So... Just finished Chapter Twelve of When Play Turns Bitter. With the beta now, post soon hopefully.

11, 078 words, WHAT THE HELL.

I am truly all written-out for the day, so I'll leave you with some Daniel Faraday to describe my current state.

So, this is sort of apropos of nothing, but I wanted to make a post regarding When Play Turns Bitter. I know I have been awful about updating - I probably spoiled everyone with the once-a-week thing, heh - but I am still working on Chapter Twelve, albeit slowly. Ironically, it's pretty much all finished except for that one damn chapter (hell, even the chapter is almost done - I have over 7000 words of it written, and there's just this wee hump at the end that's giving me grief), and I have no other reason for stalling than, well... it's sad. And I've had a lot of bad news lately in my personal circle, including my best friend having cancer, so it's been a) difficult to concentrate on something so emotionally wrenching and b) beneficial to my mood to take a break with writing happy things. We like happy things, right?

Anyway, I know it's only been a few weeks, but that's the story with my WIP. I will finish, I promise, and thanks so much to the regular readers for being so patient and supportive of the process. I've been having an overactive Catholic guilt thing happening with how long I've been keeping you waiting, especially after I established the expectation of weekly updates, but rest assured I haven't given up. I just need to get my shit together a bit more before I can do it justice, since I can't justify posting something that feels sloppy or rushed, just for the sake of hitting the finish line a bit faster.

So, yeah. Sorry, I guess? It'll be a little while longer, but don't give up on me yet. And while it might not be Kurt, my [ profile] d_hearts_c entry is due this week, and after [ profile] fossarian and [ profile] tracy_loo_who helped me pretty it up real nice, I'm really excited to post it. There is lots of AU cuteness and food porn. :)

In the meantime, you should go listen to the new Radiohead album, okay? It'll make everything better.

 Holy shit, John Cooper.

What the hell is with the last two episodes of Southland making me want to kill myself?

Was anyone else completely fucking destroyed by Never Let Me Go? Jesus H. I just devastated a whole box of tissue.

Love a duck, I just finished writing Chapter 10 of When Play Turns Bitter after nearly two weeks of obsessing/struggling with it, harassing [info]sansday, [info]cautionzombies, [info]bauble, and [info]shane_mayhem in one form or another for help (ah, the internet - for when you need to inflict yourself upon your friends and betas in as many ways as possible), and almost feeling like it might not get done at all.

In short:

Just felt the need to share. I was literally in tears writing it and now I think I have a date with some ice cream.
