Orli Turkey
 I am itching to write a multi-chapter VigOrli. 

Really itching. 

But for some reason, I just can't get going. Started it many times, with many different plot bunnies, got maybe one chapter going, and then dumped it as not good enough. I know the basic way that I want the story to go. I am talking modern day, present time AU. Angst, hurt/comfort, fluffy moments. Sex. The works, basically. 

What I am probably lacking is confidence. 

There are so many great, long, V/O Au's out there, how can I make mine worth reading? 

I want to read a really great, long, angsty, H/C AU and since no one is writing at the moment, I guess what I want is to make my own. 

If I could only get going. *sigh* 

Any advice, people?

  • I have written long fics before, sweetie. Two, in fact. 19 and 27 chapters! I still can't believe the second one was that long. :) I do think that I can do this, I just need to sort out the plot and direction in my head and go with it.

    Maybe I am just procrastinating, I don't know. I think I am a perfectionist too. LOL. It's driving me mad!

    • Oops, sorry. I somehow got the impression that you're a "new" writer. :)

      Procrastinating is my middle name, I fear. ;P Not just in writing fiction, but in other things as well. So don't worry, you're not alone! I've also noticed that I need to be in a certain mood to be able to write, to feel genuinely inspired so to speak. When the mood is right the words come out easily, if the mood is wrong I can't write anything worth posting. *g*
      • Not new to writing, but certainly new to writing V/O and slash. Of the two that I have written, one was a LOTR adventure, the other an Orlando het. :) Maybe it is foraging into the world of writing slash that is scaring me the most. :(
