    Morven In darkness be the sound and light

    I have now actually started and at am just over 300 words. It's a start. Intending to get much more done this weekend. Right now, the tale of Captain Aescar's 1st Squadron, 83rd Heavy Armored Regiment, and their last stand attempting to hold the village of Alfsyn Hegar against an overwhelming assault. This will be Captain Aescar's last battle in Pale Mother Death and the engagement that cements her war-hero reputation at home, thanks to talented propaganda spinning. It's her second tank loss and second losing a substantial portion of the crew, and the cracks in her sanity should be showing by the end.

    Didn't manage to write anything before midnight, going to try an make up the difference tomorrow if I'm not in too much pain. Determined not to get down on myself about missing one day.

    Missed a few days but my average is decent on the days I wrote anything at all, so I'm calling my progress good.

    high five!

    I've figured out that what works for me is writing whatever scene I feel like at the moment. Editing for continuity is going to be hell because I'm jumping around so much, but I'm making steady forward progress.

    I didn't manage to write anything yesterday and I'm not sure if today'll be any better because of election anxiety. But that being said, I'm really happy with the progress I've made (about 6k). It's not quite the Nano pace, but it's a hell of a lot better than I usually manage!

    So here's to one week guys!:toot:

    stories of hope and love are more important than ever. I'm going to finish my magical lesbian story and put it out in the world.

    Yeah, didn't get any writing done last night for obvious reasons, but I'm going to crush it tonight.

    so I realized a couple of days ago that writing a novel about a dystopia was perhaps not the most mentally healthy choice (woops.) I'm officially giving myself permission to shelve that project, although I may still try to keep writing something else.

    I'm two days behind, three if I don't get my shit together today. Besides the obvious reasons, I just feel a little... idk. Lonely? I want to show this off and have fun while I do it. Part of me is like "No, you idiot, if you post it as you go you can't sell it and if you don't sell what you write you're never going to earn any money" but what's the likelyhood of anyone buying a book about a hermaphroditic faery creature who goes on a roadtrip and ends up in poly relationship with two men?

    idk, idk. :(

    We should have a thread specifically for that. Support. I'd buy that.
    I also want to share my magical lesbians and talk about why I love them, and am having similar thoughts, but if we post it in a private part of the forum, maybe?

    A Top Serket thread for spamming that sweet validation button sharing snippets as we go? If anyone has a sassy title I'm game, I am also twoish days behind now cos yesterday ate my buffer.
