Write Every Day: March 15

I don't know how it got to be after four, but I'm gonna post the check-in now, before I blink again and find it's after seven.

How's things? What's your biggest obstacle right now?

562 words.

And I just realized it's past midnight and I should be heading to bed. 24 hours really aren't enough some days...

My biggest obstacle is tiredness. I'm still struggling to get my sleep back into its usual pattern after the time change. Still, I added 836 to the ambush project tonight.

I'm going for at least 500 words before walking away from the keyboard. This week, my biggest obstacle is the inability to stay awake.

Bunch of necessary AO3 tag wrangling on my own fics, mostly adding tags I'd previously forgotten to or not thought to include. I'm now falling asleep. Frak.

I haven't been checking in, because arms, but I've written alibi sentences everyday, except yesterday (15th) when I wrote quite a lot on my flashfic and alllllmost finished it. (So close!) Another alibi sentence and a little editing today (16th).

Biggest obstacle: my arms hurt and I'm trying to stay AFK as much as poss. :-(

My exhaustion is my biggest obstacle.

I wrote 126 original words yesterday but the power went out before I could log in. I wrote 163 today on a fanfic

Right now, it seems to be that I'm only collecting fragments of story, rather than having something more fully formed appear where I can write a nice big chunk and feel like it's progress, rather than writing a small chunk that I know is going to weave into the plot soon, but the pathway isn't clear.

There was still writing today.

Sorry for not checking in for so long. I'm finally over my bout of flu but still have only little energy, and my writing mojo seems to have suffered badly through this. I've written every day, but most days have been alibi sentences only. On the 13th I finally started working at an original story again and even managed over 500 words on that day, but since that, I'm back to alibi sentences, although at least on that story. What frustrates me perhaps most is that although I'm getting daily new prompts through the B2MeM bingo, I don't have any ideas and no inspiration at all, which is a wretched feeling. I can't remember the last time when it's been like this.

252 words of surprise femslash happened!

I guess my biggest obstacle at the moment is my own woeful lack of time management skills, so that even though I have lots of time, it gets hard to effectively divide my time between writing related things, job search, and studying by which I try to get new skills; and then I occasionally spend a lot of time on things like looking up pretty vintage clothes I can't afford anyway, or getting obsessive about my reading. Also the trepidation I feel at moving forward with my writing and getting closer to considering something finished. At the moment manifesting itself in not editing and finishing the various fanfic drafts I've written, because they don't come with a deadline. I feel less scared just playing around with first drafts and not considering things ready...

75 words today.

Biggest challenge is I'm still liking my fandom but I want to write something good and long... and I'm stuck right now.
