    Wrote a little bit today, but I've mostly been streamlining my Word and desktop setup so I don't have to navigate through clutter...and also reduce the number of distractions that plague them. It's been a bit of a problem. XD It doesn't help that I don't have music that fits the mood I'm trying to write for, so I have to sift through my collection and see if anything fits...might as well expand my favorites with that search.

    I am currently working on a fanfic side project: Final Fantasy 1-6, 10, and 12. I'm doing those games because I'm most familiar with them, having played those games, some even to the end, though I haven't beaten any.

    Wrote 600 more words Phantom Project before I realized the character's been wondering about something this entire chapter that could've been explained literally in the first paragraph of the chapter. >.> Derp. Oh, well. It's an easy fix, but that's what I get for not touching the fic for 4 or 5 months and forgetting stuff, I guess.

    Well on my way to finishing the chapter I'm working on. If I'm lucky, I might be able to finish my story by Monday! Then I can just plan and outline future stories while tackling a full-time job for the summer.

    750 words of characters quipping at each other like the brats they are and changing scenes to a cute lil seaside cafe with aquariums for small water-types to swim around in if trainers own 'em. :3 Kinda inspired by Amity Square in DPP.

    2468 words. I can sometimes pump out about 7 pages a day if I'm lucky. My record might be about twelve, but it was all rubbish and I died shortly after.

    I'm not sure exactly how much I wrote in this specific session, but I've finished the first battle scene of my fic, and the whole thing stands at about 780 words as I'm typing this.

    I downloaded OneNote on mobile to try to encourage myself to write on my trip during downtime, but... yeah, that didn't happen. Doing anything of substance on mobile is a nightmare. The best I did was 500 words on the restaurant scene I mentioned a few posts up lol

    I want to do some writing on my phone instead of browsing hell websites or whatever, but it's such a hassle tbh. I haven't tried using onenote yet though, it didn't occur to me since I try using G docs. Onenote functions a lot better on mobile than G docs does so I'll give it a go!

    Eh, not much at all. Probably a few paragraphs. I'm not really feeling this chapter, it'll probably get bulldozed on the rewrite, but for now I'll stick with it.

    Haven't done much writing at all this week, outside of assembling instructions for a game I designed. Bit of a dilemna for me considering I have to havve a chapter up today...time for a marathon write, if I can manage it.

    @unrepentantAuthor

    If you want to write on your phone, I'd highly recommend a bluetooth keyboard. Sure, you might not be able to use it on a bus or anything, but you can just pop it open on a picnic table and write to your heart's content!

    Oh, and for writing material, OneNote is good for jotting down notes and outlines, but if you want to make chapters, Google Docs or Microsoft Word Mobile work better. I personally prefer Word, but I haven't given Google Docs a shot on my phone. Then again, I'm leery of Google's tactics, and avoid them whenever I can. Your choice though.
