Snow Person

The best thing about building strange, comical looking human facsimiles out of ice is that they melt, deforming slowly, becoming sinister mutant things in the grip of a strange, inexorable plague, wasting pitifully away.

At least, I like it.

Today I wrote words. Then I edited some other words. The end result is that, cumulatively, my total word count for today is….


-118 words.

I’m in negative word equity. Sometimes I wonder why I do this to myself.

    That’s what happens when you spend too much time editing and not enough time writing!
