    After hitting my head against the wall over and over again, I FINALLY managed to finish Chapter V, it should be around here soon.
    But I still need to write another 7 chapters, why did I sign up for this anyways?

      Managed to get a couple scenes done for my second untitled fic and a tiny, tiny bit editing/writing on "1:10 to Central." The untitled fic I just need one or two more scenes left, but urgh don't know how to end it! >.>; As for the second project, need to figure out how I'll get scene A to scene B. And oh, action scenes, oi.

        I...started a completely different fic. I had a plot bunny hit me one night, and it wouldn't leave me alone. I already typed up two pages of random scenes for that.

        As for the fic I'm actually supposed to be working on: WHY IS THERE SO MUCH RESEARCH TO DO? I barely look into anything for information with my other fics. Maybe just little canon facts. But this Digimon fic. I'm looking up information about what day April 1 was back in 2002 just to make sure that the characters could not go to the DigiWorld the next day because it was not a Saturday.

        That takes up a bulk of my writing time, with the research on the details. Right now, I'm adding in scenes for chapter three, which the muse and I hope to have done by Saturday. Then it's just a quick rush to finish chapter four by the end of the month, which should hopefully happen.

        If I don't get distracted by so many Let's Plays and podcasts.

        :( to Iqid. You tried. The challenge is definitely making a comeback, though I don't know exactly when (hence the "annual?" in the title). You can try again then, and just keep writing at your own schedule until then. Good luck on the next chapter.

        Good luck to everyone actually!

        Heh heh Bieber

          9 days left, 7 chapters left, means I will completely fail in this thing... unless I go rushing across the story, but that wouldn't be any good, either...
          Sigh... sucks for me.
          Guess I'll just go outside and go 'WHY DID I SIGN UP FOR THIS?!'... again.

            @Vato: Nevar give up!!!

            Seriously, don't give up, even if the goal becomes obviously impossible. Getting as far as you can is its own reward, because that will give you an idea of what a better goal will be for next time. I don't think PCFF&W has had this manner of contest before, so my first thought was "Man, some folks are going to bite off way more than they can chew. I'd better do the opposite so I don't go insane." A man-vs-self competition like this can make for a great learning experience.

            On that note, I'm having a blast with this blitz. This Digimon story has been stewing around in my head in various forms for maybe four years, and now that it's finally moving along it's like a massive weight is being lifted off my shoulders.

            1000 words into chapter four right now, and itching to write the rest of it!

              This is a completely new contest brought to this section. The idea was brought up two(?) years ago, and at the beginning of this year, I really wanted to bring it to the masses. I expected some people to think up rather impressive goals for themselves. And now, as Magic Legume said, everyone knows for next time what they can do.

              This contest isn't a competition between everyone who signed up. There's no prize for finishing except for reaching your goal; there's no loss for not finishing, except you do gain some experience and still make progress on your story/ies.

              It's the participation that counts. Not only does everyone who signed up and wrote towards their goal helped themselves, but this section got a boost of activity between this thread and the chapters/reviews for those chapters posted.

              I could finish this off with a cheesy saying...

              Or I could add to the wish for Vato not to give up. You still have nine-ish days to write before the month is over. Just keep writing and be happy with the progress that you did make.

                Screw it. Imma pull off a Lebrone and get those rings! Well Imma wright and finish as much chapters as I can in one sitting. Living off of Tim Hortons donuts, ice caps, chinese food, and twinkies.

                Need to write dialogue scripts for the next few chapters then the painful description writing. Grrr. Also I cant do the special chapter. I need 2 authors willing to have their fics, making a special cameo appearances in the chapter.

                Impossible to reach my goal, but still going to murder a few chapters just to make myself feel good. I'm a sick sick person.

                  4,600 words into chapter four, which leaves just one long scene to go.

                  We're approaching the home stretch, people, just four days left! Finish strong!

                  ...

                  I just remembered that once this chapter is done, my goal also includes a gag one-shot. Crap, crap, crap! *gets ready to power through chapter.*

                    Three days left and I haven't posted a single chapter yet, lol. Signing up for this might activated some bad luck charm for me:x

                    Yay I'm on 15,000 words for my personal story, and now that exams are over and the holidays are beginning I hope I can motivate myself to get through a good 5,000-10,000 words!

                    Um, instead of focusing on my written goals I was busy writing a different fic (Avengers 2012 movie verse, noir AU) and about to do another different fic I didn't sign up for. >.>; Still productive writing wise I guess, but got distracted wanting to do other short term projects. :x Also my muse seems to not want to focus on my two other blitz stories at the moment, so I'm not going to force it.

                      Well, I've written... five chapters. Exactly half of what I was supposed to do. And I have to say that it doesn't look all that likely that I'm going to get any more done before the end of the month.

                      Doesn't really matter. It's like seeing a corpse: so it goes.

                      F.A.B.

                        I don't think I'm going to make it either. I only have two days left for writing, and both of those I'm going to be away from the house.

                        Plus Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story is a really addictive game. Darn you, Mario RPGs!

                        Chapter four is halfway done, and the heavier plot stuff is almost out of the way. I just have to write a battle. Really though, I'm glad that I managed to write what I did, especially given the amount of research for this story. Especially since my muse is wanting to get back to writing Pokemon fanfiction.

                          Haven't written much as of late
                          Turns out Pokemon Black 2 was better than I expected... that, and I also spend days looking for a male Mareep!
                          Anyways, I revamped the Fic (again) but I'm still writing. Thanks to those people who told me not to give up. I know I won't reach my goal, but, who cares?
                          After all, there ain't no winner in this right?

                            It's currently 12:17 AM, and that marks the first day of July! And the end of the Writing Blitz. I got one chapter, while my goal was four. Didn't reach my goal. Maybe next year?

                            Didn't finish my goal, which I'd put down to being too darn busy with uni and also getting sidetracked in making a few song parodies instead of my goals. Ah well, it was an ambitious goal anyway. =p

                              So, was anyone else affected by the massive Washington DC area power outage that started Friday night? :P

                              Anyway, I got the part of my goal that I really cared about done, which was two big chapters of my Digimon fic: 13,380 words in all, which is easily my personal best for fanfic words written in a month.

                              But yeah, I lose. :D

                                Yeah, I lose too. I got five and a half chapters done, which basically means I got 55% of the way to my goal. Still, five chapters in a month is better than I've been doing recently, so I can't really complain.

                                F.A.B.

                                  We had a power outage here like an hour ago. It came back on after thirty minutes or so, though.

                                  One chapter a month is something I've been pretty consistent about. I think I might have taken a little more extra time. I blame summer; it makes me lazy.

                                    No power outage here. Just really ridiculous weather. It was thundering when I came home from work, with lightning flashing pretty close. Now, a half-hour later, it's perfectly sunny out.

                                    I would probably have reached my goal if I just didn't get really lazy at the end. I only had six pages left to write, and could have stretched it out to two pages a day. But nope. Video games called to me, and I didn't finish.

                                    This was a fun activity though. How often would everyone like to see this? Once a year? Twice a year? Every other month?

                                    Yup, lost also. Only managed to get one goal done, did a couple scenes for another, and barely anything for my last one. I blame real life, distractions, and my muse not willing to work with me, haha. It's still fun, though!

                                    As for how often, twice a year is fine by me.

                                      Can we all say that everyone lost, and made goals that was some what near impossible. Since we all have things to do irl. Good job everybody, theirs always next time XD

                                      Twice a year would be cool with this imo.
