Go on the humans!
- Aug 15, 2021
There is a dedicated thread on here in which people tracked their word counts. It was quite popular at one time. I've searched for it, but can't find it. Does anyone remember enough about it to find it? As far as I recall it was started by someone who had a red imp-like creature as their avatar.I used to post my progress on Twitter, then I started to do it on Mastodon, but social media is so blah in general. I'll be doing it here from now on.
I thought it was this thread, as I know I contributed to the word count thing at one time, but I can't find any posts on here that correspond to that. I shall continue looking.There is a dedicated thread on here in which people tracked their word counts. It was quite popular at one time. I've searched for it, but can't find it.

I did think it started with sc, but when I tried to check members starting with those letters, it automatically came up with a list including scarpelius (with a green imp-like creature, who hadn't started the thread) so I thought I must have been mistaken. Clearly the list was incomplete.Meanwhile, the red-imp-like avatar -- do you mean scalem X?
Ah, I'm well used to that. That helpful list only ever brings up members who have been active recently. I'm not sure what the cut-off point it, but certainly when I was checking things for the Challenge stats even members who had posted in 2021 weren't there. (And then if you get the name slightly wrong -- "scalemX" for instance, instead of "scalem X" -- it tells you the member can't be found!)Clearly the list was incomplete.
Congratulations, really inspiring stuff. As someone working on their first project ever it's nice to see someone reach such an important milestone. This moment is ten years in the making, but I'm curious: Realistically how would you estimate your second and third installment to come along? If you were to base it purely off what you've picked up.Well, it's been about a billion years since I was on SFF Chronicles, so I guess it's high time to post an update! I am working hard on a YA fantasy trilogy (first book titled When Shadows Fall) and will be self-publishing the first book this upcoming spring. So lots of work has been going into preparing the book for publishing, while continuing to work on the sequels, including website building, email marketing, cover art, editing, formatting and so on. Exciting times as I draw ever nearer to a dream more than ten years in the making!
