so... i've written roughly another 2000 words on Seventh Gift, and keep having little scenarios and scenes pop into my head as i wonder just how long it's going to be. (it would be rather ironic if it turns out to be 30,000 words on the dot, and if that happens, i'm going to be seriously tempted to do some editing on my tenses to make the sections reflect the section headings....) but Green Day, which just needs one last bit of editing done before i re-post it in it's final version, appears to be temporarily stalled. i know this is because farad asked me what Vin was feeling in Dr. Will's office, and said that i needed to show that better. i don't disagree, but ACK! feelings! i'll trade you several emo tears if you just let me write about number line theory, really!
and even that reaction is strange, because i attempt to write each story in a style that will evoke a particular emotion in the readers, and if the feedback i'm getting is any indication, i'm doing fairly well at that. not that i don't have a lot to learn, but that for where i'm at writing-wise, i'm managing to evoke the reactions i want fairly consistently.
but yeah. i really, really want to finish Green Day, because i'm *so close*, and don't feel like i can do the christmas story in my werewolf AU or the meta inspired by farad's editing commentary on Green Day, even though i don't *have* to wait, in a technical sense. it's just, i have this little list, and i totally can't move on to those smaller pieces until i finish the 'big piece' of Green Day, and it's kind of driving me batty. and it's driving me batty that i'm pulling a blank on something i really should be able to add to Green Day quite easily.
does anyone else's writing habits occasionally drive them around the bend? why or why not?
