Word Count (23.04.13)

Words Written Today: 

1,523

Overall Word Count: 

98, 141 – A lot of what I wrote yesterday needed to be scrapped as it was going nowhere. I did hear on a podcast once that a writer is full of good words and bad words and the only way to get out the bad words is to write them down so hopefully I’ve managed to exorcise a few bad words from my system.

Favourite Lines I Wrote Today:

‘Wayne will get this nomination because of two things: His first name and his last name. John Wayne’s name is like American steel. People trust him. People believe what he says. People want to see him win. President John Wayne has a nice ring to it, don’t you think? We don’t need to sell our candidate because he’s been on every TV screen in America and been seen by every American being a war hero or a cowboy for the past thirty years. Doesn’t get more American than that. What are you guys selling? An Irish Catholic? Good luck.’

Lines I Wish I Had Written: 

Injun will chase a thing till he thinks he’s chased it enough. Then he quits. Same way when he runs. Seems like he never learns there’s such a thing as a critter that’ll just keep comin’ on. So we’ll find ’em in the end, I promise you. We’ll find ’em. Just as sure as the turnin’ of the earth.
