People were stupid, sometimes. They thought the Library was a dangerous place because of all the magical books, which was true enough, but what made it really one of the most dangerous places there could ever be was the simple fact that it was a library.


Gently squeaking in under the finish line. Got 3 sections of my current thing written and to make it easier to keep track of my progress I decided to chop them into bits.







total...4939 words. not bad but I don't think I want to do this again until I get myself sorted out personally...

Okay, thank you for your patience. I wrote 5016 words in February. Most were in Thunderdome and are verifiable through that.


Here's the wordcount for the personal story I did:


The writing exercises I did only amounted to about 300 words, so I'm not gonna count 'em.

Thank you for your time.

Getting over the feeling that you have to pass some imaginary finish line before you submit is really important, because even when you do pass that line they will still say 'no' 90% of the time.

I was over half my goal when I last typed stuff up, I have a bunch more handwritten sheets to type up because I'm a crazyperson who likes to make things harder than they need to be. Should be golden for this month.

I'm about 1300 words off my target which this weeks Thunderdome will probably meet. If not I'll write a bunch of Haikus to finish up.

The bulk of my writing this month was incomplete or non-fiction writing (had to do a seminar presentation).

Here's my thing for March: https://docs.google.com/document/d/...dit?usp=sharing

Just a little over 4k words. I still have a lot more of handwritten stuff to type up, but I tend to not think of anything handwritten as "real" until it's digital, since I do a lot of editing on the fly as I type it. Plus maybe the house will burn down and it'll be like it never existed.

Also I doubt anyone would, but don't actually read that, it's full of dumb spelling and typing mistakes, bad grammar, and just flat out awful writing.

A quick update, My TD295 story wasn't 1300 (it's 1090), so I started on a short story that I want to expand further on. I'm about 500 words into that putting me around 200 words over my goal.

For April though I'll have no goal as I need to focus on other projects

hit 5K without really noticing it this month, which is good because I was swamped with moving house and such. Mostly I did thunderdome words but I've also been puttering away at a disgustingly self indulgent thing while procrastinating editing a short story.

1800 words:

1400 words:

2700 words on selfindulgia

for 5000 again next month and 1000 of those must be the next draft of my short story
