wolf eyes


So, the comments I'm getting on the Faerie Show fic tell me that it kind of sucks like a Hoover. The idea is good; the execution is somewhat...problematic. I've spent most of today, off and on, beating it into some semblance of shape. I hope my new Writing Buddy doesn't look at it and go "Man, what the hell have I gotten myself into? This is terrible." Argh.

Also, no one hates the last 'graph but me.

And I realized that I use the scene with the Fae for a big ol' block of exposition. And I could probably handle that better. The problem is that I like that scene, and I also use it for the reveal of what one of the characters has hidden away until "the proper moment." I know, I know, they say "Kill your darlings," but I don't wanna. *stomps foot*

And I still have no idea what I'm going to do with the A&tS fic to make my protagonist actually, you know, protag. If he blows the museum up, then Merry won't much like him anymore, so that kills that next-to-last scene. I may have him steal something so he can examine it out from under prying eyes...and then get caught. This would be better than destruction, I think.

And I still don't have the Next Thing. None of the WIPs are talking to me, and the Bunnies are staying determinedly in the Hutch.
