A solid end to the month


Today has been another day of being tired – maybe I’m coming down with something – but I did get my thousand words done for the day. Considering how many days I spent not writing, this month, I’m pretty pleased with the total I finished up with.

And tomorrow is August, so I’m free to edit the original Bowler Hat story – but I might finish up the sequel first. We’ll see.

Total written today: 1062 words.

July total: 26017 words.

2015 total so far: 182469 words.

Not my day


Oh, man. Today has been… everything that could go wrong, did, and I ended up curling up under my duvet for a sleep to make some of the day just go away. I didn’t think I’d be writing today, to be honest, I was in such a terrible mood, but then at about ten o’clock tonight I decided I’d give it a go. Bowler Hat sequel again, I’m afraid. I was tempted to go for 1500 words, but then I hit the end of a paragraph, with a clear next step, and decided to end it there since it was ten to midnight…

No idea how that happened


I have no idea how it happened, but I wrote 5000 words of the Bowler Hat sequel today. And I’m pretty happy about that. It was about a chapter and a half, too, so that’s good progress. Phew! That… was a lot of words. It’s the first 5k day I’ve had in 2015, I believe. I’m proud of myself!

Total written today: 5180 words.

July total so far: 23574 words.

2015 total so far: 180026 words.

Wow. 180k this year so far! I was excited about the 175k mark approaching, but I guess I kind of sped past that…

A little under count


Today I’ve been pretty tired, so I’m calling it a night now (11pm) and haven’t quite reached my word count. I did, however, reach the end of Chapter 3 of the Bowler Hat Sequel, so it’s a fair place to leave it. I also made some visual references/trait guides (see this tutorial) for five new characters who’ll be popping up soon.

Back to Caladria…


…But I’ve still got a huge mental block on it, for some reason. So I got about 250 words on that done, then reverted to the Bowler Hat sequel and got… well, I got pretty carried away. Oops!

Not bad going


I had another rough start to the day, but I managed to get a bit of writing done nonetheless. Bowler Hat sequel again, I’m afraid, because I’m a terrible person when it comes to deadlines, but I will get some Caladria done tomorrow.

A bad day


Today I had a bit of a bad spell and had to go and sleep for a while, so I didn’t get as much done as I’d hoped. Just a little bit of the Bowler Hat sequel. Still, it’s better than nothing.
