@shirasade thanks! for various reasons dreamhost doesn't work for me, but i appreciate the rec!

@rydia i did ๐Ÿ’— unfortunately i need waaaaay more space than the plans allow for.

i have spent all evening trying to find a new hosting provider for my fansites (since the host i've had for 10+ years doubled their cost, thanks guys)

and lemme fucking tell you, this is just as annoying a process as it was in 2007

i swear to god there is nothing like following a fic that gets updated once a year (MAYBE) (i don't even think it was updated last year??) but each update is *so good* that i don't even CARE

(and also i've been following this fic for, like, a decade?? WORTH IT.)

SCREECHES IS THAT A NUKUME DORI UPDATE IN MY INBOX

GOODBYE PRODUCTIVITY HELLO REREADING MY FAVORITE FIC EVER

@finr mostly, complaining on tumblr that i never should have done it ๐Ÿ˜ญ

serious answer: long experience with writing high numbers of words in short periods of time combined with a strong perfectionist streak. you REALLY have to want to do something like this (and you should not, because it is soul-crushing and a very bad idea in all respects). i am very glad to be done with it.

i spent all day finally pulling together my wordcount stats for 2018 BUT AT LEAST IT'S FINALLY DONE diali.dreamwidth.org/2019/01/1

tbh considering this disaster of a graph is what made me set it down two weeks ago, i'm glad i was able to come back to it at all... charts are not my friend. BUT TODAY. TODAY I HAVE CONQUERED. โš”๏ธ ๐Ÿ“Š

@rydia aha! i'm betting it's dropbox ๐Ÿ˜‘ my projects live directly on dropbox (so i can sync with ios) and sometimes it can be a bit slow to sync. if you keep having issues though send a message to scriv's support, they're generally very helpful with this kind of thing.

@rydia ๐Ÿ˜ฑ oh no! by any chance have you been using more than one computer or ios scrivener? i have that happen sometimes if i'm not super careful with letting it sync.
(also, do you have it set up to backup to zip files as well?)

two minutes later: hey i wonder if it's that add-on that affects every single website i visit that i updated just this morning.................

firefox is doing this fun thing where all my new tabs and websites open to blank pages so i guess it's time to play the "which add-on is acting up" game

so i had a dream last night that, even *in* the dream, was an idea for a new original story. when i woke up i wrote down everything i could remember, along with most of a plot, and even wrote out the ending.

i'm now reading it back over, and while it's gonna need some work, it's not half bad! thanks, dream!me!

ALSO: I HAVE A TITLE. AND CHARACTER NAMES. i don't even have that for the story i've been noodling on for a year!!
