Dear Fl*st I have a question, and am in need of your help.  
Friends, Romans, Fl*sters lend me your ears, and your vast expierience of writing and dealing with Big Bangs! (if you pardon the pun) Ok the BB I'm writing is standing at over forty thousand words (don't bloody ask) now the problem is thus.  The last chapter I churned out, is not very good, it's dialogue and exposition are clunkier than a Transformer after it's been through a service at our garage!

Now do I go back and fix it, along with all the other damn bugs that need swatting? or do I press forward and finish the thing and return to the scene of the crime later?

I have a posting date of the 1st October, which sounds bloody marvelous, until you realize it takes me nearly a week, to check and recheck stuff.  Before I send it off to my wondeful and long suffering Beta Judy (And even then its a mess). And so far she's only had 3 chapters, the BB stands at 8 now.

Then that's before you take into account the art work for the fic, which is gorgeous by the way.It's the whole posting of said fic, and art which is gonna be the problem.  And anyone who has read recent entries will know....just how much bloody trouble I'm having posting.

Heelp I'm in trouble, I don't know what to do. All suggestions welcome, now excuse me while I try and coax my muse from under my desk where it is crying and gibbering softly.

Sorry to hear you're having a trouble with BigBangs story. I'm not a writer so I'm not certain which way to better to solve your problem on writing, but maybe the latter way?

It's killing me I tell you *G* but I'm going with the pressing ahead and then going back to fix things.

I find that if I don't go ahead and finish I get bogged down in details. Finish the thing and then debug.

I'm leaning towards doing that. I think once it's done I can go back and concentrate on the clean up. Right then come here Dean we got work to do *G*.

Press forward and finish honey - it might giver you the inspiration and fuel you need to go back and fix this bugs later...

I'm going for it! I have no other choice now! I've gotten so far I don't want to fail with this.

*hug* It'll be okay! You'll make it on time and it will be amazing! I say finish it and then go back to that chapter. If it absolutely comes down to it and the world is about to end, you can submit it with a wonky chapter, but you can't submit it unfinished. You'll get it done, though, and you'll get that chapter fixed. I just know it. *offers you a sponge and fills the tub for Dean's bath*

Your faith in me is touching, now if only I can coax my gibbering muse out to play everything will be fine! And thank you for the lovely thought I'll save that for the ending of the fic as a celebration!

Just tell her you'll let her help with the bath if she helps you finish it on time. *grin*

I'd like to thank you for that, the next over 7000 word chapter went off to my artist! I hope she likes it, I'm afraid Dean ain't too
happy, but what can I say that boy is just too pretty when he suffers *G*

Hey! Having read a load of your work I'm pretty damn sure that last chapter you wrote isn't bad but if it's not up to your standards, I'd still say plough on and come back to it later. I find once I get writing, the story kinda flows and I can't get back into it if I stop and fiddle around changing stuff I've already written. Re-writes always come later for me. xx

*Wow* thank you fro such as awesome comment, *blush* I will carry onwards and upwards and see if I can put right what went wrong later. I just need to get back in the flow and everything will be fine.
