As suggested, I'm moving this to /words/. I think I'm going to try to continue posting daily word count updates for the next 2-3 story updates, at least, then either continue, scale back, or stop entirely depending on how I feel at that time.
Also, I'd just as soon story discussion stay in the story thread where everyone is sure to see it, but if there are minor or tangential questions or comments that you don't want to post over there, here will work for that as well.
And today is ~1700 words. Nil yesterday because I read Problem Sleuth in its entirety for the first time. (Highly recommended.) Sure, I could have tried to write the update after that, but it almost certainly would have come out in SHORT, PUNCHY SENTENCES with all the NOUN PHRASES in BLOCK-CAPS.
On the upside, I've been able to daydream pretty much exactly how I want the middle part to go, so I can say with confidence that this update will be ~2,500 words, which is 1-2 more days of actual writing. Expect updates by the end of the weekend.
Also: I am amazed. You wrote that much text in almost no time. Ha ha oh wow. That is a very nice thing for you to say, but trust me, that is nowhere near a satisfactory pace.
Yuugi Route I always thought the requirements for a Yuugi Route are when you drink her under the table and beat her in a game of arm wrestling. Afterwards you need to satisfy her in bed or else you need to begin anew.
Yeah, this thread was supposed to prevent me from going long periods without saying anything, huh? I kind of fucked that up.
For some reason, I always save the hard bits for last, both in work and writing, and they've sort of collided. I'm writing every day, but it's sentences at a time because I'm usually having a hard time staying awake. I'd really like to get it finished this weekend for a wide variety of reasons, so yeah.
I think you should set yourself more realistic deadlines, as in: a long official one, and a slightly shorter personal one. I'm just happy that you're not leaving us. Makes me feel safe to know that the update will come......at some point.
~500 words, but I'm rapidly realizing how useless of a measure that is, so let's just say "1/3 to 1/2 of 2 events written".
>>27 The sad thing is that this is what I do already.
>>8 Yuugi Good End has been in my head for about six months now. If it weren't for the fact that it'd lose its impact out of context, I'd be sorely tempted to just write it now, because it's pretty damn awesome.
>>/underground/5287 but it seemed... superfluous? You got me. My intent was to shed a little more light on Orin's personality, which I guess I did, but at the expense of a huge swath of text with very little relevance to the story at large. Honestly, I knew I should have cut that section (or at least pared it down) from the moment it was finished to the time that I posted it, but a combination of laziness, slowness-related guilt, and the sunk costs fallacy let me convince myself to leave it as it is. I feel somewhat bad about it now, but hey, ULA is offered AS-IS, with no warranty express or implied. Taizou's rudimentary understandings of flight. He even used it in a pinch when clearing the distance during the oni vs. tiger incident; why not there? For the record, Taizou's flight skills require a decent level of concentration and are not that strong regardless, so he really wouldn't be able to slow himself to any considerable degree after being surprised by Orin, especially for a relatively quick fall like that one.
>>32 It is. Ordinarily I wouldn't bother, since it's on Danbooru, but given that this is an official manga and all, I'd like to do my part to make sure that the scanlation ends up as accurate as possible. ご利益 does not mean "responsiveness to prayers" no matter how many dictionaries you misread, goddamnit.
Er, didn't factor Comiket and Fairy Wars into that schedule of mine. (Still haven't unlocked Extra playing Normal. Paths that end with Star Sapphire are brutal.) The rest of this week is vacation, so I'll be sure to finish at least one update within that span, with daily progress updates here so as to be sure that I'm sure.
>>34 Not of doujins. I mostly do one-shot comics on Danbooru, which require a limited time commitment and rarely strain my limited knowledge of the language.
>>42 Not sure how I missed this for 3 days; my bad.
But yeah, it's the usual; fortunately, I am going to be indisposed to the world (and the internet) for the next few days, leaving me little to do but write or sleep, so I still plan on making this 2-week deadline that seems to have fallen into place.
>>46 September 18th See, that's the reason I'm not following the story until it's over. I know I might be missing out lots of stuff by doing so, but having to re-read the last two threads to remember what was going on is a huge setback.
