I’m very happy that Transgressions is finally moving along. Over the last 2 days I’ve written 1600 words or so and that’s more than I’ve put on a page for months, fanfic included. For those of who who’ve migrated from my other LJ you’ll know it’s been an albatross around my neck for over 2 years while I’ve been honing my skills (such as they are!!) in fandom. I’ve had a lot of support from people and a lot of patience from these beta-reading but it’s moving – at bloody last, and I can see the end of the tunnel (unless it’s a big bloke with a torch…) (although that might be quite nice too)

When it comes right down to it, I tried to blame my block on just about everything, from not listening to classical music, to being seperated from at work (which was true, a little bit, as we’d talk about it during the day and I would get inspired by her input) to not knowing how to bridge a gap of 3 years – to a million other things, but I think the story dictated itself. When I was ready, it was going to come, and it is – slowly.

However it’s hard. Have any of you written something so dark that you didn’t want to continue with it? It’s like the bit in The Lord of the Rings when Sam says that there’s a bit in books where you want to shut the book, well, this bit is a bit like that. It’s horrible and I’m causing my boys unnecessary pain and suffering. It’s just as well they can’t sue me.

Hold on boys. end in sight. We can do it!
