[personal profile] azurelunatic: PSA: RTE data loss warning | [ profile] azurelunatic: PSA: RTE data loss warning

If you have the <lj user> tag more than once in your entries, with a user first and then a community, the RTE is eating the data between those tags.

Bug only seems to be occurring on LJ.


I have written almost 4000 words today. Not sure how that happened. Going to finish this entry and see how far I can get.

Tomorrow is my birthday. I will be 22. I have to go to work for 9am (my finding aid is ready to level up, although it will probably need a lot of work after Boss and I go over it), but classes don't start until the 11th.

ETA: By the way, guys. I do not answer my phone if I don't recognize the number. If you have my number and want me to ever pick up the phone when you call, PLEASE email your phone number to, so I can add you to my phonebook.

This message brought to you by someone calling from a 631 number and not leaving a message.

ETA2: If you don't have my number but want it, email me! Though again, please give me your number so I know who the heck is calling/texting me.

ETA3: Broke 5k. I have no clue how, since I just sat around notficcing with myself. \o?
sofiaviolet: NaNoWriMo - easy peasy (nano: no plot)
Words: Well, uh. That's the thing.

Word tells me I have 6180 as of writing this entry. The NaNo word counter tells me I have 6267. This is good, actually, but the discrepancy is really bugging me when it comes to my super-detailed spreadsheet.

I am doing fine with regards to standard NaNo targets, but my personal goal was 2500 per day, and I haven't hit it yet this month. I mean, I have some excuses - burlesque on the 1st, random Amanda Palmer show on the 2nd. And it doesn't help that I'm behind three of my writing buddies right now (of seven who actually seem to be doing NaNo this year). Way to make me feel inadequate, guys (I still ♥ you).

Here, have a quote from the part of the story I'm not supposed to be working on yet:
He ducks his head, bites his lip – he's going to puke butterflies all over her if he opens his mouth, 'I like you' and 'I'm nervous' and 'please be okay with me' and 'please believe I'm okay.'
Perhaps I should do something with [personal profile] brother_marcus? I mean, I am writing his story for NaNo.

sofiaviolet: Dreamsheep with purple fiber fleece (fiber sheep)
I finally caught up with my June targets (one bad day took about a week to recover from), and I'm only about 4000 words behind my 2009 targets. Currently at 10475 for June and 157494 for the year. This is good.

Does anyone still need/want a Dreamwidth invite code? I sent one to an anon commenter back in mid-May and it's still unused. :\

Back to Boston tomorrow. :(

IDK if I want a nap, or to fight through the post-lunch/zomg HOT drowsiness. We took a very nice drive on the way home from lunch, though. Whee pretty houses.

If it looks ugly in IE, I'm sorry.

4118 words! 1% done for the year, and a full day ahead.
sofiaviolet: a laptop, a notebook, and lots of pencils (writing)
Wrote 191681 words in 2008.* Not bad, although my goal was 300k.

Successfully completed NaNoWriMo. Managed an A in my writing class.

* Well, it was probably more than that, but I have no data for January, August, September, or October. Spreadsheet-keeping fail.


Official commitment for 2009 is 350k, over at [ profile] getyourwordsout.

Actual personal commitment is more like 385-410k, depending on how hard I push myself during NaNo.

I have another spreadsheet. It has daily goals (1000 words, 2500 during November), and numbers show up in red when I'm running behind. I find it to be a very effective motivator.
sofiaviolet: Narcissism is about looking in the mirror and going, god, I'd like to have sex with myself. (narcissism)

60683 / 50000 words. 121% done!

I took a little time to gloat to my mom.

I'm already thinking about next year. Not just next November, but all of 2009. I have some pretty ambitious goals (75k in November! 1000 words per day, every day!), but I think I can achieve them. Especially if I count everything that is creative writing. I need to give myself credit for the stuff I write that isn't going to make my parents or my professors proud of me. I'm going to count poems toward my 1000-word daily goals. I'm going to count Lightning War. If I poke it into my computer and it isn't a research paper or blog entry, then it goes into my little spreadsheet.

to do, lol college student edition )
sofiaviolet: awesome (awesome)

:D I set another personal best today, too. 4126 words.

The power went out for a while. Apparently a transformer exploded. All fixed now, though. Also it is almost Thanksgiving and this is awesome even if my parents are not coming to visit.

90% of what I'm writing is dialogue. Or porn. Sometimes both. And absolutely nothing is in the right order. /o\

Hugh had the second knee operation today. They kept him overnight for various reasons, although he's doing well. I wrote about 2500 words in a desperate attempt to kill time. Mom keeps thanking me for dealing with him. What else am I supposed to do?

Set yet another personal best today: 3643 words.

27647 / 50000 words. 55% done!

2644 words today, my personal best for the entire month.

Tomorrow's intermediate goals are: 686 (number of words needed to reach Monday's bare minimum of 28333), 2000 (individual daily goal), 2353 (number of words needed to catch up with cumulative goal and reach Tuesday's bare minimum - 30000).

Did write over 1000 words today, which is better than I was expecting.

Only 882 words today, but I did devote a lot of time to that paper. Tomorrow I see TAI..., and Thursday I finish the paper and start getting back on track for NaNo goals. I'm still ahead of where I absolutely need to be, and I have plenty of empty days to fill later this month.

In fact, I'm going to call it: NaNo winner on or before Thanksgiving. Feel free to point and laugh if I'm wrong.

Forgot to post my word count before passing out last night.

18754 / 50000 words. 38% done!

I suspect I'm going to slow down a lot over the next few days, if not stop completely, because I have a paper to write. And on that note, I should probably go and work on the presentation that is due Wednesday, but has to be done today so my group can stick all our stuff into one powerpoint.

Also, I just got a series of spam emails with "doctor [so-and-so]" in the subject. This would be business as usual, except that one of them was not all that far off from a therapist I really did see back in high school. DNW creepy coincidence.
