THE LONG WALK

13: April Fools



so what's this then this is where you get to do something about writing that novel you've always had inside you and can finally get all the money respect sex nothing you deserve.

sounds cool how does it work round about the first day of every month I put a thread up and you post in it to say how much new writing you're gonna post by 2359 PST on the last day of that month. there might be a little general leeway at the end of the month, but don't count on it and don't ask for extensions.

lol imma post one word 'lol' there I won lol there's a 4k word minimum. you can pledge more if you like, but 4k is the ante.

how many terrible words have been written through this thread and the ones before it? 1,750,000. Some of them might have been good? idk

what happens if I gently caress it up every promise has to have a attached. you fail, you get banned.

how should I post my stuff up to you, but a link to a gdoc with comments enabled is best that way you won't restrict your publication options later.

can I do short stories sure. It has to be new words (prose, poetry, limericks) but otherwise you can post whatever as long as you make the wordcount

can I critpost, shitpost, or shart my jorts don't really care, it's not the thunderdome so just follow the exhortations of your clotted goony heart but keep in mind that detailed crits of longform stuff aren't super useful; better to keep them general. normal CC rules apply so be harsh but helpful

is there an irc channel yes, if you've signed up: synirc, #longwalk, but most of us hang out in #thunderdome

where are the previous months April, May June July, August, September, October , November, December, January, February, March

who tells the mods if i gently caress up and don't make it anyone can call in a failed toxx; if no one else does it I do

who checks i've done it i could just not and say i did lol you need to satisfy me, which isn't a high bar tbh, but I'll probably need to see something, up to you what that is

how long are you gonna do it for at least a year, but if it's working for people there's no reason it couldn't go on longer

ock a lock a loolay i could shoot you and no-one would even look up from their latte

I finally hit the point where I want to write every day, even if its still slow going. Unfortunately I also promised someone I would review his 67 map big doom collection, so that's going to be taking up some time. Best to put this here now.

I've hit my goals for words and subs, but I'm gonna take the last week to run up the score on my word count. At this rate, I should have the first draft of my first novel done by the end of May. Also, two (holy poo poo, two!) of my subs got accepted this month on the same day. (Thankfully not the same story!)

First chunk is here



Second chunk in somewhere in here



That involves some revising, editing, rewriting, etc. but at least 6,000 words happened there.

I also wrote about 2,000 words of garbage that I deleted out of spite. Even so, 16,000 > 15,000 so goal status: achieved.

All new words for a new, half-finished book.



About 32k of those are April's words for a finished book.
