Fanfic woes and Waitress
Sunday, June 3, 2007

Ever want so much to finish a chapter for a fic, but have it not come out? That's me for the past 2 weeks. Imagine the worst constipation you've ever had, and prolong it for 2 whole weeks...!

And um, imagine it happened to your brain and not, like, your bowels

- ANYWAY. Just in case anyone cared about my fic Dark Matter. The next chapters will be fanfic constipation. Heehawrr

P.S. I saw "waitress" yesterday. It was really weird to see our captain in something not involving him being well, someone that handles a gun. But, it was very cute and I usually have no patience for romantic comedies.

Then again, I may have only liked it because of the pies. I like pie.

I do read a little. I'm doing what you're suggesting though, taking a break and doing other stuff til the muse latches back on :-)

its taking longer than I thought thought, heh. i hope i'm not losing interest myself!

and BEB, everyone loves a good poo analogy! :-D

You sure ain't alone. Same thing's been buggin' me for months. Only thing I've been able to do is just let it lie, do something else for a little while, and hope I find inspiration in some random source. ('Course it doesn't help that my beta readers always seem to lose either interest or time after the first couple of chapters.)

Do you like to read at all? And not necessarily fanfic - a lot of times, a good book will chop up the block. For me, it was not only a good book or three, but going to see my favourite band live - their lyrics are mighty evocative and the front man is quite the poet. That was a neat feeling, to find long-lost inspiration at a rock concert. ;)

Least you got something going before you got literary constipation of the worst sort. I got the preemptive type:(

Still...I got faith the blockage will clear on it's own soon enough;D

There...done with the bowel analogy:D
