    I churned out another chapter between yesterday and today. Total 21010.

    Is everyone too busy digesting their Christmas food? :p

    Not me. My circadian rhythm is screwed up to the point that it's ruining my ability to write. :(

    Incorrect. Sundays this time of year are a day to veg out in front of the TV and watch NFL football (that's American football). [face_flag]

    Indeed, no need to be ashamed, ThreadSketch. I'm still at the two-thousand something I reported two or so weeks ago. I'm the one who should slink away and hide! [face_blush]

    Whoa, that was...unexpected. :eek: I just barely deposited a post today and wound up doing a large portion of the next section immediately afterwards, getting me much farther in one day than I thought. So, I'm now at 7,181. Tiny win!

    The List has been updated. Only a few more days to go! I hope no matter how far you got, it was more than you would have written otherwise.

    I got up to 12158 and finished my one-shot (which will be edited and posted in the new year). I think I'm going to spend what little time I have over the next few days plotting out my diary for next year.

    I actually finally got to do some writing tonight and am up from 2290 to an entire 2852! :D Honestly, as long as I finally get this chapter sorted out this month, I'll be content (I thought I had and then it turned out I hadn't and then again maybe I had, and so on seesaw-wise). I do hope we can do something like this again. :)

    Up to 8748 tonight. :)

    And I will second Findswoman's desire to do this again. Maybe make it a monthly challenge? That would keep us all motivated.

    I'm not sure if a monthly challenge will work, but Mav and I can talk about maybe making this a more frequent challenge. I'm going to post a survey when this is all said and done and see what months work best for people.

    Cushy was considering this but considering I have a beta job and my personal story I don't think I can. Good luck with those that are. :)

    It would be great to do this challenge again.

    Since I've finished my holiday fic, my total is at 25,969.

    Even if there were no prizes or colors of that sort of thing (I understand that that sort of thing can't be done every month), even just having a place where we can share word counts with other writers here and offer mutual encouragement would be wonderful. Just that aspect of this thread has been very enjoyable and motivating for me. :)

    =D=

    I'm on 23944 as of this morning. I still need to finish my fic-gift and update my December fanon post, and that will be it for this month [face_relieved]

    I agree that having this as a monthly challenge would be too much, but a word count thread is a good idea.
