I haven't forgotten my post but I had to move house and then un-move house and had a very chaotic sleepless week and I straight up do not know where my writing tablet is. I think I left it at somebody's house lol. Will provide screenshot this weekend but I got to 11k and some change plus did three Thunderdomes.

For reasons completely unrelated to me moving and struggling with anxiety/depression this month, are donations and probes still the order of the day for toxxes?

i wasn't going to do this but i'm full of beer and tacos so gently caress it, that i'll write 4K words of something this month

I'm really out of give-a-fucks for the stupid bullshit that wants to come out of my brain and onto the page, but whatever. worst case a charity gets money.

k whatever. twist of fate incoming:

my book writing program thing ate my neat lil arrangement of words and plots, which was stripped down from



words that i wrote this month that could vaguely be classified as lit

im really tired. im like emotionally exhausted & ready to turn over a new leaf or chapter or something. that is not 20k and before the program ate my thing it was stripped down to 10k anyway.

i think im ready for my perma. im on enough discords to like not totally lose the goon community. and i think this will be good for me.



do it

do it

permas by request isn't really the mod zeitgeist these days and I'd probably not do this one even if it were. instead i'm going to give you a week off in fulfilment of the . if you still want a break after that hmu and i'll sort something out.

Completely forgot about this -- I did one TD entry, and I scribbled in a notebook, but I don't feel like counting those words and they're not anywhere close to what I pledged.

i was gonna just eat the toxx and post my charity receipt, but i'm actually a lot closer to my goal than i thought and i am working on something that just fell fully-formed into my head. so i will post my proof a little later today.

woops forgot to come back and post proof.

here's 1900 or so thunderdome words https://thunderdome.cc/?story=8407&title=Salt+and+Acid%2C+Sugar+and+Rind

plus a little over 3K words on a short story



I also submitted 250 words of flash fiction to flash-frontier

that i will finish this story, and if that doesn't amount to 4K more words, then I will make up the difference with other writing.

I am getting back into writing at the behest of my partner and feel like a toxx is mandatory for that.

4k minimum, per the OP: I'm not too hardcore about the toxxing (like a day or two over is nbd) but I think I'll stick with that rule.

Thunderdome is really good if you just want to get in the habit of putting words on the screen.

Oops my bad for brainfart. Put me down to do 4k then. I would do thunderdome again but my timezone and work/life schedule makes it a bit tricky and hard to do consistently. I was intending to lift a prompt and work on one or two for the month at a slower pace of writing.

I started a new draft of the short story, which will probably end up being the third act of the final draft:



I didn't like that as a starting point so I started over again:



Unfortunately, while I have most of a story, I do not have a complete short story. Donated 20 bucks to DESC, who provide housing and assistance to unhoused people around Seattle. I am still waiting for the email receipt but here's the thank you page:



I am fascinated by my inability to finish this story. that I'll finish it in October. If that doesn't result in 4K words, I'll make up the difference with Thunderdome or other writing.
