The problem with making up for a backlog is that each day, two or three new chapters need to be written and edited as well. The risk of the backlog getting bigger is so huge Or in other words: My backlog is still 12 chapters long, they just happen to all be of the same project now
Managed to hit my word count goal last month but at what cost? Now, there are 12 chapters left to edit which roughly comes up to 15k words and they all read like MTL thanks to speech-to-text screwing me over
That moment when you check your word count and realize you have to write 7k words each day until the end of the month to still make your goal It'd be easier if I didn't still have other work to do and wasn't feeling like shit but I guess I can only try to write as much as I can today ...

That dread when you find a half-written chapter that is part of an arc you finished and suddenly aren't sure anymore if you ever had that part in there and this is just the dregs or completely forgot about it ...
The new year has started and I can't help but begin with the big questions, like: Can I write half a novel in a day? Because I kind of feel like I might need to ... Ah, why is February so early in the year?!
