Okay well hopefully that's the most unredeemably obnoxious thing I'll ever write. It did a number on my momentum—I don't know how many days I missed but it felt like a lot. Let's pencil in another post-or-die session for the next blogothing, then.

What I'm wondering now is whether the freedom to let that story simmer for days on end helped it or damaged it. You'd think not having to worry about blog deletion would be the less stressful option, but in this case the temptation to agonise made the process of writing Hate Engine pretty nightmarish.
