Of late I'm being a pretty one-trick pony. Or one-note song. Whatever.

I've got an outline of the third fic. I managed to actually come up with a plot for it, a plot that lets me hit a lot of things I wanted to address, so I'm pretty stoked. I think I'm going to start writing it tomorrow. I think it'll be shorter than the last one, but not too much. Maybe 15,000 to 25,000.

(Hah, watch me eat those words when I finish it. My initial estimates for the first fic were 40,000 to 50,000, and it ended up 77,000. But I at least have all the basic scenes for this new fic planned out, so all that remains is to actually write them.)

Note that right now I am also:

1. Working an office job. (Part-time, but still working.) This takes up my mornings.
2. Training for my online tutoring job. This takes up some of my evenings.
3. Taking a class at my local university. This takes up my afternoons.
4. Doing in-person basic literacy tutoring and also attending dance class. This takes up more of my evenings.

Ahahahaha well. Hopefully this is good practice for being really busy in the fall. Let's see how fast I actually manage to write, given my schedule.

You shame me. Seriously. I don't know how you can write so much with so much going on. But I'm glad that you do! I can't wait to read your stories. <3

Well, I only started two of them this past week, so when I was writing the other stories I didn't have quite so much going on. :p I really would like to finish this new one before the end of July, though, so we'll see how that goes.

If it helps, what really made me keep writing the second one so steadily was this adapted NaNo spreadsheet someone posted awhile ago at [livejournal.com profile] stbbsupport. It's this spreadsheet where you're supposed to record your writing progress every day and it tells you how much more you have to do and when it estimates you'll finish.

There were some days when I didn't really want to write, but that spreadsheet shamed me into doing it, because I just didn't want to report (even to a spreadsheet :p) that there was a day I made no progress. So I wrote at least something every day, and it went quite well.
