1500 words in an hour and a half or more?  I thought my fingers were moving faster.  Oh well, great progress anyway.  I've completely revamped the beginning of this scene.  Yosef's beginning to tap into "the sense" which allows him to detect the presence of enemies.  It could prove dangerous because he just found out that the enemy can sense him as well.  Topped it off with a horse fight which...I honestly have no idea how to make two horses fight in writing.  In fact, one of them's not really a horse.  More like an evil monster horse.  (Okay, it's still a horse...)

-200 words yesterday as part of editing this longer short story down. Think I need to lose another 700 words, and doing it without losing any elements of the story is a right pain in the neck.

Dumped out 1500 words and got a project back on touch after getting frustrated editing another. Good feeling  :)

That moment when you're so close to finishing, but you know you have to proofread your work after...Ugh!  I editing/rewrote for at least six hours with one break in between.  Talk about a crazy marathon!

Sympathy vibes.

972 here. Got the scene done. I was forced to be social so no more than that.

3247 after a week away, not great writing but I did it and I don't care :P

Also wrote my short story for this months writing contest last night, 1700 words so need to edit later. I'll let it sit for now, bit weird and probably won't get any votes but who cares! :D

Well, this is about as polished as I'm gonna get it. Can't believe all the work I did this weekend! But it's done. I'm exhausted. I've read this thing backwards and forwards. Time to take a break. The whole thing totals in at 118,396 words. What a beast!

Wrote maybe 100 words to sketch out the characters of my monthly.
Now I just need a "who" to give purpose to my MC, and a Why. But I have half a mind to have an indifferent who and no Why, to be a bit dark.

Finished the 700-800 words of my monthly. Needs polish and shit but that's for tonight...maybe.
Also, it has a bonus for both French Literature and American film noir titles. But don't worry if you don't get either  :P

Huh. I envy you. My monthly feels like it'll be a pain this month. I'll try to make it worth it, but I'm still hunting for an appropriate soundtrack to write to.

300 words to open my monthly. It'll be a biopunk dystopian.

Laid out about 1200 words, but then spent about 3 hours staring at my screen and tearing up bits of my outline that aren't working... so good and bad day in different ways.

Oh, a Vash The Stampede avatar. Nice. I'm rewatching the anime and re-reading the mangas at the moment. Huge favourite of mine for the past 15 years. You've got good taste.
