I need to post giles_watchers stat. I haven't finished the bookmarking yet, but it's already jammed full of Giles/Xander fic. A startling amount. It's downright encouraging how much. Also, I just bookmarked a preseries Who crossover featuring, Giles, Ten, and UNIT, so hey! Next up I will coax from the universe a crossover featuring Seven, since this trend must definitely be encouraged. [Time passes.] Okay, I did another half hour of bookmarking and there. A newsletter full of multichapter fic!
I, meanwhile, have been writing at least a little bit every day in my giant idfic BG story, while getting solid work done on other, non-fannish projects. It's been a good month so far despite not finishing anything. Speaking of which...
What should I do to break my block against finishing stories?
Short sudden fiction of some kind: comment prompts, first-responder tagfic.
One of those more traditional prompt table thingies.
Find a deadline and enforce it somehow. I'll supply the flamethrower!
Pick a story and lock yourself into a room with it and a pile of coffee-making equipment.
Pick a story and lock yourself into a room with it and a bottle of whiskey.
Put your therapist on danger money, baby.
Giles/Xander and that barrow wight, since you're already working on it.
Giles/Buffy and that knighting incident, since you're already working on it.
The story I will berate you about in a comment.
The next chapter of something unfinished, you cruel person.
I don't care so long as it features my favorite Giles pairing.
I don't care so long as it features Giles.
I don't care so long as it gets you to stop whinging.
The best method of procrastination is:
Long hot baths.
Catching up on important world news.
Getting outside and running a mile or two.
Wait, I thought all of this was procrastination from having to run in the first place.
Has the Orb recorded anything good in the last ten years?
All I know about the Orb is that song about the little fluffy clouds that every TV show ever plays when they want to signal that there's this "raving" thing going on.
I don't know. I haven't listened to a single thing they've done since Toxygene was so disappointing.
I'm, er, down with the new music.
I object to your singular verb.
I went and did my mile and now I'm all sweaty. Time for procrastination via bath!
