I do the same thing with scenes that go against my novel, Taylor. I mean, it's a form of editing, but I don't see a point in continuing to put work into something that I know is going to get cut. Just move the words to the bottom and keep going.

I also totally don't see it as cheating in the slightest because you wrote those words during the month. Just because you don't want to use them shouldn't pull them from your count!

I feel the same way, Erin. I've just had some people give me grief for it over the years. It's one of those issues that people get divided over.

Mel: Haha, that's perfect. I'm going to start using that.

Thanks, Marie. :D

Your numbers are confusing me. But it might have something to do with the fact that I just finished a thesis with quite a few numbers and dates in it. xD

I liked the ergonomics advice! That's something I tend to neglect...

And I think a few seconds were cut off at the end, in case you didn't notice yet?

Oh, yeah, it was my camera's fault :rolleyes: But, at least all I had said after it had cut me off was 'next week is Crescent Lizzy and good luck.' XD

But, it took like over 2 hours to upload it onto my computer and then onto youtube, so I was just done. XD

Day 22 vlog is up! Yes, I vlog from cars a lot! And I am the worst shifter the world has ever known. I cannot start without the VROOOOOM.

I drive a manual. No, I don't know why I called it an automatic. I have no excuses for past Taylor.

Thank you for answering my question! It was a great vlog and good advice as always. I really do plan to test myself and do some experimenting because I want to increase my writing pace.

Also, your car looks great from the inside. Seeing that makes me want to get a driver's licence. XD

Tina thanks for your advice! I'm doing a rewrite (you probably knew that) and your advice about how long it takes to get a final draft was very inspirational. I agree with it but it can get kinda discouraging/boring since I've been working on this story for over a year now (and I expect to work on it for several more but I'm kinda in a dull spot) but you've encouraged me to try and get my last 15k finishing it and to save GARTN for AugNo!

Unless I'm in a bind and I need more words fast in which case I'll be working on GARTN 'cause it's much easier to write since I'm still at the beginning of it and not stuck in the middle.

Sorry for the wind - it should be okay if you listen closely and/or adjust the volume. I didn't have a lot of time to think about what I wanted to say this time, but I hope it helped a little bit!
