Insanity is My Gift

If anyone had any doubt about my sanity, besides me, which I really don't because I know I'm insane, I have proof. Not only am I wrapping up a cross-stitch project, but I have just signed up for ds_c6d_bigbang and spn_j2_bigbang. And they have extended the sign-ups/posting for jossverse_bb and I'm really tempted. I need a kick in the butt to finish a story I've had plans for for years.

Yeah. Not a typo. Actual years.

Does it count as writer's block when you can come up with ideas, but getting them on paper is the problem? Or is that just pathetic?

It's not pathetic! :) I don't think it's writer's block, either. In my opinion, it's a matter of practice. I had that very same problem for a while - I've learned to just write through it. The *only* thing that ever worked was to just write. Then I had to throw out the crap and start over. The more I did this, the less crap I wrote. Writing fic went a long way to helping me out of that, too.

Yay for big bangs! I tried the Atlantis big bang last year and had to drop out. I don't think I'll try again this year because I've got two very big projects to work on through the year, but I do so love big bang stories!

Thanks for the reassurance. It is also real difficult for me to turn off the inner editor, but sometimes I can manage.

Have you finished the Atlantis big bang? I'd love to read it, if you have. Or even if you haven't.

Go you! I think I'll probably do the deancasbigbang again this year. I had a really great experience last year, so I'm looking forward to it.

Getting ideas on paper is often a problem for me. I hate it when I have a Word document open and glaring at me, and I can't figure out how to get past my block.
