Writing update

Phew, had planned to make my spn_harlequin fic about 10.000 words in length. Have passed that marker now and the whole third act is still waiting to be written down. I`ve plotted it out already. Could easily be another couple thousand words. Hopefully I`ll have my first rough cut finished by the weekend. That should leave me enough time for the fine-tuning and re-writes. Am hoping to get it beta-ed by at least one fellow writer since it`s my first foray into the subject. *wibbles*

Have checked over on the beta-comm but most don`t offer to do RPS. Which btw, still can`t believe I`m writing it. NC 17 at that. *Seinfeld voice* Not that there`s anything wrong with that. *end Seinfeld voice* *g*

And I will have to post it in a comm where real accomplished writers whose stuff I adore post too. *wibbles more* Well, it`s not like they`re gonna read my stuff but still. Also, someone is writing the same prompt as I which means there`s likely going to be two versions of it: the good one and the sucky one. Three guesses who`s is who. :-p

And when all,all that is finished I have to get started on the reel_spn fic. Dear god, I must have been crazy.

You'll be fine *pats you*

Yeah, don't I know the feeling... *wibbles*

Glad to hear you're making progress though. Me, I'm at least done with my first reel_spn chapter :-)

Woohoo. I have a rough plan for mine but I need to at last draft the other one first.

I know that feeling. :/ But I`ve decided to take the advice of that writing site for the "shitty first draft". Write something down regardless of how stupid it seems.

It`s really easier to rewrite later then to try and write something good in the first place. I guess it`s more encouraging to HAVE something written down.

Oh yeah, absolutely :-) I mean, I go back thinking "What a piece of shit" anyway, no matter how much effort I put into it :-)

That's awesome, though. RPS!

I so get that. I am so intimidated by this idea, that I can never bring myself to post anything that I write. *g*

I think it's awesome that you're writing in these challenges, though. I don't think I've read anything that you've written before, but I bet it will be better than you think. *g*

With my first SPN fanfic I think I debate with myself for days over posting it. I put it in Semagic, the deleted before hitting post, repeated the process and so on. :)

I don't think I've read anything that you've written before, but I bet it will be better than you think. *g*

Thanks. I`m my own worst critic. I write something and it seems okay, then when I re-read the next day I think it`s crap. Rinse and repeat. *g*

And even though I have no problems with understanding English it is often hard to find a good phrase in writing it. Usually I end up trying to write around it and it reads very stiff and awkward. Sigh.

that's impressive : ) I'd never make it this far.

ikely going to be two versions of it: the good one and the sucky one. Three guesses who`s is who. :-p

I don't know, who's the one you're competing with?

I didn`t think so either but some chapters just took on a life of their own. Don`t know if that`s good or bad. Still want a sneak preview when I`m done? :)

I didn`t recognize the name. pesha? But still, the other contestant is little old me who till about 6 months ago didn`t even read RPS. How the mighty have fallen. *g*

yes, of course! I can't really offer to beta, because I don't really have the time right now, though. I certainly let you know what works and what does not, if you want me to : )

pesha?

Don't think I know anything from her. Nor have I ever noticed her. *shrug*

But still, the other contestant is little old me who till about 6 months ago didn`t even read RPS. How the mighty have fallen. *g*

Oh, c'mon, it's RPS! There are certainly less things you can do wrong in that genre, simply because there is no real canon *g*
And you really didn't read RPS before? Wow, there must be tons of stories you still can enjoy... *jealous*

Sure, I`d be happy about any input. After a certain point you simply lose sight of your own writing.

True. And I`ve have noticed Jared being easier to write for than Jensen because I think I`ve a clearer picture on Jared`s personality. Then, maybe he is brooding jerk and Jensen is class clown behind closed doors. :) Don`t imagine so but anything`s possible.

And you really didn't read RPS before? Wow, there must be tons of stories you still can enjoy... *jealous*

Heh, I have a hard time staying on top of reading, with a couple of WIPs as it is. Haven`t read an actual book in forever.
