Daily Count Challenge to . . . CanDream!

Between our water cutting out early Monday morning and doctor appointments, my weekend (Tuesday and Wednesday) has been completely buggered. It looks like the best I'm going to be able to get out is 1500, which I did get yesterday but had delayed in posting because I'd hoped to be able to get some more words in early this morning -- and it's just not happening. :( Better luck today, candream!

And on another note, how do you guys feel about dropping out of challenges? I've got a challenge that's buggering me. The fic is pretty much written, but I feel like it needs a little doctoring and it has to be betaed, or at least self-betaed, before posting. I really think the idea of having to look at that process again is part of what's hindering my inspiration, and it also doesn't help that the main character has something wrong with her with which I just had a brush myself and I don't really want to think about that sort of thing right now. I feel like I'd be able to better write if I didn't have that hung around my neck, but I also feel guilty when I think about giving in and dropping out of the challenge.

Thank you for this advice, as belated as it is. :) I did FINALLY finish that story and am quite happy I did! I also have to admit to curiosity: You "got together" with one of those commenters?? I love Internet romances, and writer romances. :) My life partner and I actually stopped fighting our feelings when we were writing an EPIC series way back in the day.

Yeah, it's sort of a long story, and I apologise in advance if you heard any of it before, since I know that you and my boyfriend are mutual friends on LJ.

eternal_moonie and I actually connected properly through this community, specifically the A-Z challenge when I started an A-Z series on Pretty Little Liars and carried it on as he kept encouraging me, rather than stop at A Is For Alone as I originally thought I would. (This was about a year after the Vampire Diaries fic mentioned in my above comment). We didn't end up friending each other until somewhere around L Is For Legend, but once we did, we realised that we actually have a lot more in common, from Arrowverse to OUAT via How To Get Away With Murder. You would not believe the number of times we've gone to say the same thing at the same time - the "Lyra from Supergirl looks kinda like Anya in vengeance demon mode" said at the same time being a classic example, hence the icon.

Over time we ended up chatting online every night, and that eventually developed into a relationship - for 2 years now, although I'd known for a long time before that ever since the day when he'd just got back from holiday and still took the time to make me feel better after my relatives had just been in an accident.

Right now we live 300 miles apart, which I hate, but I know it isn't forever.

So yeah, that's my story, and I have to admit, I'm intrigued by yours now too!
