Ficage In July.  
First, let me just say that as I was scrolling through my July archives to see what fic I had posted in years past, I came across two things of note. a) I was legit bitching in a post back in July of 2010 about how Red Dawn is never coming out. Apparently, even back then I thought the wait had already been too long for the release of this movie. Little did I know how much longer I would have to wait. And b) I was scrolling by posts and I saw this jump out at me - Please tell Jeremy Renner to come over later and make-out with me. K? Thanx. It was a letter directed at Ben Affleck about his movie The Town. I'm just sayin', I have always had good tastes in men, okay? (Still haven't actually seen The Town yet though - should make sure it is in the Netflix).

Now word county stuffs: Almost forgot to post this month. I went to put in my word count from yesterday (2,350 words!) and I saw that last month's list was still in the document. Oops. I would say it is a pretty diverse month, but I feel like I always say that, don't I? Still five different fandoms this month, including Falling Skies fic, so add a brand new fandom to my list! Also, the cabin fic that I wrote out by hand ended up being 300 words more than I had estimated once I had typed it out. But so very, very little on The BFF's fic.

Here is my approximate word count for the month.

July, 2012
Week One: 550 words of Leverage fic.
Week Two: 1,700 words of Falling Skies Tom/Weaver fic. Completed.
Week Three: 1,550 words of Christian/Jensen AU fic.
Week Four: 1,500 words of SPN Weechester Cabin fic. Completed.
Week Four and a Half: 700 words of Secret Crossover fic.

6,000 words written in July!



July, 2010
Nymphs, Fairies and Paranormal Hoochies
My first Supernatural fanfic ever!! This is a drabble written as a Valentine's Day present for my girls and featuring Sam and Dean at a bachelor auction. It is short and cute and comes with pictures of the boys in formal wear!

July, 2011
Cowboys & Cupids at County
My first C2 fic ever! That's Chad Michael Murray/Christian Kane, if you're wondering. So I had always planned on writing some C2 but it was that damn ABC Family movie, “Christmas Cupid” that pushed me over the edge. The only way I could get through it was imagining Chad dumping that awful chick for Christian. I liked Chad in scrubs though, and I figured Christian would look good in scrubs too and...yeah that was about it for the reasons behind writing this fic. It was a nice cathartic release after that awful movie and the guys are adorable being all awkward and Jared wears peach bunny scrubs!

That is all I got this month. It seems July is not a heavy posting month for me. I must wait until the hibernation of winter, it seems. Which reminds me, I have fic to post this month and I need to get on that. I promised someone I would.

My goal between now and the end of September is to finish The BFF's fic - it already has 8,000 words and it needs about 4,000 more, I think, to be completed. I also want to finish The Nephew's back-to-school fic which I started yesterday. That needs about 1,500 more words or so. And, of course, the birthday fic I started for wolfrider89 last year right before I went into the hospital. That one needs another 2,500 words, possibly more. It is going to be a challenge though because I stopped right in the middle of a sex scene and it is hard to start back up again right in the flow of porn, you know? If I have time, I would also like to finish the little Leverage fic I am working on. It needs another 1,000 words and I figure I can work on it when I am feeling tapped out on the other stories. That's about 9,000 words in six weeks - I can do that, right?

Go you, Ms. Writey McWriterson!

Thanks!

9,000 word goal - I feel all grown-up making a big goal like that!

I'm impressed as all hell. And perhaps a wee bit jealous, too. ;)

Dude, why did Red Dawn take so long to release? I'm glad I didn't know about it, I get way too impatient for awesome stuff. (I'm looking at you, Sherlock! I'M LOOKING AT YOU!)

Congrats on the word count! You know, you motivate me to write just by posting these? It's awesome. :)

You can totally write 9k in six weeks! I believe in you! *cheers*

IKR? I get so impatient and I have been waiting for this FOREVER. Apparently right when it was due to release, the film company that produced it went under and then got bought by some other company and they had to renegotiate the release - idek. I only knew about it because it filmed in my state and they were sending out calls for local military people to come down and be extras. In particular, paratroopers. The BFF's brother is a paratrooper and was thinking about going to do it and when he asked her about it, she was all, "DO IT!! It's Red Dawn!" and then realized JDM was in it and was like, "Please, please, do it!!" Sadly, he did not but since then we were like, "When will it come out!!!???"

Awwwww, really? That makes me all blushy. I am glad they motivate more people than just me. :)

Thank you, bb! In the last four weeks, I have written 7,300 words. I just looked it up and I am sitting here kind of shocked right now to see that. Of course not all of it was on those four fics I set aside to finish - I did get a little distracted by some Danny/Martin and some Eliot/Hardison, but still...I finished two of the four fics already, The Nephew's back-to-school fic and...YOUR FIC!! It's done!!! I even got a beta for it, which I rarely bother with a beta but I want it to be perfect. I can't wait to post it this weekend!

Sadly, he did not

HOW could he pass that up?! It's JDM! Crazy person! :p I mean, I would jump at the chance to be an extra in a movie anyway, but JDM!

In the last four weeks, I have written 7,300 words.

Wow! That is a LOT! I wish I could get my writing groove back. This month is gonna be pretty bad as it is, but maybe I can blame England or something? It's not really, that, though, it was like this before I went to. What's wrong with me? I miss liking to write, if that makes sense. I mean, I HAVE written, and while I did it I mostly enjoyed it, but it's the before part, the getting myself to do it part, that's way harder than it used to. I keep going on Tumblr instead, and then I just lose myself in that and surface an hour later with no motivation to do anything ever. I think I should stop being on Tumblr, but it's so hard to stop!

Wow. Sorry about that rant. I'm gonna give this a try, though, and see if it helps: no Tumblr for the rest of the week. Period.

ANYWAY, back to you! And the fact that you finished and posted my fic! *throws confetti all over you* I know I already left you a rambling comment of love over there, but I just have to say again that I loved it SO MUCH. And that you are the best. And that I love you. *throws more confetti*

IKR?! I swear, I am constantly wanting to smack BFF's Brother and then when he goes, "What was that for?" I can just be all, "JDM, man!" lol

This month is gonna be pretty bad as it is, but maybe I can blame England or something? It's not really, that, though, it was like this before I went to.

No, no, it IS England. It's the stress and worry you have about going/being there. Stress levels fuck up my mojo so hard - cut yourself some slack, you are doing BIG THINGS right now. Seriously.

I mean, I HAVE written, and while I did it I mostly enjoyed it, but it's the before part, the getting myself to do it part, that's way harder than it used to.

Sitting down to actually DO IT (and not letting myself get distracted by other things once the computer is on) has always been my problem. So if I make myself just write a little bit each week, I find that once I am sitting down, I always end up writing more.

I keep going on Tumblr instead, and then I just lose myself in that and surface an hour later with no motivation to do anything ever. I think I should stop being on Tumblr, but it's so hard to stop!

Tumbler is a black-hole! It sucks you in and you never get out! /throws you a rope to pull you out/ Honestly, you are stressed and having school work and in a new place and if you want to spend all your free time in the ridiculous pretty that is Tumbler, you go right ahead.

I already left you a rambling comment of love over there, but I just have to say again that I loved it SO MUCH. And that you are the best. And that I love you. *throws more confetti*

Awww, I love you too, babe. I have to say, I was expecting that you would be the only person who read it. I figured most people would be like, "Lindsey/Cas/Dean? What?" and move on, but I was surprised to get a few comments from people on the fic. So that was nice. The best part was you exploding all over my LJ about it - you have no idea how much that made my day/week/month.

Haha, you should do that! Smack him from me too! ;)

You know, I needed to hear this so bad. I actually read it a few days ago, but then I had to go and cry for a bit. It was the good kind of crying, though, so don't feel bad! I just needed someone to tell me that, so thank you. *hugs you*

So if I make myself just write a little bit each week, I find that once I am sitting down, I always end up writing more.

That's usually how it works for me too. Once I'm sitting there with the word document actually open, I end up writing. Sometimes I end up writing a LOT. There's just that initial resistance to get over. Stupid resistance.

Tumbler is a black-hole! It sucks you in and you never get out!

Ain't that the truth! Come for the pretty, stay for the gorgeous, or something. :p

I was surprised to get a few comments from people on the fic.

That's great! Everyone should read it, it is awesome! :D

Aw, honey. Well I am glad my words helped, even if it made you cry. I have known a few people who tried to do study abroad for a semester and couldn't handle it, so the fact that you are there and doing it, is a HUGE DEAL. I am really happy for you.

I know, me too. Why is that resistance like that? It's like drawing blood to get me to sit down to write which Idk why because I LOVE to write. It's very strange.

That's great! Everyone should read it, it is awesome! :D

I got another comment this week from someone! I am happy to know people read the fic.

Things are either awesome or awful right now, but I guess that's part of the experience. I'm pretty stubborn, though, so I'm not going home, no way. :)

Ugg, right?! I need to force myself to open a word doc, but them it usually flows. Our brains are weird.
