I just got home from work am dead. I'll post my charity proof later.

Good news: I wrote a lot this month and progressed my (long) short story.

Bad news: I didn't technically finish it which was the terms of my toxx. For November I'm just :toxxing: to write 5K words because apparently I can't pressure myself into finishing this particular project on any meaningful timeline

We lied. We are not at war. There is no enemy. This is a rescue operation.

Hit goal, forgot this was a thing. Will post proof later.

Edit:

This is basically everything I wrote for the month smashed up into one big document. The bulk of my writing was spent on outlining my Nano attempt and revising said outline. Final word total was 3,869 for that bit, the rest of the 4k was TD related.

I toxx'd in the Nano thread, but I might as well repeat it here.

50k words by 11/30/20

E: I'm just reposing my totals from the Nano thread as another way to hold myself accountable. If it gets annoying I will stop but:

10/31/20: 4k base ante (Met on 11/4/20)

6k additional words to bring the total up 11,021 (in progress 11/4/20)

Just dropping into the thread to thank it for existing.

I just finished the main draft of the project I've worked on for the past couple of years, and I wouldn't have gotten the writing habit to stick if I hadn't done a couple of toxxes. They got me into the habit of writing (nearly) every day and I no longer worry about my work ethic being too poo poo to do something novel-length.



It's loving huge but it's done and I am happy to move on to something else.

right i wrote ANOTHER loving partial draft of this short story and realized that it was totally unworkable because I need this to top out at about 7,500 words.



so i've just written 1000 words of outline which i am not optimistic about.



i'm going to for 5K more words but at this point it's just self flagellation someone shoot me pls

20k in February on novel ms to reach >= 150k. Must also include the words "The Materfornicatin' End" because it has been reached and not just because I put it in after 20k words hoping no one will notice. One last push to get this blind, hairless, idiot mousechild out into the world.

spent most of the month failing TD and working on my Nano attempt.



Feeling kind of unmotivated to write right now due to personal stuff so I'm gonna step away from TD/LW for the month and come back in March. Good luck everyone!

Stick a fork in it, it's done.

Except for all the rewriting so it makes sense and isn't just a bunch of poo poo I thought up at various times in a row.

Passed the total by 1k I think. I'll post proof in a little bit.

E:

Took everything I wrote for the month and smashed it into one doc. Final total 5,608

Pretty much all of this was working on my aborted nano attempt. I'm hoping to have a complete draft by the end of the year.

4k in April.
