Four years ago (Yup, FOUR), I had a plot bunny that wouldn't die, so I started writing it. I've no idea how much I did then, but I'd thought through enough that I wanted to start typing it out. Then there was a huge gap. And 2 years ago, the muse was kind, and I got a TON more written. But still nowhere near complete.
THEN earlier this year, I just wanted to write, so I worked on this piece. And I got it so close to finished, that I just forced myself to keep thinking about it, and then to write it all out.
AND I DID. It's DONE* (*pending beta revisions and such). It's not a giant fic, only about 25K words, but it is something new, unrelated to any previous fic of mine, and I'm feeling pretty good about it.
When I came over here to post this, I saw that about 2 years ago, I'd been working hard on an epilogue to "Heavy." And I've been thinking about that process I went through, and how I don't think I want to stick with what I'd started 2 years ago. Ha. I've also got some very basic ideas for what I want to do. I'm still hoping to write it. I even started a Word Doc for it. "Heavy epi 2." It's going to happen, I think. Just, not sure when.
I can't wait for this one, though. I definitely feel rusty. Maybe once my beta and I get to work, the muscle memory will kick in and I'll be able to fly through an epilogue. I've seriously been dying to write one for awhile now. Anyway. To anyone who might read this post, thank you!
