Fanfic Update

The good news is I found my muse! She was hiding under a pile of unfolded laundry or something like that. The bad news is I don't have as much time as I used to have for some odd reason. So based on all that I think it'll be about a month before I actually post something, but I am working on something! Two somethings.



First one is what I posted a sneak peak of back in February. It morphed from a one shot into a 3 chapter thing. It's an idea I've been struggling with for years that's finally coming together, and I guess can be summarized as that all relationships have their trade offs and pitfalls and people have to decide if those are worth staying in the relationship or calling it off.

Since what I wrote that was supposed to be the oneshot became the middle, I've had the interesting experience of writing backwards (I am so write in the order that events unfold it is not even funny, though I know people who do it piecemeal, it sets off my anxiety). It's a bit disorienting for me, but it's a good writing exercise I guess. Good news is once I finally get the first part up the second part should quickly follow!

Second one is a oneshot and will stay one. I read a book recently about women's sexual fantasies (Private Thoughts by Wendy Maltz) that I thought was a lot of post-Freudian psychoanalytic mumbo jumbo mixed with an unrealistic grounding in behaviorism which somehow those two views should be diametrically opposed but.../psych rant, ahem, but it gave me an idea so it wasn't a complete waste of a read. It will also follow the novel storyline.

Um...I haven't figured out a title for either. I suck at titles and am hoping inspiration will strike and prevent me from going with something overly literal or cheesy...

My wedding anniversary is Monday and my parents are watching the kiddos this afternoon, so off to taking full advantage of a quiet house/not having to nurse and infant/not having a toddler bang on my keyboard.
