I found out that writing under pressure makes me hugely agitated and frustrated if I can't get on paper what I had in mind. Plus it takes away all of the fun I have when writing. So I decided to shorten it and doing pretty well, actually! :)

As for this topic...I think a E-ChuuChuu related short story is in order, no? XD (I'll get on that after the NaNo~)

It's a challenge to write a 50k word novel in November.

I'm going fine, I hope I can reach that the day after tomorrow. But I still have stuff to write, I guess that at this path, the whole novel will have 90k words or something like that.

Oh wow. I couldn't do that. Haha~ I can barely finish one-shots. Something with that big is kind of impossible for me. OTL; I hope everyone's doing well on completing their challenges!

I have 2k words left, so I hope I'll finish it today.

And it's not impossible, sometimes I'm not inspired myself, but normally I can solve that just staring to the text for long periods of time. It's hard when you get stuck and don't know what to write, but when you realise what you have done it's really satisfying.

Well, I'm not in the challenge but right now, I'm at 82 588 words, and current script is totally forbidden for those below 18 years old. I said "screw morals" and wrote what I was supposed to :) I will certainly work on a more work safe version then.

Reached 6K and kinda lost enthusiasm at that point. I've still got a lot of ideas in my head and I REALLY need to get those out before I stop writing. So, yeah, no NaNo GET this year, but I don't really mind. :3

If anything, I'm not joining NaNoWriMo this year again even though I'm writing. I started one week earlier because I felt like writing. ( also I had an holiday at the end of October so I would rather spend it writing instead of waiting for NaNoWriMo ). I'm already at 46 541 words, first arc of the story, still the introduction ^^;

Writing just need a little push. Personally I just write for myself, this is something which has incubated for one year so it's getting on my nerve to have it just in mind xD;

That is the best reason to write, I think.
I've felt so discouraged about writing for the past couple of years. It's nice to have a reason to really go for it again.

I'm surprising myself. I never thought I had what it takes to write stories. You know, when you are 7 years old you dream of lots of adventure. But after my 18 and so on, I started to lose that imagination. In a way, it's like putting child fantasy into shape. This time I have chosen heroic fantasy moreover, born from some MSN conversation from last year. I'm also quite happy to have included gay stuff and cross dressing in my list of weird topic.
