    Going to be a failed challenge today. It takes ~2 hours to rush an update through at minimum, and I don't have the encounter rolls back yet. I've got 312 words on who is possibly in the area and why, along with percentage chances for encountering them though.

    Too bad it doesn't count. :(

    That you wrote at all is good. The best way to strengthen your affinity for writing is to do more of it. :)

    Okay, I am back in action! Claiming a 1500 for today, projecting a 3k (and the first full chapter of the first Price book) for tomorrow.

    If it's not too late to join in, I could go for 800 words. Need to get back into the swing of things with writing and this seemed like a reasonable place to start.

    I'm kinda confused about this thread honestly. And I do not know why.

    Sure.

    The idea is to have a community 'writing journal', with the goal of writing a little every day and making it a habit. If you succeed in doing so for at least a week, you get rewarded with a banner.

    The thread died down a bit recently, so I've been a bit lazy keeping up the front page, but if interest picks up again I'll start managing it again.

    Gonna try 1700 words for Friday... which is today I think. Probably going to fail, but it's the thought that counts.

    Plus my timezone seems be off in the site. Maybe. :cool:

    -edit-

    1700 word challenge for Friday complete.

    or not. :p

    knew my timezone was different from the sites.

    Well, I went to go study for tomorrow's exam and accidentally ended up writing 2,000-some words to wrap up the prologue for my worm-fic. So, goal accomplished?

    *Pokes thread*

    It's 00:53, so I'll say 500 words "today" so that I don't forget it. And now, sleep.

    Guess I should plug in that I did 3k yesterday. Hopefully I'll be back to Billy Badass status shortly.

    Righto! When I get to my computer later today I will update everyone's stats.

    Sorry about the delay. This thread got buried in my watch list.

    Well, Kappa Quest is dead. Again.

    On the other hand, my muse has been hitting me over the head with inspiration twice a day this week for An Unknown Being's Otherworldly Adventure, and shows no signs of letting up despite college having started this week.

    813 words today, and I haven't been counting for the previous updates.

    You folks are sorta admirable, working up the motivation to write on any sort of schedule.
    When the stars align, then the concept, motivation, and hour are correct for me to write something.
