Seriously, was January shorter this month than usual? It feels like it shouldn't be over yet, not at all.
Uh, okay, not relevant.
So...I kinda feel like I do at the end of November, actually, sort of worn out by writing. This is, of course, because I've written over 100k since January 5th. 😅 I wasn't really trying to, mind you; I just wanted to start on the work in question (fan fiction, sadly, but hey, it's more likely to be read than my regular fiction, so...🤷) and I wanted to get it done before the game jam I've committed to entering in March.
And March sounds a long way off, but...enh.
February's a short month, after all, and this thing turned out to be a lot longer than I was expecting it to be, so I'm glad I've put so much time into it in January! Fortunately, I'm closing in on the end now (the remaining scenes are: hero continues reconnecting with his brother, hero gets a tip from an old friend, we get a scene filling us in on what the bad guys have been up to lately, the good guys have a mass meeting to discuss the bad guys, the final confrontation with the bad guys, and then the epilogue) so I hope I can finish it within another week or so. Preferably within the week, though.
Because I had hoped to do another draft of Book 3 of my semi-YA series and maybe even get it released before I have to start on the game jam VN. (Thankfully, the current draft is close enough to ready that it doesn't need a full-on new draft, just some piecemeal work.)
On the other hand, I do feel like this new fandom I'm working in has pushed me in a few directions that might actually help my overall writing quality (esp. in terms of characterization), so that's a win?
This has been a terrible post.
Brain is fried, y'know?
