Tony Stark--Anteaters


I suck.

I've written all of 36 words today. I need to write 214 more. This shouldn't be a hardship, considering what I'm doing in this scene.

Remember how I suck at emotions?

Yeah, that.

So, I'm struggling with it, a little. And instead of staring at the page and making little typing motions with my fingers...

I'm making a bearded vamped!Robert icon.

Here's the original:


*headdesks repeatedly*

If anyone finds my brain, could you return it, please? I miss it terribly.
Tony Stark--Anteaters

Okay, I don't suck quite so hard.

The scene sucks, but I don't. Over 500 words on the day, and I'm going to pop "Restoration" into my computer here pretty soon, as my RDJ obsession continues apace. This is the sort of scene that needs to percolate overnight and then be repaired the next day. Because that thing I said before about sucking at emotions? I still haz it.

What's funny is, that I sit here and obsessively refresh my wordcount as I'm doing this, and I go, you know, just another hundred and fifty words, and I'll crack the next thousand. That shouldn't be hard, right? And that gives me incentive to keep going. Because it's just a drabble and a half. Anyone should be able to do that...

But not!Harmony has come to a tough realization about herself, and not!Perry has just given her some pretty good advice. Maybe these two crazy kids will make it after all, even if one's a bloodsucking demon from beyond the grave and the other has what I'm going to refer to as a Wilson Complex. Or possibly a Cameron Complex, although Cam seems to have gotten over hers because Chase doesn't seem to need fixing.

The more I look at this icon, the better I like it. I'm keeping it until Halloween.

And there's over a thousand words on the day, and I just cracked 42K. Finally, more witty banter. The last several thousand words have been...rather heavy.

I shall reward myself with a period romance starring RDJ.

And I just did the math. 213 more and I'll have my wordcount for the week. Which is immaterial, since I reset the counter every morning, but it would feel good.

You know what? No. If I feel like taking it up again after I watch "Restoration," then I will, but right now I just want to watch a pretty movie.
