...is that they're hard to write. I've been hammering away at the next part of Treasures of Lost Gallifrey and it's just killing me. I wrote myself into this corner, I know, and I have to write my way out of it to get to the next good/hard bit. Writing this bit will make the next bits juicier and more interesting but, well, um, wow.

One of the things that's come out of all the workshopping and classes I've done is that I have a really hard time writing conflict. This is an old challenge of mine. I avoid it like the plague. (See? Even now, I'm procrastinating, not writing.) I've got to get over that.

And now, um, back to it. Yeah. Right. This is me, heading back to it....

This story is going on hiatus while I'm out of the country. I'll be writing while I'm gone an hope to return with it completed. My apologies for leaving people hanging. :-(

Two pieces in progress, each vying for my attention:

1) A piece set during the Year That Didn't Happen (for the [livejournal.com profile] telling_a_story ficathon). Martha is in Seattle, trying to find a pirate radio station that can help her get the word out. In the process, she meets a local radio personality who's had a very tough time and needs to be convinced that Martha's message is worth the bandwidth (in what may be the weirdest crossover fic this fandom will ever see). Former Microsoft employees are trying to hack the Archangel Network. The toclafane are using the top of the Space Needle as a hub for operations. Must finish this thing.

2) A piece that started out as a way to write an encounter between Jack and Nine but is turning into a proper adventure that may not have any sexual content at all . . . in which case, since I want to write at least one Jack/Nine smut (I still don't know why, except to get it out of my system), I have to come up with another idea. Or just write the smut sans plot and get it over with (which doesn't respect the characters but may make me happy).

And in a development I didn't expect, over at A Teaspoon and An Open Mind, more than 450 people have read "To Be Sure," and several have liked it enough to leave reviews. I'm sort of shocked. "Redecoration" got a quarter of that sort of attention.
