My Progress on Haunted

Is decidedly slow. I’m very prone to distraction, procrastination… What’s new 😉

I think I need to re-examine my writing habits (and I’m glad I’m doing it now rather than waiting for November). I’m finding I write better lately earlier in the day, where I’ve always written best at night before. That’ll take some adjusting to, some earlier nights, some getting up at dawn O.O And some time management.

So after five days I have a very modest not-quite-3000-words. Oh, that sounds terrible! Yeah, that’s pretty terrible. I am going to make it up to 3k tonight, then change my daily target to 1k, and hopefully I’ll come out at the end of it with about 10k—which should do the job, I reckon, considering at 1.5k I was where I’d planned to be at 5k.

Yeah, I seem to be bare-bonesing it, which is fine. There’ll definitely be scenes I’ll add in when I rewrite.

NaNo Procrastination

What a bloody good excuse for a first post.

Well, I’m still writing, just not what I’m meant to be writing. I still have time to finish my nano story, and I really do want to finish it–because I want it to be over already. God, I’m so sick of it. I feel like I’ve written it about a hundred times…and I’m probably not far wrong.

Worst story ever. That’s about the size of it.

So, current preferred method of procrastination, writing something else! I have completed a short story, done some pre-writing on another, and picked up an old thing which I’m intending to complete. This has captured my interest far more than my nano proper ever has. Which, frankly, sucks.

But, oh well. I am back into a healthy habit of writing. Every evening for the last, what? 24 days? I have put my butt in the chair between 10pm and midnight, and written. I generally get out about 2k, more or less, in that time. Which is pretty damn good, I reckon.

If I write too much more than that per day, I go stupid. Which is probably why my nano proper went to shit so fast.

What was I talking about? Oh, yeah, procrastinating. At least I’m still writing, yeah?
