Using this icon because I forgot to use them this Easter

Holy fuck, I am so blocked. Nothing is coming through at ALL!! No, no--stuff gets written in my head but it won't come out. I sit at the keyboard, stare at the screen and it just seems like too much trouble to type. I'm really sorry about it too, because I *love* the Jared I'm trying to write, and I love their families....I'm not too crazy about Jensen though. Just like PE, I'm really very happy with the characters and where I want to go, and the ending is just so right but I don't feel like typing it. This has been going on for, what, two months?

Maybe I'm done???????

I don't like that idea, but it happens to people. I remember in SV, when I was sure I'd never write again, and then wrote this long-ass story that I really loved...ach, who knows? I give myself until the end of April and if nothing works loose by then, I should probably drop out of the BB. *sigh* If I really think I can't get any of my other WIPs done, I promise I'll tell everyone how they end because I do know how they end. I think the writer owes folks following a story that much, right? Why leave folks guessing if you know how it's meant to end?

Excuse me, I need to ooze out of my chair and flop all over the living room and whine really, really loud before I crawl up the stairs to bed. *SIGH*

God, everyone should have my problems, right?

Writing is hard, yo. No, but seriously. I hope it starts coming more smoothly to you again - and I hope to me too, because this big bang isn't gonna write itself!

Girl, don't you even, I *NEED* your stories!
Mar. 30th, 2016 04:05 am (UTC)
Awwwwwww, bb.
*hugs you*

Just - type crap. Don't even worry about the story, just type about the *character*, what you like ,anything. I bet some story will work its way out.

I am trying that. I have typed crap for sure. Some bits are good but I think I'm just being lazy and not wanting to work this hard. I'm thinking, as goofy as this sounds, to move into another room and change things up. *shrugs, grins*
Mar. 30th, 2016 04:13 am (UTC)
Hey, bb, you do what you gotta do. That's how it works.
*smooches you*
Mar. 30th, 2016 04:18 am (UTC)
Oh cool, then I'm gonna find someone willing to work for literal peanuts and get them to write this shit for me. Incentive--they're mixed in with caramel popcorn and are reeeeeeeeelly tasty....
Mar. 30th, 2016 04:19 am (UTC)
Oh, man.

I am in the same place as you re: Space AU. It's the *last fucking chapter*. I need to finish it. I know what to do. And yet - i don't.
Mar. 30th, 2016 05:00 am (UTC)
Ach, I know--I've been thinking I'd wait until the final chapter to catch up--plus you wrote Bucky, too, right?

It's not just writing, it's reading I need to catch up on, too. I'm all lost and floundering and feel bad, like I've abandoned people who need me to read their stories--stories I love! Oy!

You know what? I need a damn vacation. Shit, I'm gonna put in for a few vaca days in the middle of the week so no one's around and just--do shit. Order pizza for the Fam and tell them to stretch that fucker to last all week because I'm not cooking...hell, they're grown, they know what to do, right?
Mar. 30th, 2016 01:34 pm (UTC)
DUDE. Perfect fucking idea. YES. :)

And i cannot wait until you can read the whole story - i love my Space AU so much!!
And I did write Bucky and Steve. Three 'Bucky recovering' fics and one 'Bucky's Backpack' fic.
(I mean - after Mr. Stan said what he said...how could i *not*??)

*twirls you*

Maybe your muse is telling you you need to reinvent your Jensen if there's something about him you're not crazy about.
Mar. 30th, 2016 04:16 am (UTC)
Ah, you know, this is a slow burn kind of a jerk Jensen and it's hard because it's all from Jared's POV, and even though I know it won't always be like that, I just feel bad for Jared. and now I'm laughing at myself for being too involved in Jared's feelings. Maybe I should just scribble some stuff in Jensen's pov, like a writing exercise or something.

I keep hitting the wrong keys--it's bed time!!
Mar. 30th, 2016 07:22 am (UTC)
That's not a bad idea and might placate your muse. Maybe you could write both POVs but post them as two separate stories: Jared's first, then Jensen's.
Mar. 30th, 2016 02:40 pm (UTC)
Oh I like that idea - maybe if you are in Jensen's head a bit, it will help you get past the stumbling block (even if it isn't actually used in the final version)
Mar. 31st, 2016 02:19 am (UTC)
Yes, I think it might help. It's clear in my mind how he feels but how he feels is a roadblock, so maybe if I get it out of my head...oy! :D
Mar. 30th, 2016 07:53 am (UTC)
I like that idea about writing from Jensen's point of view as a writing exercise. You could even include a part in his point of view if that's do-able and doesn't give out too many secrets. Someone suggested writing parts of the story that you won't actually be including in the story - background, or what happens in parts that you will not be covering.

Mar. 31st, 2016 02:21 am (UTC)
I usually love doing switching POVs, but this needs to be all from Jared's side of things, but writing out Jensen's and getting it out of the way might help me, or using it as a timestamp--ha!--that might work! :D
Mar. 30th, 2016 08:13 am (UTC)
Everyone's given good advice. I got none. What I've got is commiseration. It was so bad yesterday I was truly contemplating never getting out of bed again.

OH had issues with that decision this morning. It worked out. I still haven't written a lick, but I'm out of bed. It's a start.

So, you know, I will if you will.

Also, I *love* your Jaredbunny icon!

We have to get a grip and start kicking this thing in the butt!

Or find a really comfy place to hide. ;D

Take your Jensen on a little vacation. Write him in a SHORT little side trip that has nothing to do with the BB you are writing, and see what he tells you about himself.

You are not done. You can't be, or I will sob.
Mar. 30th, 2016 02:40 pm (UTC)
That's a nice idea too!!
Mar. 31st, 2016 02:23 am (UTC)
Oh! Oh, I *like* that!! Okay, yes, I will try that!

I promise you, I don't *want* to be done, I really don't!
Mar. 30th, 2016 02:42 pm (UTC)
Send me what you have and we can talk about it!! And I like the idea o a couple days off. It's been a busy/stressful couple of months, and you could be just too mentally fatigued at the moment. Hit me!!!

Mar. 31st, 2016 02:24 am (UTC)
I'm so embarrassed, I don't think I've got a single new word! But I've been obsessively tuning up what I do have...it's called lying to yourself about making progress. ;D
Mar. 31st, 2016 02:36 am (UTC)
You shut your mouth! You are not done! I refuse to accept that!

Mar. 31st, 2016 02:51 am (UTC)
lol! you're using my spirit animal against me!

No, I don't want to be done either, I feel their are stories rambling around in my head, they're just being bitches about coming out--grrr!!
