What article or story were you writing today?
Not much, I'm afraid. I've done about 700 words of outlining for my Fantasy epic, under the working title Memories of Eden. I have discovery-written 200k, maybe 300k words on it over the last several years. It's quite a mess, and much too unwieldy for me to keep writing in that fashion, so now I'm laying down the basic structure. Better late than never, yes?
What I wrote? A bunch of administrative papers. Some paperwork for Centrelink (those in Australia will now proceed to sigh or roll their eyes. They know exactly the pain that centrelink is).
In terms of my story. Absolutely nothing. It is painful to say that since this has been my last semester of university (officially), I have beens swamped and writing has taken a backseat approach for about 13 weeks now. But it should all be changing in a few days.
About 4k translated words of Peter Watts' Maelstrom sci-fi book. 41k words left to finish it!
I think I might publish it in Nov, 20th.
I'm hooked with the story. No way I can't even guess what's going to happen next.
I wrote a couple of paragraphs of my self-fanfiction story. It's a bit weird in that I want the reader to know what the MC looks like, because he's unusual-looking, but there are no mirrors around, and so far he's all by himself, so nobody else is around to describe him. I guess it's infodump time.
An excel spreadsheet that calculates a rate stat of steaks sold per number of diners. Does that count?
C'mon! You can do it! There's gotta be a poodle of water somewhere... ?
Worked on my first novel for an hour or two.
Redacted all the sex out of my story, for those who fear being caught reading smut!
Wrote about 1000 words on my novel. I'm beginning to wonder if this is a better story than I am a writer. I'm still in the first draft stage, and I tell myself it's supposed to be at least a LITTLE awful, but DAMN!
What about those of us who fear there isn't enough smut in the world? Too much pornography, sure. But never enough smut, you know the stuff that inhabits the gray area between fiction and porn?
I know it's a Big gray area, there are at least 50 different shades.
It's just white font. * shrug* Click the link, and Gohd help you!
Owe... go on.
I must be a real data nerd to be interested in the results. LOL
It's not much. I have a main WIP on the go. I'm a fan of it. I especially think one of the characters would make a kind of cool superhero, if he only had powers. So I decided to write a little side-story about him - a self-fanfic, if you will - in which this character is a superhero. It's silly, and has nothing to do with my main WIP other than a super-powered version of one of the characters, but it's getting me out of a writing slump and is loads of fun to write.
A self-Fanfic... I like, I think my current NaNoWriMo is a bit of a self-Fanfic with all my Main-MCs in it... along with some side characters.
Started writing a scene about my MC, and her dad, discussing her mom's upcoming funeral, absent of any supernatural drama or subtext to distract from the reality of it.
Should be some lighthearted fun /s.
Slowly making progress on finishing a version of my first chapter, been delayed by some editing and planning stuff. Also started on my second chapter yesterday which I'm slowly writing the first scene for. I'll have some days available now I'm finished my uni semester to do more some devoted productive writing days.
Crazy Shit is what I wrote today. ... Crazy Shit... Nothing like a Mech Battle against Giant "Something" in the middle of a city. My mechs are inspired by Battle Tech and Front Mission.
I wrote a creepy, cringy message to this girl I met on a dating site and then I wrote the last few paragraphs of my short story La Tarasantica Mionettia, a story detailing the brutal death of a gypsy woman in Caspe.
Can I ask: why did you write if that's what you think of it?
Are you that desperate?
She wanted me to. She told me to impersonate Frilo Guapo in Catholicism but I feel like I got carried away.
Well good luck with all that!
Wrote a short essay on the origins of the Native American Pow-wow for my music class.
I did not know “Pow-wow” was even a thing..... what is it? *proceeding to googling it*
As for me, I have just finished the paperwork for me ending my job, moving on to a brighter future.... hopefully maybe.... but I still have not written anything for my story...
