I'm breaking two rules with this post. The first rule I'm breaking is the First Rule of 200wad. I wrote about it before. I basically invented it. The second rule is not so much a rule as a principle: don't let yourself become beholden to a task for the sake of the task. I also wrote about this

So here I am, on 200 wad, mentioning 200wad in a post I am only writing because I feel like keeping my streak. To be fair (to myself) I didn't publish anywhere else today. The point of the rule was not to worry about a streak on a website (this one) if you're still doing what you need to be doing: writing on a daily basis.  

The only reason it's all come apart, why I've been reduced to betraying my own principles, is because I didn't finish Part 5 of my Havana series. I need to write a sex scene and I want to do it right - whatever that means. Well, I know what it means. It means not turning it into a candidate for the Bad Sex in Fiction Award. It means taking a bit more time writing, and it also means more than 200 words.

There is also a personal blog I've recently returned to. I'm editing and adding pictures to it today. That's it.

222 ;)

      @lucjah What would you suggest? I'd say "the best and worst in 'writing about 200wad'"

    lmao they say that there are two types of plots people love to witness. The rags to riches -- or the rise to grace. And the fall from grace.

    I love watching you fall from your grace here because I share the same ideology as you. But somewhere along the line i decided to challenge that ideology. And so soon I will indeed be part of the streak club haha.
