I've been writing about 1000 words a day since August, and now I have far too much unedited writing. I've been using 750words.com to motivate myself to keep going, and at the moment it says "[Clanker] has written a total of 214,146 words and completed 191 days." You get a badge for 250,000 words, so I'm going to keep going until I get up to that, and then start using it to edit my writing too. It just feels dishonest to tell the site I've written an addition 1000 bad words when what I've done is change 1000 previously written bad words into good words. It's not like editing's any easier than getting the words down. It just feels dishonest.
I am going to finish the fic about Phineas and Ferb's kids time travelling. I ate too many sardines or something while I was editing it and didn't have the energy to keep it up. And I finished the story where they play Homestuck, and I'm aware that's the name of the webcomic and not the game within the webcomic, but it's over 60,000 words and it's going to need a lot of editing. I guess I just really like Phineas and Ferb, Homestuck, crossovers, AUs and the next generation I made up.
The thing about sardines wasn't an attempt at random humour. There seems to be a lot of foods that sap my energy when I eat them. Like milk or eggs. It's really annoying. My energy isn't that great at the best of times. Sometimes it's my own fault for spending the entire day playing Skyrim instead of eating or going outside, but other times I just have no energy for no reason. I like getting things done.
Except on Skyrim days. Now I remember why I stopped playing it for so long.
I'm also practicing drawing on and off. In a year or two, I might even be good enough to have a style. An aesthetically pleasing style I mean, not the kind where you throw wobbly lines at the paper because you don't know any better because you thought being taught absolutely nothing in year nine art meant there was nothing to teach about art so you didn't check to confirm.
I'm really glad I took that introductory art course in 2008 or whenever that was. Really need to take a life drawing class now. I bet that'd help a lot.
