I've gone from being behind in every RP I'm in and feeling like I can't possibly take on anymore... to be completely caught up and desperate for more to post in. All in the space of a few hours. Just no middle ground with me, is there?

Exordium. All the Exordium stuff I kept getting distracted from this weekend. (Well, I will be once I finish my coffee and catching up on emails.)

I was pleased with what we had but I'm enjoying seeing interest in it picking up a bit.

20XX, because it started well, then died, then I had a tonne of inspiration in the car, and now that I'm home I've forgotten all of it. And then Urthsong. Specifically because I want that 'caught up in everything' feeling.

I have no RPs or such. But I'm trying to get a short story compilation over it's slouch and into a dental draft. That way, if I can't publish it all together, I can always split the stories up and publish them separately. It's tentative title is "The Cotard Delusions." Should workshop that a little.

It's a list of horror short stories:
  • Hostile-About the nature of reality for eight people
  • Our Sycamore Trust-About greed and fear of death
  • Mermaid School-Trippy as all hell
  • Heat Sink-About a failing underwater nuclear reactor.
  • The Cotard Delusion-About the cotard delusion. *shrugs*
  • Tinnitus-About Evil Beings and Ancient Romans.
  • Old Trophies-Serial Killers and Time Capsules
  • Who is there?-About a teacher who is tired of students
  • Deep Dark-Kind of a ecological horror story.
  • Markings in Jade-About the difference between a mental institute and a University.

I'd say it's about halfway done. Convincing someone to publish any part of it will be what I will dread. The concept of actually sending a work off is TERRIFYING in the extreme.

Was hoping to work on the last few posts I own and then focus on prompts but looking like I'm not getting anything done today.

A little bit of Urthsong, while I wait to find out if Skaven-fur moustaches are a thing or not.

Hopefully, considering my mood, the lack of potential interruptions and productivity yesterday means I'll have the first entire morning to devote to the forum and writing in general means I'll get completely caught up here and on my daily word counts. Need to practice getting word-count up because I'd like to use November as motivation for finishing my novel.

Two prompts. Neither of which are sailing toward completion, but you know.

  • Exordium
  • A bit of Urthsong world building.
  • And rewriting that Primordial thing because I think it'll be just interesting and easy enough to use as practice for getting my daily word count up to 5k. I'm barely hitting 3k on the days I manage anything and I'm hoping to use November to rehash a good deal of my novel as well as finish it.

Trying to name a new 1x1 RP.

Lost count of the number of times an RP going up has been delayed because of me struggling to find a name I like.

Just throw the word "omnibus" and a character name together. You're welcome.

Nothing at the moment but after dinner...
  • Exordium (finally)
  • Lost to Light
  • 20XX
...in that order.

My mornings are apparently no longer when I can get writing done this past few days.
