|04:27 pm - This Post Is Brought To You By Tiredness And Stress|
Remix story is due on Sunday. I am working 12-hour shifts on Sunday and Saturday. And I am discovering that there is, in fact, a very, very good reason why, under ordinary circumstances, I do not wait until the last plausible moment before a ficathon deadline to start writing.
Current Mood: Tired and stressed. Didn't you read the title?

|02:40 pm - I've Really Got To Finish This Sometime.|
I really, really should be working on my Remix story. But, thanks to RL being extra annoying lately, I haven't managed to do anything beyond picking out a story to work with. And that deadline is rushing towards me disturbingly fast. Meep.
Ah, well. For now, I will instead distract myself with this WIP meme, by way of lost_spook, which tells us to post 7 lines from the 7th page of a current WIP.
I only have one of those, the The-Master-meets-Rumplestiltskin Doctor Who/OUaT crossover thing that has been languishing unfinished and un-worked-on for over a year now. Page 7, as it happens, starts only a few paragraphs into our heroes' -- er, our villains' -- first encounter. Which probably tells you something about why the story's been stalled out forever. Long fic is haaaaaard! And I'm pretty sure I've never before written one where it took nearly six pages for the main characters to even meet.
Anyway. Seven lines (not counting the paragraph break):
The Master grits his teeth against a sudden, violent surge of impatience and forces himself to remain calm. "That 'cabinet,'" he says, "is the most scientifically advanced piece of equipment this benighted planet has ever seen, or ever will."
"Oh, science, hmm? I've seen that. Can't say I was all that impressed." But he pulls the blade from against the Master's neck at last, tossing it casually over his shoulder, where it vanishes in a puff of purple smoke before it hits the floor. "But all right. On the off chance that I'm interested... What is it you want to trade this 'science' of yours for?"
Clearly, no good will come of this.
Current Mood: okay

|09:54 am - Remix Ahoy!|
Got my Remix Redux assignment! And I can see I'm going to have a lot of reading ahead of me, since a quick skim over my assignee's stuff seems to offer lots and lots of interesting possibilities.
Current Mood: interested

Whee! I just wrote my entire intoabar story! It'll still need editing, of course. But it's written! I sat down this morning, figuring I'd at least get started on it, even though I didn't have more than the opening scene and one line of dialog in my head. But once I started it, it just... didn't stop coming. Man, I love it when they do that! And I also love intoabar and its sweet, hilarious character combinations of crack. This one was a doozy, and writing it turned out to be a ridiculous amount of fun. Yayyyy!
