After the insane drama of het_bigbang last year, I had decided, 100% and without a doubt, that I would not, under any circumstances, be participating this year.

And then the mod pops up this post, which says that there will be a 10k mini-bang option.

I just. GAH!!! In any case, this is also a PSA for anybody and everybody who might want to participate in this. Despite the angst and all that crap, I had so much fun, and the people in that comm are some of the best people on LJ. /PSA

Happy St. Paddy's Day!

Stolen (again) from [profile] lowriseflare:

Tell me about a story I haven't written, and I'll give you between one and three sentences from that story.

Okay, I give. I gotta kickstart the brain somehow if I want to get the Santa fics finished (which I do), so here we go. From the more-versatile-than-I-can-ever-hope-to-be [profile] lowriseflare:

Tell me about a story I haven't written, and I'll give you between one and three sentences from that story.

Argh, prompt me and help me be less brain dead? And in case you're all, "You didn't even finish all the prompts the last time you did this," those will be appearing in comments this morning. Yep.

I hope you guys all have an amazing Friday.

I'm pondering a few ideas for knocking out these Santa fics. And as I was doing so, suddenly I thought, "GAH." Is what I thought.

Do any of you who write find yourselves, on occasion, gripped by the paralyzing fear that on the off chance you are ever again fortunate enough to compose a quality sentence, there is not a snowball's chance in hell that it will be in past tense?

I was just curious. SUCH A GOOD TALK, THANKS!

And now, moar coffee. So much moar.

So it's September 1st, which means . . . I have less than 25 days to finish this fic for [livejournal.com profile] het_bigbang. *spazzes out* ANYWAY. From now until then, that's where my free time is going, which means that I won't be annoying the crap out of you guys with memes or wtfever.

Until then, I'm tossing out a quick reminder that there's lots of open space in the Christmas fic signup post.

If you're so inclined, hit me with a prompt so that on the off chance I manage to submit this mofo on the 25th, I'll have someplace to redirect all that fic energy:)

You guys, it's almost FALL. I cannot stand my joy!

[livejournal.com profile] irony_rocks has launched yet another comm called [livejournal.com profile] het_banghelp for support, cheerleading, bloc writing times, blah blah blah. Idk if this will actually help me get this damn story done, but I love the idea of communicating with other writers who are in the same boat. Now if only somebody would write Roslin/Adama . . .

I did it!

Yep. )

I did 4 1/2 miles of walking/running both Friday and today and my foot still seems okay, which has me thrilled, but I'm trying not to get too excited. Now I'm gonna clean up the kitchen super quick, pour a glass of wine, watch a couple more eps of S2, and try really hard to realize that perhaps doing this epic writing thing with other people could be fun! *spazzes the fuck out*

I was 100% not going to do this, but I'm home with a sick kid again, and I require brain diversion.

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] lowriseflare, who is so much better at this than I am.

Pick a pairing from any fandom I know (24, SVU, Buffy/Angel, XF, BSG, and anything else you're aware I'm familiar with) and come up with a location and/or situation, and I will write you commentfic about the kiss that happened in that context.

I'll take the first seven (again, provided I know it well enough to write it), but I make no promises re: quality. I'm delirious!

Shamelessly adapted from [livejournal.com profile] sardonicynic's recent post:

Pick a character or pairing from 24 (sorry to be so specific, but it's where my brain is right now), give me some a song lyric, and I will attempt at least 100 words of fic for you.

I know. I didn't write any of them last time. So I understand if you're all just like, PFT. However, my brain is in this mood where it just can't settle down, and I'd really like to find out if I'm capable of writing anything that doesn't turn into a thousand words minimum. I'm teaching all week, so I can mess with these at work, too:)

I think I'll cap it at 12 though, because even that's probably ambitious, given my recent success with prompts.

Crystal, I'm so excited to prompt you I'm squeaking;)

If anybody wants to take me up on this, I'll try. My brain needs something to force it into writing.

Give me the first line of a fic, a fandom, and two characters in it, and I'll write you the opening scene.

Just keep in mind that I don't watch television, which probably makes posting this meme amusing. I can do 24, X-Files, Buffy, Angel, and probably that's it in terms of anything anyone watches now. Pop-culture challenged people should probably not post writing memes.
