Giles/Buffy sword

and yet I love writing at the novella length. allegedly.

GAH plot. GAH structure. GAH the need to build to minor climaxes while ratcheting up the tension overall. GAH my brain's insistence on doing this while working toward a moment of pure id-crack that was the simple prompt I was supposed to write four months ago. But it is time to drive this one to completion single-mindedly, while improving my chops at solving various plotting problems. What I need to do now is step back and re-outline. Perhaps I will start by writing a simple synopsis. That'll be less intimidating.

wickedfox's manip #1 (worksafe) is providing inspiration for a specific post-fight scene.

I just figured out that the version of the Avengers that Joss Whedon is writing and directing is some superheroes in leotards crap, and not a remake of, you know, "The Avengers". With John Steed and Emma Peel.

Yes, you can shoot me now for failing to investigate this properly earlier. But what a way to kill my buzz there, huh?

Happy birthdays, all!

Woah, birthdays. Two today: Happy birthday to sahiya and twitchylizard! I do hope that Sahiya's birthday fun involved a lot of fresh cherries. Actual edible Flathead Lake cherries, as famously eaten by Lord Dimwit Flathead the Excessive. Then we've got bloodwrites and lilachigh and unmisha in a couple of days, for an early-mid-August birthday extravaganza week. Happy birthday to every one of you!
