  1. I'm pretty sure I'm incapable of NOT writing. Or, rather, I'm incapable of not coming up with numerous stories that I just have to do something with, and writing is the most accessible way for me to get them down and retain pretty much complete control over them while I'm doing so. I mean, with things like movies or podcasts you need a whole crew of people with potentially varying creative visions to get it done. To write a book, you just need a laptop and some time. I can't say I'm in love with the process of writing. It's sometimes exhausting and nearly always hard, but I love telling stories and I can't not tell them. So that's what got me started and that's what keeps me going through all the bouts of procrastination. :)
  2. Missed some check-ins again, but it doesn't mean I wasn't writing. I wrote words! Today's date: [July 12, 2019] Words to add: [4,674] words Today's date: [July 13, 2019] Words to add: [546] words Today's date: [July 14, 2019] Words to add: [3,641] words

  5. I walk around with a head full of ideas for a while, then I open a random doc and dump everything there without care for structure, eliminating contradictions, etc. I just write down all the cool what-ifs, ideas for the setting, character concepts, everything. Then I leave it for a few days before carefully re-reading it and doing my best to separate stuff that could work together from stuff that is maybe cool and deserves to be written down for later use in a different story but doesn't go well with the rest of it. Sometimes I "rinse and repeat" a few times. Once I feel I have the hang on the basic ideas for the story and setting, I start actually planning/outlining it and coming up with more stuff to fill in the holes as I go. Then I start writing and come up with even more stuff. That's the closest I've gotten so far to having something like a brainstorming process. 😅

  7. I wrote words! Or, rather, I've been writing words, a lot of them, and between Camp NaNo and getting sick and life stuff I kept forgetting to record them here for days. I'm so sorry. :( Today's date: July 4, 2019Words to add: [1,360] words Today's date: July 5, 2019Words to add: [767] words Today's date: July 6, 2019Words to add: [1,442] words Today's date: July 7, 2019Words to add: [3,598] words Today's date: July 8, 2019Words to add: [2,769] words I'll absolutely try to do better about recording it all here on time.

  11. @katfireblade Wow, thank you so much for all of the recs! I've only read three entries from that list (the Harper Hall series, which I loved, Shades of Milk and Honey, which I loved even more, and White Cat which I didn't love as much as the first two, but I found it pretty good). The rest of the list is largely unfamiliar to me, and it looks great, so yay for a much bigger TBR! :)

  13. Hope it's okay to make this topic. :) I noticed the club's activity has sort of declined a bit, and I got curious: how is everyone doing with the projects they've started/continued in June? Are you planning to continue the same projects for July Camp (if you're planning to participate in it), or are you taking a break? I'm personally taking a break to focus on a just-for-fun project on July as a palate cleanser. But I've made some very good progress on what has been my main project all June. The goal to start publishing it as a web serial before November actually looks possible now. The first arc pretty much only needs a final round of edits for me to feel brave enough to start showing it to more than beta readers. But I still want to accumulate a sizeable backlog of chapters before I start posting it, just in case.
