This is about the time I panic about Yuletide, regret signing up, castigate my past self, etc - it's happening right on schedule. This time I'm not as far along with my story as I usually am at this point, due in part to poor planning and also in part to some family stuff that couldn't be helped. The fact that I'm not closer to done at this point is causing some panicky flareups, but I think I'll be okay. The story will get done, right? Right???

I have a good chunk of words right now, but the problem is that I hate most of them, and am afraid I'm writing a story my recipient will not like, and am worried that I'm missing the super-obvious awesome story concept/beat/turn that would make it fantastic. I must remind myself that this feeling is also part of my Yuletide process and that in the end it's all worth it because Yuletide is awesome! It forces me to finish at least one story a year! Which is necessary, since the other story I've been poking at is an Ocean's 11 story that's been in progress for like four years and is certainly not worth all the time and effort, but at this point it's turned into some kind of weird power struggle between me and the dumb story. You will not defeat me, pointless Ocean's 11 story! Someday I will finish you!

ANYWAY. So, the Anonymous Holiday Love Meme has come around again and I have signed up again, because I can't resist those things, and because I think they are pretty fun. If you have a thread, let me know!

My thread is here.

Back to Yuletide!
