    1,023. It isn't much, but I'm surprised that I got that much in, to be honest.

    The list has been updated. Please remember to bold your counts in your posts so I can easily see them when I am skimming.

    I'm currently up to 753. Though I am hoping to get more done today after some "research" (aka reading comics) for my newest plot bunny.

    2,502 words until now. These are 2,502 words that have been rewritten to death, so the real total is probably more like 10,000, but my word processor doesn't keep track of deleted words [face_dunno]

    The creative well has run dry for tonight, leaving me on 2155.

    I am going leave out RP posts for the time being, I think. If I need to make up numbers towards the end to get to colours, I will bring them in.

    452 words.

    I managed a handful of handwritten words today, and counted them to bring that stunning total out in public.

    List has been updated.

    My life has just been oddly crazy and I haven't gotten anything written. I have Darth Real Life to deal with for the next 2 days, but my aim is to start TRYING Sunday.

    The quote "Life has many ways of testing a person's will, either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen all at once" basically just rules my life (I should have know complaining about having nothing to do would bring this about).

    I'm doubtful that what I wrote today will ever see the light of day, but if it ever does, I'm up to 1126.

    Dear muse: you really suck right now.

    Seeing how everybody else appears to be stuck at one point or another, I'm almost ashamed to report that I may need somebody or something to stop me from writing, so I could do some actual, paid work. [face_blush]

    I churned 22 707 words in less than two weeks and I wonder if it's a mania or something. I guess my stress from what happened last week did it. Most of this, about 20K is my DDC, which I said I would get out of the way, the rest of it is mostly footnotes.

    Briannakin, I used two of your picture prompts and one of your word prompts in a September entry and I will let you know once that's up. The word prompt helped me create a religion for an entire planet and it's actually cooler than the religion I created for another planet last month and I cannot thank you enough for this! :) I wish I could motivate your muse or something!

    I somehow squeezed in a couple of words for the second fanon challenge, which is funny, given that I am yet to finish the response to the first.

    With three award fics I need to work on, two award graphics and a stories that have not been updated forquite a long time, I seriously hope that this DDC mania will pas me and then I can focus on the things that are harder to write.

    tl;dr: I wish I was more disciplined.

    Wow...so after my stunning lack of motivation, I forced myself to work on a different short story instead of my main fic and somehow wrote 1170 words in two days. New total 2259. Still not outstanding, but improving.

    All right, 968! Woo-hoo! And now 1226! This story is getting written! :D

    Now, I have no business being so excited about such a meager total when there are people here who are well into the four- and five-digit realms. But the fact is, I too have had a hard time getting motivated and unstuck this month too for whatever reason—with the OC challenge story in particular I kind of painted myself into a corner—and now that I am finally just starting to unstick myself, it feels so good! My current goal is to finish the OC story before the week is out, and I think I juuuuust may be able to swing it. :)
