keep calm

Disable auto-formatting

I've been thinking about my WIPs of late. I have a couple now and I don't like that I've got stories that have been exposed to the world that I never finished despite all the good intentions I started out with. I always promised myself I wouldn't do that and... I did it.

So, if you've got a WIP(s) do you have intentions of going back to it/them, do you know which ones are never going to see the light of day again? Are you in denial like me and keep saying to yourself that after X,Y,Z, you'll get back to it, you swear. Do you think of ongoing verses as WIPs? If you're a reader, do you see a chapter heading and back away slowly/quickly? Tell me about them, reassure me that I'm not alone... Or feel free to berate me about the ones I haven't finished, I'm pretty sure I deserve it.

I've finally, finally made a start on my SG-1 remix fic which *looks at watch* is horribly lax of me. I'm not sure why it took so long for me to work up to it. Mostly I think I have this kind of weird reaction to remixes of any kind where I get all keen and excited and then totally fail with the follow through.

I'm also a little worried about the way I'm remixing this time, taking a small element of the original story and kind of spinning outwards. I'm just hoping my remixee likes it or at least doesn't want to have me hung, drawn and quartered.

I keep writing these little stories in my brain while I'm driving or in the supermarket or lying in bed or whatever in other people's verses that I will never write because, you know, other people's verses when I should be actually writing my stuff. Ha... like, in poisontaster's Live Free or Die Hard 'verse I've got this whole scenario worked out where Matt accidentally runs into Jack's current partner in a Starbucks. *facepalms*

I've had an influx of new people of late *waves* and I promise to get my Master lists up to date because I'm very aware that's where most of them start out getting to know me.
