Word count: 642 - A meager word count and I only manage to write a book review. No comment.

Obviously, I already screwed up my resolution and I skipped a week, but due to being sick and the first week at work being extra hard, I'm giving myself a bit of leeway.
Word count: 4115 - but it's only book reviews and posts for my blog. I think I'm gonna count this toward writing because I haven't written anything substantial for the last six months, so yay, I'm totally okay with writing only reviews.

Goals: Writing chocolatebox fic, I got a challenging assignment but I have a few vague ideas, at least. And, oh, someone requested my super rare ship, I want to treat them so badly, but first things first, I have to catch up on my due book reviews and finish my assignment first.

Also, I think I'm dumping my long fic idea - yeah, I managed to hold on to it for three weeks... - and start working on one of my original novel idea.

So, yeah, I think I should start writing these, because I need some accountability, so I decided to try this. Thanks for [personal profile] hithelleth  for this idea. Soooo...

Weekly word count: 646 - and not even on the same project. *sigh* But I'm still kind of pleased? Due to my depression being a bitch in the holiday season (and due to my dick father), I think it's a miracle that I started to write again.

What I'm working on: The Sleepy Hollow Nick/Ichabod longfic and something for fandom stocking.

Thoughts, notes, etc:  I decided to write a longfic to practice plotting and pacing, because it was four-five years since I've finished my first draft, and since then I'm just wallowing in my depression and being lazy. Of course, I have a couple of ideas for original novels, and I started a few for NaNoWriMos in the past, but they just never get through the first 10 K, which is partly because I didn't flesh out the characters beforehand and I just can't write without fully (or at least almost fully) formed characters. Hence the fanfic...

I chose the Sleepy Hollow fandom because I'm not really on tumblr - they are toxic cesspit anyway - and I'm doing a rare pair (a 'problematic rare pair at that' - yeah I lied, I peeked at tumblr, and why, self, why?), so there's not much pressure. And I like the fantasy monster of the week theme, so I can maybe manage to finish this. I'm not really fannish about season 3, so I set the fic in the near future and I'm totally ignoring canon, so my impulsiveness and wanting to fit every canon detail into the fic shouldn't be an issue. And yet, today, I woke up and just wanted to discard the whole outline, because, you know, the usual self-doubt. Anyway, I'm marching on with this one.

Partly, the situation is the same with the fandom stocking fic, because urgh, why I want to squeeze even a minuscule plot into this fluffy ship fic is beyond me. So I'm stuck with plotting the crime solving thing - and how not to write something like serial killers or a downer kidnapping case for the holidays for someone. What is a good crime thing that doesn't involve a lot of sad? Robbery or what?
