Current count...

Well, I did my typing of fic. I didn't quite make it to the end of the notebook as my eyeballs were ready to protest staring at iddy biddy words in chicken scratch. Boy, I have atrocious handwriting sometimes. *snerk*

There is still a bit of randomness to go through, but otherwise the massive brunt of the backlog is typed up.

The tally sheet:

Nine fics
6,009 words total
5 PRSPD
1 SPD/B5 chapter (whoo!)
3 A-Team (hey; where'd those come from ;)

Fics ready for posting:
Zero!

Outside of a double drabble, everything is still very much rough draft. (I bounced at the word count of 209 and thought that for *once* I could do an actual drabble. Okay, double drabble. Blah. So picky :) Especially the last couple of ones I typed I up. I made so many typos it was getting ridiculous. And we all know spell check is only going to catch but so much.

So now, a bit of chill time and then eventually bed. Yes I'm up at 2am, what of it. :P

Wow, impressive. :D I know exactly what you mean, except I've never been able to type up more than one fic I've written at a time. Or one chapter, if that's the case. :P and don't worry, I promise you my handwriting's worse than yours. ^_^

And, what are you talking about? 2 am is social hour!

Often what happens is I'll write something up in my notebook (or on a notepad if I'm writing during a meeting at work ;) but I won't have access to my computer right away to type it up.

Or, as is the case with some of these, I'll write partway through a fic or a scene, then get interrupted and figure I'll just finish it up later. Except when I lose track of what I was doing and forget to finish. Oops. Those little problems can be mended though.

2am is happy hour? Lol.

"(or on a notepad if I'm writing during a meeting at work ;)"

[Nods] I know what that's like. I spend about half my class time writing. It's actually great inspiration to have the teacher rambling about... how the test next week is worth 120% of our grade or whatever. :P I have priorities.

Sadly, I have a ton I should type up. I just hate doing it.

I look at meetings this way; if I'm writing fic, I'm at least not passing out in said meeting. hee. The usual weekly project meeting isn't so bad. It's the big once a month meetings and the 'training' meetings that get me. Especially since they typically occur at 9 frickin' am!

I don't mind the typing. Except if I've been spending all day typing at work. That kind of puts a damper on wanting to do fic work. Eight hours of typing is enough.

Ouch. *Hugs* No one should have to type that much. But wow, those training meetings sound tedious.

A large part of my job is data entry. I was shifting away from it a bit until a sudden change left the project team short three people. Now *I'm* largely the sole typist-like person for this project. On one hand, job security, on the other...ow my fingers.

Even so, I find times for little breakys and whatnot. The worst I had was a job about 10 years ago, where I did nothing but data entry for hours on end. It's a wonder I didn't wind up with carpal tunnel.

those training meetings sound tedious

You have the burning desire to know about the FDA's regulations on electronic signatures, don't you? How about HIPPA? (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) I don't have issue with the material but...9am? Who the hell is gonna retain any of that info at so early in the morning? fortunately for me I had prior training on both from a previous job, so I could afford to ignore most of it. and wrote fic instead and yes, I'm being completely lazy and replying from my other account ;)

The FDA has regulations on electronic signatures? That's so not at all interesting. :P Hey, a 9 am meetings beats the 7 am chem lab I had a few years ago. Really glad it was an intro class so all the chemicals where really diluted, otherwise... :P

I have atrocious writing all the time. :D

I'm picky about drabbles. If it's not 100/200/300 words, it's not a drabble or a multiple of a drabble. 300 is also my max of what I'll call any type of drabble. Yes, I am a drabble Nazi, what of it?

Mine used to be good. *wonders when it went downhill*

Drabble Nazi! That doesn't surprise me really. :P Every other time I've done 'drabble' (I'm using the term very loosely here) the muse couldn't seem to stop. It was like the Engerizer Bunny. Worst case winded up at about 1600 words. I guess it wasn't supposed to be a drabble after all. ;)
