I hate these periods of un-creativity. Before this crap with my head started, I never had them. There were always stories and conversations running through my head. Now I get these blank times, when there's nothing there.

It scares the holy crap out of me. I don't know how to be alone in my own damn head. How do you get through boring lectures or 223 viewings of A Christmas Carol without being able to listen to the stories in your head instead of what's going on out in the real world? I don't know how to be one of those people, damnit. I had to step away from my moderating duties at Tazlure for a few days. I just can't handle sitting there staring at the screen while nothing comes. It makes me feel horrible. I'd rather just not think about it for a while.

Anyway, enough whining. musesfool has posted the Remix Redux stories. Some of them are just fucking brilliant. Someone whom I really don't know remixed Ceremony into something completely unrecognizable but absolutely fabulous. I have to drop her an email.

My favorite so far has to be the remix of Victoria P's Best Laid Plans. BLP is probably my favorite X-Men story, aside from Jenn's awesome Love and Lust at Mutant High series, so I was not really very hopeful when I saw that it had been remixed. How can you mess with something that good already, right? But the Remix author totally did it. They caught the other perspective and made it seamless.

It kicks ass.

musesfool also beta-read my Remix entry for me. Which was really nice of her, considering how much she had to do for the remix in the first place. I was actually pretty happy with how it turned out. Much better than my first attempt.

Don't know what's up with me and the slash writing lately. Once you dip a toe in that pool you seem to get wet awfully quickly. (And no, there was no double entendre there, thank you.) In addition to the Remix, there's Inevitable, and now another one that a friend prodded me into writing. She wanted it more porny though. I don't write the sex. I try, but it always morphs from specifics to generalities. It's almost finished, along with the next chapter of Female, but due to my creative difficulties . . . . Well I've already been down that ranting road, so I won't go again.

My latest obsession is Web Comics. I read about six of them regularly, and am stumbling on new ones all the time. Don't know what's up with that. I'm enjoying them though.

Okay, I need to go do work-type things now.

Link Diverting me at the Moment: (It's funny because it's not funny. Plus my friend in high school drew a comic so similar to this its eerie)
