Yesterday's weather: It snowed, it rained, the sun came out.
Today's weather: It was rainy, the sun came out, it's snowing. No, wait! The sun's out again.

I'm getting dizzy.

Also, there's a fascinating topic in today's discussion over at [livejournal.com profile] spn_darkside, [livejournal.com profile] meus_venator's The Thaw, http://archiveofourown.org/works/2058060?view_full_work=true, the first installment of her Iron Ridge Pack saga. Have you read it? Come talk about it. If you've not, come find out why those of us who have read it love it so much.

The Other Human this morning: I'm sorry you didn't get your story in shape for the Sudden Crash.

Me: blink, blink. Blink, blink.

Me: (lightbulb) Ohh! (cracking up) You mean the Big Bang?

OH: (nodding) That. 'Course, from my perspective, what I see is, desperate fast typety, typety, typety, typety, hit SEND, Sudden Crash.

Me: Fair point. More coffee?

So, hi.

I had a conversation with someone in email this morning, and I hope they don't mind my repeating what I said then, here. I've been away from the computer and teh internetz all day, so I'm posting this now.

I want to congratulate all those writers who submitted a draft by midnight last night! I wish you all smooth sailing, good betas, and ready words from this point to your posting date.

See, on Thursday I admitted that I could make word count, if I pushed really hard. But if I'm honest, I still don't have a clear idea of one main character's storyline in this--what do I want him to do? And I've no clear idea of the ending. It's very much something I'm going to have to wrestle with for a few months. I may post it serially on my LJ and AO3. Or I'll almost certainly do those More Than timestamps I've been promising for two years. And the sequel-ish thing to Headlong I've been wanting to write.

So in case there are any of you who visit my LJ periodically and who are waiting on a BB from me? Not this year. But, but--timestamps! Sequel-ish thing! That you've been asking for! And probably BB next year, if Wendy still wants to wrangle one.

Meanwhile, all applause to Wendy for herding cats again this year, and applause to every writer who turned in a draft and has a story to tell. Go get 'em. The artists will be waiting to pounce on your summaries, and the rest of us will all be waiting for your post date!

in the homestretch to finish and turn in your draft by deadline,

May your fingers be swift and accurate, may your thoughts be clear, and may your focus be sharp. Hydrate, walk around every now and then, and don't forget to eat! You can do this! Best of luck!

one, or maybe two steps back. Word count is not mounting very fast, but then I'm converting notes and sketched scenes to actual story, and figuring out where said scenes fit along the timeline, so there's a lot of deleting going on while the actual words are increasing. Hopefully, both elements come out correctly by the deadline. I am now accepting all good wishes and incentives. Including chocolate.
fufaraw: laptop and coffee (coffee and keys)
but I cracked 10K today, after a bunch of revision and deleting of notes and sketched scenes. (Cue sound of small steam engine)

Don't you hate it when you've written (probably) a quarter to a third the way into your BB and realize, 'Oh no, this isn't the fluffy porn I had planned! This is *another* theme about social relevance!' I hate when it does that.

AO3 has a collection of [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang art, fic, vids, and I assume, playlists for Big Bang entries dating back to 2007.

[livejournal.com profile] morgandawn posted in [livejournal.com profile] omgspnbigbang about it here: http://omgspnbigbang.livejournal.com/252041.html. There are links in her post so you can check out the comm at AO3. They're encouraging everyone to add works you've done for [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang if they're not already there!

Summary: Mourning his husband's death in a hostage situation gone wrong, Jared left LAPD and big city crime for the Middlebrook Sheriff's Department, seeking a slower pace and time for his heart to heal. It seems like he's found a refuge, getting to know the locals, but Middlebrook isn’t just the friendly small town he’d hoped for. Murder rears its ugly head, and nothing about the case is clearcut. His nights haunted by nightmares of his dead husband, Jared spends his days working to solve the case. Nothing comes easy, and the gorgeous man with green eyes he meets on his second night in town isn’t making it any easier.

Please remember to comment no matter when you read the story!

The Sheriff's Department was on Main Street, just like the directions said. Jared eyed the one-story brick structure, an enormous contrast with the precinct buildings he was accustomed to. He swallowed and made an effort not to judge before he had a chance to know more.

Beautiful ePub Cover under the cut... )
