Oz Whiston writing as Oz Drummond


I slipped a bit yesterday. About 500 words and because I expected to make my count later, I didn't enter it on the site. It was a day for clearing my head and then family obligations ate up my time. Shopped at Target and the get-up-and-out was actually just what I needed. Now, back to my fairy tale and if it stays stuck, I shall move on to a different story. Though, really, I want to put this one to bed. I started it almost 4 years ago. The ideas and plot kept waffling on me. The ending came to me this time and now I just need to write to that direction instead of wandering about in the wilderness.

I was IM'ing with an old friend in the evening and The Dude wanted me to cut and paste the conversation into my current rough draft for word count. He said it counted as dialog. Right. Nothing at all to do with suns, moons, or Rubys. I did not do that. Those 500 words were legit draft verbiage.
