Write Every Day! February - Day 23

500 words of origfic and another 600 words on the slavefic WIP for me today. Also, I managed to do the final round of edits and got to post chapter 33. It's so exciting to at least get close to the end of act 2 of this story (with act 3 and all the words that will entail looming before me).
Still, nothing more satisfying than getting to the emotionally rewarding bits you wrote all those words for.

...what I still haven't done is finish my Smut Swap letter. Hopefully tomorrow... /o\

Write Every Day! February - Day 22

Today I wrote about 600 words of tropey origfic, and then managed an entire first edit pass through the next slavefic chapter. Usually I always have to force myself to edit, but for some reason I was enjoying going through this chapter so much that I didn't even realize I'd made it through all pages until I got to the end. I wish this would happen more often when I edit, but I guess this is also a pretty obvious sign that I'm doing a good job writing for my own id in this chapter! :D

I also made a lot more progress on the Smut Swap letter. Mainly on the fiddly layout part, but at least I've got all the 5x 40 kinks now arranged in an easily legible way, yay? Perhaps tomorrow I'll manage to finish what's left...

Write Every Day! February - Day 21

Today was yet again not very productive - 350 words of tropey origfic. Hopefully I'll get over this tomorrow because tomorrow I'll need to start editing my WIP.

For some reason my Smut Swap letter also didn't happen today, argh. On the other hand, Chocolate Box author reveals happened, and I'm pleased to see that my guesses were 100% correct. :D I still haven't heard from my recip, but at least my story got a comment from someone else (and I got so spoiled with stories that this exchange made me very happy regardless! <3).

In not so exciting news, my new vacuum arrived, which makes dealing with all the cat hair a little easier. In more exciting news, my DMT+ membership card also arrived. I can't believe I bought a membership to a London theatre when I don't even live in the UK, but on the other hand, given the booking fees and exchange fees I paid last year, by now this basically pays for itself. /o\ Also I now have vouchers for free wine, yay?

Write Every Day! February - Day 20

Today I did indeed make up for slacking off on the weekend - I wrote 2.5k of my slavefic WIP, which led to a finished first draft of chapter 33. \o/ I think another 3 chapters or so might finish the 2nd act of this story. At 100k, so this will probably indeed end up AT LEAST 130k, sigh.

I wonder if I'll still be working on this when the new BBC adaptation finally comes out...

Write Every Day! February - Day 19

I spent half the day with family, so alas, once more it's not the sort of wordcount I would have liked. 436 words of my slavefic WIP - but at least just as I thought, as soon as I went back a few paragraphs to start that section over, writing became a lot easier, and I know exactly how this is going to progress now. 2 days left to write another ~2k of this so I can keep my schedule, which should be fine. (As long as I don't slack off tomorrow again.)

I also started on my Smut Swap signup which was quite an adventure. And I'm still not done! I'm not looking forward to the letter writing because there are just so many kinks I want. /o\

Write Every Day! February - Day 18

Today was less productive than I like for a weekend, but I managed around 800 words of tropey origfic and a measly 170 words of my WIP, boo. The problem here is that there are two ways the action could progress to get to my next plot point, and I wasn't 100% certain which approach I'd prefer - and that uncertainty, as always, results in me not getting much done. So instead I finally tried to think about how I want this and the next scenes to go, and I think if I delete a couple of paragraphs to take a slightly different approach, this is going to progress much better. Hopefully tomorrow!

Also I see that Smut Swap signups have opened, and just like last year it's going to be absolutely agonizing to whittle down this list to 40 kinks! /o\

For some reason I was really feeling the tropey origfic today and made quite some progress on that, yay! Enemies to lovers is just such a good trope. On the other hand, no progress on the WIP, but I've still got all weekend and am for once free of exchange deadlines, so I'm not too worried.

Write Every Day! February - Day 16

Today wasn't quite as productive, but I managed to finish all the edits on my next slavefic chapter and got to post chapter 32. I also saw that prompting opened today for Porn Battle, and I've already taken advantage of that. I'm really looking forward to this again, though we'll see whether I'll actually still be able to write short...

For some reason I'm also rather tired today, so I might just try to go to bed early for once and see if that helps my writing mojo tomorrow.

Write Every Day! February - Day 15

Today I managed around 700 words of a new origfic thing that so far is mainly tropey self-indulgment, and so unsurprisingly is a lot of fun to write. But as it is also editing Wednesday once more, I spent the rest of the evening with a first editing pass through the next slavefic WIP chapter, phew. Because I'm such an awful procrastinator and get distracted so easily, I always do two passes; I use the first to do easy fixes etc, and mark everything where I can't immediately see a way to improve something but which still strikes me as awkward/possibly needing more research etc. The second editing pass is then solely focusing on those marked bits, which for some reason gets easier when I don't have the entirety of the chapter hanging over me. I have no idea why my brain works like this, but this is so far the best approach I've found in all those years of writing.

Anyway, this chapter has more yellow bits standing out than I like, so I guess tomorrow evening will be wrestling all of those into submission. (There is sexual tension though, so this is worth all the pain. Only took me 90k to get here...)

Write Every Day! February - Day 14

Chocolate Box reveals happened, and I got completely spoiled with two amazing stories! The Sexy Toulon BDSM AU of all my #problematic dreams, and pervy Wattsvert kinking on introducing his innocent bf to butt plugs, so I couldn't be happier! (I'm also quite certain that both authors can be found in this tally because both things are catering way too well to me! <3)

I did a tiny amount of editing, but mostly just read and commented on my amazing gifts.
