@Ewok Poet: By March? If anybody is capable of that and it's not a bunch of short things, I would love to hear more about it. I was thinking it would be more like having a complete rough draft by March (and with a 30,000ish word piece, that wouldn't be too difficult--I think I could even manage it, if I didn't write a word on anything else), and revising as you post throughout the year. Both of my diaries probably have far too many characters. That's the biggest issue my thesis committee, all of them, had with my master's thesis, so it's usually not a hill I want to die on--but this is strictly amateur writing, so I just let the character lists be as random as life oftentimes is. And gosh, I am only three entries into your 2016 diary, @Pandora - not proud! That's all right. I'll probably finish that diary in 2025 (and have the next post up in, like, 2019) so you have plenty of time to catch up.
