 To all who commented and commiserated and read my story and were generally INCREDIBLY AND COMPLETELY AWESOME during my last post I wanted to say thank you so much! I feel immensely better for having such kind and wonderful friends! Sometimes it seems as though I am just a faceless cog in the wheel of life, chugging along and never really contributing or making a difference in any way, shape, or fashion, so to hear that I'm appreciated and valued is the best possible medicine. So, again, thank you!!

Hey, I got my posting date for the [ profile] spn_j2_bigbang  - June 9th, 4 days into it. I'm pretty happy about that, although it means I'd better revise, revise, revise RIGHT NOW, lol.

Also, my daughter is in the hospital having a baby right now. On Friday the 13th. !!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just turned the first draft of my [ profile] spn_j2_bigbang fic in!!!!! Final word count - 34,500. I'm nervous about the title and the summary and, well, the entire thing (thank God for rewriting) but it is DONE.

Now I need to get started on my fic for the [ profile] darkangel_bb . Aren't you glad you get to hear me whine about that now? LOL. The minimum word count for that one is only 10k, though, so it should be easier. Now I just need to figure out what to write about!

Just 6 days to go until I have to turn in my first draft of the [ profile] spn_j2_bigbang . I only have 3 or 4 scenes to write and I'm not working this week so I can totally get it done. But still ... the pressure's on!

Question: is The Church of the Holy Sepulcher too morbid a name for a story? I think it probably is. Argh - guess I need to come up with something SOON!

Glory, Glory, Hallelujah but I just now made it this far on my Big Bang:

Writing this month has been grueling, but less so than previously, probably because I took lots of days off, lol. Anyhow, the [ profile] spn_j2_bigbang comm just posted a reminder that there's only 60 days left to go, which means that it's time to buckle down and get my shit together.

The plot is coming easier and I'm not absolutely loathing the story as much as I did at the beginning. Still, I'm hoping that it gets better because I'm not exactly in love with the whole thing. I figure I'm around a third to a half finished. Woo hoo!

Now I'm wondering if anyone will read the damn thing because it's a wildly AU RPF that will likely turn out to be GEN with a side of het. I think there are about two gen RPF pieces in all of fandom. Maybe three.

Oh, and a BIG FAT SORRY to you if I, in my dipshittedness, spoiled you for the SPN episode after failing to put a cut in my last post. It's in there now but I only remembered after a couple of you called me on it. DOH! My only excuse is that I wasn't thinking when I posted, a situation that unfortunately occurs quite often (the not thinking not the posting).

I just crossed the 10,000 word mark in my Big Bang and I couldn't be less enthused. I mean, I'm happy I managed to write 10K but I'm in some SERIOUS HATE with this story right now. Nothing about it is coming easy. The writing seems boring and pedantic and utterly uninspired. I have a smidgeon of a plot and some milestones and themes I want to reach, but slogging out the words I need every day has been HELL. Whine whine cry sob. [ profile] dysonrules assures me that such hatred is just what happens with some stories and that I must simply muscle through until the bitter end, but I plan on doing that by complaining loudly to you, my unlucky flist.

By the way, [ profile] calamitycrow is made of 57 kinds of awesome as she put up with my clueless nattering on IM the other day to help me with my plot. Or lack thereof.

So, in conclusion: I managed 292 words today through copious blood, sweat, and tears. My goal is to do 500 words tomorrow. With less blood, sweat, and tears ... and maybe a little fun?

Hopefully my next update will be filled with happiness and joy or at least less misery.

The writing has been fairly low stress so far, as I'm attempting to write at least 200 words a day, and have done that or more most days. So far my word count is ...

If only I could get an actual PLOT sometime soon life would be good.

Just signed up for my first Big Bang. *is skeered*

I can do this, though! I've already started a historical piece, after not writing ANY fiction for more than a year. It's time to get back in the groove ...'
