I thought 4000 words would be simple. After all, I’d just written 9000. What’s another 4000?


Found myself stuck. I had killed off the characters, then brought them back from the dead (spoiler!), and everyone is now happy as they head back to the air ship.

Now what?

Spent awhile trying to figure out where to go from there. Surely there was more story to be told, but what exactly? Played with potential unintended consequences of bringing back the dead, and came up with some intriguing options. My biggest concern was making sure that the ending was happy, since some of the consequences could take the story in decidedly unhappy directions. Found an answer and got inspired to start writing again.

Not a fantastic word count day, but definitely headed in the right direction.
