Retired Villainess Transmigrates into a Cannon Fodder Chapter 289
“Zhuo Yu went to visit his grandmother, so I’m all alone in the house.
As such, why don’t we have lunch together That’s right, since I haven’t started the new chapter for my novel yet, let’s have a writing battle while we write later.
What do you say”
Chu Xiang moved over to let him in before asking, “What do you mean by that What writing battle”
Liang Jun turned his head around and looked at her in astonishment, “You don’t know what a writing battle is Ah right, you don’t have any close friends.
In that case, I’m guessing you don’t PK with others online either You’ve been writing by yourself this entire time, huh
Chu Xiang nodded her head as that was the norm in her mind.
It doesn’t take long to finish writing if I concentrate alone, so why bother competing with someone else”
High-spirited, Liang Jun placed down the boxes of different dishes before explaining the rules of a writing battle to her.
Obviously, the more people participated in the writing battle, the more lively it would become.
Even so, it could still be done with as little as two people.
In the writing software they were using, one could open a room and set the writing goal to a certain number of words, and whoever reaches the goal first would naturally be the victor.
Whether one comes out on top or not, they would receive a certain amount of in-game points respectively.
Of course, the participants could also come up with their own rewards in person.
For the more competitive authors, they would gain more motivation when competing with others.
Even the ones who often messed around would refrain from doing so at such times.
After all, everyone was working hard to write something good.
Thus, they couldn’t just mess up the rhythm of the participating authors.
Moreover, Liang Jun even mentioned how competing with others often helped him counter his habit of procrastinating.
Having explained everything, Liang Jun strongly recommended Chu Xiang download the writing software they were currently using.
“I’ll help you install the program later.
You must definitely try it out at least once.
I reckon you’ll fall in love with it.”
At that moment, he took a glance at Chu Xiang’s tablet and exclaimed in surprise, “Were you reading my novel Wow! Did you like it”
“It’s pretty good.” Since the author of the novel was standing right before her, she could not help but ask about the future development of the plot.
“I have only seen around sixty chapters.
Will the main protagonist rebel Does he intend to overthrow the Imperial Marshal”
Liang Jun burst into laughter.
“I won’t give you any spoilers.
After all, it would be more meaningful for you to find out for yourself.
Not quite understanding the reason for his laughter, Chu Xiang shrugged her shoulders and said, “Oh well, I’ll just read it for myself then.
Let’s quickly have lunch.
I also haven’t started writing my chapter for today yet.”
“Then, we’ll really have to eat fast.
You’re still considered a new author, so you must still be writing at a slow pace.
Since you had such an explosive start to your new work, you must definitely maintain the quality of the writing.
You’ll also need to spend quite a bit of time proofreading and editing, right Also, make sure to not be like me and miss your deadlines.
After all, some readers may be put off with your work if you keep on missing the deadlines.” After Liang Jun opened up all the boxes of dishes, he sat across Chu Xiang and handed the tablewares over to her.
Chu Xiang laughed, “I have already written two new chapters yesterday and kept them in reserve.
One of them should have been uploaded by now.
In other words, I’ve made sure not to miss any of the scheduled uploads.”
“Wow, so you’re the type to keep chapters in reserve, huh” Liang Jun said as he gave her a thumbs-up.
“I admire anyone who manages to do just that.
Meanwhile, I can’t keep even one chapter in reserve.
In fact, I typically have to run naked.”
“Run naked” Chu Xiang looked at him in pure confusion as she bit down on her chopsticks.
Liang Jun gave himself a facepalm and replied, “Oh right, I forgot you’re a boomer when it comes to such things.
You really don’t know any terminologies used in our circle, huh In this case, running naked means not having any backup chapters and writing each one on the fly.
Usually, most people tend to avoid this method of writing as it can get quite stressful over time.
Instead, it’s much better to have a chapter that you just need to revise and polish as a backup.”
Staring at him for a few moments, Chu Xiang finally understood his words.
“Why do I feel like you’re just boasting about yourself”
Liang Jun sat upright and burst out laughing, “Haha! I guess I am! In other words, I’m a genius when it comes to procrastination! Even after running naked for so long, I’ve never once had a mental breakdown!”
Amused, Chu Xiang could not help but laugh out loud, “Alright, hurry up and finish your food.
I want to see just how you’re going to run around naked later.”
