the only word for it
Starting to type and make sense of my notebook scribblings, I'm already over 600 words and they haven't even met yet.

I swear I fret over fic way too much. I worry about it making sense with canon, I worry about backstory/headcanon and doing all this set up to make sure her actions/motivations make sense, I look stuff up online so I know I'm at least somewhat realistic. Geez, why so much trouble? Just get them naked already.

D, bless his heart, doesn't help. He throws me this idea and says, "Can't wait to read it! It's going to be a masterpiece!" Like, way to set me up to fail, bro. I can't live up to that. Do people not realize that words like that actually are paralyzing rather than motivating?

I hate writing.

Sometimes I wish I could be like those people who can write reams of OOC fic. They don't care. I wish I could not care.

And people like their OOC fic most of the time! I mean I wouldn't want to be one of those poor souls who have no concept of how to write at all and write reams of fic, but yeah. I like, spend so much time on each 1,000 words that it is ridiculous!
