This late post brought to you by OH LORD NOTHING'S GETTING DONE AND I NEED A WEEK OFF PRETTY BADLY.

I've been writing here and there, though! And have so many ideas I want to write. Let me ask, what's the thing burning a hole in your brain right now, the thing you WANT to write, not NEED to write?

(I really want to get back to this story where A thinks that Enemy B's phone number has changed, so sends him increasingly lovesick texts, not knowing that B is still receiving them...)
  • I want to get back into the OUAT fandom and do a sequel to Passamaquoddy Impromptu. The problem is, I don't think it's going to have the same energy as PI. PI basically took things exactly where I wanted to them. I worry that anything else I might add about what comes next would be roughly as welcome as the epilogue to Deathly Hallows.

    Meanwhile, a new chapter of Under the Radar is at the betas and I started chapter 53 of Unrehearsable tonight.
    • Haha, oh boy, do I feel you about your worries for continuing! It's always really easy to choose to write something that's burning a hole in your head; it's a lot harder when it's something you want to write intellectually but it doesn't have the same urgency. Especially if it's not super-long (ie something that's likely to grind on and discourage you if you don't feel the love) it's generally worth it and I don't think readers feel that lack as much as we sometimes do as writers!
  • I've got two candidates for 'Want to Write': more The Raven And The Nightingale and my 'comfort food' Han/Luke story, which has been languishing forever.

    I also have a burning need to write something political, but have nothing concrete, though I'm sure I'll have plenty of inspiration soon!
    • I'm kind of inspired to write political stuff, but I'm kind of resisting it just because, I dunno, it's too close to reality in the wrestling fandom. Comics are a lot better for writing sublimated political stuff (Seeley is doing some interesting/scary things with Maxwell Lord right now that I think are meant to remind us of certain charismatic horrible people...)
  • I am still working on the Christmas fic. It may not be done until next Christmas but I'm giving myself permission to be okay with that. One thing threatening to derail it is that I've given these memories to Clark and Bruce, of recent times they've spent together and how that has laid the foundation for the shenannigans in the Xmas story. The only trouble is, now I want to write those memories as full-fledged, prequel fics. The yet-another-cruise fic is specially appealing, since it shakes up that formula with Bruce and Selina on a romantic getaway but then here comes Clark...

    Help.

    • BUT LOOK AT ALL THOSE LOVELY IDEAS. Full-fledged prequel fics, that's lovely! And the world is always ready for another cruise meeting, especially if you add Selina! That's an interesting twist! I am 100% here for all that...
