THE LONG WALK

23: If you die in the thread you die IRL



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? 3,107,000. Some of them might have been good? idk

what happens if I gently caress it up every promise has to have a :toxx: 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 most of us hang out in #thunderdome

where are the previous months 2015 April, May June July, August, September, October , November, December, 2016 January, February, March, April, May
June, July, September, October, November, December, January

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 forever, i guess? we'll see

lol you are a chip off the old get hosed

Yeah, 15K is about right given the social circumstances I will have to deal with for most of the month.

No lecture notes, no assignments.

At least 5K towards the textbook. At least 5K towards the same piece of fiction as before. 5K on anything.

Five more sections of my fiction uploaded at minimum.

:toxx:

And more stuff, but that is all conditional on getting an advertiser, so not toxxable.

Welp, the month is almost over. I'm coming down with both engines on fire. Requesting a clear landing runway. A river might do too.

I'm on my second disease of the month. Also getting divorced. Also possibly jobless within two months.

But hey, at least I wrote words and published them: http://antipode.space/ is now up to 9 chunks on it, with five new pieces of writing published. Some people from Russia even come to visit sometimes. Neat. Yay, Google Analytics. That's the only non-count goal for this month and that is met.

Otherwise looks like I'm making it for the count too. About 4K words left over three days. I really only need to write 3K, but I'm going to try not to include the yucky option of passing my notes as words that I originally wanted to count. Totally doable. I just wish the pain in my head/ears would stop and that I could not be so woozy! Oh, and I wish I could stop throwing up too. Or sleep.

Quota loving met.

Textbook at: 42752, a change of 7981.
Fiction at: 15106, a change of 5064. Pushed out the few required new episodes, though they were rather short still.
And about ~2.5K words written in daily prompts and TD.

This one was much closer than I'd like it to have been. Considering what hell my life has become, I think I will take this and not do this kind of thing eve--

:toxx: I'm doing this next month too.

Ok, hang on just a second.

How come does everyone have a neat count and only I seem to be reporting deltas from previous month?

Do you guys have some kind of change tracking software for this? Or am I the only one tracking continuous projects?
