    In terms of how close I am...I'm about 5/6ths. I may have added a bit too many extra scenes, so I might have to add another chapter in xD. I'm currently on a break while I write the new Bright World chapter. After that, I'll be beginning editing (well, practically rewriting) the penultimate chapter. Granted, a chapter is around 4,500 words...so it may take another couple of months.

    I've got another (possibly better) idea for a novel in mind (well, out of the many others I have, one sticks out) so while I'm approaching agents etc, I might as well start planning that one in case things don't go as planned.

    Are you guys excited about the awards coming up? I'm certainly looking forward to them, really happy that we've finally published the announcement in the main Workshop - been looking forward to that happening for a while! =D
    One thing I noticed is, previous awards would always fall in the months between when I had a new chapter out, or nominations would end a week before I was scheduled to publish a new chapter. However, the date of the next Bright World chapter falls in the middle of the nomination period...so hopefully people remember that I exist xD

    Just readed your fic and I liked it. The chapter was a bit short commpared to other fics but as said, I enjoyed it.

    When we talk about it's your first Pokémon fic, it reminds me I need to post mine either today or very soon, writing 15 chapters ahead is a bit too much, don't you think?

    I've been in that boat before :P

    The unfortunate thing is that you improve with criticism, so you'll be uploading chapters that aren't as good as the one's that you can actually write. I ended up spending more time revising my old chapters than writing new ones until I caught up to where I was.

    What even worse is that you start and make good progress on an idea, get stuck, and eventually abandon the fic for a new idea, only for the cycle to begin anew [/guilty]

    I think that cycle is the bane of some of the best writers on this site.
    Gama, Flaze and Lugion like this.

    I suppose it can't be avoided. But, my holiday last until the 31st of January so I got plenty of time at the moment. Besides, I need to have something to do, having a holiday is nice and all but not if you don't have something to do.

    EDIT: Currently trying to edit some of the first chapters in my fic since I noticed my writing style changes later on. Shouldn't be long before I post the first chapter, though.

    Yeah I've definitely had some trouble with leaving fics to die I mostly blame it on the fact that no matter how much people plan it, it will all depend if they really want to write it for example if you have to write some parts that you think are boring to write then it'll just make you second guess and you'll put it off for later until you can't anymore.

    I've been thinking for a while about writing a story. I want it to have substance and meaning to it. So far I've got the main character with a group of friends fighting against Team Rocket and another, stronger, villain. I don't want to get too close to the "end of the world" problem, though, so I need ideas on the bad guys goal.

    Just spent the last two and a half hours reading and catching up on fics new and old. And I've still got five more longfics to go that I want to consider for nomination! This awards season is taking it out of me :P

    @Joebro Money and power are always good ways to go in motivating your baddies, but revenge works as well. Team Rocket has always been awfully vague as a criminal organization, so they're pretty difficult to do.

    That's actually the reason I've never posted a fic in WW before. xD; I have like four half-completed outlines sitting around and every time I get motivated to finish, I come up with a completely new idea that takes over until I get stuck on it... and then it doesn't stop... ):

    I want to finish at least one. I was hoping that after I graduated, when I had more free time, I'd get more done, but that doesn't seem to be the case. xD

    Glad to see I'm not the only one.

    Does anyone know if Bulbagarden is going offline Wednesday in protest of SOPA?
