Wordcount Wednesday

I'll keep it short and sweet this week. Work continues on Failstate. As of a moment ago, I have 7,710 words put into it. About 35 pages or so, in five chapters. I've put together some halfway decent turns of phrases (at least, in my grubby little opinion). I was even able to piece together some details that had been eluding me for a while.

But I'm glad that I was able to add 4,476 words this week. That's over half. I wish I could double my word count every week. Could you imagine if wordcounts were exponential? Wow. Sadly, they're not. I'll keep going with the few hundred words here and there until this beast is done.

I do think I need to do some more research, only I'm a little nervous to proceed. I'd love to talk to a police detective about interrogation techniques, but I'm not sure how that conversation could possibly end well. "Hey, Mr. Police Detective, I'd like to pick your brains on how you would conduct an interrogation on a superhero." Yeah.

Well, I've got some time to figure out that bit of dialogue. But in the meantime, onward and upward.

I'm robynnt from The Anomaly, and my brother happens to be a cop and a nerd-at-heart. I already asked his opinion and took notes on the answers :) While amused, he was also willing to speculate.
If you're interested, PM me at The Anomaly and I'll share. If not, no worries.
