Writing Accountability - Day 27  
EEE, OMG, you guys! I had the best writing day yesterday! After three straight days of low word counts, I didn't expect much from yesterday. I was even more exhausted and feeling pretty blah. BUT. My roommate had work to do, which meant that there was no Criminal Minds binge-watching, and I was actually able to focus. I managed some decent words on my ATF, but it was when I switched to my DTH that the real magic happened. You know when you start writing a scene, and the words just seem to flow out of you, and you're actually thinking faster than you can type, so that your fingers are almost tripping over themselves just to get the words down? Yeah, it doesn't happen often, but when it does, it's AWESOME! So once again I'm actually a little ahead of schedule, and I officially broke 40k for the month! I have less than 8k more words to write before I hit my overall goal, and that totally seems achievable. The end is in sight! I'm going to lose some writing time tomorrow, so I'm hoping to really kick some ass today.

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: 3,336
Total Words So Far: 42,658

Monthly Goals: draft & finish gift!fic, claim & complete fic for hp_kinkfest, claim & draft hp_goldenage, claim & start dracotops_harry, Auror Training Fic!
Projects Worked On: dracotops_harry, ATF, gift!fic #2

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

Omg that's wonderful!!! Look at all those words! God, that is the best feeling when everything is just pouring out of you! You're almost at the finish line, you've totally got 50k in the bag!!! *Cheers you on*

I had a decent day today, still behind but I'm not too stressed about it. I got down about 1600 words today and I'm at 39,371 words for the month. I worked on making notes on what I want to write for the HP Femslash Bingo going around for femslash feb on tumblr and worked some more on my WIP. I think once I get some work done on DTH this weekend I should be able to catch up since I drafted a solid outline for that project.

OMGOSH yay for words falling out of you faster than you can type!!!! That is the bets feeling, I live for those writing moments. OMG and you're about to hit 50k!!!! Amazing, that is such a huge word count for a month!

I have...written like 2k LOL, but it was a good 2k? I've been doing a bit of art which is fun (and succumbed to DTH :P)

Good luck with the final 8k!

Thanks, lovely! I've currently got about 5k to go, which may be a tall order with two days left, but I am determined!

And congrats on succumbing to the lure that is DTH!
