Femslash fic (and not posting)
Sunday 22nd October 2017 2:10 pm

I haven't posted for a while. This was mainly because Dreamwidth changing to https broke all the crossposting plugins. So it meant that I had to manually copy the posts from LJ, which was too much of a pain to be bothered with.

There are two plugins which are both based off an old one and haven't been updated for years. They still don't work with DW, but I am still using the same one to crosspost to LJ, so if you read there, you won't notice any difference. For DW I have a new plugin that crossposts to hundreds of places, but doesn't do any LJ/DW specific stuff. So if you're reading this on DW you'll see extra spaces between paragraphs. And if I use a more tag at any point you'll get even more spacing, rather than a cut tag.

I tried looking at both plugins to see if I could edit some things from one into another, but the new one is so long, because it does so much that Kate (KDE Linux equivalent of Notepad++) complained about it, and I decided I had better things to do with my time. For now, this is better than manually crossposting.

I wrote a fic for [info]femslashex:
Military Interference (2630 words) by paranoidangel
Fandom: Doctor Who (2005), Sarah Jane Adventures
Relationships: Kate Lethbridge-Stewart/Sarah Jane Smith
Summary: Sarah Jane and Kate have to save themselves from aliens and settle a score.

One of the things [info]selenay talked about was Sarah disliking military interference. So I decided the best place for Sarah and Kate to talk about it was in a cell on an alien spaceship heading away from Earth. And then I went "Shit! How do I get them out of this?" Which is generally how I write plot: get them into a mess and have no idea how to get them out of it.

Mostly about Femslash
Sunday 6th November 2016 4:05 pm

This week has been a busy week - I was out four nights in a row. Work was frustrating and having just had half term where I had nothing on any evening, it was good to get out and do something else. I had very little that I needed to get done this weekend, so I have been doing it today - yesterday I did pretty much nothing at all. It was nice for a change.

[info]femslashex all happened this week. I've been wanting to try it once and this year it was nicely timed and I just about managed to find the minimum number of offers and requests.

I got this lovely Sarah/Kate fic from [info]selenay:
The Clean Up Date (2830 words) by Selenay
Fandom: Doctor Who (2005), Sarah Jane Adventures
Rating: General Audiences
Relationships: Kate Lethbridge-Stewart/Sarah Jane Smith
Summary: “It’s whatever you want it to be,” Kate said quietly, her usual note of mild amusement absent. “It can just be dinner, if you want.”

I wrote this Missy/Clara fic:
Double Desolation (2281 words) by paranoidangel
Fandom: Doctor Who (2005)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Relationships: Missy/Clara Oswald
Summary: Clara has dinner with Missy. Of course Missy has an ulterior motive, Clara just has to find out what it is.

It was a bit strange to write as every time I put "Missy" I think she's my hamster. Who is not too dissimilar from the character. There was a point in the betaing when Sel wrote something along the lines of "that's just like Missy" and I thought "It is just like Missy", and then realised Sel was talking about the fictional character, not my hamster.

Writing
Tuesday 18th October 2016 6:07 pm

I kept meaning to post, but I seem to either be busy or recovering from being busy. But I have crossed off quite a bit on my to do list.

The other thing I've been doing is writing. My Femslash fic is pretty much finished, aside from beta changes. And coming up with a title. I think the latter will be harder...

For Yuletide I got the fandom I was hoping I would. And then immediately wondered why I signed up for it because I couldn't possibly write it. And I didn't know what to write. I now have two bits of scenes and a vague idea of a plot and some notes for bits that'll come later.

But Public Call is due first, although the assignments for that only went out Sunday night. I had been looking at the signup summary to guess what relationship I might get. And then when I got my assignment, realised that I know more characters than the ones I signed up for and can in fact write a relationship I didn't sign up for. Which didn't help decide what to write... But then I woke up earlier than I needed to on Monday morning and now have a (very rough) idea of what I might write. Which is a start, at least.

And this is all much more writing than I've done all year, pretty much. It has done what I'd hoped and spurred me on to work on some of the (many) things I've started this year and next and not finished. I keep feeling like my writing is crap, so first drafts are fine, as they're supposed to be crap, but finishing things off, not so much. Even having had lovely comments on some (older) things with people saying how much they like it doesn't help. It just makes me think that I could write once, but can't any more. And by definition people can't say my current stuff is good because I don't have any current stuff that's finished.

But I have nearly finished my [info]dw_guestfest fic. It's only six months after the deadline and two months after the summer mini-round, but still a lot further than I thought I'd get two months ago. Maybe I'll even finish it...
