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 see my characters as that always: characters. No matter how much or little I chose to change from reality when putting them in an AU story, they're still my characters foremost and so I need to know all about them. And given that we put them into situations we often have no idea how the real people would react to anyway, it not only gives us the freedom to write the stories in a way we want, it also means we need to know why they react how they do.
    And if you change everything about them, it's all the more reason to write it down so you don't forget details halfway through. I'm always really anal about such stuff... I worry about the tiniest details. Damn perfectionism. *lol*
