So I'm working an event with my mom today, but I also decided it would be a good idea to try and fight a monster on 4thewords worth 1200 words, for some reason.
This was not. In fact. A good idea. Especially since I decided to use my coding/working on this website as the word count. I've managed almost six hundred words so far, but I'm running out of ideas besides rambling in this journal. And I mean, I COULD write something else, but I really wanna work on this site, and I only have so much time before the event starts, or we actually have to start setting up. This is a problem, as you can probably guess, since the monster only has a certain amount of time before it runs away and I get nothing for everything I HAVE written.
4thewords is pretty cool though, I've managed to get quite a lot of writing done with it. Though I with admit, a lot of that was because they have an event going on right now that deals with dragons, and as u can probably tell from this site's name, I do love me some dragons. The creature I'm trying to beat with word count right now is called a. . .*looks it up* Thalamaris. Which is the dragon I'm hoping to hatch, at the very least if I beat this one I'll get a little plush of it for my avatar, which is really cool. I have to get a certain streak (of 444 words) to hatch the egg that I got.
nearly seven hundred eighty words now, I'm getting close.WWhat's something else I've wanted to talk about here, but keep forgetting?
Oh yeah! NOTE TO SELF: Look into making a Count Duckula fan page.
I want to make a page for my Tired Dad Duckula Au, it's an Au where The Count Duckula from the 2015 Danger Mouse is the son of the Count Duckula from the 80s (Count Duckula, not Danger Mouse)cartoon! It's really fun, 80s! Duckula found Junior's (2015!Duckula) egg in his broccoli patch, I'm actually working on a short little comic showing that scene!
Admittedly it's kinda on hiatus right now, since I got into a slump mentally, and then Sonic Frontiers came out and I got obsessed with that, because I couldn't play it for myself(fingers crossed I get it for Christmas!)
Then I started listening to the "Homestuck made this world" podcast, because a streamer I watch was listening to it(Related: look up afacefullofbugs on Twitch, thier (it's two people) really chill, they always sit and chat during the waiting time. Also thier donation incentives are funny noises and THATS VERY GOOD!)
And of course listening to a Homestuck podcast made me go, "Man I should actually try and finish Homestuck this time!" I inch ever closer to the end. I mean, I already know pretty much everything that happens, but I still wanna be able to say I finished it, you know?
But anyway, I was gonna say that all that somehow lead to me getting back into Invader Zim, but I just remembered the actual reason I did
It was because someone commented on my fic! I can't believe I forgot! That made me so happy I(or rather, my brain) was like "I must switch Hyperfixations right now immediately." And I went and looked up word fight so I could actually maybe work on something, but it doesn't work anymore(🥲) So I had to find some other alternative, because of I didn't I was just gonna rewatch the series and enter the Florpus fifty million times and not write
And THAT'S how I found the 4thewords site. Which is pretty cool, it seems to be helping, but we'll wait until the end of the free month(it's like, $4 a month) to see if it's worth it.
Yeah but, getting that comment really inspired me! It's nice to know people like the stuff I do ^-^ I already finished re-writing the first fic from my series, and I've got like 2000 words of the next fic, and a few hundred words of another fic! ^-^
And that's word count! SUCCESS! Excellent.
