    Oh, so what I just posted should go in that thread? I see now, my bad. I wasn't sure if it should or not. xP

    I was about to say "shit, that's nothing!" and immediately rushed to my latest chapter I've written to verify my claim. I thought I had 44.5k words, turns out that was characters. I'm only at 7700. >.>

    Which worries me, as people are very impatient these days and it seems that if they don't get sucked in with the first paragraph they're gone. But maybe I'm looking at the wrong demographic when drawing that conclusion.

    Well I try not to write chapters that long anymore, since it just takes to damn long to update when you do that. My average lately is around 14k~16k, and I'm trying even harder to cut that in half for my pokemon fic on this site, at around 7k~9k.

    Well I'm almost done with the Prologue for the story I've been working on. I'm honestly kind of nervous cause, well I'm doing whatever I can to make sure the prologue is good enough of a start.

    Almost done with chapter 2 of my new fic as well (minus the proofreading), the only thing trying to stop me from focusing to complete it is my damn flu. And it's going a pretty good job at it :(

    I didn't watch the Super Bowl tbh. I kind of stopped following football after the Seahawks lost. Pissed me off, I really wanted to see them go up against the 49ers again after that last rage-fueled game.

    About five pages, depending on spacing.

    Yeah, I hate them damned Ravens. But they did actually do one good thing for me by beating the Niners. They let the Steelers stay the team with the most Super Bowl wins! Woo! If the Niners had won, both them and the Steelers would have six.

    On another topic, I JUST GOT FIRE EMBLEM: AWAKENING! W00t! My local GameStop got it in a few hours ago! I walked up there since it's only a mile away. WOOO! I still gotta get the 3DS bundle I preordered at another GameStop in town, but I don't mind! I gotta have both! I love FE that much! :D

    Well my last chapter was 7.5k long but I don't think I'll ever compare to NoirGrimoir's amount xD though like Lugion said before a writer should write till he thinks the chapter he wants is ready, basically write it as best you can and when you reach that point where you want to stop then you can regardless of length.
