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!

Right!! The story will totally get done. And your person will love it. Because there's still plenty of time to finish and revise as needed.

And hee - I have a popslash story that is similar to your Ocean 11 power struggle. I pull it out once a year and poke at it.

Thank you for the vote of confidence! I did make headway on a new version of the story that I (desperately) hope will work out. And also, thank you for the Christmas card, I loved it!!

Tell me more about this popslash story!! Maybe we should challenge each other to finish our fic nemeses or something. :)

I WILL NOT ADMIT DEFEAT TO THIS DUMB STORY! It's funny because I have tons of abandoned pieces of fic on my hard drive but for some reason this one just bugs.

And thank you for the kind Yuletide comment! You're doing it this year too, right? I love your stuff and can't wait to read it!

OMG I've barely even started my Yuletide fic! Seriously, I have 38 words. I should start freaking out about this; thanks for the reminder.

We can do this!!! I seriously can't believe how late it is. I'm behind on everything holiday-wise, not just Yuletide, so at least I'm not singling the challenge out - I'm ignoring all of my responsibilities equally! :)

How are you enjoying life in your new place? Hope you're having fun!
