Written for the [livejournal.com profile] bittybang challenge.

Summary: Excuses are easy to manufacture, harder to sell.
Warnings: Boybands, RPF.
Also: Enormous thanks are due to the following people: [livejournal.com profile] llamabitchyo and [livejournal.com profile] trumpeterofdoom for hand-holding of the highest quality, [livejournal.com profile] etsu_88 for the squeefulest cheerleading in the world ("the Davids" are all for you, babe!) and [livejournal.com profile] phaballa for an awesome beta (if it's still not American enough, it's not your fault!)

Illustrations are by the utterly fabulous [livejournal.com profile] pensnest, included here at her request. There is one for each section. If you have feedback specific to the artwork, feel free to leave it here (I will forward them) or leave comments on the illustrations themselves, which are on Pen's Photobucket account.

First drafts for [livejournal.com profile] bittybang are due on Friday. Which is awesome; I've had my draft for a couple of weeks now, but still don't have a summary, and it's hard to invent one. At some point in the next couple of days I shall have to!

I've been busy with life-stuff, so writing on The Plan has been stalled for a while. Would like to get at least a few more words on it before I have to edit [livejournal.com profile] bittybang and start on SeSa.

I'm also obsessing about Supernatural a lot. I'm up to 3x14 and really enjoying the show so far. I have a little bunch to watch before I'm done! [livejournal.com profile] etsu_88 kindly uploaded up to 4x06 for me, so I shall soon be completely up to date.

I haven't done any fic-reading for the longest time - like, months - mostly because my illness has been making it hard to concentrate. And now I'm starting to feel better and I'm dying to have something good to get my teeth into. I'm not really very well-read in popslash, and would love to have something cool and new-to-me to read. Would love something long, like, 10k+ long. Anyone have anything specific to recommend?

(I am not choosy on pairings, kinks or plotlines, particularly - but I AM choosy about quality. Which is silly in fanfic, I know, but there you have it.)

And finally. Because tomorrow's the final day for sign-ups, I'll provide another pimp. If you haven't signed up for MtYG yet, WHY NOT?!

This concludes my Stuff for today.

  • I'm so impatient for SeSa sign-ups. I'm taking part in a test for it this weekend (about which I'm very excited!), and just the thought of it is getting me all geared-up for the real thing. Roll on Christmas!

  • I'm doing some serious thinking about my writing process and what works and doesn't work for me. So far I have discovered that the half-hour goals are fabulous for producing words, but not so much for producing words I like. (Whether that's an indication that I need to do more pre-planning, write slower, or be prepared to do more editing work, I'm not entirely sure.) I know that an exhaustive scene-by-scene plan doesn't work for me, as it tends to kill my desire to write the story, which is a fragile and precious thing. More thoughts on this as I continue.

  • I feel a bit like something is missing from my [livejournal.com profile] bittybang story, but I've resolved not to look at it again - beyond writing the required summary for the challenge - until the start of November. It's cool to have the time and leisure both to edit it, and to give myself some space and perspective on it before I start the editing process. (Weird, though - this'll be the first story I've ever tried that with. I hope I don't kill it like that.) Not sure if this is the right thing, but all the writing advice I've ever read says it's easier to edit something it if you put it away for a while. Time to find out if that's true for me.

  • I need to start thinking about when and how to run my Badfic Challenge next year. The only challenge I've ever done was the June Bug (which was pretty easy and I still sucked at it!) so I'm not sure how to go about it, really. Any tips, seasoned fans?

  • I'm worried about how the hell I'm going to finish "The Plan". What I've written so far is really different from what I wanted to write and while I've never written something this long, I discovered that getting down words-any-words isn't all that hard. I've never edited something this long, either, though, and the sheer size of the job ahead of me is really intimidating. Plus, I've only written half of the story, so I need to put the editing part of it out of my mind for now.

  • I think that's all for now!

Yay. I have something that basically works for [livejournal.com profile] bittybang!

[is so fucking happy]

There is some editing to be done but basically? Yay.
