What are you working on right now?

I'm currently 12 Chapters in my Novella The Forgotten Profhecy. Chapter 13 is on my agenda for the week. As well as a One Shot that I want to do about an unknown 4 year that died at the battle of Hogwarts. I also did a 460 word One Shot on a love letter from James to Lily.

2. Hows it Going?

Just a little thinking on how I want Chapter 13 to go, and I know what I want to say in the One Shot I'm doing about the 4th year. So hopefully by Friday I'll have both chapter 13 and the one shot up

What are you working on right now?
Hi everyone. I am currently writing a story called The Girl in the Walls. I've been on a hiatus for a few months to take care of my mental health and try to get my life more or less back into a place of stability, but I'm back!
How's it going?
I mean... I love the story still. But right now I'm struggling with guilt over leaving it unfinished for so long with no updates, and for not letting people know the status. I plan to keep at it until it's done, but updates might be slower than what I used to sort of pride myself on, so I'm definitely struggling to feel as happy about it as I would normally hope!

But hey, one day at a time, right? My recent mantra has been "Two steps forward, one step back," which still ultimately nets in progress. Hopefully I don't disappear for numerous months again:)

It is very strange how writer's block can work sometimes. Took me about 6 weeks to get to 1,000 words. In about 60 minutes this afternoon I've not got that up to 3,000 :LOL:

So... I had made the decision to rewrite the proposed prequel to "Harry Potter and the Philtre of Promise", and have now finally decided to drop the idea after finding so many secondary plot ends that probably should not have been included in the first place. So I took down what I had written (though I saved it 'just in case') and have started on the sequel instead.

Finally finished my latest chapter. I'm not over the moon with how it came out, but having experienced a lot of writer's block with it I'm happy that's it out there now. I'm hoping I don't struggle so much with the next chapter, although I don't think I will as I already have a lot of interesting ideas mapped out for where that one will go.

I've definitely noticed that sometimes I just get stuck on one small thing, and that small thing sets me back for ages because I still struggle with forcing myself to just skip parts and write out of order. But honestly, even just cranking out a bad version to get through it is remarkably helpful in getting through those chunks of writer's block.
I didn't touch my writing my about four months (granted that was more mental health related than writers block), and left a bunch of people thinking I'd abandoned my WIP, but one day earlier this month I just sort of felt like writing again, and haven't been able to stop! It really does come in waves these days haha

So after removing "Harry Potter and the Rampage of Ages" due to it being a total mess, I just posted the first chapter of "Harry Potter and the Legacy of Evil", the sequel to "Harry Potter and the Philtre of Promise." Hope it's worth your time to read and enjoy...

Going a bit different with my next chapter. So far they've all been point of view chapters, but I'm experimenting with the idea of just doing a stand-alone chapter that's basically an article from The Daily Prophet about events that have occurred so far.

I have two questions for everyone:
  1. What are you working on writing right now?
  2. How's it going?
Here are my answers:
  1. I'm primarily working on Chapter 12 of my fic Delicate.
  2. Wellllllllllllllll...it's going. I've been working on it since August-ish and it has gone in about five different directions, though I think I have finally settled on the outline of what's actually going to happen in this chapter. The biggest challenge that I've had with it has mostly been figuring plotting out. This is also a bit of a slow burn and it's sometimes hard for me to tell if the fic is doing what it's supposed to do or if I'm trying my readers' patience. Then I start to question everything I'm doing because I worry that people are going to rage quit my fic. That particular concern has come up especially frequently as I've tried to write this chapter.
1. I'm mainly working on my fic Frozen.
2. I have made the mistake of planning ahead so now there are bits that I really want to write but can't because I'm not there yet.

I’m working on Alison Malfoy and The Truth Yet To Be Told, but not a lot of people read/review, it’s really sad.

Had to adapt my latest chapter as it quickly developed into one so big that it sort of had to be split into two. Not a bad problem to have though, better than having writer's block!

I’m still working on chapter 6 of Alison Malfoy And The Truth Yet To Be Told and it’s going pretty well, I take longer to update because someone said that the prequel’s chapters Are too short.
