Well, fic is hard.

I'm like halfway through my first ever attempt at it, for a kinkmeme prompt, and going soooo slowly.

I'm completely new to writing fanfic, but I really want to do it and do it well, because it turns out I have a lot of feelings. Like, character feelings but also goddammit-there-ought-to-be-more-femslash-and-different-shades-of-queerness feelings. Really just more stuff that isn't pretty cis boys - nothing against pretty cis boys and I sure do like reading about them because yum, but let's have more ladies and non-binary folks yes please.

But I'm so SLOW and I know it's going to be a while before I get into the swing of this and meantime I'm sure my writing is going to continue to piss me off because it's not a tenth as good as I'd like it to be and dear lord, this was supposed to be fun?!?!

Okay let's have more tea and attempt to finish this fill.

Haha welcome to fanficland! If you want to toss ideas around or brainstorm or whatever that sometimes helps the slowness. Good luck either way :)

The kink meme eats souls, it is known. I certainly don't have one left, anyway.

You too, good luck with your work and your fill!

*waves hi*

I agree heartily, but apparently can manage to write about nothing but Javert at this point (with PAINFUL SLOWNESS why so hard, writing?), so am a giant hypocrite. I keep wanting to write complicated canon-era Cosette/Eponine AUs and then my brain derails at the complexity....

It really is! I mean, I guess there are easyish ways to do it, but I don't personally find them as satisfying as the idea of them actually having to work through all the Past History and class issues and whatnot.

(I am glad you liked it! I need to do more rec posts...)
