Chapter 19 Finished!

Possibly written in record time! Horatio is now finally off the island of Hven and back onto the island of Zealand. Hey, it's Denmark; they have 400 islands. Not my fault. Anyway, the protagonist returns to Elsinore and the final act begins. Yay! There's going to be a bear in an upcoming chapter, which will be very cool. It's like I'm John Irving.

wordcountometer = 68,064!

Finished draft by September 30! Or else!

  1. You best not be teasing about the bear.

  2. Oho! The bear scene is going to be really, really cool! I can't wait to write it!

    Act V is going to be as over-the-top as I can possibly make it. A bear! Hallucinations! A Viking funeral! EELS!!!

  3. If I've said it once, I've said it a hundred million times: the only thing better than bears is more bears, and the only thing better than more bears is eels.

  4. Ooh, there's an "or else" involved in your deadline. I like that Mr. Bailey. That's hard core.

  5. Nevets: What about bears juggling eels?

    Dr. Malasarn: Yes, consequences and repercussions! I don't know what they will be, but hopefully I'll never have to find out! I wrote about 500 words of Chapter 20 at lunch today. Very soon, Horatio will have an interesting and disturbing conversation with Ophelia. She'll be blue.

  6. Consequences are important with fiction writing, yes. You must stick to that, and if you don't, me and Domey can give you "an else" if you like. We know where you live. Wait, we don't...well, we have your address. Mwhahaha.

  7. Yeah, we have your address. We could buy all these scary greeting cards on Halloween and mail them to you the rest of the year. So you better finish, or else.
