Writing Accountability - Day 10

Keeping on track by the skin of my teeth. Definitely helped working a bit on other projects yesterday, though I also managed to sneak in a couple hundred words on my ATF. I'm enjoying stretching myself in terms of hitting word count and just getting a large chunk of this long!fic out in actual words. The outline is so long, that it's always been a little daunting to even get started. But I'm also coming to realize that this pace isn't necessarily super realistic for me, and that in certain ways, it's actually creating additional stress. Because I'm shooting for a word count outside my comfort zone, I have to prioritize drafting large chunks of scenes, and I can't necessarily take the time to slow down and fine tune details. I know I can come back to all of that in editing, but it leaves stuff feeling very unfinished and poorly done, which the type A part of me finds excruciating. But I definitely plan on continuing with the challenge, and it's been fun and interesting to learn new things about myself and my writing style. :D

Unfortunately, I'm not sure I'll be able to get much written tonight. I just got back from an eye exam and my eyes were dilated, which means bright lights and focusing on close images are both difficult. :/

But I'll make an attempt nonetheless. I'm about to head into hd_writers srsbzns Chatzy chat room, if anybody is around and wants to join me for some sprints. I should be there for a few hours!

Total Monthly Goal: 50,000
New Words Written: 1,615
Total Words So Far: 14,548

Monthly Goals: draft & finish gift!fic, claim & write fic for hp_kinkfest, Auror Training Fic!

I'd love to hear how y'all are doing with your writing endeavors as well, so please feel free to comment on this post and any future posts with your writing progress!
