THIS entry was meant to be posted yesterday, but LJ was having some issues, so we're going to pretend today is yesterday and all will be fine!


Not that it really matters, it isn't like I've got anything (or any one) to do today. But it just sucks to be sick, especially since I had decided on several plans last night and I've been trying to follow through today, but it isn't going well.

My head hurts and I cannot stay off the potty. However, as far as I'm concerned the headache is the bigger problem - I woke up this morning and knew I didn't feel right, but I didn't feel bad, so no problem, right? Wrong! Now I feel like crap and I wish I could shoot the marching band inside my head.

But anyway...


Anyway, I've added the scene I wrote a week (or more ago) into Long Gray Twilight 2 - I haven't reread the whole thing yet to know if it works better or not... That was one of the things I was going to do today, but because I feel so shitty - rereading would not be helpful.
But I decided to go ahead and stick it in anyway because my computer is starting to slow down and might be about to play out on me and I didn't want to lose that scene if that happened.

Again, though, since it is just a really short scene added on in the middle of chapter six - I'm not sure how much difference it will actually make. I might end up having to come back and do more.



As if I didn't have enough on my plate, I realized that for the past three/four days I've had several really cool scenes in my head for a story. So last night I pulled out Word and began to put them on paper. I ended up with eight pages, which is impressive for me in one go.

However, what I'd really wanted to do now that Long Gray Twilight 2 was finished was get back to work on Unexpected American Vacation and then after that actually go back to Blood Ties (Needs some reworking to reduce confusion.) and Sex, Lies, and Alternate Universes, which I thought needed a sequel.

I think it was because my mind was thinking over that last one is most likely what spawned the fanfic I started working on last night, because originally I thought I would do a sequel for Sex, Lies, and Alternate Universes. Now the more I think about the more I think if I can add/rework a few things (mostly minor) in this story it won't need a sequel. At best it might get an epilogue, but I no longer expect there to be a sequel.

However, after all the above, I've still got (I believe all told) nine stories in progress that I wanted to get serious about working on/finishing. Now it looks like I'm going to be working on yet another story before getting back to those.

I think once this current one is finished I am just going to force myself to pull out those other stories and start working whether I'm exactly in the mood or not. Hopefully, merely rereading them with intent will be enough to put me back in the mood.

Sadly, because of the LJ issues and a certain photo, I ended up not really working on the new story much yesterday - but the ideas are still fresh and coming.


HOPE EVERYONE HAD A VERY HAPPY VALETINES DAY!
I know I did, despite everything!
Look for a squeeling fangirl entry from me later today where I'll tell you all about it!
