3,360 / 12,250
it’s now day, uhm… 5.
things are going quite well. i missed saturday because of busy-ness in that ‘real life’ stuff, so one of my free passes has been used already.
regardless of that, i’ve managed to actually write about 500 words per day instead of 250. still have to type everything up to see what my real word count is (i’m slowly filling a notebook with longhand scribbles).
in all that i’ve managed to come up with about four new story ideas, a few of which i’ll be fleshing out and editing once i get them into the computer.
this feels really, really good.

my muse has been stuck in the mud quite long enough. nano is looming and my brain feels like mush. not a good thing.
so what to do? a new little challenge, of course!
the goal: 250 words or a new story idea per day from now until nano starts
the rules: 250 words each day. a new story idea counts as 250 words so long as it gets a bit of fleshing out. there are 5 free passes (days when i can skip).
ready. set. write!
i'm going to continue to plug along and update my little number counter thing as i get something, but there is no way in hell i'm gonna make the goal. i keep trying this every couple of months and seem to keep ending up with around 15k before i realize that i'm still not ready to write this saga i'm carrying in my head.
so, i'm back to tearing the world apart again and rebuilding from the ground up. something in me knows i'm going to have to keep doing this, because everytime i dive back in, the story still works at its core, no matter how much i've changed the world it's set in. i've somehow set up a very adaptable story. i think i'll know when i've truly got the worldbuilding sussed out when the story starts to sing in tune with the world.
meh. anyway, i'm still here, still plugging away.
in closing, i'll leave you with a quote that is short, sweet and to the point:
"Never, never, never quit." - Winston Churchill
Happy writing! :)
Happy writing, ladies!
Have a great weekend, ladies, and may your muses cooperate! (I know mine has taken a page from Layren's muse's book; she's locked herself in the closet and flat-out refuses to come out. Getting words out of me right now is like pulling teeth... *sighs* Guess it's a good thing I did all that writing last week!)
