A.K.A: "Does It Count As a Writing Session, If You Only Touched the Delete Key?"

I'm not officially participating in NaNoWriMo, because REASONS. However, I'm shamelessly stealing their progress bar.

764 / 50000 words. 2% done!

This is misleading, as I began today's writing session by deleting/editing/trimming about 200 words from a partially-finished chapter. Also, my goal isn't really to write 50,000 words in November, but rather, to devote most of November to finishing Love Her and Despair or at least getting it as far along as I possibly can.

To that end, thanks to [personal profile] owlmoose , I have officially joined the [ profile] wrisomifu challenge, aka "Write Something, You Miserable F***." Ten minutes a day is all the challenge requires.

For me, I've added two additional stipulations:
  • Writing for work doesn't count. I write TONS for work, but that's all copywriting, writing for the general public, the sort of stuff you find posted on editorials, blogs, and how-to pages. It's missing my creative/poetic spark. Instead, for WriSoMiFu, my ten minutes must be dedicated to LHAD, or at the very least, something lyrical, poetic and creative, just for fun.
  • Editing/trimming/fiddling doesn't count. That's how I fail to make progress: I keep polishing existing bits instead of moving forward. So the word count is for new words, never-before-written words, and that's the only kinds of writing that counts for WriSoMiFu.
