YAY! Another scene finished. I'm currently at 2657 words! I've also got some betas - Roz (kermitfries00
) as always will be doing the basics while Cally (eldestmuse
) will be handling character corrections. Which is awesome because I'm having trouble keeping Eric in character - or even knowing if he is
in character. Anyway, sample below!

I've discovered a new method of productive writing via this fic. Recently I've put together a binder where I can write my first drafts for fanfic. I write original fic as well, but atm I'm experimenting with some new methods I learned at a recent writers convention. Usually, when I write fanfiction of any kind, my brain makes me stop every ten words to find that perfect language but the only way to write productively is to get the basic actions and reactions down first, and prettify it later. I've found that if I find a themesong for the story, blast it almost loud enough that I can't think, I'm able to get the gist of the scene down. Then, when I type it up, I clarify the actions, extend scenes and dialogues and work the language so that it fits my vision of "good writing".
What about you guys? How do you write, f-list?
