Keeping track

Unexpected side effect of working on FFXII and FFX-2 stories simultaneously: Baralai's voice ends up a lot more formal. I have to keep reminding myself that Spira's leaders are not nearly as verbose as those of Ivalice.

I'm actively playing with three stories right now -- one from the alphabet meme, "Aftermath", and an FF12 story that's been bouncing in my head for a couple of weeks at least -- and none of them are going particularly well. Too much atmosphere, not enough plot. This is a problem I've had before, but rarely with so many stories at once. I need to kick-start the bunny generators somehow.

I like working on several things at once. That way if I'm bored or stuck on one thing I can go and do one of the others...the only downside is when I'm stuck on everything, LOL! Then I'm in trouble!

*kicks bunny generator* I hope they start working for you soon!

Thanks! I expect it will start functioning again eventually, it always does. ;)

I like having several irons in the fire at once, too. But as you say, it can make matters worse to be stuck on everything!

Yes! You're right. Unfortunately for me sometimes it starts up at times when I can't get near anything to put it all down, lol!

I learned a few years ago that I was able to function better writing-wise by having several things to work on. Once I get something out for one story, the other ones kind of line up and I flit from one to another. I haven't done that in a while though; I seem to be focused on one story for now.I just have to get it all out until I'm ready to move on I guess.
