RoW80 is still on a break between rounds. It starts on Monday, but I’ll probably have my post up on Sunday. Mostly so I can stick to my schedule. I’ve still been writing though. Boy, have I been writing. JuNoWriMo finish on Monday. I’d actually passed the 50k goal on Thursday. Ended up with over 54k for the month. Then, Camp NaNoWriMo started on Tuesday(today as of the time I’m writing this). In these two days, I’ve written over 5700 words. Over 5400 of those are on Stained by Ashes. I’m moving toward the climax. If I can keep writing like this, I hope to have the first draft finished by the end of the week. May or may not happen though.
And I should be getting an email from my CP today(Wednesday). She said I’m very good at stabbing her in the heart. Repeatedly. Lol. I’m going to take this as a compliment(because I’m an evil writer apparently).
So, since RoW80 hasn’t started back up yet, this will be mainly a WiPPet post. Adam has gone into town to tell the sheriff what he’s seen. This is the last 9 scenes from that scene(the last line refers back to something the sheriff said a bit earlier. But I didn’t want to include all that).
The sheriff’s ruddy face paled at that. “Burned alive?”
Adam gave a short nod. “Like I said, I didn’t know them. They didn’t deserve that though.”
The sheriff rubbed a hand over his eyes. Then, he let it drop again. “You said north of Patrick’s ranch?” At Adam’s nod, his brow furrowed. “That’s Kline land.”
“It wasn’t any of them.”
The sheriff’s face relaxed. “Squatters then.”
Adam’s jaw tightened. “They still didn’t deserve to die that way.”
“No. No, of course not.” The sheriff sighed and reached for his hat. “I suppose you want me to come out there.”
“I figured you’d want to see the bodies and bring them in. They deserve to be buried at least.”
“Right.” He sighed as he headed for the door. “Like I said, cut from the same cloth.”
Neither Adam or I were too fond of the sheriff here(and it’s not the last time he’s a bit of a jerk). Of course, the sheriff isn’t too fond of Adam either. And since it didn’t happen in his town, he’s not too concerned about it.
Only about 10 more scenes to finish this draft(unless I add more as I go). So, I don’t know if I’ll be sharing more of this next week or not. I guess we’ll see how much progress I make on it.
