Started writing a fic based on a beautiful opening I thought up.... Only to dead end right after said opening, whoops!

I've been editing what's already written of Flying in the Dark's letter 14. I haven't been posting in here every day, but I've written 6 or 7 days in a row at this point, so I'm happy for that. :)

Chapter 10 of An Unwanted Journey.

I think I might be writing Lance the wring way because I can't find a way to set up this thing I want to di with him and Hermes (get your mind out of the goddamn gutter!)

Trap them alone on a deserted island with nothing but chocolate, oysters, honey, and alcohol? Ensign, set mind course for The Gutter, Warp 9.3.

Nearly finished with my rather major revisions to the villain plotline of Unequivocant. In a way, I'm glad that it took a couple months, to an extent, because I've been able to implement more ideas I wouldn't have thought of until now. Three chapters to go, and then it's finally off to some brand new material!
 
I may be editing a bit too much

Did round one of editing for someone else’s fanfic chapter on FF.net. I technically count that as writing, and I should be able to finish edits by the time Tuesday rolls around so I can plan out how to rewrite Chapter 5 of The Ties That Bind/write Chapter 15 and hopefully plan out how I want it to go.

I FINALLY managed to get some writing done on Marvelous Journey chapter 49! Once I get through this chapter, the chapters after this will be a breeze! Especially since I've been wanting to write those for a while!

Well I continue to write my Ash versus Giovanni battle, so far Ash has lost 3 Pokemon and Giovanni 4. Thousands of words written and inspiration coming from the Cameron v Bianca fight.

Finishing up my revisions to Unequivocant, and I aim to post the first chapter to my new story before the end of the week. Just a little bit longer...

I had a productive day, despite how much time I wasted:
  • Rewrote Chapter 13 of Land of the Roses from the ground up.
  • Finished the draft of my next interlude.
  • Finished the draft of my next full chapter.
None are published yet, but the interlude should be out in the next few days. :D

screw it, it's out tonight

Not so much writing - well, it counts - as a critical look at a whole story arc. Made some minor corrections and a list of scenes to polish up

Working on Chapter 3 of my own fanfic. It's proving far different than the original. Much shorter, too.

Revised chapter 3 of the new Hunter, Haunted version up to the original's chapter 3. Gonna include old chapter 4 in this current chapter as well, so can't upload just yet. And speaking of uploading, I updated chapter 2 on this forum to the new one.

Also wrote a few words in the third part of Pletora's Story, mostly just to get it started.

Didn't get much chapter writing done today, but I expanded my plot outline to be more detailed, along with consolidating some chapters to help the story flow better. All for the better, hopefully.

I tried a new method today. It was a great success! I did 5 minute sprints once every hour for half my day. I'll try to increase it to 10 minutes in the future + try to do it every hour I'm awake whenever possible, although my time was limited today with assignments due and a scheduled power outage.

Sprint 1 – 411 words
Sprint 2 – 230 words
Sprint 3 – 295 words
Sprint 4 – 419 words
Sprint 5 – 167 words
Sprint 6 – 358 words
Sprint 7 – 286 words
Sprint 8 – 357 words

Total – 2,523 words

I wrote a massive portion of the next Love and Other Nightmares chapter. If I were able to do sprints during the power outage for the remaining time I'll be awake – another 8 hours – I'd likely have a total of over 5,000 words... or a little less, assuming my momentum would drop as I neared bedtime... but either way, that's roughly 90% of a typical chapter for this fic. Of course it's all a very, very rough draft, but as I've mentioned elsewhere, focusing on edits as I go along just slows me down and discourages me more than anything. This gets me past the hardest part – starting to write – while accommodating my busy schedule. I'm also no good at sticking to one thing for a long period of time, so this takes a lot of pressure and expectation off of me. It's just five minutes, after all.

Anyway, I'm happy with having tried something new here and I have hope it'll stick. :)

Yes! I finally finished chapter 49 of Marvelous Journey! I even started on the next chapter and did some more writing on a side project I'm working on for fun!

Writing Chapter 3 still, and... it's kinda a doozy so far.
