Thanks to my damn professor uploading completely unuseable/unprintable slides at 11pm last night, I spent most of the time I had planned to use for writing changing the slides to something I could actually print, let alone work with (I mean, come on! It's 2017! WHO the hell is still using background pictures and word art on powerpoint slides meant for your students to print out and use as an aid for taking notes?!).
Anyway - as I needed to print that stuff this morning before taking off to uni, I only managed to squeeze in roughly 45 minutes of writing yesterday, leading to a wordcount of:

Total Words Written: 158.267

In order to make up for that, I ditched any plans of finally working through your waiting posts and comments today and got a ton written instead, leaving me with:

Total Words Written: 160.568

Which is a lot more than I actually anticipated and I'm not even half-way through with the scene I'm working on :D
I also managed to set up the scene for my next planned piece of plot, so that's finally a step into the right direction as well. WOO-HOO!

I think I'll consider this a very successful writing session.

In other -slightly worse- news: thanks to my surprisingly stupid uni schedule (I actually thought it was a rather nice one while I put it together, just goes to show that theory and practice oftentimes differ WIDELY!) I'll most likely have to adapt my writing schedule quite a bit. As it looks like at the moment I'll probably won't be able to write on Sundays at all, and only for a very short time, if at all, both on Mondays and Wednesdays. So I'll probably loose at least two full days worth of words written each week.... NOT GOOD! Now that I'm finally back on track and with Camp NaNo coming up that's a real bummer (at least I'll have two weeks of easter break in April, so that's a glimmer of hope on the horizon for CampNaNo).
Ah well... I'll find a way to make that work, I suppose :)

And now, I'm off to bed to catch up on lost sleep... zzzzZZZZ

I took the chance and spent my last free Wednesday (YES! Another course has been added to my schedule, cutting short my already spare writing time on Wednesdays even shorter! *rolls eyes*) writing inbetween all the other things I had to get done today.

I swear, for a person who planned to do just two lectures this semester, my schedule has filled up like crazy with all these offered optional tutorials and transcription courses supplementing said lectures popping up left, right and centre. But if I have learned one thing in all my long years at uni: never skip a tutorial, they make life way easier once exams roll around (particularly for things like phonetic transcriptions, which never have been my strongest suit anyway).
Ah well, if that leads to me having to do a bit less studying in June, I'll have to learn to live with sacrificing a few hours of writing each week, I guess :/

On the bright side, I have put into motion another one of my planned story arcs and have nearly reached the next bout of excited romping our boys will engange in ;) So there's that to look forward to writing sometime over the next couple of days.

Depending on how my plans for tomorrow after uni look like, I might finally find the time to start working my way through your waiting comments. If there's not enough time to fit that in, I swear I'll catch up with all of you starting on Friday! Pinky promise!

And now I'm off to bed... (yes! That early! Cross your fingers that I can actually fall asleep at what counts as middle of the evening in my world!)
