One of the things I hate about the way I write is how I labor over every word and crank things out as slow as a snail. But that's not the topic today. One of the things I LOVE about the way I write is how my brain figures everything out while I've got my back turned doing other things. It might be like this for other people but I've never asked around. There was quite a drastic slow down in consciously plotting these past few years, completely expected under the circumstances. Apparently, somewhere in the back of the brain, something was cooking and these past few months there's been an explosion of everything back there coming to the fore.
The Jackalope fic? Outlined, begun, and tying in with Path and the Marriageverse in an unexpectedly epic way. Path's eventual sequel? Shaping up and actually making more sense. Even the 'End Of It All' story that comes at the end of the happy interlude of the marriageverse fics, the whole thing has begun to fit together in my head in the best of ways. While I was off getting a degree, my subconscious created a beautiful monster. I love my little AU-verse! :3
To deal with that thing I hate about the way I write, I'm going to try like hell to reach at least 500 words a day. It's not much, some days I might get more, hopefully never less, but something done is better than nothing. The main things might not see daylight till they're complete but no more distraction fics.
