Something Every Day: Season 2

Something Every Day was my attempt to write at least 2k words every day. It lasted for 15 days until I became deathly ill, and spent 2 weeks bedridden on the cusp of dying (probably not, but, it felt like it). To that end, Something Every Day fell to the wayside, and I fell into the deepest pit of my life, compounded by the Quarantine of 2020.

In an attempt to say 'fuck that' to everything that has been kicking my shit, I am bringing back Something Every Day. At least 2k words per day, that is two thousand (2000) words of something. Anything. Be it a short story, a chapter of a long-form piece, or a section of an article.

Numbers will vary, quality may jump or subside depending on how invested I am in an idea, or how well I am feeling that day, but rest assured; Something Every Day will return, and it'll last for longer than two weeks this time.

On top of that, effort will be made to produce at least one SFM render or similar artistic creation per day. These can be anything from 4k renders to simple portraits, but they will happen.

S.E.D: Day One

  • 2000 words of the first chapter of a story set on a glassed Harvest during the post-war years, following a Drifter character and his pet Crawler. Won't post yet, because I don't have a title.
  • SFM of the day:

S.E.D: Day Two

  • 1200 words of a personal project, a crime-comedy named Once Murdered, Twice Dead
  • 1200+ words of a halo story about a Spartan team hunting down a rogue Covenant Supercruiser
  • SFM of the day:

S.E.D: Day Three

  • 800 words of a halo story about a Spartan team hunting down a rogue Covenant Supercruiser
  • 1300+ words of Until The Rain Stops
  • SFM of the day:

S.E.D: Day Four

  • Various projects getting touch-ups, edits, or general love, including cover-arts in the form of SFM Renders with words on them. Most recent of which is two Spartans guarding an ONI Excavation Team as they research a mysterious collection of cubes.
  • SFM/Art of the day:

S.E.D: Day Five

  • Around 1000 words of The Hunt for the Tenebrous Executor and a few hundred words of Artefact. It appears that focusing on SFM stuff is making it difficult to focus on writing. Who would've thought that an increased workload would do that, huh?
  • SFM of the day:

S.E.D: Day Six

  • Today started out so good. I did completed the daily SFM piece less than 3 hours after waking up, was gonna write so much, had so much energy and motivation... and then fell asleep for six hours then procrastinated. It's another day in which the 2k daily word count was spread our over X different projects, with nothing to post.

One of these days that's gonna change, but prolly not today. I did meet the goal, though. You just can't see it. Gonna have to trust me.

  • SFM of the day:

S.E.D: Day Nine

  • SFM/Art of the day:

S.E.D: Day Ten

  • 1800 words of an Epimetheus Programme revival, technically a lot of it was pre-typed, but I wasn't feeling it.
