Well I'm going to have to break off my seven days of Skewed updates, because I still have some more things I have to take care of before I go to Hawaii. So I'll have to spend the next few nights working on those, rather than more story.
It was rather fun, but was making me dead tired expelling so much energy working each night. Several times today I was starting to fall asleep, which isn't a problem I've had at work for the last few months. But more importantly, because it was making me tired it was causing my writing quality to slip. I don't really have much time to work on things at night, there's only a four hour gap from when my shift at work ends and I usually go to bed. Out of that I've been doing other things that needed to be done for the day, so I haven't been getting to writing until after 10, leaving a mere 2 hours for deciding how I want the section to go and writing it.
That's not a lot of time, and it does hurt things. Despite the fact that I treat the Pokegym version of Skewed as a "first draft" copy, which will be revised later, I still try to do some good quality writing. With my last update, the library discovery, I wasn't happy at the end of it at how it turned out. Had I taken more time to work on it, I would have written it more carefully, and it would have been better.
So for now, to keep my sanity, and keep me from being dead tired at work any more and nearly falling asleep, I'm ending the marathon writing. I might do it again sometime, because as I said it was pretty fun, but it will have to be at a time where it will not compromise my writing quality, and not compromise my alertness.
