Finally, the antibiotics have kicked in and most of the vertigo is gone.

This means that I really need to get back to working. Knights of Orion will not, unfortunately, write itself.

I will be posting word counts here, today. Probably on this post. Let's put up the start:

Now, the word wars:

#1 -
#2 -
#3 -
#4 -

There may be more but I know I'll get in four, at least.

I need to get moving. For now, I'm going to go get my tea, and settle in for a morning of writing.

Word Wars:

#1 30 minutes: 680
#2 30 minutes: 947
#3 30 minutes: 855
#4 30 minutes: 971

Not bad. More tonight.

Total: 3453

I've been rather ill lately. I'm much better today, but it still knocked me down for a while.

So here's your update.

KoO continues to move. Today, I went to word wars (unlike the last few days. I know. Bad Cat!) and I did some good work, when not distracted by Donald Trump and the Miss California thing.

So, word wars:
#1 990
#2 1087
#3 796 (Donald Trump)
#4 913

This morning alone that's:


Not as much as I need (which is around 3800 per day, every day, for the rest of the month) but I have plans for a couple of wars tonight, so that'll bring my total up.

So, for now, have a graphic, and I will be back tonight:

Not tonight

Not tonight for the word wars again. I think I'm coming down with something.

But, I did get over 2k done this morning in the word wars when I participated. They seem to really be helping in the area of actually getting the work done.

However, I ended up cutting out a scene that, previously, I had thought to keep. Unfortunately, I looked at it today and just couldn't see the reason for keeping it any longer.

So, it got cut, and the plot is now moving along a little bit better pace than it had been before. I'm kinda glad I cut it, actually.

So, tonight's update is a bit sparse, but I'm really not feeling well. I'm not even going to add a counter.

Time for bed, and anime.

I only participated in three today.

But, I did get some decent word counts in.

Let's see:
30 minutes: 1023
30 minutes: 967
30 minutes: 970

In 90 minutes of writing that's 2960. Not bad. (even if it's only 33-ish words per minute)

Tonight, there will be more word wars, since I finished the scene I had been working on. Next, I get to really move a bit more plot along, and that'll help things pick up again.

I might war tonight, but I don't think so. My brain is pretty much done for the day. I can always work on it tomorrow, and deal with things then. Tonight, I think I'd much rather watch anime.

One thing I'd like to note, though. The classes I'm taking have one, small, hitch to them. They're very geared toward romance writing. And while I'm not adverse to writing romance, and have done in the past, my current works just aren't geared toward it. They have romance "elements" but are not, really, romance stories at all.

Which, honestly, is fine. Now that I know that, I'll be taking that into consideration.

It might, actually, deter me from taking the other courses that seemed so interesting. I'm keeping an open mind though, and trying to take away what I can from the course.

Tonight, I might actually dust off my old romance writing and see about fitting it to the course.
