So far, I'm doing pretty good with the prompt a day for Nov. There's only 2 prompts that I haven't written for - one is a picture which I'm skipping because I don't like it, and one I just haven't had a chance to write.

But I have a lot of good story starts from the prompts and after this month I'll have a lot started that I can make stories of. Very exciting.

There's one prompt that I love the story I'm creating, and I'm still working on making it into a full story. Out of all the prompts it'll be the first that I post.

Word count is still low ... but at least I have one again.

Today was a good day at work. I'd like more days like today and less days like last week. Today's one of those days when I walk away from work at the end of the day and feel good about what I got done, and am pleased with the way the day went. It's one of those days where I end up working overtime because I'm feeling productive and want to keep feeling that way, and not because I feel like I have to stay to at least get SOMETHING done.

Yup. Today was a happy day. :)

In other news - I want to hit 100,000 words my the end of the week ... that's my goal. I think I should be able to do it!

88,112 / 250,000

My goal for the month was to be done with 35% of my word count. With that done, I'm going to focus the last few days of the month on proofing and playing around with my smallfandom bigbang story that's due on the 31st.

Meanwhile, according to my word count tracker, I am currently where I need to be on MAY 11th to stay on goal for the year. Wow.

Today's word count (and maybe tomorrow's) will be compliments of the birthday challence at NCIS_verse. Once I have all my stories posted over there, I'll make a single, massive post in my writing comm with everything I wrote.

1 story down ... 9 to go.

We now have flex shifts at work. We come to work between 7:30-9:00 and leave after an 8 hour day - between 4:00-5:30. It doesn't matter what time between 7:30-9:00 that we clock in - if we clock in at 7:42 that means our day is over at 4:12. It's flexable day to day and as long as you're at work by 9:00am everyone's happy.

My old shift was 8:30-5:00 ... typically this meant I would get to work at about 8:35 because I am not a morning person.

When we went to flex time, my team assumed the early birds would come earlier and the late risers would be later. The opposite has happened. I have been to work before 8:30 all week, and 2 of my co-workers that used to come in at 8:00 have straggled in at 5 till 9. It's very odd.

Since I worked over this week, I'm using 2 hours as flex time and leaving 2 hours early today (our only stipulation is no one can leave the office before 2pm.) I made it to work today at 8:10 ... I get to leave at 2:10! For me, this is huge. My one co-worker looked at me this morning, looked at her clock, and looked back at me and I cracked up. My boss even gave me a high five for being at work, and looking awake before 8:30 ... which may be because I've probably NEVER managed that before today.

So at 2:10 I get to clock out and start my weekend ... YAY! I have lunch plans, then it's off to get my hairs cut at 3:45 ... I think I've decided on something between the 3rd and 4th picture length wise, but with bangs more like the 3rd picture. I can always trim my bangs shorter myself if they're to long, but if they're to short, they'll torture me till they grow.

Then tonight ... writing. I HAVE TO WRITE. I've been a sick slacker for a whole week, and it has to end.

So I fell short of my goal of having 25% of my writing done by the end of the month. In the last 3 days I've written maybe 500 words ... I'd have to write about 4000 tonight to hit my goal of 25% ... and I'm not even going to try that. I just feel to icky and I think when I get home, writing will be the last thing on my mind.

I'm skipping Zumba tonight. The cold medicine is working on the cold, but it's also making me even sleepier then I would be without it. I don't think jumping around would be a good thing. I am going to get on the treadmill, put my nook up on the bookrest and walk slowing while I read for a while. I can usually get a couple of miles in that way - and it's very low impact. Zumba, not so much. I packed clothes, but I think I'll just leave them at work and they'll be ready for Yoga tomorrow night.

Yup. That's the plan. Make it through the work day and go home. Maybe some chicken noodle soup for dinner.

Bunnies ...

What should I have the bunnies write?

Deeks sick, Kensi being bad at taking care of him
The real reason Tim stayed
AU Tiva angst (based on something vaguely from last night ...)

31,951 / 250,000

I've written my butt off tonight. I'm up 635 words over what I need to stay on goal for the month ... and I'm up 6,678 words over what I need to stay on goal for the year! Which is a ton better then where I was yesterday which was about 1,200 words UNDER where I needed to be on my monthly goal.


Ok ... I'm getting offline now. For those of you watching NCIS tonight ... use a cut - I don't want anymore spoilers. I don't want to know anything until I watch it tomorrow!
whiteink: (NCIS - need you)
Tonight's goal (before Castle) is to get my word count back up to where it should be. I'm almost done with part 4 on my AU Tiva fic. I think I should get that posted tonight and then there will still be an epilogue. If we're all lucky, that'll be up tonight too. I'd wait and post them together, but since it's a separate part, I'd rather they be different entries.

After the epilogue, I'm putting the AU to bed and calling it DONE. Once I see the new episode TOMORROW I'll probably have a million new "AU worlds" ideas.

Reading spoilers about NCIS and the "what if" timeline(s) I can't help but think of Fringe. I'm going to start calling tomorrow's episode (and the resulting fics) the AlterNCIS ... and we'll have AlterMorgue, and AlterBullpen ... and Gibbsnate! (Note .... the Fringe obsession that's coming out ... hehe.

But TONIGHT! Castle!! Yay! Very excited. ALMOST as excited at I an for NCIS because I'm not apprehensive about Castle.

Ok ... back to writing!

Challenges for ncis and anything goes ... check. Now onto writing.

All in all it's been a successful couple of hours since I sat down at the computer at 7pm.

I did make my word count goal for the day ... I now have 5 separate ideas going. I'm sure a few won't go anywhere ... just stretching my writing muscles trying something new. Only one will be a story for sure since it's from a prompt challenge that I'm doing. But it's something!

So I posted 2 new stories on my lj writing comm, imported them here, then realized I had a typo. Not the most fun thing to fix.

And the crossposted entries are WAY down on my reading page. I'm not totally in love with the way it looks. I may just post on both sites in the future, or just link at lj that it's posted here. We'll see.

I think I'm gonna go cross-post some of the stuff I've written in the last few weeks to some lj comms just for the heck of it. After all, my new years plans are chilling on the sofa, and watching the ball drop in a little while.

Ugh ... NCIS is on and it's Ray and Ziva and the empty box thing. I hate that scene. Mostly because I don't understand how Ziva went from "we're not talking" to "he's my boyfriend" to "tell them I'll divorce you" in such a small time. That whole story line was just awkward.
