#24HourWritingChallenge Took a break from writing to talk about writing … No!


Older kid to school … wife to work … fed and changed baby … put him down for a nap … inbetween WRITE! WRITE! WRITE!

I stopped about thirty minutes ago (11:00 my time) to write an update, but I opened e-mail and Social Media … no!!!

I “HAD” to respond to a couple issues dealing with a problem with documentary filming permission at an upcoming event and then chose to answer a few other questions related to various projects and writing jobs. I see now where all my writing time goes. I have a problem and like many people JAY WILBURN is my problem.

Aside from the long break, I wrote three thousand words thus far split between my Steampunk Cannibals in Space novel and a Bizarro Crossed-Genre retelling of the Bible. I may be submitting that second piece from Hell based on where it is going so far.

Why am I wasting time here unless you are buying a Jay Wilburn book as a direct result of reading this. The e-copy of TIME EATERS is just .99 right now, if that’s what you’re asking.

Back to work!!! Oh, wait, the baby’s waking up. Fix lunch and then BACK TO WORK!!!

Remember, words are magic bubbles that make us fly … and we all float down here!

1:30 2000 words on a mad scientist short story puts me at 5000 so far today … Did I mention that it is a Lesbian mad scientist story? 5000 words!!!

5:00 6000 words

9:00 8000 word — I even cheated and reread and edited the beginning of the story to fill out the characters — The Lesbian Mad Scientist story is turning into a beautiful, Southern Gothic tale of love, loss, and forgiveness. I think it is transcending the Lesbian Mad Scientist genre into a literary masterpiece. No offense intended toward Lesbian Mad Scientist writers.

Then, I gave up for today …
