The nice thing about being unable to properly count is that sometimes, you surprise yourself. On that note: Only two more chapters for me to finally catch up to all of my releases! (Still 20k words behind this month's word count goal though )
Personal pet peeve of mine: Readers (especially those who dabble in writing) saying something like "no effort was put into this story". Even if they think it is shit (and they could do better), that doesn't mean the author wasn't slaving away for dozens of hours. The perceived quality doesn't directly translate to the effort put into a creative work. It's a pity I see this sentiment around so often on the forums.
Out of the last six days, five were good. The one that wasn't involved a doctor's visit. Are to-do lists really this magical? Guess I should have tried them out sooner ... Anyway, onto the next chapters! I still gotta do at least two today and I am ambitiously aiming for three
Had a dream tonight in which a scale showed me that I pretty much doubled my weight. Stepped onto my actual scale highly concerned after waking up ... only to find out I weigh pretty much the same as before. I could still stand to lose a kg or two but I guess that's not as immediately needed as I thought
I'm flooded by work but I really want to start another playthrough of Skyrim (not that I ever finished a single one ...) and mod the shit out of it to the point where I can hardly recognize the thing. Ah, it's hard to be a responsible human being
Just saw the thread about reviews and had to sigh. Over 2 accounts, I have 24 stories (16 completed), but 12 reviews (11 on my 1st, 1 on my 2nd), 7 by one person. I'm not sure if it's the genre (but the 2nd account has het and GL without reviews too) or I'm too bad an author to elicit engagement but it's one of the reasons I'm unmotivated to post.
Anyway, I'll go and write the next chapter for the 2nd account now ...
You know, sometimes I wish authors had the guts to make their main characters in a romance story downright assholes instead of trying to paint them as good guys by making the other love interest have some serious issue.
