emeraldstag: Sailor Moon's Usagi & Luna (emma)
 I've been slowly wading my way through my creative sludge in my spare time but I as of yet have nothing to show for it. As a result this journal has suffered in the wake of quicker less thought needed avenues like twitter/tumblr. Mostly twitter. That said, there is a lot of fan stuff that I don't share there that I would here but it's that extra step of having to come over to DW/LJ to post where honestly I haven't cultivated new friends on for awhile. There are a few holdouts but even those post infrequently. It's mostly become a comm place for me of late, and I enjoy that still but I do miss some of the friendships here that is hard to get some of the same interaction on the more distracting platforms of twitter/tumblr.

Anyway, as a way to restart the activity on this journal I wanted to mention that besides my main tumblr account (that is more reblogs than blog posts that I put here too) I've begun a more fanfic focused tumblr which will be what I'm reading, what I'm thinking, what I'm writing, fic recs, etc on the fandoms I follow (mostly Comics, Glee, Harry Potter, Mass Effect, Merlin, Smallville but I sometimes talk about other ones that I probably won't ever write for or older ones like Star Wars. Just depends. I never thought I'd find something to challenge HP/Smallville and then I found Glee last year.) With that outlet, it will increase what I write here and hopefully energize me enough to start writing again.

Sometimes I think too much, and that keeps my creativity from coming out. More writey, less thinking.

That business out of the way, I regret not producing anything for Porn Battle. I had about 500 words down but it was the last night, hours left on the deadline, I was dead tired and it was my first real attempt at writing fic for public consumption in over a year and I just wasn't feeling it. I came to the realization that really I should have the ideas ready before PB starts, it just creeps up on me every damn year. Especially now that it's only once a year.

Also I'm probably reading way too much, cuts into my writing time badly. I was able to shut it down during Nanowrimo but now not so much.  That brings me to a frustrating moment I had this weekend while reading a fic. That moment when you are reading a great fic that you are enjoying for being original and unique but then the latest chapter out comes all the tropes/cliches that the fandom is filled with.

In this case, Harry Potter. A soul bond resulting in mind speak, instant marriage, married rooms at Hogwarts, instant adulthood and the arrival of a huge inheritance/lordship for Harry via Gringotts.  All in one chapter. Sigh.
