Whoopee!

I'm so pleased with myself at the moment.

After all my griping and moaning, it looks like my writing muse has popped in for another visit. I wrote a ficlet yesterday while sorting the post, which only needs typing up and polishing, and today, from a (crap) line I came up with this afternoon, I've managed to almost complete at least 500 words for the Cats and Dogs challenge posted in spiketara. Anyone else having a go at this? The Spike/Tara one is looking really good, I'm dead proud of it already and I've only started fleshing out the outline.

I've just got to keep up the momentum now. AND NOT PROCRASTINATE. and I'm done. Anyone fancy beta-ing them when I've finished? Please? Never been beta-ed before, not sure how its done.

I think I'll give the challenge a go, if I can find time.

And if you want a beta, happy to oblige on editorial-type stuff. Supposed to be able to copy edit after all. Supposed to be a medical writer too, but hey...

Thanks for the offer. I'll take you up on that, hopefully tonight if I don't get too many BF intrruptions. Feel sorry for him, he's a Spike widower! What format do you need - it's a Word 2000 document at the moment.

That's fine - use Word every day. I'm running XP, but they are perfectly compatible.

My husband doesn't understand this Spike thing. He used to think he had a perfectly sane and normal wife, who loved only him. Pah! He's learning ;-)

I'm using XP too, so thats OK. Fingers crossed I'll finish one tonight, and i'll get it off to you. It's got some strange rambly sentences I hope work.

Although, Spike/Tara, its a combo of my Spike lust and this French bloke Bob used to work with in Blockbusters who, although not particularily attractive (he fancied himself as Jim Morrision), was the only person I've met who I could describe as mesmerisingly, breath-takingly sexy. My Spike is like that, but better looking.

The whole Spike thing is all Bob's fault anyway, he got me watching.

French, mesmerisingly sexy and he introduced you to Spike? Umm... what branch of Blockbusters does he work in?

OK - good luck with the fic! Look forward to seeing it!

No. Bob, bless 'im is the BF and isn't mesmerisingly sexy, but is responible for Spike.

Frank was MS and French.

Duh! Doesn't bode well for the beta-ing, does it?! Promise to concentrate from now on.

duh. Forgot to ask what's your email addy.

Send it to bogwitch@yahoo.co.uk if you want.

Anyone else having a go at this?

In the last two days, I've come up with about 1,000 lame ideas for it...does that count as having a go?

And I'm not sure what's involved in beta-ing EXACTLY, but I'm willing to give it my best shot if you'll let me...

Oops! LJ was playing up on me again. You go with Cass for the beta-ing; she's awesome! :-D

Um no. Write 'em up anyway. They might be good. You should've seen the crappy sentence I started with for this! Actually, I'm not a confident about this piece as I was when I posted. I was on a bit of a high, I think. Still gonna finish and post it though.

Neither am I! I think you look it over to see if it makes sense and it spelt right. A watch out for plot holes etc on longer bits.

Thanks for the offer anyway. I have another fic on the go you could look at if you really want to have a go! It's just not typed up and put together yet. I hate typing, thats whats delaying me half the time.

Sure I'll have a look and a go at it, if you can find the time and inclination to type it up some time -- be happy to, in fact ;-)

Half way there!

Do you want to send me an email address to send it to when I'm done?

You can send it to bogwitch@yahoo.co.uk if you like.

What, my e-mail address doesn't show up on my Info page? Or maybe I decided to disable it? Can't remember. Anyway, it's gamiila@hotmail.com

sorry, couldn't be arsed to look!

...and I couldn't be arsed to un-disable it!
