Writing Tally - May

I've been kind of slow with the writing lately, but I did manage to write a bit over May.

I started working on some new stuff, even though I've got several WIPs already. I've had some of these plot bunnies for a while though and I wasn't in the mood to work on my WIPs. Two of the plot bunnies are in Smallville, the other is in Supernatural, the first chapter of which I posted the other day.

So, my tally for the month is: 30,487. Well, this is in fanfics anyway. I started working on a sequel to Phoenix, but I've only been writing in my lunch break at work for that. I don't know what the word count is there, since it's all handwritten, but so far it's about six or seven sheets of loose leaf paper, front and back.

I haven't posted too many of my updates. Mostly because no one's commenting on some of them. Not that I'm holding the stuff hostage, it's just that it feels like, why should I bother if no one's going to tell me they're reading? So I figured I'll just wait until I've finished one, then post the chapters. One of the stories I have been posting I just posted the updated chapter to AO3.

ETA: I know we're not supposed to say we want comments but you know, that was what made the writing for me a joy. Lately I'm not getting any joy out of it. I've had people promise reviews but they haven't kept their promises, and that hurts!

My book isn't selling and I had high hopes. I know it's only been a couple of months but considering the amount of stress I face at work, I really wanted the book to work out so I could leave my job and write full-time, before the stress gets to me. The fact that it's not, and no one here gives a shit (I mean here in NZ) and wants to help publicise it, makes me think I just wasted my energy, and 17 years of my life. It just makes me wonder if I really do have any talent at it, or if I should just give up on the writing altogether. Sorry, I'm feeling down and I really hate my life at the moment.

Anyway, lately I've only been posting fairly sporadically, or if I have something I want to get off my chest, so if you don't see anything from me fandom-wise for a while, that's the reason.

That's it from me. Later.
