As hinted in the previous post, this week has been abysmal in terms of writing. But I have come to a conclusion, namely to focus on one story. That story is my latest one, which started as more of an excercise to be honest. It is post apocalyptic with a touch of horror and supernatural. For some reason it really grabbed me, and I feel a real need to know how it ends. It is a discovery type story, meaning I have little to none outline. In fact, the only thing I started with was that its setting was post apocalypse, and the main character was an older man. Everything past that has been a discovery for me. Anyways, here are the numbers. Abysmal indeed.

Urban Supernatural: 8,806 words (±0)
