july update  
Next up, editing my NPT fic. the tense starts out in present and then drifts to past. OOPS.

9710 / 20000 words. 42% done!

Aha today I actually did about 1K on my Camp Nano project, so that's good. It looks like I'm halfway, but that's a lie, because I have to finish my Marvel Big Bang with whatever words it takes, and you most of the words so far have not been on that. So BACK TO WORK!!

Project stats: (since I have to add them up)
- Ice Demon/Spider: 20095 (start) -- 1095 for day
- NPT bonus fic: 0 start - 1800 final
- Last Contract: 24590 start - 1238 so far
- SW REbeles fic: 0 start - 5578 so far

Tensing, why is it so difficult to keep in one? Honestly, I seem to switch within paragraphs. Hugs for sorting it! Also, woot! on the word count.

If I start in past, I rarely slip the other direction, but I find I can't sustain present for longer fics, especially if there are flashbacks or something like that which already make the constructions odd. Things start to sound ugly and awkward.. .:(

Yeah, present tense is so good to get the action going, but then it 's so hard to make it work longer term. I also find that when I write in it, I want to be brisk. It makes me edit down to the bare bones of a story, but then afterwards, that feels confusing and ill written. :( indeed!

Hugs. With the above said, I've never read a single thing of yours which wasn't wonderful. You have a very clear writing style. I'm mostly free this weekend if you want a fresh pair of eyes to read through a chapter to check for any switches?

aw, that's a lovely thing to say. I know I tend to a pretty stripped down/simple way to write things - I'm not very poetical I guess, so most of the time I feel like I write sort of basic Like, acceptable , but mediocre (so, see, I feel that way and I still put my crap on the 'net, so you should too. *G*)

thanks for the offer! I think I fixed it, and NPT opens this weekend. So there'll be lots of fic to read this weekend. I do have a random Star Wars Rebels fic lingering, if you've seen that? Otherwise, I'm just scribbling on my BigBang so I'm ok. :)

ha, now if only it had been on only one project instead of scattered on four different ones! ...
