the boys are beautiful

Writing and a little pick-me-up

Hi, everybody!

I figured some stuff out with my lovely Sweet Charity writers this weekend, and we are all in for some gorgeous, dense pieces of fic, courtesy of dark_roast and quellefromage! Whoot!

I've been working on my spn_j2_bigbang fic, and I'm loving it. I think NaNo was a really bad experience for me, since I was producing so much but was happy with only a miniscule percentage of it. And the necessity of writing every day pushed that story into quite a strange shape - the Sam/Sarah bits wouldn't have gone on for nearly as long if I'd been confident I knew how to push the rest of the story ahead. Anyway, the bigbang story marks the first time since then that I've been really pleased with something I'm writing, and I have really missed that lovely feeling. Ahhhhhhhhh.

I still need to revise that sprawling mess that is my NaNo draft, because I do think there's an interesting story buried somewhere in there.

Also, I need to stop punking out and just write scene eleven of my Ben/Dean series. However, I think that can wait a little while I'm still feeling all yay! about bigbang. And I've had an idea for a (hopefully) funny pre-series fic that I think should be fun to write. It's so nice to be back in the swing of things.

I hope you all are doing well too.

And lastly, I just wanted to mention this: The Valentine's Day Game, hosted by the marvelous svmadelyn. Go! Say the nice things you've been meaning to say!
