Re: Depression, Struggles and Light at the End of Every Tunnel Feeling discouraged about writing. Whine whine.

I’m 4,200 words into a 5,000 word limit story for a different writing site. I’ve stopped having fun, because I’m not sure how to pull off the ending, I don’t fully know the ending, I know this needs to be so much better, and the thought of a re-write make me ill.

I’ve never said I want to be published, not in any real have-to-work-hard-for-it way. In fact, I like writing most when I don’t have to work hard. Haiku: best thing ever.  (Well, I like most things when I don’t have to work hard for them., who am I fooling?) it’s so easy to be mediocre. Let’s all do it.

But I do have my fantasy of writing a full book. I really don’t know how all you who’ve done have the pure guts and Gaul to pull it off. If I can;t handle a 5,000 word story, then what?

Oh, stop writing stories for word-limit contests, you say? Well, where’s the fun in that? Writing for my friends is really the best thing.

Oh well. Tomorrow I’ll try to motivate myself. I think I have to just keep writing without the limit, take it to end, and see what I’ve got.

Re: Depression, Struggles and Light at the End of Every Tunnel Or blatantly insult and denigrate you for not agreeing with them.
(I’m looking at you, Mrs. JMack’s Trump-loving siblings.)

Re: The Virus thread There's now a campaign going on here to raise money for the NHS.
As valid and commendable that is, personally I'd rather give money to the small local/regional charities that are in extreme difficulties at the moment because the fundraising stopped.

Re: The Virus thread That's what taxes are supposed to be for.

(I assume you mean the 'raising money for the NHS' bit, rather than supporting the charities, hehe)

Re: Member birthday calendar @Nora, happy birthday! I’m remembering the first story you ever posted here, adventures in Australia, hand fetishes, sketches, the RPG, stories of moving to Scotland, lunch in London, and the brilliant advice you gave me on for “Dragon Weather”. Have the best of birthdays!

Re: Politics and other ailments of the real world If anyone doesn't know about this initiative you probably ought to.


This was being talked about at least 6 years ago when I still worked in tech. This may seem like a great idea but the potential applications should scare you with 5 minutes thought and once it's here it won't be going away.

Re: What are you currently reading? Shadow for Silence in the Forest of Hell by Brandon Sanderson - it is in the Dangerous Women anthology and in my opinion is the best thing he has written. I am not a massive fan but highly recommend this for people who usually don't like him.

Re: The King's Paws (with one holding a bottle of Peri Peri sauce.)
As I was saying to my mum, this working from home thing, and the lockdown, means that I've actually been exercising/moving way more!
Half-hour walks every other day, plus longer on weekends, plus the running... before, I only walked from the car to the office, about 5 mins, during the week...

Opposite for me. I am usually so active so really struggling. Been running 5k a day so that is something.

Why was your profile picture the same as Bea's?  ;D I just got confused and thought that Bea had made a double post contradicting herself, hahah.
