I should write fanfic more often…


I got a lot of writing done this evening! I’m starting Camp NaNoWriMo tomorrow (though I can’t guarantee I’ll entirely focus on Serious Writing), so I wanted to just do something light-hearted and short. And… well, 604 words into a new fanfiction in a new pairing in a new universe, I’m exhausted and calling it a night.

Another slow day


…But slow and steady wins the race, and it’s finally starting to look like I’m winning the editing battle with A Certain Persuasion. Hurrah!

Slow progress


There’s been a lot going on the last few days, with house redecoration and cleaning and things. Still, I’ve managed to get some words written on the rewritten section of my A Certain Persuasion story, so I’m happy enough.

Keeping going…


I’m quite busy at the moment, and I’m also battling low mood and anxiety, but I’m trying to get on with at least a little writing each day. Today it was the rewrites for A Certain Persuasion, which is going pretty well and definitely looks better with the changes already.

A rewrite begins


I will admit that I spent a fair amount of today sleeping and eating chocolate (though not at the same time). However, tonight I managed to rewrite one of three short sections of my submission to A Certain Persuasion, and while I love the scene I just rewrote infinitely more in its current form, I’m a little annoyed about it. You see, there’s a character who briefly appears before their unfortunate death towards the beginning of the story, and this scene is making me get to know – and therefore like – them more. Now I feel guilty and my heart aches. Anyway, the scene could use a bit more work, I think, but until I sort out the other two parts I won’t know quite what needs changing in the first one.

Edit Day!


I got my editing orders through for my A Certain Persuasion story, so I mostly just whizzed through and did the minor corrections on that. I do have a more major bit to rewrite, so that’s the plan for tomorrow. I think it looks better than it did already, though, so that’s a good feeling.

Talk to you tomorrow (barring distractions)!

Not what I’d hoped…


I knocked out about a thousand words of Father Didn’t Dance earlier, and don’t get me wrong, I’m really proud of that. I’d hoped to get a few hundred more done later on, but my day turned a bit sour so now I’m going to play endless high-speed games of 2048 and Tetris until my feelings go away. And eat loads of biscuits.

Don’t worry, everything’s OK, but it’s really annoying when somebody can’t respect your wishes, especially when they come at you through work. I’ll get over it, I’m just not in a writing mood now.
