I just went in and backed up the entirety of Shattered Bits and Castle Souls and it's currently just over 90k and I'm wasting time with character moments, so this is definitely going to be over 100k. Most of it is honestly filler trash but I'll take it! I don't really care at this point, lol.
Aside from that, I've been making some slow progress on plotting Mechs, but I've taken a bit of a break from it in order to make more progress on finishing the other stupid novel. I need to start plotting out what I'm going to do for KWIF and attempt to keep up my good progress and consistency that I've had throughout January!
writing • write 15,000 words (26,141 / 15,000) • finish Castle of Shattered Souls (current word count: 91,111) • start planning mech novel • write down new ideas (1 / 1) • write RaTs ( 2 / 1)
mech novel • create character sheet for MC (1 / 1) • preliminary sketches for the other members of the squad (0 / 3) • create planet sketches for worldbuilding (2 / 3) • title it please!!
this month has been a SUCCESS! i wrote double my word count, putting me a good buffer for the year already. (yeah its only january lol)
my other biggest accomplishment was consistency. i'm currently at 33 days on 4thewords! not sure how much longer i'll keep it up but it's been good for me so far so i might try to keep going for it. (even if I don't have the wings to keep going for, though it looks like you get nicer ones each month???)
as far as soul bits and castle shambles goes, i finished part 4 the other night, which was supposed to be the original end of the story but things got away from me a bit. but i don't expect part 5 to take too long to write. pretty much will be just the ending. i swear. and then i'll be done and can move on!
also : i accomplished no murdering this month. yay me!

You do indeed get different wings every so often. There is definitely a two month one but I don’t know whether it is every month after that but they just put up a five-year!! set. Congrats on doubling your goal that’s amazing!

another month begins. for the month of february, i'm going to concentrate primarily on KWIF. as of right now, it has no name beyond hot eyeball planet as of yet. it's going to take place in my still unnamed mech universe, though no mecha will be present (gotta save that for the real novel ;]).
i really want to start said novel so i set a goal to try and begin at least the prologue for it (i'm writing that for the luddite challenge, ironically since it'll be full of more space jargon BS than usual lol) this month.
otherwise, i suspect a lot of my time will be taken up with moving, so keeping goals simple: try and keep up with my 4thewords streak and hit my 15k for the month. and i only have 29 days in which to do it! boo february!
writing • write 15,000 words (1,401 / 15,000) • write the prologue in the luddite challenge (0 / ?) • KWIF aka Hot Eyeball Planet ( 262 / 15,000) • finish Castle of Shattered Souls
