Do I have time to write for [ profile] holmestice?

Last round, I did a pinch hit. I also signed up for [ profile] thegameison_sh each month (500-750 words, only, so that's not too bad, right?).

And this, after saying I was done writing to deadlines.

*whimpers at my utter lack of self-control

It takes me forever to write... I can't just whip something out (usually), even if it's short. It's a painstaking process. 

But, but, but.

500-750 words per month is both doable (in terms of time, even knowing your layered writing process) and a nice exercise (IMO).

Given how much you have going on, perhaps the smaller bites are more manageable right now. So I'd say... no holmestice may be a good decision, unless you know something positive will be happening with your upcoming schedule.

Yeah. You're probably right.

The holidays will eat up October...

I'm not signing up unless/when I finish the Mystrade fest fic - I can't - I'm just so ugh!

I want to do it, but I don't want a deadline. You know?

You tell me, bro.

It's so tempting. But I don't want to write to a deadline any more than I have to. I just don't know... *considers

What's holding you back?

My bad habits. I am lavvyan´s nemesis, always repeatedly asking for extension. I regularly jot down a few vague ideas, procrastinate, procrastinate, procrastinate, get terrified, procrastinate, write it, NEED ONE MORE DAY FOR BETA, extension, repeat process. Do not want.

On the other hand, COMMENTS.

God, I am a fool.

You know we'd be happy to have you as a pinch-hitter.

ARE YOU PSYCHIC, I was just forbidding myself to offer this five minutes ago. If you trust me with this, I am very touched and in. Give me a shortened deadline so that I can stick to the tradition and ask for extension. 1000 words are not necessary in these cases, right?


Your Nemesis

ETA: I am rubbish at writing sex. It makes me spit my tea on the monitor. Just a warning.

You'll have dibs on our first (non-NC17) dropper-outer then. I'll make sure to set an extra brutal deadline for you to thumb your nose at. And no, 1K aren't necessary, though obviously we'd prefer that. Any preferred pairings? I'm too lazy to look up your last sign-up post.

I love having a nemesis, btw. Makes me feel important. ;)

Oh, happy to do any pairings except incest or... no, that´s it :D Frankly, I am instantly amused by all of them. So, if you wish to do so, throw and I´ll catch :) MUAHAHAHAHA.


God, I´ve missed this exchange :)

I'm sorry you can have it only twice a year. ;>

YAY for pinch-hitting. That's what I did last time and it was awesome. I caved and signed up this time. I can't believe how much material we've squeezed out of 3 episodes. Though, I guess, to be fair, we do have all of ACD Canon to draw from, technically. :)

And you were done so early! *glances at no one else, oh no*

BBC fandom really is ridiculously huge. And talented. And huge, omg. But what I love most about [ profile] holmestice is that we get people from almost all corners of fandom, all happily playing along. That's amazing. ♥

Good, I´m in then :) Just really, I´m hopeless with writing sex. Too ridiculous, as soon as I start, I cannot help putting RODS and SHAFTS and suchlike IN. *BADA-DA-DA-TCHUMMMM* *"I am 12" alert finished*

Nice to be back, even tentatively :)
