Welp, got my 10k done. (split across 7 documents because I was working on several ideas and also I'm a disorganized, sue me) Bad news is it's entirely poo poo I don't want to inflict on other humans. Half of it's not even actual story; it's the written equivalent of stalling, with some word salad thrown in.
I blame COVID and anxiety for giving me writer's block.

But! If this is satisfactory I would like to go again for April, this time for 2k BUT I have to post it for others to read. That way I have to put all my effort into making one story that I'm satisfied with.

Hi! How's the posting going? Feel free to post a thread in CC if you haven't already; the minimum is actually 4k but I didn't catch it when you posted so you're good, this time.

post for a nu page actually to say ban my rear end. i could only come up with 28 k, split into these 2 docs:

unnamed pt.1

unnamed pt. 2

pt. 1 is edited to be readable, pt. 2 is not

i thought id made up the days i missed in extra words but im too tired to look for wherever words may be hiding and i dont remember writing stuff i didnt see compiled in one of the docs. i could make it up in a couple days but honestly it would take till may 3

ban me cuz u kno u wanna but i really tried

cuz i wanna keep going make it a perma if i dont rereg at the end of may with at least 20k and the codex piece i started finished. i think people might breathe a bit easier if i was permad also. im too tired to like... not type that

Take till May 3 dude, let's call it May 3, 2359 PST.

This is to help us get words down, long as you do that it's doing its job.

here is where I left off:



My LW doc is now updated with three additional chapters and a brief interlude.

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ZbfdUh_CdrrDcyrSyV6Fl_4dgq5pGWrpBvpm8uS1_4g/edit?usp=sharing

for three more chapters by the end of April, or two chapters and two interludes

The above google docs link is now up to date. I added four complete chapters and one incomplete chapter, exceeding my goal.

If you are reading along, just FYI this part is more first drafty than others and there may be lots of weird first drafty stuff. I appreciate everyone who is reading and leaving little comments



Chapter list showing the additional chapters.

for three more chapters in May

This will take some explaining because I did a huge revamp in addition to new chapters.



https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ZbfdUh_CdrrDcyrSyV6Fl_4dgq5pGWrpBvpm8uS1_4g/edit?usp=sharing

Chapters circled in orange were heavily edited, broken up, and rearranged.

Chapters in blue are new (One of them I had started last month, so it's in the previous chapter list, but I hadn't finished it and ultimately rewrote what I did have).

Red chapter was not edited at all.

I am counting the "orange" chapters as new because it took essentially the same amount of time and words as an entirely brand new chapter. So all the orange + two blue = goal for May.

Link updated with new content. Total new words was around 5K, maybe more but it's hard to say.

for three more chapters (or comparable work)

...as I post the above, I realize that I had not in fact written working title "Merle is sanguine as gently caress" as of my last check-in. So actually I did more like 4 chapters worth of work.

Hey, since I'm probably not going to make my toxx, and I don't feel comfortable giving money to these forums right now to re-reg, is it possible that if (when) I fail I could make a donation to a charity instead?

Edit: I'm also fine with a probation to permanently mark my account with the shame of failure lol

That's fine; I'll make it a three day + $10 donation to retain the motivation factor.

Hoping the offer of donations and probes instead of bans is open, since I already donated.

Real gratitude talk: I've been wordstipated on this project for months now, and while I procrastinated for almost all of June and farted out my 10K in a mad cacophony at the end, I also solved a bunch of plot problems along the way and got some new momentum. So, thanks LW thread.
