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.

Alibi sentence.

To be honest, I didn't even try today. Slept a LOT, and then was fuzzy-headed for the rest of the day. I've done absolutely nothing all day, and I think I needed that. We'll see how I feel when I wake up tomorrow.

*hugs* Sounds like you indeed needed that!
trobadora

Yeah, sometimes you just need a break. *hugs back*
navaan
Feb. 17th, 2017 05:29 pm (UTC)
Yeah, sounds like you really needed that! Sometimes taking time for that is the right thing to do! *hugs*

Yeah. I'm taking a second day off, too - it seems to be helping.

Sometimes a day or two of not doing anything at all is the best thing for your brain. <3

My brain's doing much better today, but I don't want to push it, so I'm taking another day off.

Going to try and write properly again tomorrow - we'll see how that goes.

Finally getting a chance to get some writing done. I started editing, and then a little voice in my head screamed, "Don't edit - just write!!!" So I'm heading that advice. I mean, I *always* listen to the voices in my head. ::snerk::

By the way, thank you for doing this. I've written a lot more than I might normally because of this! :)

That definitely sounds like a helpful voice to me! Congrats! :D

And I'm very glad this is helpful, I know I would have produced a lot less during the past two years without the need to check in here. :)

About 100 words on a fanfic. Was glad to get even that; I was so, so tired, and didn't have that much writing time anyway. Now I just need to get through today and then it's weekend and I have no plans and I can REST.

I hope you're getting lots of rest on the weekend, it sounds as if you really need it! *hugs*

Yay for struggling through! It sounds like you really deserve your weekend this week!

Yeah, it's been quite a tough week, but I made it through! Yay!

I was already dozing off yesterday night when I realised I'd done nothing (NOTHING!) with the RPG Maker that day. Fortunately I remembered that I'd at least started writing my monthly LJ entry in the office over midday, so...saved over another day of the challenge. XD

Ha, it seems that lunchbreak writing has saved quite a few of us over the years of this challenge. :D

I have another new case, and might have to fly to New York next week or after to interview some folks. it isn't as glamorous as it sounds since I'll be phenomenally jetlagged, will likely need to be in and out in a day or so, and Anastasia hasn't started :( (On the plus side, I managed to convince the client to let my second chair do his case, so I have clear water for Smut Swap as well as the Porn Battle.)

Alibi sentence for me. At least /you've/ been productive <333

Well, Anastasia might not have opened yet but there's always Jeremy in Sweeney... :D But I hear you on the jetlag, I always struggle with it in that direction while I can shake it off easily in a day or two on the return. :/

But yay, very happy to have you free for Smut Swap and Porn Battle! \o/

Feb. 18th, 2017 01:09 pm (UTC)
omg, you're right -- there is indeed Jeremy in Sweeney! I am still trying to see if I can do the thing by conference call, but if I do need to go I will at least have something to look forward to ;)

I decided what to work at next, which is the pinch-hit I've written for last Yule; it hasn't a good end and feels unfinished because I was ill, ran out of time and inspiration at the time. I've re-read it, edited some minor things, came up with a good idea of how to continue and wrote about 90 words of draft.
esteliel
Feb. 17th, 2017 04:43 pm (UTC)
Aww, I know that feeling when I'm really unhappy with an exchange fic - I'm glad you got inspired again! :)
navaan
Feb. 17th, 2017 05:30 pm (UTC)
1000 words. I know I could have done more, but I decided to go to bed early for once! Will catch up today, hopefully. ;)

Wheeee! Posting again! You are always very good with your WIPs. It's very impressive.

1k is quite a lot! And a day with both writing and sleep sounds like a good compromise.

It's because this monster of a story is pretty much my distilled id, so I could just write it all day every day. /o\ (Still, the self-imposed weekly deadlines help.)

I didn't write anything on day 14, but on days 15 and 16 I managed to work on my trial lecture - sorry to have missed yesterday's check-in!

Adding you! And yay, well done! \o/
