Big Bang here I come.  
Friends, Romans, Fl*sters, here I am again and why is that hear you ask?  Well if you look at my icon, you’ll know I’ve gone and done it.  Yes,spn_j2_bigbang 2014 is a go, and of course in honour of this momentous occasion.  I think it is time to break out the alarm system. So here we go folks it’s time for a test....


Good to see that works, now I’ve got that out of system time to review exactly what I’ve done, I’ve committed myself to writing a story with a minimum of 20,000 words and by the 1st of May no less. So far so good, now let us review the amount of time I have to write during a day:

From Monday to Friday I work from nine to five with a thirty minute lunch break, and at the moment I’m stuck in the office until half five when I get a lift home from my boss. Now I can either spend my time lurking on LJ in my break, or I can try a little writing. Although I have to be careful what I get up to due to the fact Big Brother (or I should say the spy system on our computers which can be turned on at any second. Then the powers that be can see what programs we have open, and read everything on our screens.  Nice eh?).  So plot but no porn, I need my job I like to eat, and I have a Steve, a mother, two dogs, two cats and a tortoise to support.

Writing time in the evening, now you all know how much I love my mother and her endless support in my writing endeavours. I get roughly a couple of hours, to in her words ‘muck about on that thing’ before the stink eye and pouting starts. But on the bright side, if I manage to convince the old dear to sod off to bed before midnight, I get the telly and more writing time.

Of a weekend strangely enough I get less time due to the stink eye, unless mum nods off and Steve is watching the footy. Actually Steve is as good as gold, he leaves me to it and just moves round me if I’m away with the fairies and musie is being cooperative.

Actually looking at all that time it’s not too bad, I just need to be a little more disciplined.  Perhaps a weekly word total, one that is easily achievable enough that it will allow me to cause havoc on LJ as well (a fan girl must have time to squee). After all I’m here to have fun, not just stare blankly at my screen pulling my hair out *G*.

Also this year I’m actually going to write a proper synopsis, not my usual right here’s the start, here’s my ending and I’ll just faff around in the middle. No there is going to be a plot, I will allow for my usual wool gathering, and beating the crap out of Jensen, but I will try and stick to a storyline.

You know this might be the year I manage to finish another one, I have a good feeling about this one. Plus I’m counting on my fl*st to encourage, yell and keep me on track.

So then it is time to sort out a plot, ramp up the inspirational music, and every so often break away from the Big Bang to read stories, comment, play silly buggers. Also scribble at some of my other stories to ensure my interest doesn’t wane.

Oh yes this sucker’s goin’ down!

So I can take it you're pleased? I've seen some of the awesome authors signing up this year, and I'm so excited.

Good I'll need all the encouragement I can get, I can just imagine mum's face as you sat there getting her to ignore the typing *G*

*Fist Pump Of Joy* Yay!!!! You signed up :D

I shall dust off the pom-poms and my word pad :D

sasha_dragonsasha_dragon on January 20th, 2014 06:51 pm (UTC)
Yes I bit the bullet and I went for it! So far I have a synopsis that's nearly a thousand words long, part plot part ideas and I can see it expanding as a reminder as I go.

Right get the pompoms nice and sparkly, I'm going in *G*

So as your official beta that all sounds great. How many chapters are we thinking? Give me some notice please as things are a little hectic around that time.
sasha_dragonsasha_dragon on January 20th, 2014 06:53 pm (UTC)
Hey there, I'm not sure yet how many chapters, I'm at the plotting out stage. I promise there will be notice, I hate just springing things on people, looks like it's time to fire up the keyboard *G*

Damn your writing times are as complicated as mine! Stupid real life with its stupid stuff! Ugh!
But like you said, maybe if you make yourself a 'i need to write this much words per week' kinda deal then I am positive you can do finish this by the deadline! And you've got the whole f-list cheering you on!! :-):-):-)

Wooohooo... and hurt!Jensen? You totally made me do grabby hands, because theres just nothing better than that! And you said that you have a 1.000 words of the boys not even meeting each other yet? Mmmm... makes me wonder why not! :-):-):-):-) lol

Take care and write! :-)

Tell me about complicated writing times! My creative drive always kicks in while I'm at work. Talk about crappy timing huh? And yes I will be trying the whole so many words a week to see if that helps.

Hurt Jensen is my happy place, and I don't apologize for it. As for the 1400 words of them not meeting, well it's getting longer,I'm just going with the flow and see where the story takes me.

But i'm sure when we see Jensen, he will look absolutely lovely armed with a sword and pistol *G*

I understand perfectly about the screwed up ways a creative drive kicks in ... at the most odd and inconvenient times! ugh!

I hope the ''words per week'' thingy will help you... :)))) I know a lot of people who use that technique, but I am not one of them ... when I sit down to write it's either 0 words or 8.000 words with the snap of my finger! so .. yeah ... but I really hope it will work for you :)

it's my happy place too and I apologize to no one, BUT Jensen! :) sorry Jensen!!! but Jensen hurting is just ... so yummy!

SWORD AND PISTOL!!?!?? *swoons* :)

sasha_dragonsasha_dragon on February 9th, 2014 04:05 pm (UTC)
Oh the joys of my creative drive kicking in at work *G*

I'm a lot like you, it's ether all or nothing, so I'm going to try for words per week see if that helps *G*

I feel we should apologize to Jensen, the things we do to that poor boy. But he looks so good when he hurts, I can't help myself *G*

Hahhaha I can only imagine how frustrating it must be when
an idea strikes just when you are in the middle of work! :-)
How are you words wise? I don't wanna put any pressure on you, so you don't have to reply, if you don't wanna :-)

Yesss, he looks so delicious when he's hurting, oh my...... *guh*
