Triple 7's

According to OpenOffice's running tally, the book now stands at 16,777 words. (Funny enough, I don't actually write in OpenOffice -- I write in Notepad [I'm old-school, yo], then copy and paste over to OpenOffice to get a word count every now and again.)

I look at some of the passages I've written and just cringe, but I really like some others, so that's a positive sign. Besides, there's time to prop up the bits I'm not too fond of in editing, which will come later -- the whole idea is to have you all along for the ride as I bang out the first draft, so I'm leaving everything pretty much as it is when it goes up on Twitter (with the exception of fixing a minor spelling mistake or two along the way).

I'm humbled and flattered by all of the new folks who have started watching in the past couple of weeks, and I hope to keep you at least mildly entertained for the next few. Thanks again for reading, and keep hitting me with comments, emails, and DMs. I'll probably use the next posting to answer a few questions I got this week, but for now -- food.


  1. Just started following you on Twitter last night...VERY interesting project! I am curious to see where the story goes.

  2. Thanks! I hope to keep everyone at least mildly entertained.
