Every single time I finish something, my brain goes through the same pattern:
Day X: Finish A. Die from Guh.
Day X+3: Convince self will never write again.
Day X+7: Feel start of niggle of a plot B. Convince self it is just a short story
Day X+10: Talk to devo. Feel B niggle stronger. Add second layer of complication to plot.
Day X+14-21: Completely revamp plot B into story C
Day X+21-30: Pace, stare off into middle distance, wake girl up in the middle of the night to tell her about complications to story C.
Day X+31: Start story C.
So, yeah, I’m on day X+29 or 30. The plot is there, the complications are there, the world is there, and I want to write. It’s so close to the surface I think my skin will split.
Also, I’ve heard nothing about how Lineage is doing. I know that’s just how they do things, and at least I only have to wait a week or so to see the royalty statement. It still sucks. Fanfic and its instant gratification ruins you completely.
Also, also, this new thing won’t have vampires in it. *sigh* I miss Vision already.
