It begins tomorrow! I am going to try to finish my old Watchmen/werewolf fic Nocturnal, once and for all. Wish me luck.

Here's the thing...

I started writing a fanficcy thing expecting it to be short and sweet and whatever. I gave it a cutesy title based on the first few sections and posted it as it was written and now I've run into a dilemma.

Me, being me, went completely off road with the fic and now there's plot and intrigue on the way and it looks like it it's going to be maybe a little sprawling and the title might not be that appropriate anymore. Should I end little ficcy at a fitting spot and carry on with the plot and the intrigue in a new fic, or just go for it and let the crazy happen?

Any suggestions?

Yeesh. I can't read my own writing. Or I can't find my own writing.

When I can't be writing, I am writing down what I want to be writing. So all this time when I haven't been writing, I have been making lists of what I will write when I have time. Well, Christmas break is a-coming up, so I'll have time, but now I have pandemonium on scrap paper to make sense of. Just. Um. It's a mess. And I can't find my notes on the main one I want to work on. All I remember is one line from it and I can probably write the rest, but I'm afraid I'll miss something, so I want to see my notes.

Meanwhile, I write other things. Typety typety.

I've had a good fanfic run this week and I'm hoping I can do some of the October themes for [livejournal.com profile] 31_days. It's been awhile since I've done non-Watchmen stuff, but I'm finally getting to the end of some of my sprawling tales. Hope it lasts!

In other news I had a dream I was babysitting for a neighbor and the Dad turned out to be a mover and shaker in the underworld, so some unsavory types came to kidnap the kid to hold over him. I didn't know that, I just knew men in black suits were shooting at me. So began a dream cross country escape. It was a blur of stealing cars, plugging bullet wounds with gas station tampons, and hiding live rattlesnakes where a pursuer would stumble upon them. I let the kid call his Dad to let him know everything was ok.

I don't remember how we got away and then got back, but I do remember saying that if a psychologist could ever trace any psychosis in the kid back to the trauma of the adventure, I would cheerfully refund the $20. That's a babysitting guarantee, right there.

• √ day one: read watchmen!! watch watchmen!!

• √ day two: draw your favorite character Quicky sharpie doodle!
• √ day three: draw your favorite pairing Bromance or romance, I just can't comfortably see them with anyone but each other.

• √ day four: do a makeshift cosplay
My first idea for a quick cosplay was to find my goggles and somebody willing to photograph me naked in the basement, but it didn't work out before I reconsidered*. Sooo, I did the next best thing:
Can you tell I made it myself? That's fifty cents worth of felt from Michael's and about five paperclipsin action right there.

• √ day five: write a short fic

*wussed out
