    First week's tally: 1,607

    Sort of...better than I expected, actually. But this past week has been the most free time for fanficcing I've had in literally years, and I probably won't be able to keep this up for the rest of this month, especially 'cause I will be seeing my family tomorrow after four years away from home :)

    I still feel vaguely like I'm cheating on this, with trying to suppress the obsessive compulsions to rewrite, and just banging a draft out :p

    Next year's diary is officially outlined!! :D YAY!!
    Now, to work on the epic I've been trying, and failling, to write all year.

    Oh, and the tally is 452.

    Yeah, it's much harder (almost impossible) to write during the week - I used to come home by around 4:30pm and now it's after 6pm; work has changed rather drastically. [face_tired] And I already spend my entire day staring at two computer screens, so doing it when I come home...yeesh, lol.

    Eek, ThreadSketch -- such things makes writing even on an modified schedule difficult. [face_frustrated]

    I'm up to 6459, but I think I'm going to take a break for a couple of days as I'm feeling a bit burnt out.

    [Keanu_Reeves] Whoa. :eek: [/Keanu] I actually managed to bang out 2,220 today. That brings me up to 3,600. At least I feel slightly less schlubby now. :p

    Woot! Some really productive days for some!

    I ended up having another weird, distraction filled day. So I just kinda sat down this evening and wrote a bit between watching videos, trying to get my daily 300 in, and it honestly felt like only 300, but when I did the word count, I somehow ended up with 679, bringing my total to 5204.

    Tomorrow I'm going to try hopping between fic-writing and studying and see where that gets me.

    I didn't get anything written yesterday and only a tad the day before, so I'm going to try to get back into the groove this evening. I am indeed finally done with the chapter I was stuck on, but it ended in a slightly unexpected way, so now I'm going to probably get stuck on begining the next chapter (if that makes any sense). Typical! :p

    Grand total 7531.

    The (unedited) 1290 I wrote today are for a one-shot that I will, repeat will, repeat will, complete tomorrow. Or maybe I won't, it depends.

    Ha. I said I'd complete my one-shot yesterday, and I haven't written a word. Time to get back on track :mad:

    I got zip done yesterday (we were having weird power surges due to a storm, plus it was my step-father's birthday). I got noting done today because I've been "studying" for my exam. I'm hoping to get back on track tomorrow after my exam. I'll update the main list then.

    This has been a singularly bad writing week for me: too much real-life junk leading to dog-tiredness at day's end. :( But, um, I just scrawled down some notes? :D So hopefully later today I'll actually get my rear and gear and finish Trouble Chapter.

    I wrote an extra 1433 yesterday for a grand total of 8964, but I'm still not finished on what I want to finish :mad: That'll teach me to be working on too many things at once.

    Yay, Chyntuck!! That is a great grand total. ;) I'll be writing up over the weekend more detailed notes for a possible second diary for 2015. :cool: Woot! I've been bitten by the whole twin-bond thing. [face_love]

    I am burned out. I don't think I will hit 2000. The trouble is most of my writing is paragraphs in ongoing fanfics and I don't want to go to the trouble of figuring out what new stuff I wrote compared to the previously written part of the story. I guess I could write it in a different color and then just add up those words.

    The list has been updated.

    I haven't written much lately, but I'm currently at 5968. I think I might take tonight off as well to let my brain recover. My goal is by the end of the weekend to have my current fic done. I have a chapter and a half to go, so I'm not sure how successful I'll be.
