My being exhausted all this week has meant that I have gotten barely any writing done. I got the last two scenes of the Big Bang fic that I'd already finished fleshed out, but the less plotty, more smutty one is only half done.

Well, I say half done. It is in terms of word count for the Bang. In terms of eventual story length, I'm guessing this is currently closer to a quarter, possibly a fifth, of the total word count.

Sometime in the next few months, we gonna have us some smut, I tell you what.

*looks at the Yuletide tag set*

. . . I don't think I'm doing Yuletide this year.

Probably just as well; I don't know if I'll have free time in November. But disappointing all the same.

I probably will do [community profile] fandom_stocking, although I don't know how many GB/RGB, Monkees, and/or TGWTG/CA folks it really has, and I'm not really doing much writing outside those three fandoms right now. Eh, I can probably get it together to write a few DW or MCU flashfics, at least.

End of first draft: 29,000 words in 66 pages.

And it never gets shorter in editing, no matter how much I try.

Oh, lawd.

On the writing front, this goofy thing is at just over 20,000 words, and I have four and a half scenes plus the epilogue to go.

And for the first time in a long time, I really want/need a beta. Not because I doubt my writing, but because this is a large and sprawling fandom, and I just can't watch all of it. It's been a long time since I started ficcing on a canon I wasn't up to date on. Given how flexible canon is in this universe, that's not as bad as it might sound, but it's still enough for me to need another pair of eyes from the same fandom. Too bad I don't know anyone there yet.

I have eight scenes from the outline out of an original 14 left to go, and I'm at 12,000 words. If this isn't a novella it'll be very close to it.

It is intensely frustrating to me that people are still having arguments about slashfic 45 years after the first K/S. We're here, we're queer, and we're in ur canons, slashing ur d00dz (& laydeez) - get used to it!

Here we go for another year! Yay!

A fanfic meme, ganked from [livejournal.com profile] calliopes_pen:

I was thinking you should tell me about stories you think I should write. I mean, if you could sit me down for a day or whatever and say, "I want you to write this story for me," what would that story be?

I'm not actually promising to *write* any of these, mind you, but it's fun anyway. And who knows if I'll be inspired!


Hey, I need something to keep me occupied over Spring Break . . .

I wrote two stories for Yuletide proper, and one for Yuletide Madness.

The last couple of years I'd gotten more than one story, so this year when I saw I'd only gotten my assigned one, I was a wee bit disappointed.

I shouldn't have been.

Fandom: Real Genius (1985)
Rating: Explicit
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Mitch Taylor/Chris Knight, Mitch Taylor/Jordan
Characters: Mitch Taylor, Chris Knight, Jordan
Summary:

Chris keeps in touch.



So, what can I say?

First, the title. The title. For those who don't recognize it, that's from Thomas Dolby's "Windpower," which is one of my favorite songs - and somewhat obscure. Choosing a Thomas Dolby song for a Real Genius fanfic? Appropriate. Choosing a Thomas Dolby song that isn't "Blinded Me With Science?" A damn nice touch. Choosing the one that's my go-to- regain-some-faith-in-humanity song? Wow. Just - wow.

Second - this story is well into novelette territory, over half of novella length. And none of it is padding - every scene develops character. And this is mostly about character, although there is a plot and it does resolve quite nicely. The author has a wonderful grip on the canon characters, and develops how they would change and grow over the next fifteen-some-odd years in a completely believable fashion.

Spoilers & sex past this point )

In short: SQUEE! I loved this more than I can properly explain. More, I feel like my Yulegoat cared enough to look at my other fandoms (and possibly my music selections) to draw extra inspirations from. (Note: since I'm not caught up on canon, I didn't list Eureka as one of my fandoms this year, so they couldn't have gotten that one just from the Yulegoat Letter.) It's always so nice when someone puts the time and effort in to do a little research. <3

Yuletide!

Now that I have some writing time, let's see if I can flex a few muscles before finishing the Yuletide fic. Ganked from [livejournal.com profile] zortified:

Tell me about a story I haven't written, and I will give you 1-3 sentences from or about it.

It's that time of year again, so here we go!

Anyway, to sum up, thanks for taking on one of these, and above all, write something you enjoy writing!

Commented in [livejournal.com profile] scarfman's so here goes:

The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request that I write a drabble flashfic of any pairing/character of their choosing [with characters I'm familiar with; if you're not certain, go with your first choice but be prepared to pick again]. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level.
