OKay so I have been completely remiss in the last few weeks about posting for the writing fest. I can tell you that my productivity has nosedived, but I did hit the 50,000 mark that I wanted to hit this month some time ago. I logged it into NaNoWrMo but I will not copy and paste my writings into there. I just don't feel like I want to do that at all. So I will officially fail to them. Ha!
Some updates overall:
*My Writing Mojo for WC has decreased exponentially. I'm not sure why, but I think it might be because there really isn't a lot of fic being put out there as an inspiration plus there's no new material to inspire. That always makes it harder. I have an idea for a Batcat story for my advent entry, and I also have outlined the next empathia stories...but right now not much happening on that front except for a crossover.
*Which brings me to my newest fandom love is the Marvel movies specifically The Avengers/Captain America/kind of Ironman - Okay only Ironman where it relates to the Steve/Tony pairing. I started reading this one because of Shaenie's new series. Putting another plug in for it here
. Then I found some other great stories and just have been consumed by them. So I started to work on a crossover which I thought would be good for the WC advent fest over on lj hurt/comfort but decided it probably doesn't really fit there. I don't think at this point I will get too far into the weeds of writing Steve/Tony, but you never know. Maybe someone will prompt me with a great idea (hint hint). Or maybe I will cross Avengers with my old fandom Stargate - ha! you never know.
*Another great issue I am dealing with is work. It is killing my butt and will not let up. At this time of year that is the kiss of death for anything else to get done. I am trying to get my holiday shopping done and nothing is really getting to its final stages so I am incredibly stressed out. Plus I cannot access lj anymore at work (or at least I shouldn't - too many prying eyes). Today I am teleworking so yay can be on line. And yet another problem - my furniture at work - really this is a problem. They just upgraded all of our furniture and this was supposed to make my life better but it has been horrible. The damned set up has set off my elbow issues which makes it almost impossible to work or write. I usually try to do a little writing at work when I have the occassional down time. I have had everybody (including my husband) try and work out a solution for me. Nothing has worked thus far. My husband and I are going back into my office this weekend to try once more. If the new set up doesn't work, then we will need to call in the ergo experts.
*Original fic writing has slowed to a crawl but I think that is only because I am inundated with everything else. It is just too much right now and I know I will get back to it. I have some really good chapters to write so I am not frustrated or worried about it now.
So how has everyone dealt with November and writing/creating and getting it done?
