Bad.  
I need to become a better bad writer.

See, my het_bigbang/Kiss Kiss Big Bang fic is bad. Not in an 80s slang way - it's just not very good. The emotional development isn't flowing organically, the plot is tacked on and/or nonexistent, and the tone/writing style still hasn't settled down. Am I writing a comedy? A drama? A shopping list? It's hard to tell!

Now, I'm told that this is normal for people who write with multiple drafts. This can theoretically all be cleaned up with editing and rewriting, though that means I need to finish the first draft all the quicker. The problem is that I just kind of suck at pushing through with something bad and saying "I'll fix it later."

(And my neighbors are blasting shitty music and my laptop is really hot and I don't have minions bringing me iced tea. Maybe I should relo to one of the 10,000 coffee shops in this city.)

Okay, I think I just needed to complain. Though should you wish to comment with some variation of "You're soooooo awesome!" or "WRITE BITCH WRITE!" or threatening violence or extolling the virtues of really shitty writing, that would not go awry.

*blows kiss*

You're soooooooooooooo awesome! But you should write!!! *whipcrack*

I DON'T KNOW.

THIS IS HARD.

WHY IS THIS NOT MAGICALLY WRITING ITSELF.

THESE ARE IMPORTANT QUESTIONS.

ALSO WHY DO I NOT OWN A DESK AND CHAIR I THINK THAT WOULD IMPROVE MATTERS BUT WHEN I OWN A DESK AND CHAIR I NEVER USE THEM SO MAYBE IT'S JUST AN EXCUUUUUUUSE.

DAMMIT FIC, WRITE YOURSELF AND BE AWESOME.

I KNOW! WHY DONT THESE FICS MAGICALLY WRITE!?! I THOUGHT WE WERE LIVING IN THE FUTURE NOW!!!?????


anyway yeah, once I get going I can write but the problem is DISTRACTIONS x_x

My problem is "OH GOD THIS SUCKS!"

And distractions too, I guess, but I'm better at mitigating those when things don't suck.

Why can't I figure out what the heck I'm doing in this fic??
Lannalanna_kitty on August 29th, 2011 02:53 am (UTC)
I don't know!! that's my problem too :(


does it need to do anything?
Little Red: peanuts - rejection slips - alivicwilmylittleredgirl on August 29th, 2011 02:58 am (UTC)
I think so since it will have to be posted in a month??? Ugh. I sort of know what it should do, it's just really not coming out that way.

Girlfriend I have NO idea how you posted your nano novel as you wrote!!! You have my unending admiration for that! I have churned out lotsa words but they are all so awful I think my second draft will be a total do-over. :-/ Knowing people will READ THIS is le streesful!
fyca: DRR giddy lovefyca on August 31st, 2011 01:07 am (UTC)
Like my nano novel hasn't been awful! I have, like, two readers and one of them barely speaks English. Anyway, after 6 years of Nano, I have definitely learned how to not care what kind of crap churns out. Standards, schmandards. Quality, schmality. On a related note - 163,162 words!

Little Red: sga - sparktobermylittleredgirl on August 30th, 2011 08:08 pm (UTC)
I can, right? Maybe? :-/

(OMG. Sparktober is in like almost a month. I am so excited. We will be revisiting Pretty Hell Day also, yes? Because I think my theme for Sparktober this year for myself might be Finish Everything Goddammit and I never did finish my alphabet fic...)
anranr on August 31st, 2011 02:57 am (UTC)
ALPHABET FIC?! Do not tease me, woman. It has been a loooooooooooooooong year waiting for this!

(IOW, yes and yes. *g*)

Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you!!! <3

My god, if I ever were to become a Real Actual Writer, I would be so pathetic. I'd be on here every day begging TELL ME I'M AWESOME AND CAN DO THIIIIISSSSS. I'm actually surprised I don't do that just for normal things like taking in the mail. ;)
