However, today was still a productive day. While I didn't write, I did write down some important character details for the story, meaning I was still indirectly progressing things.
More than that, I made leaps and bounds of progress while working on a mafia article for the site I play mafia on. I realize that it's not the most productive thing to work on, but it's something that as of Monday I'll have been officially working on for three months (May 29th), with unofficial work spanning longer than that where I had the idea but didn't gather it up until the official date.
It's long-overdue for being written, should've been written months ago, but I have incentive to finish it now thanks to a planned update that I wanna finish the article before goes live.
It's quite the arduous project, but I have chipped away at it for a while and today made a huge chunk of it, making finishing potentially within striking distance. I just need to grasp it.
But, it'll be a lot of work.
I realize it's only work on one specific site. It's not nearly as productive/applicable as things I could do elsewhere.
But that site, that mafia site, is very important to me, and I genuinely legitimately think that my article could do a lot of good. It wouldn't be something to take as gospel, but the discussion it would generate would be itself quite healthy, so I want to finish it, for the sake of the site.
I just need to keep putting the work in, bit by bit.
