The pleasure of nailing a 3000-words historical dark fantasy in a single afternoon!
It’s the sort of thing that makes one feel good.
Sort of what the heck, I can still do it!
It is not that hard, really.
In fact, you can do it too. Here’s what you’ll need:
- a basic story idea
- Wikipedia to check historical facts
- 3 Mars bars (or cheap knock-off), to be awarded one every 1000 words
- the full knowledge that the work won’t be paid, so you better get it out of the way fast
And I know, I know
writer = guy that gets paid for writing
Sorry to let you down, folks.
Indeed the payment was one of the first thing that was promised me, but then the money sort of fizzed. So it turned this job into another sort of work – just showing off, a cheap (ah!), childish display of writing prowess: one full story, 3000 words long, in one afternoon, from empty page to finished first draft.
what the heck, I can still do it!
