3k words a week. 6735

What timing! I've been looking for some inspiration, and youtube sent me an email that this video was just posted yesterday.

I'm taking up Brandon Sanderson's challenge, and I invite you to join me. I'll be posting a link to a Gdoc every week, of 3k words or more. The reason? Accountability. It's the only thing that ever drives me other than an incessant story that won't get out of my head. I have none of the latter at the moment, but when it comes around I want to be able to write it properly. So, I'm using the tool of accountability via peers to hold me to 3k a week. Thus, I'm making a public thread. Feel free to climb on board.

Bluh. I'll do it. Count me in.

I usually do, but lately I've been dipping as low as 2k words a week this past month. Might as well stop that with this.

My words were all over the place, so I can't really doc them.


I came up short this first week, (2,222) but I feel accomplished in that I devoted time to it, and stuck to a schedule, regardless of a lack of production.

The Face on the Barn (1,028 words)
This is going to become my next publication to Fimfiction. It's not nearly finished, and I'll be continuing it over the next several weeks.

A Dog's Daydream (419 words)
This was just me being bored (and slightly frustrated) when forced to wait for a discussion to take place over things that seemed so simple.

Writing Compelling Pony Characters (775 words)
This is my contribution to my writing panel, or at least part of it. It's not complete yet, but it's getting there.

Also apparently my flash drive that I stored all my pony images on is broken, so I'll be without pony images for a while.

I did really well this week—I'm pretty happy with myself. Except for Sunday, I managed to get at least 1k words written per day.

Glitched (5,089 words
My current side project. I'm on chapter five at the moment (or maybe chapter six…damn, I forget). Anyways, with these additions, it's now nearly a third done.

Dead Souls Never Die (2,912 words)
This is my main project. I'm planning on finishing the whole thing before submitting it to any reviewer; from there, I'll get it as damn close to novel quality as possible before releasing it on FimFiction in full. It's a TF2 crossover, though with some Watchmen elements.

Total Words: 8,001

Well, getting back into the swing of things. This is what I wrote in the last week. It's only a thousand words, though.

I've been doing something similar (trying to write every day for at least thirty minutes) and started >>7197 to help keep accountable. It always helps to have outside motivation.

Sweet Dash pic! gonna have to snag that.


Nice video. Usually I don't have the attention span for these, but this one has a particularly good message. 3k a week is a pretty good goal. I think I'll work on it.

I'm a complete failure so far. Apart from the usual distractions, I canceled yesterday's writing time in favor of preparing for a Shadowrun game, and then I got smashed and sang karaoke with a buddy.

I still have today and tomorrow left, and maybe the weekend too.

I spent so much time reading and hanging with friends and working and reviewing fan fiction last week, I didn't get to write anything at all!


Between today and yesterday, 1800 words of proto-draft, more-than-outline-just-needs-fleshing.

I have no excuse for my other days of zero output.


2500 today counting that outline, 600 of what I've been working on, got distracted by editing but hey I managed to get some to happen.


900 words yesterday. In my defense I wasn't playing games or anything; I was doing roleplaying-related things.

Now I remember why I moved away from roleplaying…

1300 words this week. I shouldn't have written this, but it's words. It didn't break my writer's block either.
This story is bad and I feel bad having written it.

there's a thread up near the top of the page that can direct you if you get lost. It's got a post labeled "Directory" on it. Select one of the links there, and read the entirety of the post it leads you to. basically it will direct you to a review thread, where you should submit your story for review. Different threads have different rules, so be sure to read them. The training grounds is a large dump station for stories, so it's not a bad place to start, but if you're looking for a quick reply, I recommend one of the individual review threads. Oh, and one more thing, be prepared to read a lot around here. We are writers, and as such, we can be somewhat long winded.



nnnnno you should probably go to ponychan.net instead.

Bleeding Rain!DROPScczL2 7292

yeah, actually, that's a better idea. same idea though, just different site

3011 words this week. Whoohoo! Most of it was done today but who cares. I made the 3k mark, so I'm happy.

3962 words this week. I know it's customary to post a link to the words so my fellow peers can look it over, but I think I'm the sole poster in this thread anymore, and I'm entering some of this week's words in an anonymous contest, along with some more I've yet to write.

Oh, hey. Missed my check-in this week. Anyway, here's what I've been writing for the past three weeks. Chapter three is last week's section.

it's a thing I figured out how to do a few months ago. I forgot I had it up.

How do you manage to do that?
