70 words in Aerosteel, which I'm pausing until I figure out when to do the amusement park stuff... There's a lot of availability in the upcoming holiday week, but it's likely that the park will be quite busy because of it... and after that, I only have four weekends before the rainy season begins (the weather's generally humid, maybe hot, but sometimes the rain is a bit unpredictable). I was going to work on Uncoloured today, but distractions and me getting drowsy fairly early.

Managed to get the next chapter of Chaos Rising (Pirate Panic) done this morning. It's short, only about 10 pages, but it didn't have a whole lot of content to begin with, as its plot was pretty straight-forward.

Anyway, Celtic and his party learn of Jerry's (Bow Hero) latest mess. Apparently he took down a pirate ship that was near (but not bothering) a port town, sinking and, most likely looting it, though there was no one on board at the time. This angered the pirates, who were a pack of unusually intelligent monsters calling themselves the Surge Raiders, prompting them to summon the other ships in their arsenals and attacking the port town, accusing them of siccing the Bow Hero on them (which they didn't, as they didn't even know Jerry was anywhere near there when it happened). They ended up enslaving the town and wrecking it. A Shadow Sentinel took Celtic and his party to it, as it would take too long by foot to reach it in time, in order to liberate the town from the monster pirates. Using a combination of traps, stealth, and strategy, Celtic and his party pretty much crushed the pirates, including their Salamander captain, with the Cobra Hydra Shroud debuting its poison's potency. Because the town is in an advanced state of disrepair, Celtic decides to take some of the pirates' plunders as his payment instead, allowing the town to take the rest to help rebuild, something that the grateful townsfolk appreciated.

The next chapter, "Frigid Femme Fatale", will have the party dealing with Eric the Axe Hero's latest mess. Sheesh, can't those Legendary Stooges do anything right??? Is it any wonder Celtic feels like a glorified janitor to them (and why he always has a choice remark or two for them).

Nothing yesterday, mood too offset to write. Only notes for today for some stuff I thought of last night or this morning or something... Relatively distracted writing a programme that'll automate one of those ideas even though it'd be much faster to manually iterate through it.

Tom Nook let me go for a bit so I can write.

Been working on a short story for class, and wrote about 258 words for it. I'm not quite sure where I want to go with the piece, as I'm still exploring the narrator's background and her mind, but I'm going to be spending a lot of time on this piece so I'll be able to figure it out. Looking forward to writing, and rewriting this many times.

Working steadily on chapter 64 if MarJour. Just need to finish three scenes, and I'll be done with it.

282 words today in Uncoloured getting Tsuguo through the rest of her first week of school at the new location. It took a while to finish the aforementioned programme, but I got it working and (seemingly) bug-free, as well as the results I was needing. Added and rearranged some notes as well. Took a break and also listened to an artist's rant-ish thing about procrastination, either or both of which helped me get back to writing. I've been debating a bit to catch Uncoloured up to Aerosteel and go back to working on Electrowood since I figured out some scenes to insert (in Electrowood), and see what I can do to get it close to the end (or act end) since there's only one possible crossover scene planned.

359 new words in Uncoloured, excluding the word change of the last half of the last sentence from yesterday. Tsuguo got all the chocolates, melted them, etc and is now at school on Valentine's Day. I've a rough idea of the upcoming scene, but I definitely wasn't going to be able to start on it today.

139 words getting through said scene, which ended up being much different than I was thinking (rather the beginning portion of it). Just need Tsuguo to give out the remainder of the chocolates, through school, giving the last set of chocolates, and then I'm probably going to skip to a couple notes in my timeline before the hanami (flower viewing) stuff which i have vague ideas about.

Last couple days netted nothing since I had distractions of some sort (or I was unmotivated, whichever), but at least did a bit of planning/thinking.

A fight scene for the next chapter of my fic. It's a first draft but I'm pleased enough with it. 657 words for that scene, though I wrote some more (uncounted) as well.

@Stalungrad The single best thing you can do for your writing is to write, no matter the quality! Proficiency comes with practice, mate.

101 words and some tweaking. Done with the chocolates now, so I just need to narrate through a couple things and figure out hanami stuff.

467 words today and some editing for this short story. I finally have a clearer idea of what I want to do with this piece. The editing work went a lot better than I thought it would too, as I have finally found a good method for it.

I also did about 1000 words for a random writing prompt I found at like, 2 am this morning. It had been a couple of weeks since I had worked on anything personal but I am struggling with ideas for personal projects, so I just found a writing prompt and stuck a few of my characters in the scene.

253 words getting to the thing before hanami, which I forgot was actually going to be something I wasn't going to narrate past - gives me more time to figure out hanami though.

251 words in Uncoloured getting past the scene, meaning I gotta figure out the hanami stuff. I realised I missed a detail when doing the hanami for Electrowood, so I either gotta figure out how to roll with it or fix it.

Scribbled 1500 words for a possible scene about the origins of the PWT of Journeys in the Anime verse, namely with Ash and three other Indigo competitors being randomly brought in for sample feedback.

Ash asked about location issue and badge question compatability, The Hiker from Bulbasaur's Hidden Garden asked about unfair grinding (based on my own joke about Ash possibly raising his rank by forcing Goh to join the PWT and battling him every day for easy wins), Fergus asked about people using locations to create unfair conditions (either challenging a specialist in water-types far away from water, or him challenging people to battle him in the middle of a Lagoon while atop his Gyarados) and Ritchie asked if he could turn off challenge reception for times when say, he'd rather just be having breakfast with his mom and not want to be interrupted for random battle requests.
