Greetings! O Long Suffering Fl*st  


Friends, Romans, Fl*ters lend me your ears....please feel free to ignore this wibble!  I'm just in the mood to vent my spleen, and it's my journal and I'll babble if I want to!

Ok musie and I are engaged in a battle to the death, two falls, two submissions, and the last one to grab hold of Jensen wins.  Well I'm writing again....chapter 5 of Acolyte0301 to be precise, I decided that was it time to stop faffing and really stay in one place.  so sadly what that means is this year's spn gen Big Bang has bit the big one.  But never fear that whole Supernatural meets Die Hard will be written, hell even if it ends up being done for next year's Big Bang (I have every faith it will be back).

My other half written stories will be finished it due course, but I refuse to stress over it, remember I'm here to have fun right?

Then of course just as me and musie had just gotten back on speaking terms I dropped by spnstoryfinders, and there was a request and lo and behold someone reconmmended Hell Is Other People!  I was pleased and then had a reality check when I spotted the words good fic even though 'the writing is a bit shaky'.  And yup there went musie straight back under the bed!

So I sat starring at the wall, overdosing on some of the best fic out there, and generally pouting, sulking and feeling sorry for myself.  Then it struck me, they were right, the writing is bloody shaky and in other places it's merely crap.  Now I can let it get me down, I can give up and just read the vastly more taleneted writers out there, or I can stop frigging whinning and start hitting the key board again.

So with that in mind I promptly signed up for the spn_reversebang, this is just a warning to any artists on my fl*st, you could be the poor unfortunate that gets stuck with me.  If that doesn't put you off signing up, then you really are made of strong stuff.

But back to my scribbles, the latest piece of crud sorry chap 5 of Acoylte is only 7,800 words long, and has bugger all to do with the main plot! I have managed to get some plot in there. I could just scrap the lot and have Jensen have a great night at the club dancing to escape his troubles, or I could stick with the angst fest I have written *sigh* (I mean I started the damn thing last year, I should be able to come up with something fresh by now right?)

The only bright spot is I now have inspiration for the plot, and I would like to thank Person Of Interest for that!  it's helped me see a way out of the plot hole I'd dug myself into.

Right wibble over, I'll let you good, kind folks get back to your lives and leave me staring moodily into a corner, while trying to figure out what to do with the unholy steaming mess I've got on my hands.

Don't worry about it, that person is clearly an idiot, your stories are great! I got my first bad review on my birthday,if you can believe it, and it was way worse than yours - she/he basically said that the way Jared treated Jensen in one of my fics was tantamount to domestic abuse and she/he hated it so...

Don't let it get you down, everyone loves your stories and I, for one, can't wait till we get more of Acolyte and Hell is Other People.

But don't stress...this is all totally for funsies!

I'm also thinking about signing up for spn_reversebang...

It sounds strange but it might make me a better writer. I'm looking at my stories objectively and some of it really needs tightening up, so I intend to push on try and improve, make my scribbles more enjoyable for you brave souls who read them.

And what bloody domestic abuse? I've never seen that in one of youe stories but it just goes to prove we al see things differently.

And I'm letting go of my angst this is for fun, and Jensen just looks pretty when he angsts.

You're thinking of signing up as well? Great! I say go for it and we can wibble together *G*

I don't be;live they were "right" !! I have always enjoyed your writing. ~~ whips out the pom poms~~

I think it was more a way of saying I need to tighten up my storie,s and improve the writing rather than being horrible. But you can't keep a bad fan fic writer down, I'll soon be up and about battering Jensen once more *G*. just with more attention to detail, and flow of plot.

I admit it made musie hide in a dark corner for days, then she emerged with a determined glint in her eyes. So now I'm writing again, trying to improve tidying, and thinking...god I waffle, but it's my style and I don't want to cahnge to much.

So you're bored are you? right that's a challenge if I ever heard one....hhhmmmm back to the keyboard, well once I get home from work that is.

Thank you for the comment, it means the world to me.

I guess because I'm not a native tongue of English but I really don't understand what they meant of 'the writing is a bit shaky'? Seriously?

Because I really enjoy your stories not to mention my favourite 'Hell.' And I got so thrilled to hear you've been writing the next chapter of 'Acolyte030'! *sqeeeeee*

Some ppl are just idiot.
sasha_dragonsasha_dragon on August 23rd, 2012 06:25 pm (UTC)
Every one has their opinion and I respect it. It just means I will just have to improve my writing, or at least give it a shot.

I have every intention of getting this chapter sorted out soon.

*Smacks you over head with rolled up newspaper* Now you stop that as well, it just means I need to up my game. True there is the part a story got recced, I'm hoping that this will improve my writing. Or at the very least I crank the angst up to eleven.

There ya go! *Beams* I'm always striving to improve and expand. Don't think I'll ever stop. And cranking the angst up? OH. YEAH.

*SQUISHES*

Your writing is totally rad. Sometimes I think people are just smoking crack or something when they write reviews/recs/comments...at least that's what I tell myself ;)

I'm thinking of signing up for the reverse bang. So I will share in your wibbly pain if I actually go through with it!
sasha_dragonsasha_dragon on September 12th, 2012 06:36 pm (UTC)
Thank you for the lovely comment, and everyone is entitled to their opinion. And it might just spur me on to being a better writer.

Go for it, it is fun and I'm all for wibbling together.
