Wrote ~400 words to finish this chapter of Love and Other Nightmares! Already had my beta comment on everything except those 400 words and made edits accordingly, so it should be up today or tomorrow. I'm glad to have it done since I've been stuck on this last scene for weeks. ^^;

Well I just wrote a few thousand words that included at the end a version of the tigger song about female beauty.

My solution to losing progress to saving shenanigans: save and edit my chapters directly from a directory in my dropbox. So far it hasn't bitten me, though I imagine it's only a matter of time.

Myself? Planned out some very extensive notes for Chapter 31 of Land of the Roses. While it's not next, it's a big and important chapter, so I'm trying to go all out on it; I'm taking experiences I've had from three recent nature hikes into account here, hoping it all pays off.

Well, I solved a worldbuilding problem to do with silk. Also did some preliminary notes for a bit of description coming up in the next paragraph

Managed to get over 9000 words written yesterday...all for one chapter. Yeesh. Most of the time I barely go above 6000 words total. I'm considering splitting it into two chapters, but considering that I'm making this the climax...I don't know. I can look into restructuring my plot outline again, as there is one chapter I think could be combined into another. We'll see how it goes.

Worked a little bit on both MarJour chapter 47 and a little bit on this one Harvest Moon oneshot I'm close to finishing up. Don't really feel too motivated to work on either of them too much, though.

Somehow managed to bash out about thirty words, thanks to being bizarrely blocked on the subject. A lot of work-related matters competing for attention certainly doesn't help

300 words, which will need heavy editing. I just wanted to get something out there.

150 words. Not a lot but reflected on how I wanna end the scene I'm on, too. As per usual when I wanna end scenes, seems I wanna cover a lot in a very small amount of space. :p

Anabel stopped a Z-Move mid attack before she listened to the music of a man whose first life was murdered by the infamous 20 Gyarados Bill

Added a chapter in Seafaring Travels that kind of answers a question a few people were wondering about from earlier in the fanfic series.

Otherwise the Manaphy plot is intended to be cute and heart string pulling once he develops more.

I've been readjusting the summaries of the first few chapters, particularly cutting away filler material such as characters eating, travelling, shopping and going to bed. Such fluff does not forward the story and therefore must be omitted. I've also split a chapter to spread the amount of revelations. The results are stronger chapters.

I heavily edited and extended the first chapter of my rebooted fanfic. Added about 500w to the total wordcount, now about 2000. Still more to do tomorrow before it's ready, but I'm itching to publish. I haven't been this excited about my writing in six years. ;P

Been working quite a bit on what will be Chapter 18 of PMDUE. I unfortunately had another upload hiccup just yesterday, and lost a good chunk of my progress. From here on, I'll be making a back-up whenever my cloud save (Onedrive) has a sycing error. That should hopefully prevent it.

Made another chapter of Seafaring Travels today.

Not much, but for the Post Sun and Moon series... it offers some world building in regards to what happened with Lillie during her adventures in Kanto. (Since I skipped that adventure!)

She obtained her Bulbasaur almost exactly like how the player got her starter in the Hoenn games... with a mix of Oaks granddaughter being the one to head to Cerulean City like how Bianca came to give you the player your starter from BW2.

That and a certain idiot trainer (Elio/ Sun) MAY have let Oak figure out the new trainer by accident.

I've been forgetting to post here, since I'm not writing fanfic... Have written 5 pages each for the last three days on a research paper relating to animal/comparative psychology. : ' ) Almost done, then I can return to my lovely stress-free fanfics.
