150 words in Electrowood... I think it's a pretty good start for getting back into writing from SwSh-ing for so many days and having some distractions. Pretty much lunch is ready now after cooking and such...
Wrote a pretty good chunk of segment 3 part 2’s lore/backstory yesterday, along with making the somewhat-executive decision to insert paragraphs detailing the present in between them. Hopefully I’ll get the backstory part finished up by today.
Also, a lil’ update on my current Shield progress: somehow managed to reach the finals within four days, now all I have to do is smack Allister and Raihan and Rose and Eternatus and Leon to beat the game. Shouldn’t be too hard to do in one night.
Also, for anyone attempting a nuzlocke of this game: I pray for you if you plan on having a Snom/Frosmoth on your team. Its twin strong STAB in Bug Buzz and Blizzard/Aurora Beam are possibly the only good moves you can get if you’re stuck without proper TRs, and its type isn’t really the best at defense...you’re gonna get walled and rekt so hard by all the Steel/Rock/Fire/Water type users even if you over level. And that speed is not the best. Seriously, good luck making K-Mart Volcarona survive the entire game. Do you know how many times my own Frosmoth has fainted now? God, I miss Freeze-Dry.
Yesterday now, not much more than noodling around with 100 words or so of The Long Walk, but I did have a bit of a breakthrough with Kanto: There and Back Again on the content-building stage of the next chapter
267 words in Electrowood. Had a bit of trouble starting off, but finally figured something out that I liked and wasn't awkward. Also changed another character's name to make it easier on myself. There was also some tweaking here and there too.
36 words besides the tweaking I did. Been having a bit of trouble writing the day, but now that I think about it, I think it took me at least a few days to write the first day of puzzles... Hope tomorrow ends up a little more fruitful.
About 200 words of Chapter Thirty Three, 150 of which will have to be considered finished for now. It's still not quite what I was after but ... well, I think writing is partly about letting the words take you places you didn't expect, so I'm inclined to accept it
