Today I only wrote 174 words but I edited a couple of hefty scenes which only required tweaking it here and there.
I did this on and off during the day as I was listening to the second annual The Horror Show with Brian Keene Telethon for the Scares that Care charity. Brian, Dave, Mary, Phoebe, and Lombardo set out to earn $20,000 in 24 hours, and they did it with about fifty minutes to go, I chipped in what I could. At the end of the 24 hours they’d got a total of $21,591. It’s worth checking out the #BrianKeeneTelethon tag on Twitter as there is some one pictures and videos from the event on there. A lot of the conversation on there about the event is fantastic as well. Well worth checking out. I would love to have listened to the whole 24 hours but I needed sleep and miss about four hours of it. From a writing point of view there was a lot of interesting conversation about many aspects of writing.
I’m glad I took the time to listen. I worked it so I had some vacation time while it was on so I could be a part of it. Just sitting here and listening and interacting with the other listeners. It was great hearing the updates and when they hit targets. I cheered big time when they hit the 20k.
Please check the Scares that Care page out through the link. It’s a great charity who do a lot of good.
Tomorrow I’m going to dive into the edit/rewrite I’m woking on.
