It's funny. Two weeks ago, I couldn't do more than 8 pushups without going "OH FUCK THIS." And I'm not actually that lazy a person, I just tended to neglect those muscles really badly.
Now I'm at the point where I decide to do 15-20 while I'm waiting for the kettle to boil for my morning coffee. Bloody hell. Don't even get me started on my actual workouts.
It still strikes me as funny that I started this exercise program at the same time that Astray starts to focus on the daily goings-on at the RTC...
It isn't just Nick that hates pushups. I despise the fuck out of them too. That's why I do a minimum of 50 of them a day now. It makes sense when you don't think about it.
Anyway, speaking of that: 45,000 words so far. A single scene managed to top 6,000 words. Sheesh. It's hard to get anything out of that damn cheetah sometimes.
I'm working pretty quick at it, but I can't swear by any particular estimation of when it will be ready to be uploaded. It's the most important chapter of the most important story I've ever written so I'm trying to not rush things.
I should point out I AM considering splitting the final chapter into two (again, since chapter 5 was initially part of it as well), except this time it would be to keep in with the chapter structure of previous chapters. It won't matter ultimately, but it does mean I'd upload that bit a little quicker. I'll see how it flows. I'm trying to avoid pissing people off with continuous, depressing, cliff-hanger endings then making them wait for the next chapter.
The final chapter should be about 60,000 words, putting the total length up to roughly 200,000 words. This is barring any editorial mutilation I subject it to later, of course. Even Tai's Story needs one final go-over, if I'm being honest.
In short, folks, yes I am writing. I'm also working, studying and exhausting the shit out of myself physically almost every night.
And I'm actually enjoying it.
I don't get it either.
