Since I don't seem to have much luck keeping up with Saturday blog posts... but it's only two weeks I've missed. Not that I've been blogging much longer than that in total, but I'll give it one more try next week. Though my family will be here to do some work around the house so I don't know how well that will work out.
Why must weekends be so short? Grump, whine, groan, complain, there, all done for now. It is Sunday afternoon once again and thus it is time for the Surpassing Sunday Dangerverse report. And what there is to report, is... well, not a whole heck of a lot. I was going to try to write Surpassing Danger this weekend and that hasn't happened.
I don't really know what triggers certain types of writing in me, though I can always guess. Sometimes I've been able to force myself into writing something I didn't think I could, usually by means of someone, even myself, telling me not to. I've got enough teenager left in me for that. More often, though, the writing comes when it comes.
At the moment, most of my focus is on Playing with Fire, and as I mentioned about Killdeer, it's a fairly large register shift to come out of historical and into contemporary (or futuristic). Still, that isn't the whole story. As I also said last week, a part of me is afraid to finish the DV, and I think that's manifesting in procrastination.
Is the DV perfect? No, far from it. Is it massively important to my own development as a writer, and I hope to my readers' development as both fans and people? I think so. Has it taught me a lot about writing, what to do and what not to do, how best to get the effects I want, and what urges will probably turn into dead ends? Absolutely.
Next month marks the ninth anniversary of Living with Danger being posted on fanfiction. How long have you been with the 'verse? When did you first find it, and how? Or are you a reader of my originals and haven't read my fanfic? I'd be fascinated to know, and very possibly your answers will help me break my block...
'Nother short post, but that's about all I have to say, DV-wise. I do, however, have a most fascinating link to share. Click here to see why I will very shortly be adding the cover art for A Widow in Waiting to one of the saved files of its contents, and then emailing that to a particular location. Everybody think good thoughts!
Thanks again for reading and see you on Tuesday, and if there's anything you'd like me to cover here, please let me know!
