As of late September 2022, I’ve started posting quick status messages to my dedicated page on status.lol. What I’m going to try to do is compile each day’s statuses and post them as daily posts here.
📺 3:33pm: Now watching the Doctor Who episode “Aliens of London” 😊
📺 4:21pm: Continuing my Doctor Who rewatch with “The Unquiet Dead”!
✍ 4:01pm: Managed to meet my NaNoWriMo word quota (1,781 for today, 43,449 in total). By this point, I really feel like I’m just writing whatever so as not to fail the challenge when I’ve come so close.
🌧 9:22am: Weather forecast: 0% chance of rain today. Reality: it is raining. (shakes fist at clouds)
🌧 12:17pm: Currently 10°C in Melbourne but it “feels like” 2°C. What’s late spring 🤔
✍ 4:09pm: Back on track again in NaNoWriMo – 1,875 words today, 33,389 in total. Forced myself to write a character introduction that was really, really difficult, but now they’ve been introduced, maybe the next bit’ll be easier.
😪 9:49pm: Too tired and headachey to write more than the ~500 words I’ve already done for NaNoWriMo today. Time for an early night, and hope to catch up tomorrow.
😄 6:47pm: Up to 20,063 words, which means… I’m finally all caught up in NaNoWriMo! Now MAYBE I have enough breathing room to make some serious improvements to my outline.
💻 11:14pm: Browsing my Twitter archive that I downloaded last week. So many memories, man 😢
✍ 10:32pm: Fantastic NaNoWriMo day! Wrote 3,125 words, for 18,226 in total (almost caught up!). Today’s scenes have been really enjoyable to write, too. Hope to keep it up tomorrow 💪
🏠 1:51pm: Drove Dad home from hospital this morning! Happy day for everyone, but I think the most excited was the family dog, Gizmo 🤣
✍ 11:53pm: 1,230 NaNoWriMo words today (15,101 total). Tomorrow I get to do one of the few parts I actually outlined well though, so hoping for an incredible day then!
