Oh dip, I now have drafts in various stages of completeness for all five squares on a bingo???? This is a big deal for me, guys. Also they're in five different fandoms, which is also mind-blowing, if not more so, because I had not felt that connected to a lot of things, fannishly. (In case you missed it: here
is the one that's really complete so far, a very silly Downton AU where Anna and Mary work at a pastry shop in space.)
I mean, some of them are SUPER draft-ish, at the moment, one in particular because it started turning into a whole long STORY, and then I was psyching myself out and convinced that I was ~never~ going to finish it, so I took a break from trying to piece the scenes together and just wrote a vignette version of it, to reassure myself that I could actually complete SOMETHING. And it's very stream-of-consciousness and I was half-asleep when I wrote it so I think it needs a ton of editing, but, you know, that's doable. I think I can get everything edited and posted by the October 31 deadline.
I mean, given that the one I've posted so far has 42 hits and not so much as a kudo, let alone a comment, I am not convinced that even once I've edited them they will be any good
, but I am happy with them, which I guess is the most important thing. I mean, mostly, I realize it's probably just that I posted on a Friday evening, which is not a great time for it anyway, and also it's f/f and a weird AU, but the hits going up and still seeing no feedback is a little unsettling anyway. OH WELL. The important thing is just reminding myself that I can write, I think. If what I'm writing is terrible and everyone is too embarrassed to tell me, well, I gotta start somewhere.
Anyhoo, bingos! That is new for me. Usually I just complain about not being able to get anything done, crank out 500 words within the last few weeks of amnesty, and repeat the whole cycle all over again. A bin...
