Haven't done one of these in a while, partly due to being busy, but also because I haven't done much work on this. *cowers* I just finished a new chapter, however, and have finally adjusted my draft mindset from "make it perfect" to "get it done". Fingers crossed!

36600 / 20000 (183.00%)
You guyssss,

I hit 30 000 words last night on
[info]spn_j2_bigbang thanks in no small part to [info]plentyofowls, who was churning out massive amounts of Dean/Cas porn for the sake of inspiration. Hey, that shit works.

30000 / 20000 (150.00%)

I still have no idea how long it will be, or if I'll even finish, but at least it's going? I probably would have accomplished more last week had I not been confined to my bed, sick. But them's the breaks.
I've decided that [livejournal.com profile] obstinatrix has got it right - I couldn't possibly begin to guess the total length of my [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang project, but I can provide updates on how far I've blown the minimum wordcount so far.

25000 / 20000 (125.00%)

So that's a rather nice feeling right there. What's not so nice is that I still worry I won't be able to wrap up the first draft in time. o.O

Just finished Chapter 3 of [info]spn_j2_bigbang - as good a landmark as any to provide a quick update. Definitely getting there!

18334 / 40000 (45.84%)
Whee, I hit the 15, 000 word mark! I'm in the middle of a porn scene, so that'll probably go up a bit by the time I'm done (or by the time someone's done, at any rate), but nevertheless I felt like this was a landmark worth sharing. :)

15000 / 20000 (75.00%)

However, since it's unlikely that I'll be finished at 20, 000 words, the counter should probably look more like this:

15000 / 40000 (37.50%)
So, durr. Back to work.
In the spirit of my [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang AU, I thought I'd share this video of the most amazing thing I've ever seen in my life. My new life plan has officially expanded to include, "Purchase a lake and build a wave garden." I'm sure "Learn to surf" is on there too, don't worry.

If you're a big geek like me, you can check out more videos at Wave-Garden.com. If you already happen to be in possession of a lake, I expect this to be installed immediately. I shall await my invitation in the mail.

Somehow managed to finish Chapter Two of my [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang entry last night. I don't know how this happened, but I sort of expect it to backfire on me really quickly, either through my inability to finish, or by exploding the total wordcount (I doubt it'll end at 20k).

9152 / 20000 45.76% Done!

It's time.

6997 / 20000 34.99% Done!

That's right. Time to be totally counterproductive as I update my [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang wordcount tracker every 2 minutes.
So, I found a couple things today that I have to share with y'all.

this at Rill's Tumblr, which I can't stop staring at for its sheer brilliance.

We Drank a Thousand Times by [info]glorious_spoon. Technically it's from last year's [info]spn_j2_bigbang, but somehow I only just discovered it now. By now my (apparently) love for Dean/OMC is old news, but this just broke my heart a million times over and kind of made me want to throw in my hat for When Play Turns Bitter, because this fucking story is just so much... more. But anyway. Please go read it, and tell the author how much your worlds just got rocked, even if it's a year overdue.

[Poll #1666489]
Okay, I have an idea for [info]spn_j2_bigbang. I think.

Are you ready? Here it is:

Irish restaurant AU. Wasabi poisoning! Feuding restaurant staff! Dean and Crowley opening a bar! People getting hit in the back of the head with frying pans! Glen Hansard cameos! Drama! Suspense! Intrigue! Romance! But most important of all... IRISH CAS.
