  • Ah, feels so good making up for missed chapters ~ If I continue at this pace, I might actually manage to write all of them in a week or two! :blob_aww:

    I'm eagerly waiting for that cycle to repeat in a few months. The cycle of you being behind the schedule and catching up to it. The one that reminds me, every time, how little I write compared to you.

    Me too, @Nahrenne, it's been months since I've really had any motivation but it's been slightly looking up this week! :blob_aww:
    @SailusGebel, I sure hope it won't because that would mean I really got depression :blob_blank: I'll gladly remind you myself if you need it :blobrofl:
    Spent time writing chapters for a story I'm not even posting yet and made a cover for it. Yeah, I see why I'm behind my editing schedule all the time ... It was fun though :sweat_smile:
    Okay, I guess it's time to officially panic now. 41k words to go until the end of the month with no focus or motivation to speak of. Thank you very much, depression, that was really what I needed to feel better :blob_unamused:
    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 :blob_teary: Or in other words: My backlog is still 12 chapters long, they just happen to all be of the same project now :blob_pout:

    Ah, yeah, that makes sense then! I'd have to love those but I can't even catch up to the schedule in a short time. Would love to finally have some extra stuff ready though. Next month is another anniversary and I haven't prepared anything yet :blob_teary:

    I had written a few themed chapters around anniversaries and holidays but most were either lost or I forgot to post them during the holiday or anniversary so it went at the end of the arc so don't feel bad about that.

    Ah, I guess that's a good idea as well! The next volume should end soon anyway so I guess it might fit in there quite well ... Thanks for the suggestion! :blob_aww:
    Managed to hit my word count goal last month but at what cost? :sweating_profusely: 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 :blob_teary:
    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 :blob_ghost: 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 ... :sweating_profusely:

    Hope you manage to do it while taking care of yourself, Yansusu!
    I feel like I haven't seen you in ages.

    Thanks, Nahrenne! And that feeling is probably right. I've had a really, really bad year. I'll already be happy if I get out of this without developing depression. Being online makes it worse so I'm staying away unless I gotta vent about the small annoyances that pile on :blob_cringe:

    Sorry to hear you've had a really bad year.

    If you pay for the Amazon Prime subscription, you get the great opportunity to borrow movies from the shop for just a dollar. How awesome! I mean, it's not like I'm already paying for the subscription or anything ...

    With the acquisition of MGM Media... Amazon Prime's variety is getting more bigger and bigger.

    Truth be told, I'm having immense trouble finding good stuff on Amazon Prime but I guess that's more of the fault of the awful search system I guess than the variety they offer in general. Hard to say though.
    @BenJepheneT, I don't pirate if there's an easy and legal way to get stuff. I'm a creative myself so I feel I should do my part to honor the work of other creatives.
    There is always that one person in a writing group that when you ask about x, they'll start advising you on y with y being irrelevant, having a reason outside the shared information, or being a deliberate decision. Oftentimes, y is based solely on their experience/opinion.
    Just thought of that today when I randomly remembered the guy who complained about my FL accusingly staring at spilled coffee :blob_blank:
    Ah, choosing names is so hard ... Can I really pair a three-syllable name with a two-syllable name and not have readers hate me? But then, if the character's spouse only has a two-syllable name, it doesn't seem too bad? :blob_hmm:

    Ha, I love the second method! :blobrofl: Seriously though, I have a name in mind. I'm just debating whether I should use it or if readers will flip tables on me because it's too long. I feel like they hate long names :blob_hmm: But then, I like the name so I should just go for it ...

    If it’s long you can refer to them by a shortened version of the name Christopher to Chris and such.

    You can. I allow you.
    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 ... :blob_blank:

    I'm actually still pretty clear on the original idea. I just suck at that type :blob_teary: I'm first and foremost a romance writer even though I tend to have convoluted plots in the back of it. But my first story was more about the big picture with some romance so it turned out shit no matter the version :blob_teary:

    @yansusustories I'm starting to regret studying and acquiring a license to practice law. But yeah, like what I experienced, if no one's gonna stand up, then who will?

    Ah, in any case, nice chatting with ya!

    I can imagine that. When you start out, it's difficult to imagine how bad things can get, and then sometimes you get blindsided. But in the end, we all had our reasons for starting so it's not like we can give up so we have to find a way to deal with it.

    Yeah, I think so too! :blob_melt: I'm not often on the forums anymore, just on the main site, so not many chances to chat. It's better for mental health though, lol
    Ah, it's one of those "Can I even write? :blob_teary:" days again ... *sigh*
    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 ... :blob_blank: Ah, why is February so early in the year?! :blob_catflip:
    Apparently, there is a state where you can be too depressed to upload even finished chapters on time but still not too depressed for your brain to throw new story ideas at you ...

    I am feeling this at this moment. Only, I'm not depressed anymore because I am high.

    It is called finals week angst for college kids.
    I usually hate reading MTL but I have to admit that sometimes it adds some hilarity to the reading experience :blobrofl:

    It rots my brain, burns my soul. But the impatient me is too lazy to learn the language and too unwilling to wait for someone to translate it. So instead of whining like the masses, I just read it, comprehend what it means to eat grass on one's mother or how a king has 8 eggs.

    I read BL only so the king with the 8 eggs has me somewhat doubtful :blobrofl: And sheesh, I actually am learning Chinese but I'm lightyears away from actually being able to understand a novel :blob_teary:
    I guess some people just are hypocrites without seeing it themselves. Or maybe the point is not seeing it themselves ... :blob_hmm:
