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.


  1. Good for you! It's always amazing when something like that happens.

  2. Thanks mizavery. Hopefully I'll get to the point someday where I can write without being inspired, but right now I'm grateful when I can write anything at all. :)
