 words tomorrow I’ll be back on track.

Work in six hours. Ugh.

 “Good luck.” He says.

Good luck, what sort of thing is that to say after leaving someone stranded two thousand years in the past with no memory. Good luck weren’t the words. ‘You’re screwed’ seemed more apt.

“…Thanks. Do you want him bringing back alive?” I ask.

“I don’t care.” The doctor replies. He pushes one of the buttons and the doors close. The elevator disappears into the floor once more; I light a candle and drop it down the hole after the elevator to see how far it went; but it’d blown out pretty quickly.

Brilliant. A perfectly good candle wasted. It was going to be one of those days.

Favourite music includes; Mumford and Sons, Jason Mraz, Eminem, Chris Cornell, Ludovico Einaudi, Goo Goo Dolls, Muse, 30 Seconds To Mars basically a wide variety of anything that's real, I hate dance, trance and anything like that, I don't consider that to be music.

  1. You should make a chapter be “U U U U U U” for 30,000 times. You’ll be over half way there and people will think you’re unique and different but I will hate you.

    1. Haha I just tried to create a document containing 50,000 U’s so I could send it you to read as a joke but then it crashed Microsoft Word around 36,000.

  2. Pete, nothing to do with the post.

    Your new site theme you have it two column, when i bring it up for poets corner its three column, did you change it in the dashboard to two.

      1. Sorry, what i meant was it has two columns and a sidebar, when i try the theme it has three columns and a sidebar, did you change it to two columns +

        1. =/ Do you mean Excellence Asylum? That has two columns and a sidebar; it was like that already though I didn’t need to change anything. Theme’s can be changed via Appearance > Theme Options.

          1. Yes i can change them ok , i’ll give it a try and see what downloads because three columns and sidebar is to much, ok i’ll let you know.

                    1. There you go, it looks ace, liking the reddish theme too. There’s a way to change that green bar at the top too so it matches the rest of the site.
