I started a time traveler story several weeks ago, a fun little thing that I expected to run about 4,000 words total and take a matter of hours to write. HA HA HA HA HA. It's well over 5,000 words now with another thousand to go--maybe more--and I don't think I'll ever finish it at this rate. I also have the distinct feeling that the story is flopping around all over the place, completely out of my control.
You know, I used to under-write. Now I'm turning into one of those wasteful over-writers who have to go in and cut cut cut once a story's done.
I've had a headache all day. Hell with the time travelers, I'm taking some aspirin and going to bed to read something someone else wrote.
