I have to say I'm not doing so well with getting any more written in my own original fics this year, but I am hoping to. I really liked some of my ideas, but one of the problems I have is that new ideas come forward and take over my brain, and then before I get back to the first one, I feel compelled to start another one... and I have a few sitting in my WIP folder now.
I have consciously tried not to start any new ones lately though, so that maybe I can go back to some of the older ones. I have a couple that are well established - one has 25K written, and I have this idea of exactly where it's supposed to end, so I would like to make that one happen.
I also have another nine chapters in, and I have actually posted six of them, but I kind of stalled when I got to the chapter that needed the female lead to take centre stage, and I can't seem to get around that. I wanted to ask if anyone else has as much trouble writing female characters as I do? I find men easier, strangely enough, and I'm not sure why this is - maybe because I've been writing a lot of men for a long time - but any thoughts you have on the subject, or discussions on your own difficulties or ease with characters may be as good a place as any to start today.
