: I've written 2300 words today on Bootgirl
and it took me a bit over four hours. I am not a quick writer.
I had the idea of setting myself a weekly wordcount and then doing whatever to meet it on the weekends. It got a little bit hamstrung yesterday by me forgetting that I had made plans for yesterday, but I have hit the wordcount I set for this week (7000 words). I need to do that for the next few weeks to see if it really works, and to see if the wordcount is too high to do all the time (or too low and too easily hit if I'm working at a good pace).Reading
: Wild Magic
, Immortals 1, Tamora Pierce. Reread. I heart Tamora Pierce, especially her earlier works, and I'd love to be able to pinpoint what exactly drives the love. I was looking for a comfort read when I picked it up (after having picked up book 4 because it's the one I never read because it pushes plausibility too far for me, and then wanting to reread the whole series again).Watching
: I am sad that Wolfblood
has finished - I liked it, but I only saw 5 or 6 episodes because I'm not often home at the time it's on, and I feel like I haven't seen enough to tell if I think it's really good or whether it just hits some of my fiction-orientated 'kinks' really well (aka shifters and magic and learning cool things). Also, the opening credits are really pretty, like a Maggie Stiefvater book trailer with money behind it.
And I resaw Sweeney Todd
last night, and I still really enjoyed it, and I still found the scene where he competes with Pirelli unnerving, even though I knew absolutely nothing happens in that sceneDoing
: Far too much. Things are kind of going okay, but things are falling off the table as well. Blogging is an issue, for example. Two days doesn't feel like enough weekend. Guitar is slowly improving - I'm getting closer to being able to play I'll be There for You
(the Rembrandts) and Dear Gina
(Seanan McGuire) fluently. Bar chords are better than they were, but I still have moments when they're teh evuls.
The lack of blogging is probably in part me being unable to sensibly navigate the time I spend on the internet, which is something I should keep a far better eye on. Case in point - half my brain is currently begging me to go and check Seanan McGuire's LJ, as if I hadn't checked it yesterday.Links
