I got you added! I wasn't sure what to put for the genre so I just put Adventure. Let me know if you want me to change it.

Uh ... need to remember my password 🤔

Apparently it was the first one I tried
So, I'll be Fluchtpunkt, as usual, with the story burning in my brain for years. It's something quite dystopian.

Yeah, not exactly off to a terrific start here. Sitting around staring at that blank page, brain providing a solid "...uuuuuhhh" - so this could be a tricky month

You're not alone, I'm struggling here, too. I still have a lot of hours left in the day thankfully, but they're going by so fast! Aaaa!

I have a vaguely similar problem I have multiple timelines going at once but they just don't want to properly match up (at least not in my head, yet) as if I had a black hole somewhere that changes time

I messed up yesterday, but hopefully, this weekend, I can fix that. Something unexpected came up yesterday that I had to deal with, which messed me up.

i've got it figured out now.

because i work on a register on the weekends and then have two different groups that meet at the church I've been going to, there's some days where i won't get as much written as the other days. if i can get over the word count goals on the other days, I'll be good. I'll try not to be too twitchy those days.

600 words is good, I need to put in an outline of stuff I want to expand on. formatting will be hell of course, because linear is easier to read... its so easy to write non linear though. U_U
