I feel a little better now. 12420 words for the end of the week. So, I made my daily word count and this weeks word count (which was around 11669) and I'm going to go off and start tomorrow's word count now, because I had a fantastic nap earlier.

So, more writing time!

Um... I started yestereday with a word count of something like 11840, or something like that. It was very pretty, and it meant that I had an entire day's worth of writing to act as a buffer.

So, then I decide that, well, I can chop the last 400 words of the first chapter and rewrite it without too much problem. Did that, came back up to my word count, was happy.

But that meant that I lost 400 words at the beginning of chapter two. And another 500 at the end. And, um... that's a little harder to come back from, so now I'm at 11042 words. Still completely doable, I'm still -not- behind, because I was ahead and now I've lost the buffer it just means I'm on track.

*sniffles* Yet that means my buffer is (currently) gone, and today is the day I need it most, because it's Wednesday, Humpday, and EVERYTHING IS DUE IN TWO DAYS!!!!!

Program, program, diode lab report, homework...

Not that everything isn't doable, and not that I probably won't put my writing first, but it makes me sad that I lost my buffer just as my stress is skyrocketing.

Also: quiz on Friday. Over stuff that will probably slay my brain.

Give me my Tuesday back, you infernal Internal Editor!

[livejournal.com profile] ice_is_blue has been very kindly prompting me for... oh, ever? ^__^ But I've jumped my self-imposed, for-no-real-reason, word total from 1k a day to 2k. And today is already mostly a failure. Sometimes I only get a drabble, sometimes only a 500 word ficlet... sometimes an idea goes nowhere and I have to ask for something else.

So, I've been thinking, I'd give out a bit of a challenge. Leave a reply with one word, and I will do my best to write something on it. Don't leave a pairing or a fandom, though, because I tend to let the words do that for itself. Odd, yes, but it works out the best. You can leave a pairing, and I'll attempt it first, but it's less likely that I'll end up using it than using the word alone.

If I can get it to a point where I'm happy with it, as with the ficlets and drabbles I've been posting, then I'll share it. Other times, I leave the fics on the chopping blocks of my mind because I can't work around a spot, can't find the right words for an idea, etc. But I'll try. Leave one word, leave a list. ^__^ Not too long, though. Obscure is fine, as I don't mind looking them up, but what I come up with is very likely -not- what you were probably thinking.

That's all the warnings, what 'rule's' there are. ^__^

I like the idea of tags, and I think they're damned useful things... so I've started back at my first entry and am working my way forward, tagging them, even the random ones. You'll know those by the 'random' tag on them. Yes, I am a dork, thank you for noticing. ^__^

Also, I managed to get my word count last week, barely. 7011 words for seven days, which is eleven more than I was telling myself I had to have. This week, however... so not happening. I have what pretty much amounts to a big fat 0 (oh, yay) and pretty much no intention of trying to write seven thousand words in the next three hours. Not that I couldn't do it... I just don't think I will. Because I don't really -feel- like it.

Why yes, I'm also lazy, thank you again for noticing. *goes back to tagging*
