PostSubject: Accountability Challenge   8th July 2013, 12:27 pm

So, I'm hoping to get some people on board with me. I have trouble sitting down to write on my fanfics, and as a result my chapter story is taking a real hit.

I have an idea to do 30,000 words a month. Or 1000 words a day, or whatever works with your schedule, because it's 30,000 words a month, that's all you really need to get to.

The idea I have is to keep track of your words with a word counter or something. I think you can get one from the nanowrimo site. We could plug in our numbers and show it here on this thread for July 10th-August 10th.

Do you have any projects you've been meaning to get around to? It can be a fanfic, an original story, or maybe several projects?

Join me, because I can really use some accountability partners!

Let me know below guys!

I've had so many readers contact me via FF.Net, deviantArt, and even Tumblr. Asking me when my next chapters would be out. I've been neglecting two different fanfics. So, I'm in.

T_T One ATLA fanfic is a rewrite and the other one is another ATLA fanfic post-Hundred Year War, focusing on a more realistic approach to Azula recovering from her insanity.

So much to do and so little time.

No one has posted in a while. 

How is everyone doing so far? Today is day 1! I'm kind of in a cross between writing on paper and on the computer. I'm going to edit my word count at the end of the day! 

What about you ladies?

 You sound like me! I always "plan" to get started. In the end it never happens with me though. I'm just like, "Chibi it! I'm doing this now!" xD

Hopefully I'll get chapter 16 completed to send to my beta reader today. That's the hope. 

What are you working on?

Yeah! xD "Planning" to get started and actually getting started are very much different things haha  

I was going to work on a Rise-of-Sailor-Cosmos fanfic but since I have the Metamorphosis RP to fill that slot right now, I am going to begin on an original story instead xD

I wish you the best of luck in getting your next chapter out :3 I bet your readers would be super happy to get an update soon!

It sounds awesome that you're starting an original story! I'd eventually like to venture in that myself. Hopefully you'll share small bits with us throughout the month!  

It's 1:30pm my time now, and I need to take advantage of some time with the hubby. I decided to edit my word count. I was going to do all of my chapter, but then I realized that I had done much of it a couple of days ago, so instead I'm just going to put in whatever I did today. I might do more later, but as of right now here is my progress:


1188 / 30000 words. 4% done!

 So, still on chapter 16, but that's a-okay. I have plenty of time to keep it going. Plus I did send the first chunk to my beta reader to be edited, and got that done as well. So, I'm happy with today's progress and will not feel bad about not finishing 16 today. =)

You did lots of progress today, and that's something to always be proud of!! :ahug:Congrats on it! =D  I hope you enjoy your time with your hubby :3

Here is my progress for today xD:


1068 / 30000 words. 4% done!

I was going to stop at 600 and decide that I would catch up tomorrow but I guess I got a little more caught up than I thought =P I am also posting this 1 minute before midnight over here hahah so that's pretty awesome =P

It is fun to write with you all!

And I'm gonna keep on writing tonight. My original idea for the chapter changed part way through and need to write it out before I forget it. This was definitely the motivation I needed!

Woot! Kick butt job, Agent! 

I'm finished with the rest of chapter 16 now!

Here's my word count for the day so far (In case I decide to write more later.)


2116 / 30000 words. 7% done!

The total word count of chapter 16 without the rest of the notes to edit from my beta is: 4519 words! =D

Well, time to send off the chapter! =D

Ari-chan, how are you doing?
