Experiment, Experiment - Or, Do as the NaNo-ers Did  
Yup, Bimo, the notoriously slow ficlet writer is trying her hands at a longer story again. 'Pirates of the Caribbean'. Very mild Norrington/Elizabeth romance, set about 2-3 months prior to the events of 'Curse of the Black Pearl' with lots of Swann and period details. Planned deadline: New Year's Day. If this counter thingie turns out any helpful for focussing on the actual outpout instead of on the permament brooding, self-questioning and deletion of perfectly good text, I'll sure as hell use it for real life projects as well.

I so need to break out of that nice, cozy, slowly suffocating cocoon of self-imposed unproductivity.

Oh, and just in case you are interested in how things are going: All updates on the word count will be posted as comments right to this entry, as I don't wish to spam everybody's LJs with my writing woes ;-)

Wow. That sounds good. I'll certainly read that story. And as far as I know those counters are good, but I think you might need to re-code it every update.

Thank you for your interest and encouragement :-)

I really hope I'll manage to pull through with that story. It's my first longer piece of fan fiction in over a year, so I'm slightly nervous about it.

First draft version finished!

I'm going to give the story a couple of days rest, and then begin with the editing...
