fun fact! - the turnip patch

fun fact!
Man, I remember a time when missing a weekly fic post was out of the ordinrary, not the norm. =p

*rummages through bag o' funfacts*  Here we go: The Best Laid Plans was written in about four days.  The first one, anyway.  I had the idea, I was ready to write it, I noticed the gwyaoi novella challenge was due in a week, I got curious, thought maybe I might qualify for length and theme... so I wrote it.  If I got it done on time and made the min length requirement, then I would submit.  If I didn't, I wouldn't.  No big deal.  Got it in a couple days in advance of the deadline in case there was something wrong with it.

And now, four novellas later... =p

And now, four novellas later, I'll be taking bets on when the next will insist on being written. ^____^

Geez.  *glares at it* I need to just bull forward on that thing and stop thinking so hard about it. =p

Have you threatened it? Sometimes that works for me. ^___^

All I ask is that the troops line up in an orderly fashion! x_x

Meh, I probably just need to sit down one day, take some time, and carefully explain the situation to the boys.  Maybe they can come up with some ideas on their end.

Duo's first couple of ideas will be ridiculous, of course, but Heero will Look at him and he'll settle down. ^___^

Four... days? O.o;

Yeah... I imagine I didn't have much going on at the time.  =p  I had a vague outline for a long time.  Four days was mostly just filling in the blanks in the outline.  *sigh*  I miss the days when it was all so easy.  And I long for another fic that can be so simply outlined and then just 'filled' in.  *siiiiiigh*

... You know, I think those were just the days before 'plot'.  Man, I need to write something without plot again.  I miss not having to think.

Back before the days of massive expectation? *grin*

I don't think there's a huuuuge expectation. *looks around nervously* *knocks on wood* Unlike some people, I'm not chugging away at a sequel or anything. =) I got all my loose ends tied up, or I'm producing and releasing at the same time.  And I managed to dodge the novella bullet this year when gwyaoi went awol.

Mostly, I just blame the damn bunnies.  Stupid things keep feeding me plots when they know damn well how terrible I am with them!  Where are all the fluffy, cuddly bunnies?  No, I get the ones that just think they're sooo clever!  Sheesh.  Write your own damn selves, you stupid bunnies!  *shakes fist*

[ by the way, that hamster in that Bolt disney movie?  makes the price of a movie ticket sooooo worth it! ]

You know, I'm not a huge one for going to the theatre anymore... no patience, but that damn hamster... he tempts me! ^o^
