monkey, I hope your month went well.

Mine was the most productive yet, and I can't wait to dive into editing. Whoop!

Oh, that's great!

I think I got into it pretty late, but I managed to reach my goal. At about 11-thousand words, I managed to finish the first part of my project. About five minutes ago.

Just the push I needed to write the rest. :U

In spite of previous attempts, some from many years ago, I'm still very new at this.

That said, after the struggle I went through to hammer out the 11k or so words last month, I'm finding it easier to write everything after it.

It could be that I'm essentially rewriting some of what I mentioned writing years ago, but even when I had an idea of what I wanted to write, it always seemed to be stuck. Couldn't really just...drop it onto the page, y'know?

I dunno, but I do remember how it inspired me to create through other means, and I love it. :v

That’s awesome. I love it when after a struggle things suddenly make more sense.

This year I saved some scenes that I have been itching to write for the end of the month. It worked very well to do the harder stuff first and make those decisions early. Then the rest flowed from it. (I write out of order, sometimes a lot out of order.)

Anyone else get annoyed when we have all sorts of ideas and stories in our heads but can just get it out there?

I have made a rough draft of a story I wanted to write about a young peasant girl living in the times of witch persecutions by Stendarr’s faithful but I’m just too lazy to get it on here.

That and I’m in desperate need of a new computer tongue.gif

And yet I am, and live—like vapours tossed.
I long for scenes where man hath never trod
A place where woman never smiled or wept
There to abide with my Creator, God,
And sleep as I in childhood sweetly slept,
Untroubling and untroubled where I lie
The grass below—above the vaulted sky.”

And yeah, I feel you on that first part.


I was actually thinking of joining NNWM this month for the first time, see what’s all the fuss you guys are getting sweaty for yearly, but after a measly 2.K word count I gave up. Not my tea, tbh. All the best for all of you who joined tho.

She said I'm insane, yeah
I might blow my brains out
Xanny numb the pain, yeah
Please, Xanny make it go away
I'm committed, not addicted, but it keep controlling me
All that pain, now I can't feel it, I swear that it's slowing me

Yep. I have a Scrivener project that’s just story ideas. That way I can jot down the shiny new whatever and know that it will be there when I come back to it.

I hear you about the new computer. My old laptop just died. I have a friend who swears by google docs, though. She uses that for all of her writing.


Uleni, I’m glad you tried it!

Well, thanks for the offer my friend. I bought a new laptop today lol.

I'm doing great, just been working on other projects so I haven't had the time to visit the forums often. But now I've made more time. I don't think I'll do the NNWM but I'm entertaining the idea.

Ohh that sounds like a reliable tool. I see where your imagination comes from in a way smile.gif

Hmm, I'm more of a word doc person lol. But like I mentioned, I finally got that done and now I can write again. Eventually . . . procrastination plays a role here too. mellow.gif

So I realize it's been MONTHS since the deadline but while I haven't really reached the 50k mark, I DID reach my original goal before I cut it down. (It's at around 40k words now. The word count might either go up or down when editing, tbh)

I've been writing on and off, and I get the feeling that part of why it took me so long to get to this point was that I just really HAVE to write in a linear fashion. I've been getting out of the habit recently, but like, I feel like I end up repeating myself too much if I don't?

Granted, the point of the first draft is for it to exist, so I guess that doesn't matter. I've reached the point where I had a solid plan for the story so maybe I'll experiment from here on out.

Couldn’t help but notice that in your screenie of the month Jerric is riding up to the Honeymoon Cottage. You know you are always welcome to Argis and Alise’s home, but please don’t forget to knock! Or Jerric just might see things involving whips and chains and dog collars … ::0:
