Tree Dreaming

Chapter 12: Pound

**Pepper Update**: There are only two people that I know of actively reading this, and one of them told me that she liked the once a day thing, so starting Monday, Pepper Has An Adventure will go back to once a day. If you aren't reading, ignore this announcement. :)

"So, how do you get out of here?" Pepper asked, looking around for the first time. He had no idea how anyone had thrown anything through a window, as there were actually not any windows in the place. It was basically a big hole in the ground. It was surprisingly well lit for a hole in the ground with no windows, but there also appeared to be no doors.

"You can't see it," Pinkie said, "But Ferret is pointing that way," and she pointed to a spot on the dirt wall. "There's a door there, it just blends very well."

"Okay. Do you want to come with me?" he asked her. It seemed that it would be better to have someone along for this.

"Why don't I go along with you, Pepper?" came Ferret's voice, "As it was your dot and my window that were involved."

Pepper didn't know quite how he felt about having someone he couldn't see along with him, but he supposed it was better that going alone. Plus, he felt rather awkward about approaching this mysterious door he couldn't see.

Project X: 14,594 words.

AMAZING. The most I've ever written EVER without some sort of deadline or other people writing with me. I joined novel_in_90 to have somewhere to post my word count every day and feel accountable, but it's not as stressful as NaNo, and probably no one would notice if I didn't post. So it's still sort of "unmotivated" writing. OR SOMETHING.

WHAT I'M SAYING HERE IS, I'M EXCITED.

Editing on short story has fallen flat. What I need is to sit in front of a computer for a few hours and work on it, but that requires having free reign of an internetted computer for a few hours. Which will probably happen this weekend, so I hope I remember to edit. Because it would be neat to have something actually edited to present to the world at large! As if to say, "Look, world, I CAN edit!" Which, you know, might help me feel better about editing one of my big ass novels that are substantially more than 2,700 words.

Mostly, though, I really want to play WoW. I mean, REALLY really. I'll probably do that tonight after Megan and I trek out to the DOLLAH THEATER. Which, if I recall correctly, is actually the DOLLAH-FIFTY THEATER. But it's WAY cheaper than the friggin' nine bucks you have to pay to see a movie straight out of the box*.

'Kay, that's it for me. I HOPE EVERYONE IS HAVING AN AWESOME FRIDAY.




*Box OFFICE??? Oooh, you see what I did there?
