I haven't named the story yet, or really planned it out, but I started it. It's set in the Irish Revolutionary period, going through both the Civil war where a massive chunk of the British empire managed to gain statedom, and the resulting Irish Civil War.
Finally starting that storygame, I see. Good luck. :D
I spent far too much time rewriting the first bit of Mice and Men to have subtle references to them being gay, and placing it in Ireland. I don't regret a second of it, though.
I noticed that I can easily make it so I do my second post for the week immediately after the first, so today, I learn that when Roger Casement visited Ireland the last time, he was accompanied by Robert Monteith, and according to his memorial there, "a third, unnamed man". So, perfect if the protagonist wants to do that, he'll fit right in.
Today I learned that in the Easter rising, 17 Irish Rebels managed to hold off an assault of over over a thousand British soldiers, taking out 240 of them with only four casualties. It took the British nine hours to advance 300 yards.
Wow. How did they manage?
They're Irish. A bunch of other cool shit happened, like the distraction force meant to divert British force's attention for a few hours lasting three days. Really, it was great.
My 5000 words a day goal is fucking hard, and I'm only just realizing it now, but I've managed to keep it up, so there's that, at least. 135 words left today, folks.
Again, right in the chat, you desperate need for my attention and approval is sweet, but it gets annoying. Go have a cold shower, dollface.
Yet you continue to desperately grasp for my attention.
Yeah, but I'm just a narcissist who knows all attention should be on him. You, on the other hand, are doing more of a ponytail-pulling kind of of thing where you want the attention specifically from me. It's cute and endearing, sure, but you're old and gross, so I'll pass.
Interesting that that's what you took from that. I don't, in case anyone was wondering, I'm not some creepy, run of the mill Malk.
I thought 1,900 words a day was hard. split between two stories at that
1900's pretty impressive. It should give you a reasonably massive story in a relatively short period of time, so well done.
Holy-! 44.7K?! Damn, Steve.
I told you 5000 words a day. It's been nine days. I'm actually behind, if anything.
I type at a speed of 89 words a minute. That's less than an hours work. More realistically to add pages, I suppose, but not a ridiculous amount more.
How do you think that fast while writing.
Yeah, just write what comes to mind.
I'm a little behind, but I plan to catch up this weekend and later during winter break.
I hit a fucking wall because I need to study for law and that. Gave a rough plan, should be able to incorporate the Easter Rising, the IRA-British War and the Treaty War, so Bucky's getting two civil wars for the price of one. Anyhow, 60,000 words, I think. Roughly speaking, maybe a little under, I haven't checked. Anyhow, I sized up my competition, and I actually see a few key threats among the competition, not even including a handful of unknown variables. Due to exams and post-exam drinking, I won't be able to out-write my opponents to a comfortable degree, and my writing ability isn't a killing blow when facing off, so I'm hoping to crush my opponents through a mixture of having a shit ton of accurate historical information for that appeal while also having the edge writing amount wise, and not taking too big a blow via quality. Still, it all depends on how productive I am on my off days, so I guess time will tell.
Hey, look. It's a cute hedgehog.
Go eat out your own cunt, chink.
242 pages and 67.8k words. I've left to do the Easter Rising, as the path I've done focused on you joining the Great War rather than the volunteers, the Burning of the Common House, and the whole second civil war, the Treaty War. Should be grand, though.
*claps* Surely you'll win with that many words. Your writing isn't complete crap, and with that many words and historical content... Well, I'm screwed.
One can hope.
There is a difference between quantity and quality you know.
I dare say my quantity all has a fair bit of quality.
And I never said otherwise.
