why is it that when I'm writing and I got a synopsis, I can't expand out the story because I've already got the important stuff in the synopsis and attempts to expand it just feel unnecessary?

For Sale:Baby SHoes, Never Worn might be a great story, but it's a shit book

I think I've forgotten how to write sex. I'm trying not to use profanity, but it keeps going very, very violet. Her inner core, anyone?

Writing a minimum of 100 new words a day in each fic and no editing (well, not much) is going quite well. It's keeping it moving along and not taking too much time out of things. I even worked out an entire 1000 word framework for one of them tonight, so now all I've got to do is expand it and I'll have the first story in the verse and it'll be original, so that'll be a big milestone for me, getting something original actually finished that's quite long.

Now, off to put 100 words into the the other fic.

I got 700-odd words written across two fics. this is good!

I decided that I was going to add 100 new words to each story everyday. That's doable as a minimum.

Twenty minutes to open a coconut (including stabbing it with a screwdriver, and a hammer and on the close floor), then he finds out he doesn't like them.

Know what I hate about writing? You start on one thing then fifty scenes jump into your head and yell "WRITE ME!!YES! THE THREESOME!"


I've never written a threesome.
Researching baby bottle in antiqutity is fascinating. But at least my character technically use a bottle for her son. I've decided to take a leaf out the Nano book and just write. I can worry about everything else later.

At the moment I'm just glad to be writing, especialy after the huge dry patch I've gone through. I'll take what I can get.

I need icons for my characters.

Just spent the evening mirroring my fanfic over on DW. I'll get the Original fic moved over tomorrow. Not sure how much writing and telly stuff I'll mirror, but we'll see. I'm not going to mirror everything old, I don't see the point, but eventually I can see all the fannish stuff mirroring there.

I do like how I don't need to separate long fics up - the post allowance is generous.

It was good for me in one way though, reading through it and seeing the comments. Cheered me up no end, especially given the hassle I'm having with writing at the moment. It reminded me the mental muscles are like physical muscles, give them the workload and they'll strengthen to meet them.

I had the weirdest dream last night. I dreamed that triffids were somehow taking over the earth. I normally kept the one outside my house well-pruned, but on this occasion, I heard the letterbox go and roots are winding their way into my bathroom where Stewart is on the loo, which seems to be his natural habitat. I turned to my mum, picked up my kitchen stool and say, quite matter-of-factly, "Excuse me, I have to beat a triffid into submission." And procced to do exactly that.

Then I'm part of some group who are stopping the triffids and other nasties (they were the Mayor's demon form) from taking over the world. We're on this train where they're planning something and there's fighting and stuff and one of the mayor-things tries to eat me and someone else but we fight it off and we don't stop the train, even though one of the agents is running behind the train (he can keep up. and I was surprised they never told he I had superheroes on the team. He looked like a black actor whose name escapes me. (are there any black superheroes? Maybe I saw him on something?)I think he's one of those "hey!it's that guy!" actors. he referred to himself as Buffalo Joe.

Anyway, there's this huge achor chain (there were three links banging off the ground as the train speeds off and these links were as bigas a man) And Buffalo Joe manages to avoid them.

Cut to Stirling Port Street and some street party is in progress and there's a big triffid up by Nationwide on a float. And some of the carriages from the train are there and that can't be good news. I make a quick call to home and get the machine and tell them to get inside and use the masks (gas masks, which I'd bought on a whim a few weeks ago and had been making Stewart carry his in his rucksack, because I had a funny feeling)

One of the Mayor-things is making some speech about something in front of Kings Street and then I see the triffid about to shoot something out the flower and I run into the Thistle Centre as it does so and there's blast doors coming down on the Thistle Centre and I just make it in. It's little silvery nanobots and people inhale them and it's like a gas attack.

SO it's like half an hour later and my team are sitting dejected on the balcony on the outside of the building (which doesn't exist in reality, there's no balconies) and I wonder why they aren't wearing their gasmasks, then I reason there must be glass or something over the balcony and I can see dead bodies inthe street outside the shops. Just lying there.

I'm trying to get hold of Stewart, but the phones are just ringing. Then I woke up.

SOmeone has to vid this. TVD, Farscape, SPN, BSG, whatever. It's just crying out for a vid.



I had a really nice holiday, went to Northumbria.

Christ on a pogo stick, it's been a weird week. Odd letters from people who don't seem to exist, migraines, cabin fever and new babies.

I seem to be turning into a militant feminist in my dotage )
