Huh. Just over a week to go and I've written about 1,000 words for non-related items.

It'd be nice to not self-sabotage sometimes.

I've been writing a book based on Arthurian legends and some ideas of other writers (whose isn't, though?). I've made it to nearly 30,000 words. I'm seeking to do better than last year, which was around 40,000 on a different draft of the same story.

I didn't, but I picked up a freelance editing job instead, so win some, lose some.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I completely gave up. Early on I felt like I had said just about everything I wanted to say about what I was writing about.

I don't think that this is the way that is comfortable for me to work.

For a minute I thought that this was your new Star Wars thread and was briefly very confused with how at odds this sentiment was with what had actually happened.
