I’ve been doing lots of writing this month.

I procrastinated on my [info]unconventionalcourtship fic by writing six Doctor Who drabbles for Merry Month of Drabbles. Which I really enjoyed writing.

I finished off a fic I started in 2018 that’s a sequel to one [info]selenay wrote for me in an exchange. At one point it was 4905 words and I was determined to get up to 5000 even though I kept taking words out when editing. And also realised I had forgotten that since I’ve set it during SJA’s run that it’s before smartphones…

I recently listened to the latest UNIT audio and realised there is potential for Sarah & Harry fic, which they can’t do in the audios. But since I reject the idea that Sarah dies at any point, I can totally write.

After writing 5000+ word fics, writing under 1000 words is so much quicker and easier.

After about four revisions of plot and POV I think I finally have a first draft of my [info]unconventionalcourtship fic that I don’t hate. And no excuse not to finish it now…
