I hate how when you’re almost at the end of a fic, especially a looooooong ass fic, your brain wants to start making changes and decide that this or this or this would be better or more plausible than what you have, so you start quickly going back to see about that and you’re writing, rewriting, editing, and crying all at the same time.

No, it has not been ‘too’ long.
No, you haven’t ‘lost’ the spark.
You can always get back into writing. All you need to do is write.

I’m lying here, curled up, drinking coffee, relaxing my mind, and suddenly I’m struck with the paralyzing fear that I’ve been writing this story for god knows how long (too long) and no one is going to give a damn about it or going to read it.

This part of being a writer sucks.

The AU thing I reblogged earlier has me wanting to write Rossi x Strauss friendship plus more teen AU ala Joey and Dawson.

And when I was in the bathroom this morning college Claire came back into my head running into law school Frank two weeks after the stairwell.

I also managed to write like 3 scenes of the climax/end of In der Nacht Verschwunden tonight so Sunday has been good for the writer in me.

In der Nacht Verschwunden is at 55,000 words and I am now working on the climax and ending.  Most of the editing is done (and it was no easy feat once I realized Jessie should’ve been a Duchess instead of a lady and had to go back and change them all manually since I didnt want all the m’ladys to become m’duchesses).

Anyhoo, will spend time tomorrow typing up more of the escape from the castle of evil and try to figure out a way to write at least a semi-action sequence for the take down of Frank.  I am soooooo not good at that.  But I’m close guys, I can taste the end of this…finally.  I cant wait to get it out to the beta and start the journey toward giving it to the world.

In other news, #1201 is done.  That is so my life.

I wish I was writing this story for one of the LJ bigbangs I used to participate in…then I’d get some banging artwork.

I’d make some myself but I dont have that kind of talent.  I might attempt something though.

If you have any young friends who aspire to become writers, the second greatest favor you can do them is to present them with copies of The Elements of Style. The first greatest, of course, is to shoot them now, while they’re happy.

I haven’t even finished #1200 but I’m nearly finished #1201. That’s how I roll I guess.

Some writers need a while to charge their batteries, and then write their books very rapidly. Some writers write a page or so every day, rain or shine. Some writers run out of steam, and need to do whatever it is they happen to do until they’re ready to write again.

I took some Ambien, was about to slide into bed, and seven year old Penelope popped into my head.  She wants to tell a story and I want to listen but I gotta get some sleep.  So I wrote out a page and have to pray for the rest to still be there in the morning.
