Can't believe I actually finished it. Well, more like a first draft. No editing, so it's a total piece of crap so far. And it's 2.500 words, but I know a big part that will get cut, at least.
Slow and steady wins the race.

Honestly not sure I'll make it. I'm sick with coughing, my story is quite atmospheric (I guess?) but rather boring. Not sure it's worth the hassle.

My PC was with a lot of noise, so I decided to clean it and replace the thermal thing on the processor.

When I went to put back the cooler, broke one of the...locking legs (oh, the vocabulary of Lanko). Already had 2 broken ones. Had a spare cooler, got two locking legs and replaced them. Then broke those two again when locking them into the motherboard...

Now my cabinet is open and horizontally placed. It's working, at least and the noise disappeared. Just another reminder to make a backup of stuff.

First draft finished! its barely readable, but I got something down.
Hopefully get enough time to make something out of it.
Also, typing 1,500 words on a tiny little phone is terrible, I need to get my laptop fixed.
It's the silence that scares me. It’s the blank page on which I can write my own fears.

Woop! its readable.  Will work on it a little more before submitting, but its a proper start at writing again, been too long.

From 2.600 words to 1.435.

Still needs polishing, but now I'm certain it will be posted!

Well for once I might end up writing too much and cutting down. I wrote two double pages on notebook today, that would be nice to layer things down if it were a 2k story but as it is, I'll have to experience the famous cutting stage.
I'm pleased with what I have though, so I'll keep over working and try to edit quickly tomorrow.  :-[

Posted the story yesterday.
Today: 1,000+ words into a second Young Love story.

Hmmm... if I finish it, will I need to get people to vote on whether I un-post yesterday's and post today's?
Or must Atku make a reappearance to post the seond. But, no, that would be cheating.

I'm amazed that you guys write so much. When I write, it's a strange skeletal creature in need of some flesh.

I can't wait to read about a strange skeletal creature in need of flesh that experiences first love...
