After stuttering along with my current work and making perhaps 500 words a day (other issues been pressing heavily), I put it aside and hammered out 2,000 words on an idea that had been rattling around my brain and it felt really good.

Currently re-reading a draft zero and trying to decide whether I'm depressed at the really dumb errors or happy at how much of it seems to bear up to me.

Wrote 4800 words yesterday like some sort of keyboard warrior maniac, after taking a week or so off while I was with my bf.

It was a flashback to two of my character's meeting for the first time, so not even sure if I would use it in the overall story! D: But I liked it all the same, some people hate flashbacks and things like that, kills the tone etc, but I think its important in this instance, and was a good tone shift.

Up to 55k overall now. :)

Just over 1,000 this morning toward a new chapter 1. Pretty excited about where it's going.

ignored all my other responsibilities -- the backup server needing rebuilding, the error-spewing intellij configuration, the queries from my partner on our side project -- everything.

wrote 508 words on this month's short story.

woot!

Wrote 2000 words today on a rough draft.

Knowing myself it will take me at least 3 days to edit it till I am happy.
Once I receive feedback, most will be rewritten again  :D

It's been so long since I've written anything. A whole four days! I went back and trued up my first chapter a bit and read some of my other chapters of my WIP. It's been a couple weeks and I almost forgot how much joy I get from working on it. Teminds me that writing and creating relieves stress.

i have no idea if that's a typo for "tuned up your first chapter", but i love the phrase "trued up" and am totally gonna start using it.

trued up, yo.

Huh, I posted here the other day but it apparently didn't go through, must have logged me out when I posted or something.  :'(

Anyway, wrote about 2k today and 2k yesterday. I'm aiming to hit 90k words overall by Saturday, that way I would have written 90k in two months.
