01/11/2008: Wow.

Parts six and seven of The Fall of a Leader are better than I remembered. In the memory of writing them, part VI went approximately "RAMBLERAMBLERAMBLERAMBLERAMBLERAMBLE" for 20,000 words, with the, ahem, R-scene just kind of there. I mean, it's still kinda rambly and all and it's getting the most serious edits of all the parts, but it definitely feels more sensible when I read it than it felt when I was writing it. (The rambling was very interesting to write, of course, because I'm weird like that, but the whole time I was worried that people would be wondering if there was supposed to be a storyline in there somewhere, which doesn't seem quite as likely now.)

And part VII… the chapter where I actually reached 50,000 words is awesome. In the authorial way, of course, where I just get the feeling that most of it is much better worded already than it would be if I were to rewrite this chapter from scratch right now. I don't know how much anyone will like the content, of course, but the style is far above average for me. And somehow this happened while I was sitting there knowing that I'd have crossed the NaNo finish line later that day, where I should have been thinking too bubbly and incoherently to write properly.

Out of interest, which chapter was the one where you reached 50,000 words?

You got rid of the Carl and Polaryu thing… why? BECAUSE IT'S VITALLY IMPORTANT TO THE PLOT, THAT'S WHY. I knew you would decide to implement it after all!

I kid, I kid. :P

The one where I reached 50,000 words was the chapter where Stormblade met Nightmare. I was really satisfied with that thing.
