    OK, index updated! Hopefully all looks accurate; if not, let me know. Some good productivity happening here. I like this! :D

    As for myself, I haven't gotten any writing done since finishing the MMM piece; I'm preparing to play a recital in two days and that's been dominating my life. After that's out of the way I anticipate having more to report. However, I've started on my reviewing goal with a review of Cold Harvest by devilinthedetails! So that's something. :)

    I got on a roll today and wrote 2274 words on The Journal of Ronen Syndulla-Jarrus, for a total of 2708. This means I'm halfway to my word count goal, but I still need to break the ice on those long neglected WIPs. Hmmm....

    Ground has been broken. 165 words.

    Then I got distracted by long term memory pulling 'Peter Puppy' (from the old Earthworm Jim) cartoons, out of its ass, and making me want to watch a video on his origins.

    I guess this is how prevarication works.

    So, this challenge has done wonders for my muse... but not in the way I wanted it to :p It wants to work on everything but what I signed up with o_O. I managed to make it squeeze out 115 words the other day before it went "OKAY! TIME TO GIVE THE US PRESIDENT JOEY LUCAS!"

    ANYWAYS. But I have managed to read and review the amazing Diary of a very Sympathetic Padawan

    669 words (on "The Winter Queen.")

    Every one of which might have been writ in my own blood. Yes, it has taken most of the month so far to get this much written and rewritten and rewritten again. It turns out that experiencing cabin fever doesn't make it a bit easier to actually write about cabin fever. Maybe I should stop fighting with this one for now and switch to one of the other two stories.

    Woot!

    And index updated! Great work all around! =D=

    One quick thing: for the Finishing Option, you're welcome to report word counts if you like (as Raissa did a few posts up), though you don't have to. I'm glad to put them in the index in the interest of tracking progress, but as you know they aren't counted in quite the same way as in the Word Count option. It's also perfectly fine just to say "I worked a little bit on 'Beached' today." (Which I did. Just a bit, but every bit counts. :D )

    Not to encourage your muse to side track, but I would read President Joey Lucas in a second. Just saying. [face_mischief] [face_dancing] [face_whistling] [face_laugh] [face_love]

    It's great to see everyone's totals adding up, both great and small. Keep up the good work, all! [face_dancing] [:D]

    As for myself, I am off to a slower start than I would like, but I have high hopes about finishing the rest of the month strong! Over the last few days I managed to write another 3,108 words on both my Sintas and Ahsoka diaries for my word count goal. And I was able to get considerable work done on The Worlds Your Hands Touch and Genus for my complete goals. I should have content ready to post soon. So, I am feeling good about that! :D

    Lastly, for the review goal, I am all too happy to have read A Private Place, and Shadow of a Doubt. Which are both beyond lovely pieces! [face_love]

    Wow, nice progress, Mira! =D= Just to quickly check before I update the index: am I adding the figure or 3108 to your current word count figure of 2443, or replacing 2443 with 3108? Thanks. :)

    @Findswoman - Oi, I can't believe that in all of my babbling I left out that one important detail. [face_blush] Yep, those are all new words! So, I now have a total of 5,551 words towards my word count goal! My appologies for being so remiss!

    Got it—thank you so much! :)
    Ah, here's the thing: for the reviewing component of WIPuary, I can only count reviews of stories from the actual WIPuary list. That means that of all of these I can only count "A Private Place"—sorry! But I know that technicality won't faze you, as you're one of our most tireless reviewers. :) @};-

    I wrote 1275 more words (all on "The Winter Queen," as I have not in fact switched stories) and my total is now 1944 words.

    2000 words or bust then.

    -----

    ETA: 248 more words on "The Winter Queen" for a total of 2192.

    Worked on Beached a little more today and got it (or at least its first part or so) to the point where it looks and feels more Ike cohesive prose than raggedy, disconnected jottings. So that’s something, I guess!

    And I also wrote a review on @Mira_Jade ’s very intriguing In That There That Isn’t Here. :)

    Updating index now! :D

    I've worked a little bit on both of my stories, hopefully still on track to get them done.

    I also wrote a review on JediMaster_Jen's The First Knights of Ren
