NaFEWriMo

- I got through the Kirihara chapter of FAIL after many days of being angry at it and how much I did not set myself up for success with that chapter. I knew it was going to be really hard so I skipped it during NaNoWriMo so I wouldn't lose my insane pace lol. I was trying to match the general wordcount of the other chapters surrounding it (which they had either a pre-battle scene, post-battle scene, and/or something about their past) and this one had none of the above. In the end, this chapter ended up being just a bit longer than Marui's chapter and Jackal's chapter. //willpower to make it work// After some editing though, the Kirihara chapter will end up being the shortest, but it's okay because at least it's in the ballpark.

- An average of 1,000 words a day is good, but that means I won't be getting 50,000 by the end of the month. Come on February, why are you not 50 days long?! I may have to talk to Baba the Badass about a compromise in plans considering this…

1) There are 8.25 chapters left in Part 4 (I did 1.75 of them in November).
2) The chapters are going to be shorter because I want to end things kind of the way the story started - light-hearted, peaceful, exploratory, humorous, where they are in life, and showing their relationships with each other.
3) If the remaining 8 chapters are 4,000 words each, then the final word count will be 46,000.
4) I haven't really thought about Part 4 in depth and I usually spend a few weeks working out dialogue and scenarios in my head before writing them.
5) The story needs to be finished for this to even be possible.

I'm thinking about about negotiating it down to "Writing at least 1,000 words a day for every day in February" so that way I don't feel so forced to make things happen when I'm not ready for them. And I do want to enjoy this last part because there is not SUPER COMPLEX PLOT going on finally.

I'm sure Baba will renegotiate with you, he's not unreasonable. ;)

Poetry is hard. I'm sure you did your best at it! :D

Haha, no he isn't. He's pretty legit. :)

Yah, poetry can be hard. It was semi-abstract poetry about Sirens (mythology) and Penelope... and they had read the Odyssey and seen the movie... and I haven't. I mean, I understood the poems, but their worksheet was really strange and I knew more about it then they did. Lazy high schoolers omg

The chapter was just so much... rage. But raging out loud tends to help me sometimes through things.

There is an outline for Part 4, but it's not very detailed at all. I think when I made it, I just designated whose POV it was and an event that needed to happen. And since hardly any of them will tie in with anything else complex plotline wise, it will be more... flowy. I've been lucky that I haven't had anything turn out like crap. I just do quite a bit of editing once I I finish a chapter.

Awww, but you've been so busy with castle building! *hugs* I'm sorry. Hopefully you'll get some time to write soon!
