I need to be a better "boss" to myself with writing. I keep stepping into pitfalls with procrastination and excuses... "But I have to do X this week so I don't have time to write!" Writing is hard. :help:

Going full Mulan here and definitely going to climb to the top :angry2:

SO, I was having my brother read over my first couple chapters so I could make sure things were clear, get some feedback and whatnot.

he came across this gem of a line and both of us died from laughing.

(it was supposed to be cheeks)

Guys, it's like 2 weeks from NaNoWriMo.

:eek:

related to that, how do I outline things.

I googled it and they all seem to explain things as if one should have a basic idea of what an outline is and >.>

I was gonna be all planner this year instead of pantser

I think you showed me this before! (Someone did, at least.)

I'm gonna sit and read it again, I think last time someone showed me it I was already hip deep in story and didn't wanna try an outline.

(Thanks :o)

Day Nine of Nano: 50,019.

Aww. Yes.

(halfway done.)

Still love these characters so much. I'm glad to finally be reliving their lives again.

I thought this was kind of cool. Apparently, I had just passed the halfway mark today of last year. (Last year vs Today) (Sort of, I haven't done anything today.)
