Just squeaked to my goal today. I don't think I can keep up 3k days much longer.


It's not impossible. You can do it! biggrin
How is your plot? Is it going stale like mine?
It's kind of spinning all over the place. I have no idea what it's doing. lol It's certainly not the story or the characters I started out with.


Oh my eek do you have a definitive main character? sweatdrop
I do, but I don't like him as much as when I started. gonk I've started focusing on his wife more.


I dear... That can't be a good sign. You have to put the reader's focus on the protagonist first before any minor characters.

I think I might try to rework it so his arc is contained in the prologue, and shift the attention to his wife during the first chapter. She's really proving to be more likeable and compelling to me, and I planned to kill the guy off anyway. ninja

That's justs ort of how I saw his story going form the start. He sets off this big change in the world, and he can't reconcile his guilt with it, so eventually he throws himself of a building. sweatdrop I might make it an accident to add to the mystery of the big discovery, though.

This thread is helpful. whee I had writer's block before this!

After skipping about three days of not writing (I had rl distractions >.< ) managed to reach 12630 words today after being stuck at 6331 words for a while. I had to get out my drafts though T^T".
Now I feel like drawing my characters again instead of writing.


I wish I could illustrate my stories sweatdrop


My story was originally a manga idea- but then I wanted to turn it into a light novel~ eventually.

Progress? What's that? Oh, you mean the stuff I'm supposed to be making...

I'm a late starter. As in, an hour ago I wrote my first words down. 756 words in, though. I'm sure it helps that I've been developing this plot for years, hopefully I can power through and catch up to where I should be.

progress, or lack thereof? i actually went backwords. yesterday i had a total of around 500 words and i decided to scrap the story 'cause i just wasn't feeling it.


Did you start a new one?

I need 7500 more to catch up but I had a feeling that I am nearing a road block. Maybe I'll just read somethings again to get my mind working. It's hard to have a nocturnal brain but you have to work during the day. xd

After getting about 4000 words behind because of two rough days, I've finally broken 10k. It's not where I want to be. I really want to be days*2000, so that would be 14k by tonight.

Lol nope.

I also just spent roughly 30 minutes editing my first 6 pages because this is literally my first time writing any fiction since I was 10 and saying I'm rusty is putting it very lightly. It's so much better now, and I came out about 200 words ahead in doing so. Yay!

I've also finally decided why my antagonists are antagonists, and who their two puppets will be.

My story is basically one about Pagans waking up their deities, gaining real powers, Loki and Eris meeting and then them ******** everything up.

It's fun to write! I'm including, slowly, every bit of occult knowledge I have. Which is a lot. It starts off like any fluffy teen novel, but it gets down and dirty with the occult in no time.
