My Little Corner of the World
I've forgotten how hard writing was.

I know making myself write every day isn't going to be easy, and I know it'll get easier when it becomes habit, but damn.

My goal is 25000 words. I think. Not easy making word count a goal.

Fine, so, my goal is to write this damn story.

Not planning on finishing it during November, cuz RL is... bleh, but I will try to write every day.

Started with 3000 words. I'm a little over 5000 now, but I know I won't be writing on weekends, so that... makes me nervous.

November means several things.

This year, November is... a little stressful RL-wise, but... But.

I wanna do Nano. Well, mini Nano, or whatever it is you do that's not 100,000 words, cuz that'll never happen. Not in one story anyways.

So I'm gonna go for 20K. Sounds small, but it's really not, not for me.

I'm gonna be bending a few more rules, like starting to write fresh in Nov. 1st.

I'm gonna be working on a new fic that's been in the works for the past what, 6 months? And I barely got 1000 words on it.

I doubt that I'll make it, since I'm lacking motivation big-time, but hey, I'm gonna try.

So on that note, anyone know a good wordmeter? I love Zoduko, but it's no longer working *sobs*. The best thing about it was that you didn't have to put a cap on your wordcount; you could just write how many you have and how many new ones you wrote and it gave you the percentage of how many new words you have.

That's a little more of a positive outlook imo. Not as stressful, since you only see progress and not deadlines, but hey, it's not working, so I'll take what I can get...

(btw, I hate writertopia or whatever its called. It's ugly! *pouts*)

I've seen this on my flist, and I gotta agree.

Please, do not use any of my entries on Facebook or Twitter.

I have no idea why anyone would do that, but just in case, no one could say I didn't ask.

I rarely post personal stuff in here, it's mostly fics, and I'm more than cool about recs, but please, not on Facebook or Twitter.

This has gone on for too long. This meme is just too damn long, so I'm finishing it now.
