AN: Okay... So my definition of a couple of weeks is different that others. :)
I think I'm finally good with the flow of the story. more importantly, I'm good with the direction this fic is now going in. I've reposted everything (the re-written chapters are named in the headings).

DISCLAIMER: I do not own any of the DWP characters.
WARNINGS: there will be violence, drug use/abuse, and possibly non-con/dub sexual situations among other things. If you have triggers for any of these please be warned. I will try to warn you with a *Chapter Warning* if and when the story touch those harsher points.

Without Summer and Ignorance

I was looking over the stories today since I was stuck for overtime at work. I've decided that I don't like the format Without Summer is in. So I'm going to end up changing the order of things to make it flow better. I was going to put all my rough drafts here, but I use my phone more than my computer right now and its easier to back up the story with the cloud than livejournal.

If you are reading this and happen to be following the story on ff.net, I should finally be updating Without Summer in a couple more weeks. It feels weird to add to the story after such a long hiatus. I actually want to have the entire story written before I post, but the way my life is eating up my time, if I did I'd never post.

If you are reading this and hoping that I've done something with Ignorance, then good news I have. I can't say its done, but it's progressed a hell of a lot further in plot than Without. I think that it maybe it's because, the two stories are so different from each other.

Without Summer is my first story. It feels like the larger, more complex story in my head. It'll get dark and hopefully gritty. It's about the lives of two women trying to find each other at the end of the world. I don't want it to be fluffy and sweet no matter how much I'm inclined to make it. The mood and environment wouldn't allow such a thing in large doses. I'd read over it and say: "WTF that makes no sense!" That can't be a good thing when you're the writer.

Ignorance was started as part of the July fic-a-thon over at the Devil Wears Prada livejournal page. It's supposed to be fluffy and humorous and simple. It's already more complex than I had initally intended. I should have ended the story where I did. It had a complete plot and the story could have stopped there. I would have had to change the summary slightly though and apparently I was too ambitious to do that. Now I'm trying to meet the requirements I've set myself in saying that what I posted  was only part one. *facepalm* Oh, well.

The next time I start a story on paper. I think that I won't post it until its complete. I feel guilty that I'm not a faster writer. I just can't wait to write sometimes if and image or a scene comes to me so I rarely have the entire story plot point by plot point worked out completely. I only have a vague idea of where the characters are going to end up most times. The next story I do will have a complete plot point summary and maybe write out the entire summary before I post. At least I'll try. :)

Well. Its been nearly a year. The weather's been horrible here. Nothing but icy, cold sub-zero inducing winds and mounds of snow that I remove only to have them reappear the next day. I guess mood is necessary for writing. So because I'm long past ready for this never-ending winter to be over, you get a completed chapter. Yea! (Really, I'll take anything by now.) I have started Chapter Four but I make no promises on its completion, this cold snap could end any day now.

See Prologue for disclaimers.

Writter's Block: Ignorance and Without Summer

So.

Apparently, my muse had decided to take a hiatus from work for a while and then RL got busy. I've written some of the next sections out on paper but I'm still not quite ready to post them anywhere other than here. Ignorance is at the moment closer to being complete if only because I'm having trouble getting into the right frame of mind in order to work on Without Summer. I did manage to work up two brief plotpoints. I'm hoping that these'll keep me on track for the direction I want to go. This is especially true for Without Summer. I just don't know when I want to introduce Miranda and what the reader really needs to know about all the players I want to introduce. Hell, I'm halfway inclined to take it down and do a total rewrite but I actually like whats there so far for the most part.

To add to everything, I became (and am still to tell the truth) fascinated (obsessed) with stop motion puppetry and am in the process of making DWP characters for a short short film. But making the characters look like the characters is difficult. I've never worked in clay and have always been too ambitious for my own good. This is so far out of my league that I can't see the other side of it. Oh well, dream big. If this side project ever goes anywhere I'll make sure to post it to the DWP livejournal page. I do afterall owe them a video.

I looked at the DWP livejournal website the other day and saw that they have another challenge for the month of October. I'd like to join, but since I have two unfinished works, I don't think I'll try my luck. Maybe, if I finish and post Chapter Three for Without Summer and Part 2 for Ignorance, AND finish a short Halloween themed story before October 1st, then I'll sign up for later in the month. But I'm not really holding my breath. Too many things are up in the air.
