    Today I learned how fly fishing works and that willow is one of the most useful trees around. I already knew how to clean a fish, but I also learned a lot about brown trout. Yay research :D

    It doesn't have to be! Lots of people do things that aren't novels.

    I'm terrible at nano, but I'm HellfireLover there too. I've not written much this past few years for Reasons, but my prompt from the novel generator was just stupid enough to pique my interest (with a few tweaks), so I'm writing it.

    I'm probably gonna do something. Probably a bit from Anhelia's time alive in the war.

    Roadblock the first: Group A and Group B are supposed to become Group AB. Group B has realized they have no reason at all to help Group A, and their paths go in opposite fuckign directions.

    I'm good at this pantsing thing

    My goal this year is strictly word count. I've got two characters, half a world built, and a chest cold.

    I cheated a little, starting on the 30th for 1500 words, because I needed to get myself in the flow. End total today was 3300~ish.

    Strategy: just fling the words. Just throw them. Are they the right words? Unlikely. It's the sloppiest rough draft I've probably ever put out for anything, but I'd rather have too much and trim the fat later imo. I've got a lot of barely coherent chaos I'm going to be doctoring in December.

    strictly quadrilateral alive, alive, alive!

    Same tho. I had about 6000 words already written, and since this is the only story I feel up to writing, I'm just going to see if I can make it well past 50,000 to make up for it. And if I can't, who cares? I'll still have written as much as i could.

    Lambda everything happens so much

    I'm trying not to feel really inadequate when seeing how much other people have written so far :x my words have been limping along
    but I'm also doing edits, not just a rough draft, so I'm trying to give myself a little more credit

    strictly quadrilateral alive, alive, alive!

    to be entirely fair i wrote probably around 3500 words around may and then chipped away at it until now. it was not a planned headstart, it just happened this way.

    I kinda wanna do nano, but between work and not having really written anything since high school, like, 6 years or so ago... Idk. I've had a few dozen random ideas that could be crunched into a setting with enough phlebotinum. I just don't think i'd be able to write over 5k words, but maybe i'm underestimating myself.

    Went to a write-in at a bookstore tonight, knocked out 1007 words. It was kind of nice - I think there were 8 people there ignoring each other and typing furiously and the bookstore owner supplied coffee. I worked it out and if I can manage 800 words on weekdays and 4000 on weekend days, I'll make it. That's more realistic for me than trying to do the same amount every day.

    What I'm doing is that I'm taking my character Anhelia and her setting but winding back 25 years and telling the stories of the war.

    For now I'm going to use some kind of storytelling framing story because some things I don't quite know where they fit.

    This collection will conclude with Anhelia recounting how she died, a feat few have accomplished.

    Today my magical lesbians kissed and snuggled in the rain, under an ancient willow tree.
