My cursor mocks me…  
*head desk. head desk!*

Why can't I do this?

I've been sitting at my computer alternating between staring at a blank screen and writing absolute crap for DAYS! I need to finish my "Anywhere but Cardiff" ficathon entry by the end of next week or I'm seriously screwed. I know from begining to end what I want to happen. I have whole conversations in my head played out in absolute brilliance but for some reason they refuse to be translated onto the page.

AHHHHHHH!!! *runs around desk pulling own hair out*

I'm very frustrated right now, in case you couldn't tell.

Ya know...I might know the problem. Maybe it's because it's 9. I know that would suck, but if it helps you get it done, then what the heck. So maybe try changing it to 10 and see if anything flows better. *shrugs* Maybe it will help maybe it won't lol

I appreciate the thought, really I do. And you might actually have a point there. Nine is a lot more difficult to write than Ten is. The problem is though, that the plot I've come up with will not work with Ten. Ten isn't dark enough. So it's Nine or nothing. I just have to make myself write it. And if it's crap, well I'm sure everyone will be nice enough to just not comment at all. *grimaces*

Ah, that's exactly what I was wondering at, if the plot was maybe better for ten. But your right, with Rose he isn't nearly as dark as 9 (without Rose is another story). But alas, I'm still excited to see it when ever you get around to it :)
(lol I thought a friend gave you a good idea? I know it wasn't me cause I haven't heard anything about this fic *pouts* lol. See, now you've given me spoilers, and all I want is more...and that's a bad thing lol)

By the way, in case I forget to email you before you get off tonight (that sounded wrong. and I don't think i'll forget but hey you never know) Have a fun weekend, and if you fall, don't catch youself with your hands, I broke my wrist that way!

ooh ouch! No, I wont fall, because I'm probably going to be hugging the wall the whole time. Such is the cowardice of my life.

Anyway, I think I found the problem. This story is insisting on being written in present tence, so I hope it doesn't annoy the crap out of everyone. I tried and failed to write it the way I wanted to, so the fanfic muses have spoken and so everyone is going to get what they get. C'est la vis.
