I'm kinda burned out from writing during the last couple of days. I feel like my brain has been completely wrung out from trying to figure out what will work and what won't. And I discovered a plot hole that was big enough to be hugely embarrassing had it snuck through. So. I'm happy my brain is working and catching stuff like that, but now it's very, very tired. Part of me wants to take a break from the story today, but another part wants to continue and not lose the momentum. There's also the fact that once I'm back at work next week, my writing time will be severely limited.
Also realised late last night that I think I'm going to need to know the canon of a certain plot point on the show, otherwise the story won't make sense and there won't just be a plot hole, there will be a plot canyon. Making sure this doesn't happen would entail watching S04E15 at the very least in order to clarify the details of this development in case it's addressed there. And I'm pretty sure it is. I mean, it must
be for storytelling purposes. Although, with the way TVD drops things, I may be wrong. I really don't want to watch any more TVD. Like, ever again. I know I'm already going to have to re-watch a S4 ep to clarify bits of dialogue and I'm dreading that.
(Hey, did they remove the spell check feature on LJ? What a bunch of jerkwads! Man, the internet really doesn't give a fuck about correct spelling, does it?)
OMG: So for shits and giggles I went back to see what my entries were like for when I was writing my first T/C fanfic and found this:
"I have been diligently working on the story since 10 o'clock this morning, but I can't tell if I'm making any headway or if I'll finish it by the end of today. Maybe by tomorrow's end...? I've chopped some stuff out that wasn't really working and added a few bits to make it flow better, so the word count hasn't changed a great deal: it's up to 11,630 from around 10,200."
Laugh. Ing. My. Fuck. Ing. Ass. Off. I was so foolish, so naive. The completed story ended up tripling in word count and taking months
to finish, not days. I was so delusional. Am I being delusional once again in thinking this story will be 5,000-6,000 words? That's what I originally thought my first T/C story was going to be and then look what happened. (OH GOD. *sobs*)
