I Wrote Something


I wrote something. Finally.

The good news: It's 13,000 words and has a beginning, a middle and an end.

The bad news: It's fan fiction. The Cabin in the Woods fan fiction. OH YEAH.

I don't know what happened. I haven't been able to write a word in months and then by chance I saw The Cabin in the Woods, which punched me in the side of the head with its awesomeness. I couldn't stop thinking about it and in particular, about one minor character who appears on screen for maybe thirty seconds. A story about that character started growing in my head and wouldn't go away so I wrote it down. It was awesome.

That is, having a 13,000 word story come out of nowhere was awesome. The story itself is less than awesome. It needs a lot of editing and based on the number of times my heroine bursts in to tears, I suspect she may be a Mary Sue. It's bad fan fiction and I will probably be doing the world a favor if I never let it see the light of day...

But that's okay, because I wrote something!

P.S. If you're wondering about our move, it's still happening but has been put off until the fall.
