The final day

~Dawn of the final day - 24 hours remain ~

It is finished! \o/

Who cares only I can understand what I wrote and that in fact, sometimes, not even I can understand it entirely - I made it!

Oh, and epilogues are obviously overrated. This story never had one, the results section was lying all along, it is still lying, maybe, perhaps, a little...

And the last two battles of doom are unnecessary as well; even villains need holidays! They'll be back to kick Lloyd's ass next week, surely.

As for last night/today, I fought and tortured my hands until an unmentionable hour in the morning, only to go to K-chan's place after that, because we had some things to discuss. Then, while we were joyfully arguing over the plot, we discovered some 'tiny' plotholes. Though we fixed those... it spawned another chapter/interlude ;_;!

K-chan, you're cheating! You cannot make your face fall on me, you caaaaaannooooot!

Someone hide me somewhere quick.

Results of today
About 11.500 words.
K-chan's cheater chapter/interlude, end battles and the epilogue still have to be written.

Results of three days of doom
So in the past days I wrote about 21.500 words, while I did all kinds of little other stuff on the side. I wish I could have written more, but nature isn't yet convinced that a day should contain 30 hours.

The next week I'll be finishing the last bits of the script and editing what I wrote. Though it really is rather bare bones at some points now, I am not in the least bit unsatisfied with what I wrote.

So, after some final edits and additions here and there, the script is done :')! I'm satisfied enough.

The second day

~Dawn of the second day - 48 hours remain~

N-No! Stay away!
Waaaaaaaaaaaaah ;_; - oh, um, hi!

Today was strange. I woke up early (7 AM) while my alarm was set at nine, and couldn't get back to sleep - so I wrote. Sadly, I had to meet with some people at university, which means that for a 15 minute chat I travelled three hours... -_-;.

On the bright side, I sketched two character concepts in the bus and train, so now I just have three more of those to go. I'm pretty satisfied with the ones I drew today, even though they oppose the main character in one way or another. I also fleshed out their story/motives while drawing them (I just can't stop thinking when I'm drawing).

I'll work extra hard this rest of this evening and night to make up for it!

Today's results
4000 words written.
2.5 chapters, 2 interludes and the epilogue to go.

The first day

This morning, I realised my impending doom is near.

You see, though I have been working on the script of Locus Magici, because of colds and university deadlines I didn't get too far. But this week, I finally had a little spare time from university. Like many times before, I half-jokingly told my partner, K-chan, that I would finish the script in the next three days. The problem is... she's going to keep me to it this time.

K-chan: I'll be checking it on Friday evening then :D!
Anna: Ahaha...ha...

All right, let's see what I can do!
I am so doomed.

~72 hours remain~
Link had it waaaay easier!
I started with preparations, as for the coming days, I need the utmost concentration to reach my goal. So, I made sure I enabled my 'see no typos' vision, prepared 10 litres of Ice Tea (I live off that stuff, OK?) and quickly dealt with my university-obligations.

Furthermore, I had to make a tough decision: write on my laptop, which allows me to type much faster, yet I have to switch files to see my outline; or write on my desktop, which means I can see both outline and the chapter I'm writing at the same time, but I will type slower.

It was a difficult decision, so I decided... I just wouldn't decide.

When in doubt, go with both!

The desktop shows my outline, while I type on my laptop. And yes, it's pink and it has a :3 face.

Today's results 
I wrote about 6000 words, so I still have three chapters, three interludes and the epilogue to go.

... I can do this! I'll post my day-reports of the next two days as well, so wish me luck!

No Anna, stop deluding yourself, you are so screwed.
