This is how you communicate with a fellow intelligence: you hurt it, you keep on hurting it, until you can distinguish the posts from the screams.

also if if I ever punked anyone for not writing w/ the pathetic excuse of they have a job im sorry lol. I have not written a word each day I've worked. Lit. Get home and pass out

if anyone has any Advice on writing Fiction on days u just feel like sleeping off after work plz post up

I use an app for this just because I like to keep track of the time I spend and see for myself how much time I'm actually setting aside, but I give myself a goal of 1 hour per day. This is just me, but 1 hour actually sounds like it's too little and I feel guilty for it, but when I actually sit down and work for a solid hour with no distractions, I actually make progress. I also almost always find that when the hour is up, I'm usually in the zone and don't want to stop.

Find a slot of time ideal for you, wether it's morning or evening and give yourself a timeslot. It doesn't have to be an hour, it could be 10 minutes, but when that time hits, do it. If you can't think of anything or the words don't come, that's okay, because thinking of what to write and mulling over ideas counts as far as I'm concerned. As someone trying to write a murder mystery VN, thinking on the topic, coming up with ideas for twists, motives, red herrings etc. are all things that don't go on paper (unless I'm taking notes of promising ideas) but it still counts as working on it, in my eyes.

The Baron's daughter is missing, and you are the man to find her. No problem. With your inexhaustible arsenal of hard-boiled similes, there is nothing you can't handle.
