It's that time of year again!  
Friends, Romans, Fl*ters, welcome to the usual round of wibbling.  The high of winning my prompt on spn_reversebang has subsided, and the dawning enormity of what I’ve just done has sunk in.

I’ve got until the 8th December to put together a Fic. You guys know me 3000 minimum not a problem, but making sure I stay on track and get the bloody thing ready for that date has already started the wibbling *G*

So in the spirit of my usual headless chicken routine, I will now dust off the panic alert alarm *coughs*.


Ok I feel better now. Well betterish, on a brighter note I’ve got a rough outline for the story. Over 500 words, see I told you word count is not a problem *G*

So I’m off to achieve my Zen ( I’m sat here with one of my black belts wrapped round my head, humming Eye of the tiger.) and I’m going to try and start writing, I fully intend to set myself a target for word count per day. I also intend to scribble at some of my other stories, to stop me from going stir crazy.  So don’t be surprised if at some point I do my usual LJ disappearing act, all depending on how well the story scribbling is going.

Look out folks, it’s wibbling season!

I know how you feel about deadlines and staying on target. It can be a scary proposition.

Have you thought about joining mini_wrimo? You could probably do well with 50K bigger NanoWriMo deal, but this one is a bit smaller and laid back. You commit to a word count a day and you check in daily. They don't chase after you if you don't check in so no worries there. :-)

Good luck with your reversebigbang!

I do this to myself every damn time *G* But I'm determined to do this. I love the art, and I thik I've got a decent story developing. Now it's time to relax, and try to coax musie out from under the bed and start scribbling.

Thanks for the suggestion about the mini_wrimo, it could be a good way to keep me on track.

No problem for such a talented lady as you.
If you wouldn't mind rustling up a finish for 'Hell is Other People' while you're at it; I'm at the hairdressers on Wednesday and could do with some reading material ...

No pressure or anything!

Talent what talent?

Hell's teeth woman, I'm already a wibbling mess! Although I fully intend to finish the Fic O Doom very, very soon. Although you might be out of luck for Wednesday *G*

Sigh ... Oh well, I'll have to find some other porn - uh - fine literature to read while I'm under the hairdryer then!

"So I’m off to achieve my Zen ( I’m sat here with one of my black belts wrapped round my head, humming Eye of the tiger.)" I'm sorry but THAT just made me cry laughing.

Hun you'll be fine, it's the panic that makes it worse. Just sit down with your outline and let it flow, seriously, you'll have it written in no time.

Believe it or not deadlines help me focus on the end goal, but don't let it sit there niggling at you, that way lies more anxiety attacks ((hugs)) if you need a hand with spitballing ideas or someone to rant at about it, gimme a holler

It was a gem wasn't it? I feel that the odd venting of the spleen, prevents the need for keyboard headbanging.

Tell me about panic, once it starts musie crawls under the bed with her blankie and refuses to come out. But I have an outline, I have 500 words already and I'm aiming to do some more.

I can focus with deadlines, I just have to stop them taking over the writing process. You may live to regret that offer of help, just ask the other long suffering members of my fl*st how loudly I can wibble *G*

But I promise to cling whimpering to your ankles when musie sits sulking in the corner, and not even promises of my favorite episodes of Supernatural can lure her back.

I won't regret it, believe me *grins* any time hun, and don't worry, my cantankerous little sod of a muse has deserted me for the last week, so I've been filling the void with pretty and shiny and silly. She'll come back when she's hungry, as will yours :D
