    My chapters keep getting longer and longer... they were about 1,500 words in the beginning, but my latest ones have all been a little over 4,000. If this continues, they might be around 8,000 in the end.

    So, the final chapter turned out to be somewhere around 4,500 words, and I'm very satisfied with it, even if the original main character didn't appear in it at all.

    I don't get it. I've stopped writing for close to two months solid because I couldn't figure anything out for my next chapter, and now that I'm writing it again, it just keeps getting longer and longer... and longer... It's like someone elected Pinocchio to congress and asked him to testify on something, this chapter just refuses to stop growing. I'll probably have to cut it up, it's already about 2x as long as my first one.

    Also, I think it'll be very obvious where I stopped and started again. >.>

    My chapters stay about the same length, but I keep going back and rewriting and editing and scrapping because I'm never really satisfied.

    Why is writing dialogue so damn hard?

    I notice that my chapters tend to get longer as I go on. Maybe because you've gotten through the wobbly beginning stages of the story and really have a feel for the story.

    That also has to do with your own skills as a writer, a chapter getting longer may occur due to the events that happen in the chapter, the description and dialogue used and stuff. After all if you expand on description the chapter will expand as well and if the chapters start to have more events in them they also get longer.

    Just a reminder and as a notice to those that are not yet aware, but the nomination period for the Summer Awards begins tomorrow! (It is being done by New Zealand time, the only proper time for anything to get done :P) If you want to nominate your stories and characters, be on the lookout for the thread that will mark the official start of the season. And if you are not yet aware, make sure you read the current announcement thread or read things carefully tomorrow and ensure you get involved and do not miss out!

    Also, does anyone here regularly chat with @NoirGrimoir? She was meant to be doing our lesson for this month and was going to have it done by the 20th, but has ignored my PM's since then and I have no idea what is going on.

    Pfft we all know Central Time is the correct time to use. Besides since it's Central, that means it is the middle time ;P

    PS: What is the GMT +/- for New Zealand? I know we can look it up but you can also just as easily tell us.

    Damn it! I thought it was eastern time xD

    As for NoirGrimoire, I haven't talked to her in a week I think but I don't think she's been around long enough in the last week or so.

    +12 hours. It's basically where time begins.

    I remembered earlier that I've seen post in Kingdom of Pokemon a few times over the past few days so she is definitely around.

    I'll see if I can get ahold of her.

    Thanks. If anyone is in contact with her, please let her know I am trying to find out what is up with the lesson. I do not like bringing behind the scenes issues into public discussion, but as I have no other means of contacting her and she is not responding to PM's this is the only option.

    Oh dear, I hope Noir solves whatever problems she might be having. :o I can't imagine what's up myself though. I haven't been here much lately due to work and other stuff.
